We check in in our hotel, turn the airco on and relax a bit (lying on the bed and look around in the hotel)
At 20:00 we are being briefed by our agent. We recieve the hotel vouchers and the personalized description of the round trip we are going to make in the next two weeks. Advice is given, questions asked, and then we are on our own:)
We have booked the round trip in cooperation with www.mexicoonline.nl
I must say that they and their partner Solana Tours (in Mexico) did a great job in putting this roundtrip together.
It is dark soon. We go out to eat and look around. A short walk on the beach: soft sand, flat water (no surf), then we enter the high street (this will not be the name, but when you have been there, you will recognise the street: full of life, shops and restaurants)
I buy the Mexico soccer shirt cheap, but still to expensive:).
We have our late night meal in a restaurant I forgot the name, but it was good. Private parties were going onall around us. Musicians come in and play (for tips) and vendors try to sell you goods or make a picture of you and your love, both with a sombrero. They never came with us:( LOL!
Everywhere cajeros, cash machines, dedicated for paying US Dollars or Pesos. This is commercialized Mexico.
Late we return in our room.
