Loved, loved the Mision de Fray Diego. It's located about 1 1/2 blocks from the main square in Merida. Our room was incredible, we were in one of the "special" rooms. It really is as pretty as all the pictures. Once you get into the courtyard you would never know you are in the heart of a bustling city. The food in the restaurant was very good. We wound up eating breakfast & dinner there everyday since it was good, quiet, not too expensive, and so beautiful. The staff was helpful. The only reason I am not giving this hotel 5 stars is that our bedspread was a bit tattered. It didn't bother me, but it's an easy fix, so it should be fixed.

... Rodrigo drove back to the airport to get the car we had arranged for rent. They arrived back at the hotel 2 hours later and without a car. Guess they were getting the runaround and it was going to cost twice as much as we had been quoted. They spoke to other car rental places who each offered less, but still not what we had planned on. We decided we'd rent in Progreso where the condo is and travel with Rodrigo ...
... locals who looked at us like we were crazy tourists. Oh, and some cows, of course.
Swimming in cenotes is possibly the coolest thing I've seen on this trip so far. And that's saying a lot considering some of the things I've done. The first cenote was a large aqua blue swimming hole at the bottom of a cave, which looked small from the outside but expanded into a huge area from the inside. We had the place entirely to ourselves for most of the time ...
... in the heart of the jungle.
The first day i arrived we had a twenty minute boat trip out onto open reef and got to dive and explore this underwater wonderland. It was a great experience for everyone who was involved and you could tell by the enthusiasm and excitement that people had throughout the entire day. It was a great thing to do because you work in teams of six with 1 guide and get to explore certain ...
... were 2 for the price of one so I had 2 of course, yummy. Thursday 13th March we had grand plans to go to some ruins today but I had a sore throat and dry cough ( was it the extreme aircon on the bus the other day?) and was chilled overnight despite it being very warm so may have had a bit of a temp (no I don't check it cos I hope to ignore it and recover ). I also needed to get some printing done in readiness for the trip to Cuba and getting a visa. This meant I had to ...
... there is a self serve laundry and drink and snack machines and the best part it is under our budget. We unpacked and took a walk around the city, straight away we fell in love with it, not only the nice look of the place but the general vibe and the friendly people. Usually when we arrive in a new city it takes a day to adjust and get used to it, sometime you really get to like the city you are in then you leave and the first day in a new place you feel like ...
