“I fell in love with Tulum. It’s such a peaceful and beautiful town! And I really enjoyed our tour to Cobá. The pyramid peeking out above the jungle looks so dramatic!” Mary-Lou, USA
“Day trips we really enjoyed were to Uxmal and Rio Lagartos, as they are off-beat. Uxmal is an ancient Mayan village south of Mérida. Río Lagartos is a small fishing village on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula. At its lagoon you can watch all kinds of birds, like pink flamingos.” Linda & Norman, Canada
“As Thai food lovers, we like to eat at Babe’s Noodles & Bar. Especially the Pad Thai is delicious! And we enjoyed our day trip to Cozumel a lot. The city has just the right size to explore it on foot and there are a lot of things to do on the island, like snorkeling or swimming with dolphins.” Martina & Hans, Finland
“We spent an unforgettable day on a fishing excursion we took recently with Rusty Hook. Our favorite bar is Kitxen, for the live rock music they usually play. And Zenzi beach club, it has a great atmosphere, bringing together locals and tourists. We always meet nice people there.” Marge & Steven, USA
“We like Playa Mamitas a lot because the beach is big and the music they play gives you that beach holiday feeling. The perfect place to relax, get a tan and do some people-watching!” Patricia & Jean-Pierre, Switzerland
“When we visit Playa del Carmen we just want to relax, preferably with a delicious drink and some good tunes. Our favorite local musician is Mike Grabow, so you’ll most likely find us where he is performing at. We also like the live music they play at Wah Wah Beachbar.” John & Nicole, USA
“For the real Mexican feeling we go to Restaurante Nativo: delicious food in an authentic atmosphere. Another one of our favorites is Tarraya, with tables directly on the beach. As a photographer, Gordon loves to capture the sunrise on a walk along the beach or through the city.” Jean & Gordon, Canada
