Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Our holiday in the middle of a holiday. We spent a week in Playa del Carmen with some good friends, sitting on the beach, eating tacos and swimming every day. The beaches are spectacular, with water so warm you can stay in for hours. We snorkelled with turtles in Akumal and swam with schools of fish off the beach. In Tulum we stayed in a little beach hut and chilled for a few more days, swinging in hammocks and visiting more beaches. We explored the cenotes in the area, swimming through caves in crystal clear fresh water. This part of Mexico is the perfect place to relax.
