we are currently planning a three week trip to Mexico in November 2013. We are a married couple (agre 28 and 32), we love the combination of getting to know the culture and also relaxing on a beach, we both speak a little Spanish (enough for little conversations), are both Open Water Divers (beginners) and love Mexican Food. We would like to see a bit of Mexico and its culture, but also want to go diving and have a bit of relaxation on the beaches in the Riviera Maya.
I would love to get some feedback on our itinerary:
Day 1 Arrival in Mexico City in the early evening
Day 2 Mexico City
Day 3 Mexico City
Day 4 Bus trip from Mexico city to Oaxaca
Day 5 Oaxaca
Day 6 Oaxaca
Day 8 Isla Mujeres
Day 9 Isla Mujeres
Day 10 Islja Mujeres to Chitzen Itza (rental car)
Day 11 Chitzen Itza
Day 12 Merida
Day 14 Drive from Merida to Playa del Carmen (rental car)
Day 15 Playa del Carmen
Day 16 Playa del Carmen / Diving Cozumel?
Day 18 Playa del Carmen / Diving?
Day 19 Playa del Carmen
Day 20 Playa del Carmen
Day 21 Flight back home to Germany from Cancun via Mexiko City
Any feedback is highly appreciated. Is there a "must see" on Yucatan which we missed? Is the time in Mexico City and Oaxaca enough?
We thought we better stay in Playa and then make a dive trip to Cozumel instead of sleeping on the island..
Thank you in advance for all your comments!
