I arrived last week and spent a day walking around playa del Carmen. It's pretty developped and quite a party town but I wasn't impressed. So I took the ferry to Cozumel and stayed at a really nice cheap place with a pool! I did a few dives which were really nice! Although I am partial to Bonaire still. And its quite overrun with tour ships. Then I heard there were whale sharks so I decided to change plans and go on up to isla holbox. It's a really chill island not very developed with beautiful sand roads and no cars only golf carts. All the places I have been to have been very nice And I really like this place although it's the first place without AC and it's quite hot here but I survived Ecuador just fine without AC most of the trip. So far the best meals were a taco that came with a dish a melted cheese. I am not sure how I was supposed to eat it but I spooned the cheese onto the tortilla. I also had some hot out of the oven corn bread with nice full kernels of corn (ok yes I went back twice) and also had what looked like a turnover with a cheese and tomato filling. It was good but a bit stance basically a turnover with pizza filling and they sprinkled sugar on the top. Other than the sugar it was good. Well I am going on a snorkel tomorrow I am excited about so I hoPe it's good. So far I have been very impressed with the places I have stayed. I will head south after I am done here to go to tulum then back to Belize so far one of my favorite countries. Then hopefully after Belize I will start to spend less. Diving is an expensive sport so I will do a dive in tulum and a few in Belize then hopefully not too many until maybe costa rica.
It's also nice that I have had wifi everywhere I stayed ok it hasn't always worked well but it's still nice.
I started the trip off grumpy cause for the first time in a long time I overpacked. But I need to focus on the positive and try to get as much out of this time as I can.
