|Breakfast||Huevos Tarzan||La 88||$0.00||La 88 in Playa del Carmen (near where we stayed) had a breakfast item called "Huevos Tarzan", which they say is their "hangover remedy" breakfast. I wasn't hung over, but I couldn't resist the Huevos Tarzan, which is just scrambled eggs with peppers in it. It was bitey, but not torturous. Loved it.|
|Bed and Breakfast||Clean & Cozy Apartment in an Amazing Location||AirBnB||Cozumel||$125.00||Miguel's place is awesome, and so is he. The place is fairly central - within easy walking distance of centro. It is clean and basic, and is a great home base with strong water pressure in the shower, a good kitchenette and strong wifi. Miguel makes it very easy to find the place (pay attention to the cross streets) and to check in. He provides potable water and makes sure you have everything you need. There's a convenience store and grocery store within easy walking distance. Loved everything about our stay there. Great for independent and adventurous travelers!|
|I'm disappointed to report that seasick seems to be my go-to feeling when traveling by boat now. Curse you, Friendship Rose!|
|Almost immediately upon arrival at Cozumel, Brent and I started feeling more comfortable than we were in Playa del Carmen. That place is much too party-beach and too full of barking vendors for us to relax and enjoy. San Miguel (Cozumel) reminds us both a little of Port Elizabeth (Bequia), and so far we really like it. We found Brent a dive for tomorrow and I am formulating a plan to rent bikes to ride out to San Gervasio the next day.|
