We can’t believe it ourselves, but we’re in Mexico! After a 10-hour flight from London, we touched down at Cancun’s international airport at 15:30 and then made our way south to our resort. The journey from the airport to the hotel took about 40 mins and the scenery along the way reminded us of Vic Falls in Zimbabwe – very flat and very dry.

At around 19:00, we arrived in Playa Del Carmen, a coastal resort town that is situated along the Yucatán Peninsula’s Riviera Maya strip of the Caribbean shoreline. The area is very beautiful and is well known for its palm-lined beaches and coral reefs. During the day, the sea constantly buzzes with jet skis and speed boats whilst the beach is packed with sun worshippers and volleyball players. Today, we spent a few hours on the beach, enjoying the beautiful views and the smell of sea and sun tan lotion.

This is going to be a great holiday 🙂
