£94 return 1st June - 8th June, Sat to Sat.

We booked our apartment on airbnb at 30 quid a night (15 each), there wasnt many other options if I'm honest but worth looking at. Staying between Playa den Bossa and Ibiza town.

Not sure what London flights are saying though?

Amsterdam

Best Indonesian > Toko Bersama. Make sure to get the aubergine dish as one of your choices.

Best Surinamese > Ram's Roti 

Best Thai > Bird Snackbar (if its full, go to the restaurant across the street)

Best Pizza > La Perla, or Pazzi

Best Burger > Rotisserie (vegetarian option is pretty decent as well)

Best Coffee > Sweet Cup, or White Label

Good wine > Glou glou or DiVino

Good Hummus > Mana Mana or Sir Hummus

Other good vegetarian > Sir Hummus Kitchen (aubergine/falafel wraps), Mooshka (various dishes including really good veg burgers, run by an Ethiopian couple)

Other various > Foodware (various meals), Rainarai (Algerian food), Foodhallen (hipster food court), Razmataz (good gin bar), The Hoxton (decent hotel lounge for a coffee/drink

maybe the Amsterdam thread has more https://www.vip2.co.uk/forum/topic/13215-the-amsterdam-thread

 

The Indonesian and Surinamese will be the only things you probably can't get easily in London (compared to the others) so I'd recommend trying one of the two while you're here.

There are plenty of things to do in Yucatan region.

The cenotes, both open and closed, are sick! Lots of Mayan ruins there, but you can only climb one pyramid due to the government getting upset about damage. The beaches, We'll in playa del Carmen, are sick! But there are so much things to do on the beaches. Raving, I didn't do raving, no time for that there and too many septic tanks.
