The view from our window
The weather was PERFECT (80 deg and Sunny) we basically lived in our swimsuits the entire time we were at the resort
Beautiful aqua blue water and soft white sand
For the "Honeymooners"
We only drank bottled water and the water from the restaurants,
didn't want to spend all our time in El Bano
One of the restaurants at the resort was fancy "formal" place,
they served delicious French cuisine
The resort was all-inclusive so everything was free (food, drink AND alcohol)
Our waiter felt bad I only ordered water so he brought me a drink, we told him we didn't drink alcohol (we said "no cerveza" a lot) he assured me that it was ok only muy poquito in it....
We did a tour through an LDS tour group, our tour guide Carlos was AWESOME. He had a secular knowledge about the Mayan history and culture and a strong testimony and knowlege about The Book of Mormon. We learned so much
Mayan Ruins at Coba
about 250 AD which places it around the time of 4th Nephi
The city was really big, we rode bikes through the jungle to each site about 8 km round trip
The temple at Coba is the largest pyramid in Mexico
You can climb to the top (at your own risk) but I got vertigo just looking up it so I passed
After getting all hot and sticky in the jungle we got to go swimming in a Cenote
This was so SO COOL! It's an underground freshwater pool or sinkhole
The water felt so good. It was about 30 feet deep and it was so clear you could see all the way to the bottom. Some cenotes are so deep people scuba dive in them
Nick jumped off the platform (which was about 20 feet high)
We then went to more ancient Mayan ruins in Tulum.
A city built on some cliffs overlooking the ocean
Just laying poolside, reading a book or taking a siesta
All of the fresh fruit was so yummy, I lived off it
We did a couples massage (which was heaven!)
Nick is kinda tall for Mexico and his robe was a little short- hehe!
Took a taxi to downtown Cancun, where they had a lot of
shopping and restaurants
Ate at Margaritaville (food was ok, atmosphere was really fun)
