Yucatan Peninsula - Day 7 - Cenotes

Yucatan Peninsula — Day 7 — Cenotes

Woul­da, shoul­da, coul­da. Along with every­thing else, the Yucatan penin­su­la is also known for its cenotes, or sort of sink­hole caves, result­ing from the lime­stone geol­o­gy. There are too many to vis­it, but we had a hard time pick­ing even one to vis­it. We were dri­ving by them in the mid­dle of our trip and should...

Yucatan Peninsula — Day 6 — Isla Holbox

We were done ear­ly after our bird­ing tour in Rio Lagar­tos, and so we head­ed for our sec­ond relax­ing day on the beach on Isla Hol­box. It is a quick fer­ry ride from Chiquila to the island, and then we walked down the sand streets to the beach and found a hotel. This was our sec­ond small...

Yucatan Peninsula - Day 1 - Tulum

Yucatan Peninsula — Day 1 — Tulum

My guy and I spent a week in Quin­tana Roo and the Yucatan and suc­cess­ful­ly achieved my goal of not spend­ing a sin­gle minute in the city of Can­cun. The air­port is con­ve­nient­ly locat­ed well out­side the city. Instead, we did a won­der­ful tour which includ­ed a mix of beach­es, birds, and ruins. Being low-sea­son, we made no reser­va­tions except...
Scary amounts of work

Scary amounts of work

After vaca­tion there is always some blow­back, with about the same lev­el of scari­ness as the wilds of Cobá… No, real­ly, there is a lot of work to be done. Crazy how it just sneaks up on you. Now to go bare­foot through my dark, dark house. (shiv­ers)
