Although we weren’t the first people to chart the Mexican toen of Costa Maya, we made a few discoveries of our own. We spent a nice, relaxing day scoring the perfectΒ spot on the beach in the neighbouring settlement of Majahual, finding the greatest place for lunch, and hunting for the best bargains in the little tourist village by the port.

So there you go. Hopefully I’ve proved that even a relaxing day on the beach can comprise of a string of discoveries and mini adventures. Exploring a new place (and in this case, a new country!) is always an exciting experience for me – the overall atmosphere, the colours, the smells, the people, the animals, the food and the emotions the place evokes all stay with me long after I’ve left.
