Playa del Carmen is a beautiful place to visit, with warm waters and great food! 

I stayed at this cute little hotel called La Tortuga Hotel & Spa for 5 days. It was a great deal, you even get a voucher from the front desk for a free breakfast at their restaurant each day. 
The food was amazing and I highly recommend getting one of their blended juices- so yummy and refreshing!
The room I stayed in was super small, but it didn’t bother me at all since I was only there to sleep. 
This hotel is literally walking distance to everything; restaurants, shops and the beautiful blue ocean.
I did rent a car during my visit though to see some of the ruins in Tulum and Coba. I would recommend renting a car if you are staying longer as it is a cheaper option compared to taking a taxi.
 
During my stay, I also took the ferry to Cozumel to snorkel with some fish. Later that day, I took the Chocolates Kaokao Factory tour! I LOVE CHOCOLATE! This was one of the highlights of my trip. The tour was really short, but the owner of the little factory was extremely passionate about chocolate making; it was so inspiring. Anyone with that much pride in what they do is awesome in my book. I would love to go back because they only sell their amazing chocolate within Mexico. If anyone ever visits Cozumel, please buy me some of their chocolate!  

Another cool place I went was Xcaret! download-3

Very relaxing to just take a nap in the afternoon after exploring the park. There are quite a lot to see though so I didn’t lay around too much because I only had a one day pass. Also, don’t miss the show! 

  Ruins are the BEST! 

Tulum was beautiful to walk around and has a great view of the download-6crystal clear ocean from the hills, but I enjoyed Coba a lot more. The place was so much more interesting. I rode on a bike tuk tuk tour, the driver gave an in depth explanation about the place. It was pretty awesome, and I highly recommend it if you go.
