Mexico had so much I wasn’t expecting. Whale watching, zip lining. This was one of our best holidays. Booze and cigs were cheap, food was really good, I’m ready to go again, 9/10

Been traveling to PVR several times a year for the last 25 years. It never gets old and always has some new restaurants to explore.
