In June I left Tulum stopping 3 nights in Playa del Carmen then diverting straight North for Formula 1 and to visit a few friends and the coolest city in Canada before settling back in Calgary.
Good bye Tulum...Alma, Gaby, Felipe, Herme, David, Isa, Lupee, Nayade, Carmen, Christopher, Cinthia, Faby, Yunue and Sonia.
|Thanks Gaby and Alma!|
|ah...did I forget my pant legs?|
Playa del Carmen
Airbnb about as good as it gets...

Deck 5 on the beach is a must do with roof top pool and bar. They require a minimum consumption of 500 pesos ($28 usd) unless you convince them you are just there for a second (or 3 hours haha).
Nice tour of the roof top bar.
|Lots going on in this photo|

You're gonna pay to use the bathroom whether you buy a ticket or not.

Not happy...lost my Mexico entry payment receipt (just like I did in 2011!). I guess I'll never remember this damn thing and worst of all I had to exchange usd to get pesos to pay it...and of course at the airport the rate was horrific! (15 to 1 usd which normally was 19 to 1).
|Mexico took it all!|

Day 4 - This is what it's all about, 4 days of party to watch a 1.5 hour race. A good day out, but why didn't we bring beer and food with us? Oh yeah we were a little late haha. The only Canadian in the race Lance Stroll crashed on the first lap with NZ hopeful Hartley and I shit you not people started leaving the stands. No one was hurt, but there went my two choices to win (although they never had a chance). Sebastian Vettel (German racing for Ferrari) never gave up the lead ahead of a Fin driver Bottas and Louis Hamilton finished 5th. Great weather, but if I was to do it again I would bring food/beer and get tickets on the hairpin. Of course the tickets we had were an upgrade from my general admission so thanks JP for that! Until next time!
Lined up forever to get in to the Race.
|Perfect, take your non walking kids to the races|
