Some of you might think I am always on holiday *removes sand from in between toes*
But we haven't been on what I would call a real holiday for quite some time, the real definition of a holiday, you know relaxing, sleeping in, exploring, eating and drinking.
Five years ago we spent a memorable holiday in Cabo
at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico. On Sunday we are going to the opposite coast and Riviera Maya, a kind of made up name for the coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula.
It is a short flight down to Cancun, Mexico's equivalent of Torremolinos from Miami then less than an hour's drive to where we are staying just north of Playa Del Carmen at Mayakoba
A Chicago Addick
family holiday wouldn't be complete without some exploration (now with pram) and two and half hours away are the most famous of all Mayan sites at Chichen Itza
. Much closer is Tulum
, where Mayan ruins perch atop cliffs overlooking the ocean. Playa Del Carmen
is a hip looking place although is swarming like Bermuda, with American cruise-line tourists.
We leave Sunday morning and return on Saturday and I'm very much looking forward to reacquainting myself with Mexico's tequila charms.
