First Aired: February 2005
Cancun is a luxurious, tropical, gay-friendly destination which boasts the perfect mix of tourist attractions and local Mexican culture. Jose Luis Soto, Cancun’s tourism expert, introduces Charlie to the hottest beach: Playa del Carmen.
After a sun-filled day, Charlie visits Leda Gamboa Rojas’ El Rincón del Vino where he enjoys some of the restaurant’s 180 labels of wine from both local and international vineyards. The next day it’s time for some serious r&r at the Maya Talum Resort and Spa where Charlie gets a mud massage, a special Mayan Treatment. Then he walks a tight-rope, jumps off the cliff of courage and swims with the dolphins at Xel-Ha an ecological water theme park.
Afterwards, it’s time for a shot of tequila with Patrick and Paco of the Hotel Casazul, followed by a lap dance at Club Deseos, some shopping in Playa del Carmen and some Mayan cuisine at Yaxche. We cap things off with some more dancing at Glow.
