I’ve been thinking for a while about writing this article about my trip to Mexico, but it hasn’t been that easy. Because honestly, how do I write in one page how amazing this place actually is? I don’t know if it’s its nature, its great vibe, its great people or the combination of these tree elements, but I do know that once you go there, you do not want to leave.
First of all, Mexico is not the kind of instagram-popular, impossible-to-reach kind of destination. Booking a flight to Cancún is not that expensive, in particular if you’re planning your trip in the low season. Second of all, the Yucatán Peninsula offers several attractive spots to visit, all pretty close to one another.
When I first arrived, it wasn’t my plan at all to travel alone. I was supposed to go with a friend of mine, but she canceled. I had planned to stay in Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, but ended up staying the whole trip in a hostel in Playa del Carmen, which turned out to be great since everything I wanted to visit was within a decent distance.
As I already mentioned, Mexico has a really chill vibe, and you can definitely feel it at Playa Del Carmen, this is also one of the reasons why I stayed here during my trip. There is always something going on and it’s the perfect place to meet new people for those who are traveling alone like me!
I’ll be posting about Akumal, Tulum, Xcacel and other spots in the area of Cancún so make sure you don’t miss it by following me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/thewildplacesblog) or Instagram (www.instagram.com/thewild_places)
