Waves breaking on the reef, San Pedro

The beach, Playa del Carmen

Tourist heaven


Reluctantly we had to drag ourselves away from Caye Caulker.

A 30 minute water taxi ride took us to the island of Ambergris Caye and the town of San Pedro (possibly the inspiration for the Madonna song La Isla Bonita?). Much more developed and commercial than Caye Caulker with large hotels and resort complexes and a lot of traffic.

The following day we travelled into Mexico following a 2 hour water taxi ride to Corozal and the border. We ended up at Playa del Carmen, a brash resort (but with a great beach) with the usual tourist trappings - not our cup of tea at all.
