So many groups snorkeling, diving, on boat trips, fishing, you name it, or rather trying to. Drove in to Pueblo Akumal.
It's a old Mexican town with some new development that resembled colonies.
Next stop -Puerto Aventuras. Another beach stopfor tourists, but underdeveloped poor town on the other side of 307. Poverty was startling.
Back in the car heading north. Missed the exit to Plyacar. Damn! Had to drive back a long way for the next 'Returno' ah! There was no road marked! Eventually with the help of the security we found our way to Iberostar, checked in, lunch and time to return in the car in down-town Playa Del Carmen before 6pm. Headed to PDC with a bad map in hand and no ability to converse in Spanish. It's the unknown that keeps the blood pumping!
Headed down 10th Avenue to Calle 28. Lol, American Car Rental couldn't have been in a better place than this! Between 10th and 5th with NO parking.
Now this is the area where human hoards let out by cruise ships. So many people all over. So touristy, expensive and commercial. One this that's worth seeing is Mayan pole flyers perform at the Parques Fundadores along 5th. I think there is a performance every hour in the evening. The music is different and nice too. Remember to tip them well.
Walked down 5th all the way. There were entertainment Sunset Boulevard-style from Micheal Jackson to photo-ops with baby tigers to fish pedicures. Took a taxi 90 pesos back to the hotel, shower,
nice, long relaxing dinner and zzzz....
