We stayed in Dos playas, Cancum . The apt. had the bare nessessities but cleaned everyday and change of sheets and towels.The staff were friendly and helpful. It has its own small pool but with the beach, where the sand is white and the sea is green, close by,was often ignored. It has a harbour where the boats to the Islands departed everyday.We went on the boat trip to the Island of merjeries.It was a brilliant trip. Complimentry drinks, fun and games, and music on board started you off in the holiday mood.Once on the island there were many things on offer for you to do.The inclusive meal was excellent with many choices and a mexican band played to you while you ate,giving you the feeling that you really are in the Carribean! After our return from a trip in a glass bottomed boat to see the coral reef we went to see the sharks where we had the opportunity to hold one in our arms ..and kissed it! Recommended tours are, Chichen -Ista for those that like ancient history and all its glory. Xcaret with its underground and mayon rivers,a must for all snorklers, Take a sea trek,walk on the bottom of the sea! ..an experience of a life time .Swim with the dolphins,feel the love and tranquility from these wonderful creatures and many more activities. The day ended by a spectacular night show of sights and sounds of mexico,s regional music and dance. And for all lovers of snorkling a visit to Xel-Ha is a must with it's parrot fish lagoon. Enjoy the many activities, sea trek. swim with dolpins , walk the path of wind, Mo's flight, snuba adventures and many more . every one of the tours gave great value for money. all very enjoyable ..We enjoyed the whole aspect of Cancum and recommend it. The area is beautiful the food good the people friendly..A lovely visit.. first time..but not the last.
