No idea if it's changed since then as it was 5+ years ago that we did it but that was one of the cool factors of going to a holiday place but still getting a heavy dose of Mexican culture.

    Again, can't speak for Cabo though, no idea if the beaches are nicer or what not, the PV beaches were nice but nothing special (Marietas being an exception as it's thoroughly unique) so again kind of gets back to what you'd be going for. The shopping was pretty good in PV as well but would imagine it's as good or better in Cabo if that is a factor, lot of big shopping malls with legit stuff and then the dodgy street vendors for the cheap stuff.
    Honestly Cabo sounds like my idea of hell, the Americans that had infested Positano for spring break a couple of years ago disgusted me no end

    PV it is

    None of the really good places around Chapel St are open late which is a shame.

    Here for work but got in last night pretty late. Leave tomorrow too so its a bit of a rush which is shit.

    My boss (who I am travelling with) got me upgraded to business class on the flight here tho. The cunt just asked if I could be upgraded (he was already booked business) and she said no worries. Had no idea that worked

    Tulum is great. The ruins are really cool and the beach at the ruins is one of the nicest I've been to (it's tiny though so expect it to be crowded).

    Make sure you hit up Chichen Itza for one of the day trips and get a decent tour guide, we hired a car and drove up there and then hired this little legend at the door which was significantly cheaper than the tours (the drive is really easy as well, just a couple of highways) but the tour on a coach would be easier. Make sure the Sacred Cenotes is included as that's worth the trip out as well. Perk of driving is you can go to the Cenotes before all the tour buses arrive and get it more to yourself. If you've got any interest in architecture, history, engineering or audio wizardry then Chichen Itza will have you frothing.

    There's a couple of other cool ruins if that's your thing but the Tulum ruins are unique as the only coastal ones and CI is the big daddy, some of the others are cool because you can climb them and shit like that.

    Awesome spot for diving if you're into that as well, not sure if you're too early for Whale Sharks but it's one of the cheaper regions to do that.

    Coco Bongo up in Cancun is a cool night also if you've never done one before.

    I survived doing it twice, did have to bribe a cop though but to be fair haggled him down to $10 and probably was speeding by 40kmh (I have no idea...)

    I'd actually think they're more likely to hit the tour buses than try and pick out one car with a foreign couple in it or whatever.
