I flew into Cancun with a rambunctious crowd of college kids, ready for a few drinks and to begin chasing women around the beaches. Then I got on a bus with just a few of these college kids, most of whom were European, and got off in Playa Del Carmen. While waiting for the ferry to leave, I happened to witness this particular activitywhich I cannot name, but left a lasting first impression on me:
To say the least I immediately felt that I was in a different country. My time in Playa Del Carmen felt a like it was cut short after that. I was interested to see more, and no doubt will very soon. The Playa is known as the chic European alternative to Cancun. This I can personally confirm, as in the brief time I was there, I noticed mainly quiet Europeans on in the squares, and a lot of men in speedos on the beaches (very European) as well as a soccer game taking place over a large portion of the beach. The playa unfortunately does not have the scuba diving I was looking to get into, so I am now on my way to Cozumel. This is just the beginning of a month long excursion through the Yucatan. Follow me the rest of this trip through the Yucatan, while I explore different Maya Temples, scuba dive some of the best reefs in the world, and get lost (hopefully not desperately so) in some of the jungle reserves out here. It is bound to be a wild trip, and as long as I have my computer I would like to share it with all of you. Thanks for viewing this post!
