We left the hotel at 7am and our flight was at 10.10am to Dallas/Fort Worth. The flight was pretty uneventful. The seats on American Airlines are pretty uncomfortable and it’s funny because all the air hostess are quite old, ours are all pretty young.We didn’t have long until our connecting flight to Cancun so we scoffed down some McDonalds and reboarded. Turns out the plane was delayed 50 minutes because this couple that checked in didn’t board, so we had to wait for them to find their bags and take them off, then they turned up and we had to wait for them to find their bags again and load them! Getting from the Cancun airport to Puerto Morelos was pretty simple. We walked pasted all the touts and taxi people to the ADO Playa Del Carmen bus and got 2 tickets for 128 pesos (10 paseos is about $1) then we had to get a cab from the bus stop and that was 20 paesos.
This is a sleepy little fishing village and it is low season so it seems almost empty. Our hotel is right on the beach and I can hear the Caribbean sea lapping at the beach from our room. The room is big and clean… Life is beautiful.
The next day we spent sleeping, swimming and eating. I read the hunger games book. We pretty much had the whole beach/town to ourselves. There was a dive shop next to our room so we saw a few people going diving, but we decided to just stay and relax.
