    Wilkommen in Mexiko - Cancún

    February 23 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Wir sind gestern Abend also in Mexiko gelandet, genauer gesagt in Cancun und starten somit unser zweites Land auf unserer Reise.
    Untergekommen sind wir das erste mal in einem Hostel, in einem 10er Schlafsaal im 3ten Stock, dessen Bad draußen neben dem Pol ist - macht Sinn 😅. Die meisten Mitbewohner bekommen wir nie zu Gesicht, hier ist Dauerparty angesagt. Auch im Hotel schallt ununterbrochen Musik durch die Bude. Viel Schlaf ist nicht drin.
    Wir fühlen uns irgendwie überfordert und gleichzeitig erfreut im Angesicht dieses touristischen Schlaraffenlandes. Die erste Aktion ist es erstmal, sich einen Schockoriegel im Supermarkt zu kaufen - WOW!
    Cancun besteht aus einer Stadt und einem langem seperaten Strandstrand, wo sich sie Zona Hotelaria befindet. Nachdem wir so einigermaßen ausgeschlafen hatten, begaben wir uns erstmal auf Essenssuche und kauften vor Freude den halben Supermarkt leer - wer weiß, ob wir nochmal sowas sehen..
    Nachmittags ging es dann mit dem Bus etwa 15 min völlig unkompliziert zum karibischen Sandstrand, in den wir uns natürlich gleich verliebten. Hach, wie schön kann das Leben sein. 🏖🥰👙🌞 Es folgte eine kleine Selfieorgie, aber das muss halt auch mal sein.
    Dann schlenderten wir noch durch die Hotelstadt mit den vielen Einkaufsläden und gingen, gefühlt nach Monaten, mal wieder lecker essen 🤗 Zurück im Hostel ist natürlich weiterhin Party angesagt. Mal sehen ob wir die Nacht wieder fast alleine verbringen.

    June 12, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Heute wurde der Tag aufgeteilt: Zuerst schwimmen im Meer, am Strand liegen, lesen, Musik hören. Dann shoppen und Pizza essen. Beide Teile waren sehr erfolgreich! Das bekannte BOGOF-Prinzip hat wieder zugeschlagen.Read more

    RIU Cancun

    January 10 in Mexico ⋅ 🌧 26 °C

    Stopped in the RIU Cancun for some lunch before hearing back to our own RIU.

    While this resort was nice looking the beach was tiny and the pool area was also quite small and cramped with people. Much prefer where we are staying.Read more

    Off to Cancun

    November 28, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After relaxing at the hostel beach in the morning, I went to the island's ferry terminal to head to Cancun for one last night. The hostel in the hostel zone next to the lagoon seemed to be more like a hotel, looked like a promising accommodation for the last night! There, I met an Albanian girl living in LA and we went out for typical Mexican dinner - I tried a Quesadilla:) After, I had an early night, the last night in Mexico.

    Ps: Beware the crocodiles 😱😁🐊

    Cancun adventures

    March 20 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    So there isn't alot to do here in Cancun unless you want to spend alot of money, and tip atleast 20% 😂🤑 so alot of our time has been spent on the beach, drinking cocktails but also our shop bought tinnies and sometimes a pack lunch... Like true Yorkshire folk lol 😂😂 but we're still having a great time, trying to enjoy our last few days before heading home. We had to make it to Cancuns Hard Rock to check out their celeb gear and get our hands on the yummy Hard Rock food... As their onion rings are amazing 😋 although it was interesting seeing how different the centre was to where we're staying (glad we're not in the centre 😂). Yesterday we had a change and decided to spend sometime in the hotels swimming pool... As I was desparate for a proper swim... (plus I know all leisure centres will be closed on return to the UK 😔,so have to make the most of it now!) Last night we also found alittle local Mexican cafe down one of back alleys just outside the main 'Blackpool-esque' centre (don't worry no funny business haha 😂) , it was quiet but the food was delicious! I had the battered fish tacos with avocado, salad and cilhipole sauce and zach had a beef taco along with a gringas pastor, which is a large fried taco filled with seasoned kabab pork, and topped with fresh pineapple and corriander 🍍🌮😋😋. Today we yet again decided to have another sunbreathing and sea swimming day, but not before renting a jet-ski to have abit of fun on the water.... It definitely woke us up for the day 😂Read more

    Cancun beachin'

    March 18 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    So after many months of travelling, 5 to be exact it's come to a reluctant end due to the coronavirus making our original plans to fly to Australia and stay with friends for a month impossible 😭😔 we booked everything in advance but a few days before we were due to fly out from Mexico City, we heard Australia, and seems the rest of the world including the USA were imposing 14 day isolations and shutting borders, so after much thought and stress trying to cancel flights with hopes of refunds, we had to sadly scrap our plans and stay in Mexico until we can get a flight home to the UK! Which isn't all bad 😉 as we had 2 options; option 1: stay put in Mexico City for 6 more days until our flight home from Cancun or option 2: fly back to Cancun early and book an awesome hotel on the beach!! 😂😁 I mean I don't know about anyone else but Option 2 was 100% clear for us, even if Cancun is alittle like the Blackpool of Mexico 😂😂 luckily we did our research and we got a lovely hotel out from the centre, and party animals, with an amazing part of the beach... Calm and quite before we return to the apocalypse in 6 days! Our time here has been mainly eating (per usual) buffet breakfast.. Oh yes!! 😋 drinking cocktails on the beach and trying to forgot the panic that is going on in the world right now.Read more
