Daily trips to the beach, delicious food, stunning resorts and plenty of amazing day trips… It’s fair to say Playa Del Carmen is a Mexican paradise.
If you’re heading to Playa del Carmen, then count yourself lucky. I’ve spent a lot of time there over the last few years.

Hey Nadine’s on an amazing trip around Mexico, Belize and Guatemala with Contiki!
I’ve really enjoyed Hey Nadine’s videos as she explores Mexico, Belize and Guatemala with Contiki. She’s been travelling almost the same route I did towards the end of 2014, and it’s brought back a lot of memories!
In her latest video she visits Caye Caulker – the location of THIS epic story where I got stuck in a giant storm! Luckily for her, the weather wasn’t an issue! However, it wasn’t so good when she got to Tikal… and that was the same for me. I’ve never seen rain like it! Anyway… enjoy!

The narrow tapas restaurant was buzzing with people chatting loudly at stools along the bar, and large iberico hams hanging behind it.

It looked full but thankfully they managed to find a spot for us at the bar – a great position for people watching! Service was charming, and staff checked regularly if we were happy or wanted to order any food or drinks.
Reliving my time in Spain, I decided to order the house Tempranillo. It was always a safe option there, and this one didn’t disappoint. If only it was 2 Euros a glass, rather than almost £4! Continue reading REVIEW: Condesa Restaurant, Covent Garden, London
