Cancun, Mexico

I went on a seven day break, all inclusive break to Cancun with a couple of friends.

Following a great American Airlines flight on the way out, we had a nightmare of a transit through US immigration, and only just made our connection with 6 minutes to spare. Once we eventually got to Mexico, however I did have a lot fun. This was a different experience from my last trip to the region, which was a family holiday.

I spent my days doing water sports like jet skiing, parasailing, had a whole day at the expensive Xcaret Water Park, and explored the local markets and shopping malls. Going to La Vaquita nightclub in Cancun was most memorable for the journey back to the hotel by local bus, which all of sudden turned into an impromptu party-bus.

Sadly, I wasn’t impressed by our hotel, The Royal Solaris Cancun. The rooms and pool were clean enough, but the food was limited and lacking taste.

All in all, this holiday was a bit of a mixed bag for a variety of reasons. But there’s something to learn from every experience.
