The cost of the activities was our biggest cost with scuba diving pushing up the final figure here. A 2-tank day of diving costs approximately $100USD.

Fuel was our second biggest cost due to the extensive distances we covered. The cost of 1L of diesel in Mexico is $12.30MXN pesos (approximately £0.60GBP or $96USD).

Eating out is a cost we could have saved in Mexico. It took us a couple of weeks at the beginning of the trip to get into the routine of cooking in the van and taking lunch out with us. 

Toll roads is something we had not budgeted for and were not expecting. There are free roads to the same location but the cost versus the hours it would take extra make it worth paying the toll.  The toll roads were a lot better maintained too.
