I know this post is a little late but I wanted to share with you guys a few pictures of my holiday to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We stayed at the lovely Riu Tequila Hotel, a brilliant hotel only a few minutes walk from the beach. I had such a fun time lazing in the sun with my Kindle Fire (reading The Host if you were interested), and spending the evenings taking advantage of the all inclusive cocktails.
We had the amazing opportunity to visit some of the best beaches in the world. Tulum beach has been voted the second best in the world. It is like a deserted island with gorgeously soft sand and amongst ancient Mayan ruins. Also the beach in Playa del Carmen is one of the top ten, it is covered in picturesque palm trees and has lovely clear waters.
While there we went on two excursions. The first was to the natural water park Xel-Ha, an absolutely beautiful lagoon where you can explore the rainforest, go swimming with dolphins, go snorkelling and jump off cliffs into the sea (proud that I gave it a go but OMG scary)
We also went on the Fat Cat Catamaran trip where they take you snorkelling searching for turtles. A trip I would really recommend as all food and drinks are included and the views are lovely.
