The last pool had a little cave under the ledge, so we swam under the ledge and were able to pop our heads up into the cave, with just enough room to keep our heads above water. At the end of the day, we were so pumped up, tired, sore and in awe of what we had experienced. If the tour guide ...
... about the delicious substance we’ve both started drinking a fair bit of – it’s just so good here! We’ve also been to a Mayan Instrument Museum, a few art galleries, and even the opening of a photography exhibition that the talented son of the family we live with has on display this month.
We tried a free salsa lesson and then that night went out with a friend to check out a live band and try out our new moves. We were ...
