    Xcaret is pretty awesome if you have the time to get down to it.

    thx fellas

    I did xplor in 2015. pretty cool. I looked up Xcaret and Xenote with my son and we both agreed we thought Xenote was the place to be. We have a jolly roger pirate ship and snorkel along with a company dinner thursday, doing this friday and just relaxing at the hotel saturday.

    I am not a hotel guy but the company drops thousands on these 5 star resorts and the damn thing has a water park so unless we show up and decide we should adventure again on saturday, itll probably be a chill there and maybe venture into town for local food kind of day.

    My wife and I are going back to Cancun the last week of April. We love to just hang out on the beach, chill, eat, xxx, sleep, repeat. I may play golf one day. I've been threatening to rent a car and drive to Merida to see the architecture, I may do that.

    I REALLY want to see tulum and chichen itza but with only have 2 free days there, I cant force myself to spend one of them in a bus for 6 hours.

    I did go to Tulum about 5 years ago. Worth the trip.. iguanas galore.

    This will probably be of no use to you, but as close as I'll ever get is I just finished Season 2 of Trapped... On Prime. Icelandic crime thriller... aka Nordic Noir.

    I watched Season 1 a year or so ago on Netflix but Season 2 is on prime. Not sure where Season 1 is now.
    I don't mind subtitles. Hell, I have to use them now even if shows are in English... lol

    Season 2 had a bang up ending, really good I thought

    Last day of work, heading to Cancun Weds. Found out we have a company shuttle saturday down to playa de carmen. I hear its the best downtown area in the region. Stoked. I'm eat so many damn tacos.

    Playa is the only place I've seen in Mexico with topless beaches.
    I seem to recall it was at the Sheraton. Shouldn't matter to a geezer like me, but I'm just old, not dead!

    So, the shuttle doesn't go there according to my interary. She was off. A damn Shame. I've heard of that beach too and wanted to check it out. Oh well

    Google says it's a 45 minute drive so I'll probably not go

    Not the best time to travel but nonetheless I'm in CancĂșn. I gotta say the Mexicans have their act together, at least where I'm staying. Airport is immaculate, only outdoor dining, everyone wears masks, they wipe everything down. They even have a little thingy with sanitizer they slide the pens through before you sign something.

    Just hanging out at beach, may play golf one day but otherwise just chill.

    My problem is I usually wait too long to go anywhere so I'm completely stressed out and it takes me like 3 days to unwind. I manage to relax one day and then grip for the next 3 days about coming home... lol
