Tulum, Playa Del Carmen & Cancun

Well it has been a little while since I last wrote so I am struggling to remember what has happened since then!
Tulum was lovely but apparently the beach is nowhere near as nice as it once was. The sea was great though, really clear. We stayed in a beach cabana which was very basic but nice for the experience! All the room had was 2 beds and 2 mosquito nets and one light.. It was so peaceful in the evenings though and great to fall asleep listening to the sound of the sea. We stayed there for 2 nights then made our way to Playa Del Carmen which was a bit of a culture shock - Pretty much like an America within Mexico! It's a cool place though and would be great with a holiday maker's budget.. I think you could make the most of it that way. Playa Del Carmen and Cancun seem pretty similar but I have only arrived in Cancun today after returning from Cuba and I spent one day passing through Cancun on the way to Isla Mujeres. The beach at Playa Del Carmen was another beautiful beach and well worth a visit if you are passing through.
We have a good couple of days planned in Cancun now.. A few drinks tomorrow night to sample the Cancun nightlife (I am assuming lots of American students on spring break) and a little visit to the Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday night.. Another one ticked off the list for me and Wendy
