I booked a return flight from Amsterdam to Cancún. Cancún is supposed to be the most touristy place on the Yucatan Peninsula. Because I wanted to start my three weeks holiday relaxing on the beach I took the local bus to Playa del Carmen immediately after arrival.
The beach in Playa del Carmen was the whitest beach I had ever seen. The sand felt soft under the feet. A few days passed without leaving the beach and drinking and dining on Quinta Av, in the evening. When my skin was coloured by the sun (sunburnt...), I was ready to see some more of Yucatan, Mexico.
