First tip: take as many biros and cheap notepads from poundland pens as you can. Almost like currency to the locals, especially the kids.

Sacred Crocodile pool is amazing

Tianji bird reserve is worth a few hours

Be prepared to see immense wealth and the worse poverty you've ever seen, side by side

During the day the place was really nice, beautiful even. Everywhere was really clean and the weather helped giving it a sun kissed look. Spent time in the park chilling out surrounded by groups of blondes, did a bit of shopping, walked along the river & the botanical gardens. At night the place seemed to multiply the amount of birds and the bars we went were cool but properly rich, absolutely dripping with minge though. Wouldn't do anymore than a couple of days as it's so small though.

Been to cancun three times, absolutely love it where are you staying? A few trips we did were Xcaret and the Mayan temples (chichenitza or something?) the only good thing about that place was the beach though, think it was voted the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world or something.

We went quad biking at least an hour into this dense jungle and had something to eat at a family's house which was nice, all booked through the hotel though (Moon palace)

Edit: SHIT just saw you're going on a lads holiday hahaah.. Señor Frogs and Coco Bongo Eye-wink

Looking to go in the summer with the lads. What's the night life like? Was also thinking about going down to the coast to Casablanca for a few days as well.

Yeah nightlife was decent. I would recommend it for 2-3 nights after that if you are not with locals then it may get a bit samey.
I mainly went out for dinner in the evenings then a couple of drinks but more than enough bars to keep yourself happy.

While we're talking about Sweden, who here has been to Stockholm?

How expensive are we talking?

Ibizavillas2000 if they still operate. We stayed in a 18 person one in 2008 San Rafael. Was less than £150 each for the week.

They filled the outdoor bar full with drinks for us getting there too. The manager came down and took us back and forward to the supermarket on the first day. Great service.

@velvet

Definitely worth a trip to Brac and Hvar. Ferry is really cheap. The hyped beach is zlatni rat in Bol which is nice, if a little difficult to get to.
