May is normally my travel month with my daughter as we celebrate our birthdays together. However, due to Covid19 this past 2020 and 2021 we sadly missed it. Since it’s May, all our travel memories are coming back everyday and I sometimes feel sad and at the same time happy as we are so blessed that my daughter and I were able to travel frequently and see other sides of the world.
Last May, 2018 we went to Mexico and explore the beautiful Playa Del Carmen, Cancun and Tulum. I did an article about Tulum, Mexico last year showing beautiful photos of the pyramids, the beaches and cenotes and a little part of Cancun, Mexico.
Cenotes are sinkholes or a natural pits resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposed the groundwater. The water is cold and very refreshing especially after swimming from the salt water or ocean or from hiking.
Playa Del Carmen is very like Cancun, meaning very touristy. Most tourists go there to enjoy the warm weather, the beautiful beaches and of course drinks, food, party which are part of the all inclusive hotels and resorts accommodations. But if you’re one of those explorers and history lovers, Tulum would be the best destination in Mexico. You may not find all inclusive hotel or resorts accommodations in Tulum, but there are a few beautiful hotels there too and most of the historic ruins and cenotes are there.
Anyways, when you’re visiting Mexico in the future, I am sure you’ll enjoy the history, warm weather, beautiful sun, amazing cenotes, beaches, food, tequila, rum cake and more. One thing that’s very important to know, it is very cheap there too which is great!
Here’s some photos of Playa Del Carmen… Enjoy!
And I can’t wait for the world to be back to normal and be able to travel again!
