My number one Mexico must-see was Chichen Itza. I’m a history nut, so coming face to face with one of the seven wonders of the world (according to some lists, anyway) was something I didn’t want to miss out on!
I think I had culture shock when I arrived at Playa del Carmen. As one of Mexico’s biggest tourist resorts, it was way cleaner and more American looking than anywhere I’d been in the past few weeks. I had total mixed emotions – it was kind of exciting to be somewhere touristy, but also sad to leave Belize and Guatemala behind!
