Now whilst Cancun has beautiful beaches and some of the bluest water I’ve ever seen, it wasn’t really our scene. We’ve got nothing against Cancun specifically. It has amazing resorts, restaurants, shopping and partying opportunities, however it just wasn’t our style of place. None the less, we spent 2 nights here had some great cheaaaaap food, 5 tacos for 25 pesos ($2 Aussie), corn on the cob w/ parmesan, butter & chilli for $1 and an entire bag of churros for $2! Perfect!
Isla Holbox is really well known for its proximity to an abundance of whale sharks during their migratory period here, and resultantly lots of people come here to swim with these amazing creatures in tour groups.
That being said we’ve had plenty of friends who have done tours and said they were handled quite well with good instructions about giving the sharks space etc.
Next stop.. Playa del Carmen. We're not sure what to expect from this well know party town.
