... It's a beautiful day and with some water I'm actually feeling alright. Then we get to the whale sharks (which are actually not sharks, just huge fish #factoftheday). We get our gear on, we'll be snorkeling in groups of 3 with the guide. I'm in the first group. We jump in almost on top of a huge one.

... to be avoided at all costs (except the all-American resorts of Cancun obviously). Did we encounter any dangers during our trip? Well... keep reading...
It wasn't hot when we landed, the humidity was much higher than in Europe though.
