MEXICO | Monday, 21 January 2008 | Views [662] | Comments [4]

ok about time i wrote something

well arrived cancun and enjoyed the first days a lot ,very mexican (we didnt venture anywhere near the big hotels) we stayed in cancun town and had to stay for 4 nights as we couldnt get flight to mexico city till monday(more later)

but cancaun downtown was great tacos ,loud ,dirty ,just the way i like it

1st night stayed at a dodgy hostel (porno playing on tv when we arrived) so the next 3nights founf a much cheaper place which we payed the 3 next nights,HOWEVER we didnt know about the 3 bars nearby who from 12 am till6am played load music directed into our room it was incredible!!

but no worries went out late to a mexican hippy bar drinking ltrs of beer wirh live music!cool

also went to tulum ruins south of cancun(2.5hrs) great ruins on the beach

saw my first stingray there and our first iguanas....

next mexico city (HUGE) and then a bus to (HORN COWS)cuerno vacas and finally ACAPULCO

ACAPULCO ;dirty load ,packed with cars,and shit and mex people

it was bloody great but beach dirty and water too so no swiming ,,,we watched the famoso cliff divers (wimps not)and here we learnt all about the mex food ,eating in poeple housees along the road side,went in the beatle taxis great..

next we went long bus ride to puerto escondido,,its a surf town ,,,very nice but too turistico ,,nice restraunts

met a nice german and canadian but also a new york guy who was unreal,very demanding to the waiters and also his food not right,,,he even asked for his salad to be cooked cause hes affraid of the tom tits,

weird bloke!

finally we are in MAZUNTE hippy beach placeand now staying hear for 6 days,,its very mex,,,chikens ,horses,fooking mossys ,im biten to shit

and today went to next beach to us which has a small lagoon behind it(up to the beach) full of crocs and igaunas ,,,lidia very scared (the crocs are right next to the boat and 2,3 mtrs long)

in the cenre there is an island with more crocs(behind chiken wire fences).when the guide wasnt looking we put our hand through the fence and stroked a 20 year old 2.5mtr croc......!!!!!!

aloso been on a boat to find whales(the guide said 100 per cent we see whales!!!! did we fook) anway saw wild sea turles huge ones swiming next to our boat and huge manta rays

and here we still are!

its very hot,its great ,currently in a cabin overlooking the beach for only 5 euro each a night!its great...

to sum it all up Thailandia but dirtier and very lazy but nice people

but they dont arse about owt(dog poo next to your table in the beach restraunts and the waiter walks roundit!!)

thailandia was cleaner and btter food but its greathere too,,,,sitting in a beach bar and people fishing infrount of you ,,,when they catch a big fish they bring it to your table and you can get it cooked up ,,lovely!

fresh ,chikens and pigs everywhere and dogs ,,,mex with the hats and big belts and boots,,,its the real deal ,,,just get out of the hotels in cancun !

1 last thing from cancun had a beer in hooters!!!ha ha

next to san crisabel de casa (12hrs away)
