Traveling in Yukatan and Quintana Roo was easy, as the peninsula is very much beloved by tourists from all around the world. We generally felt safe everywhere, the people were friendly and we didn't have difficulties finding food suitable for our European stomaches.
Our Mexico trip in January 2022 lasted three weeks, we started and ended our trip in Cancun. The itinerary looked like this: Cancun - Playa del Carmen - Akumal - Tulum - Pisté (Chichén Itzá) - Merida - Progreso - Valladolid - Holbox - Puerto Morelos.
When we arrived in Sainte-Anne, Martinique, we noticed many boats standing in the bay. Back then we idly wondered, if the beaches were so nice in Sainte-Anne (yes, they are) that so many boats came to visit them.
