Time for Mexico. Sun, Surf and what ever!
After spending the last 4 weeks in Ontario, Canada visiting family, it was time to get on the road again.
Werner and i arrived at Playa Del Carmen on the 28th December 2011 and booked into our hotel, the Real Playa Hotel and Beach Resort. All Inclusive, one and only time. The hotel was pretty good for a 2 or 3 star joint and the location was excellent, right on 5th Avenue, right near all the action.
Now, this place, Playa is really cool. OK, it might be full of tourists, and all the usual stuff but it has a great vibe. We happened to arrive at the start of the BPM festival, the biggest electo-techno festival in the world, I think thats what it is or what it was. The place was pumping, day and night, night and day.
The problem with All Inclusive is you do not do as much stuff as you normally would as you try and drink as much as possible to get your money back 8)
We met some really nice Mexican guys on the trip, nicknamed Big Cups as they would always carry these 1 litre plastic mugs around all day full of all sorts of nasty shit. Another Canadian couple there were also really cool, Ike and Sabrina. They new all the people from the BPM festival and got me into the VIP section for free on a couple of occassions. Most of the days were spent lying around the beach club during the day and partying at night on 5th Ave. All in all, i would return to Playa for sure as it sure beats the ass of Cancun.
