The next day I caught a bus from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen which is a resort town that has sprung up in the last 15 years to cater to the tourists that travel to the island of Cozumel. There is apparently some fantastic diving along the reefs around Cozumel, but for $70 USD for 2 dives (not including equipment) I thought I'd give it a miss.
Still I had a great time swimming in more of the Caribbean and the following day I took a ferry out to Cozumel and hired a scooter to take me around the island. The eastern side has even better beaches and took my leave to thoroughly enjoy them. I even ventured back around to the western side to a bar I was recommended to go to called the Money Bar where you can sit and enjoy drinks and food and also jump off the waterfront into the sea.
That evening after heading back to Playa, I went out with an Israeli guy and a Mexican girl for some food and a few drinks then headed back for a quiet night at the hostel. Playa seemed like a lovely place but along with Cozumel are the most expensive places in Mexico, so I was glad to be leaving the next day.
