Day with Altournative Offtrack Adventures!
MORNING: Visited an authentic Mayan ranch (Rancho San Felipe) located in the heart of the surrounding sub-tropical rainforest to enter into the amazing Sac-Actun cenote system, the world longest underground river, explored throughout 95 miles. We snorkeled in the Nohoch Nah Chiich cavern, …
The world really is a small place. Arriving in Belize Andrea and I got talking to siblings from North Carolina who it turned out I had met, very briefly, at a bus station in Nicaragua while travelling with Roman and Madeline!
With a flight out of Cancun on the same day as me, it seemed only right to join forces and head into Mexico …

Michelle’s face. She stops midswim into a vertical position, and I was killing
myself with laughter. The look of horror on her face was priceless, as she
backpedalled frantically with her arms waving about to avoid the brown string
being left behind by this beautiful fish. So funny! That night we joined some
friends to give Michelle her first taste of a Michelada. She liked it, but 1

... Maybe it's all over in just three days. Well, we certainly won't forget it for a while! We're still laughing about it on the night we have our 'Clair de Lune' romantic dinner on the beach by candlelight, straight after we've returned from Cozumel.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Located only two or three blocks from the beach, and only one block from the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenue!

No complaints about the accommodations - the inner courtyard has a swimming pool and foliage. I strongly suggest getting a room that faces the courtyard (instead of the street) in order to avoid street noise.
