Playa Del Carmen

Tourists, tourists everywhere!

Happy Easter everyone!

We had booked a hotel room in Playa Del Carmen over the easter weekend as we knew it'd be really busy everywhere...we weren't really prepared for just how touristy it would be here though! The beach is very pretty if you stand and look out to sea, but there is literally no room to move for sweaty bodies!


The main strip is one long drag of souvenir shops and restaurants and oddly loads of silver shops, so lots of wandering and trying not to spend money has occured!



Don't worry you've all got lovely gifts to come though...


The Hotel is lovely thankfully and we have got a top little room (which comes with its own swan!)


and there is even a swimming pool surrounded by giant trees and lots of plants!



We have really been hiding from the mad throng of drunken yanks by lazing by the pool and topping up those deep professional tans...



The hotel has an ace restaurant attached and we signed on for the shrimp dinner, which is probably the best thing I have seen, the shrimp were massive and they just brought out this big pot!!!


I have no idea what these things live on as a gang of them could probably eat me if they got the chance, needless to say we made sure they would never get the chance to bother any other swimmers by munching them all down!!!



Can't believe we have less than a week left in Mexico now!! We are heading to Isla Mujeres tomorrow (just off the coast of Cancun) to try and get a bit of peace and quiet before we hit the sleepy little town of Las Vegas!! Sooooooooo excited about seeing you all, lots of love and hugs, C&R xxx

'Morning. 8 a.m just had breakfast and could still eat that plate of shrimps. How big are they? So many people! It's like Laura's stage - the actors spoil the view!!! Love the pirate look in the silver picture, Russ. So excited now. Two weeks to seeing you both again - an old married couple! Actually been sunny here for Easter so working in the garden. Stay safe and hurry home. xxx
