Much like combat or high school our drive to Playa del Carmen consisted of endless hours of boredom punctuated by moments of extreme terror. It was tough to capture a lot of the exciting parts because often the driving actually took both of us concentrating on the road for us to figure out what to do. Sometimes we would drive for several hours without seeing anything interesting and suddenly we’d pass a herd of goats crossing the highway or the highest mountain in Mexico (Pico de Orziba) and not be able to get the camera ready quickly enough to document it. This video will give you an idea of how the drive to Playa del Carmen went but it does not do justice to it at all. Would you ever want to undertake a drive like this?
