Up at about 6:30 this morning to get our day bags ready and head to breakfast just after 7. We went to a place recommended by Rafael called Pops and we had bacon omelettes, mine with pancakes and Dylan's with corn tortillas. Very nice and filling! After breakfast I went back to the hotel to clean my teeth then we went to the supermarket for snacks then back to Mayawalk tours office for 8:10. Today we would be doing the cave of Actun Tunichil Muknal, a living museum of ...

... WD40 (the one kernel of useful input we took from our freaky foreigner, tossing the rest). There was yoga on a hotel patio at sunset, walks around the perimeter beaches, and one bike ride to the quieter far end of the island (about 3 km away) where we narrowly missed being hit by a small plane landing on the short airstrip (our FF forgot to mention this hazard).
