... over turned and we ended up have the most relaxing week ever.
The highlight however had to be swimming with the Whalesharks (thank you ESA). This is still to this date the most amazing thing I have done on this trip (and we are in Bolivia now).

The ball courts also seem different from Chichen-Itza -- more narrow, with sloping sides and larger rings.
