Jul 3, 2006 - The Cruise (or the vacation prior to the vacation)

On Monday the 3rd of July we disembarked from Mobile, AL on a Carnival Cruise Lines trip to Cozumel, Mexico. Having never been on a cruise before, I could only expect what I have been told about cruises - that there is tons of food, lots to drink, and kids love it. Surprisingly, the cruise exceeded my expectations. 19 of us (Abby's parents; 3 Siblings with spouse's; and 9 nieces and nephews) invaded the ship. After a car parking fiasco we boarded the ship, put our stuff in our rooms and began to party. Now I am not saying that Abby's family...

Mar 30, 2006 - Cancun, Mexico - ahhh, the beach!

After a full day in the jungle, crawling in and around the ruins of the Mayan city of Palenque, followed by a thirteen-hour over-night bus trip, we finally arrive at our resort in Cancun. However, as we climbed out of the taxi, the bellman's reception is decidedly "cool". As he saw us crawl out of the taxi, and put on our tired and dirty backpacks, he was quick to tell our taxi driver to "wait right there!". From his body language and the expression on his face it was clear that he did not believe we could possibly belong at his lovely...

Jan 26, 2006 - Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is a beach town 45 minutes south of Cancun. It wasn't hit as seriously as Cancun by the hurricane, and there are a lot more tourists attractions here that are still in business. Arriving in Playa really felt like coming back to civilization after being in remote villages for two weeks. In a way it was comforting to be here, being near all the modern amenities and seeing signs for WalMart (yes, there is one here. scary...) Burger King and all the things I am used to seeing at home. On the other hand, I actually feel there...

May 31, 2005 - Leaving Playa del Carmen

After a few more lazy days and cups of lime sorbetto, I am finally leaving Playa del Carmen. I haven't done much lately, including going to the beach. I've caught a nasty cold that keeps me up at night coughing and I've got a sinus headache, so I've had to force myself just to leave our room each day. I was hoping to do some scuba diving while I was here, but that is definitely not going to happen as long as I am stuffed up, so I am a little disappointed. For our last night in Playa, and Lauren's last night on this vacation, we decided to...

May 27, 2005 - Playa del Carmen

We have been back on the coast now for a couple of days. Inland Mexico was interesting, but hot, and at least now we can go for a swim to cool off. We took a 9:30 bus from Valladolid on Wednesday morning and got into Playa del Carmen shortly after lunch. My mother had come across a hostal with lots of good reviews on the internet, so we decided to check it out, and what a find! It's just three blocks from the beach, and, as far as hostals go, it's awesome. It's not really high on character, but it's brand new and spotless, with very...

May 22, 2005 - Playa del Carmen

A welcome relief from Cancun, Playa is more Byron than Gold Coast. Great beach, shops, restaurants and bars but no buildings over three stories. We basically bummed about for a few days working on the tan and reading wth regular beer breaks. The photos speak for themselves - we felt like we were on holiday from travelling.

Apr 6, 2005 - Playa del Carmen, les caraibes des US

Le choc... Des gens, des voitures, ... et des dollars americains !!!!! Retour difficile a la civilisation, a la consommation, au bruit, au temps present, Ici, c'est comme une annexe des Etats-Unis... tout est concu pour les touristes americains. Playa del carmen essaie malgre tout ne ne pas suivre le meme chemin que Cancun. Les constructions immobilieres semblent controlees et la cote n'est pas trop denaturee. Pour combien de temps ? J'ai retrouve une copine (Marie-Laure) de Cilou et de Tom. Melrose place, vous connaissez la serie...

Mar 27, 2005 - Playa Del Carmen

Well after a nightmare in San Christobal I decided to head off Straight to Palya Del Carmen for some well earned RnR. The beaches here are really clear and strikingly blue. We stayed at the usual place on the beach although the prices have risen since I was last here so no beach front room this time. Since doing my PADI Advanced Diving in Krabi I have been dying to get back in the water, especially as Playa is just off Cozumel Island where Jacque Cousteau made a lot of documentries in the 70s. I decided on a two tank drift dive off of a...

Mar 9, 2005 - Playa Del Carmen

We left Isla Mujeres and caught the afternoon ferry back to cancun, and then jumped on a bus down to Playa del Carmen. PDC is much like the Noosa scene of back home - beautiful beached, a really nice pedestrian mall with lots of cafes, beautiful shops and some really cool bars and restaurants - cept it was Noosa with heaps of loud americans. Tash was in love with it.. She finally had a chance to have a look at some clothes shops since San Fran and just really liked the place. We had a few more days of beach time, just swimming and...

Mar 3, 2005 - Playa Del Carmen - Part I

Wednesday, 16th of February; Arrived at 7am to miami airport where I caught an airport shuttle to Hollywood airport in Ft. Lauderdale. Had to wait for my connecting flight departing at 12,00. Landed in Cancun at 14,00 where I took the bus to Playa del Carmen and checked into the first hotel I found by the bus station and seemed ok. That afternoon I went to the Abyss dive shop to say HI to Diego, Oscar, Mike and was so much fun seeing them again after one year. Had a bite to eat in Dr.Tacos then passed by the Beer Bucket and La Rana Cansada...

Feb 10, 2005 - Playa Del Carmen - Mexican Yucatan

For our February vacation this year Zig and I and our friend Carlie from my workplace, went to Playa Del Carmen in the Mexican Yucatan about 60 KM South of Cancun. On Feb 10 we got up at 3:30 AM and prepared to get our trip started. We had a 7:30 to 8:00 AM departure on Continental and arrived in Cancun about 4:30PM. After we cleared customs we took a 1 hour bus ride to Playa Del Carmen. This bus ride was worlds away from our last experience in Puerto Villarta. We couldn't see the ground through the floor! This was a luxurious bus with...
