We left Isla Holbox the day before yesterday and made our way to Cancun which genuinely is (as mum called it) the Gold Coast on steroids.
Met up withe the Aussie guys who we were traveling with previously who are going to come to Cuba with us and had a very, very big night out at a typical Cancun pool party, complete with all you can drink passes, bikini contests and late night (early morning?) ocean swims.
The night ended / day started with another trip down to the hotel zone to watch the sun rise. Needless to say, yesterday was a bit of a write-off, with only two trips out of the hostel to get some tacos and get more money out.
We’re staying at a pretty cool hostel in the Central Zone (outside of the Hotel Zone) which is full of really lovely people at the moment. Today, the owner of the hostel has said that she’ll take us out to Isla Mujeres on her boyfriends superyacht (for a charge, of course), but I’m not so sure that it’ll actually eventuate at the rate that everyone moves in this place – slow in the day and as fast as possible at night.
We had a quiet night last night so will hopefully make it today to book flights to Cuba for tomorrow or the day after. Hopefully they wont be for early tomorrow morning, because I have the feeling that tonight’s going to be a big night as well.
