    Hola! (Hopefully i am not intruding in a part of the forum where i should not be?)

    I am from Denmark and "stuck" :jkam in Playa del carmen for a month. Wife is looking after a group of young Danes and we have brought our two kids, so no big two wheeled adventure for me, even though i feel the urge.
    Never been to Mexico before, and hopefully i could meet some likeminded people, I'm not that much into the normal tourist/shopping/tour cirkus....
    I speak zero spanish (well,i can order two large beers :1drink ) but thats almost it.
    Feel free to give advice also - we are planning on renting a car, so if you know about any hidden secrets on the Yucatan peninsula, your contribution is mostly welcome.
    Regards, Martin

    Heya Martin, we are in Playa till probably Thursday as Ellen has to get a tooth job done, meet up for a drink, chat whatever would be cool, ping us back at twomotokiwis@gmail.com

    We are just back from Cuba so I am doing RR's, be nice to get out for a break, we are just out of town and with our bike easy to get anywhere.

    Cheers Andi

    Aldea thai-luxury hotel?! Oh-la-la :nod

    I have offered the Kiwis some food this evening, we could most certainly try to make a gettogether one of the following days. How long are you here for, Mr. Animo?

    (I knew this would lead to something the second i decided to mention "beer" in the thread title :beer )

    We are cooking in for our hostess tonight but are good to go for a meet up tomorrow.

    Animo we did try and find toady you but couldn't, ping us directions or a G map view.

    Martin we snuck in just as the very heavy rain hit with thunder and lightening lighting the place up ... quite spectacular.

    One lucky hostess, you two can come live at my house anytime :D
    Thought of you when the rain started pouring - these roads must get so slippery with the dust and the oil-leaking cars. Glad your timing was right.
    But, as papa said: "Riding in the rain is better than not riding"
