    A-MA-ZING. huge hotel (some members of my family even thought it was too big, but seriously, how could it be too big?!), nice & big buffet, beautiful beach, my favorite part was definitely the 'Plaza Mexicana' on the resort itself, I ended almost every single one of my days wandering around the shops again & again. Absolutely loved my stay!

    The weather is still windy, but a little better than before. Hopefully I will be able to go to sea tomorrow.
    This morning we went to stretching exercises and then went to see the free dolphin show. The dolphinarium is in a 5-minute walk from our building and on the way there we fed bananas to two iguanas (one big and one small). The dolphin …

    This morning I got picked up at 7:40 am to go back to Puerto Aventuras, but I was not sure if the harbour was open yet. There were 3 other guys in the van also going diving. When we got there, the news were good: we were going to dive in the sea! The instructors were excited as well, because they has very little work in the previous 4 days. We took …

    Grounded day 2, ear adventures

    A travel blog entry by pyres on Apr 21, 2015

    During the previous day I had some water trapped in my ear while diving, and I had no luck trying to remove it, only lost hearing in the left ear eventually. So after breakfast I dropped by a local doctor's office. He took a look and said that I have acute otitis of the outer ear (a.k.a. "swimmer's ear") and I need to see an ENT professional to …

    Grounded day 1

    A travel blog entry by pyres on Apr 20, 2015

    I messaged the dive centre in the evening of the previous day and this morning I got a response: they are expecting better weather on Wednesday, so they moved my 3 open water dives to Thursday. Which means I was grounded for 3 days.
    First thing after breakfast I went to the local dive shop with which I bought a package of 7 dives (I need …

    First open water dive

    The weather was still bad and harbour was still closed, so we went for a dive in a cenote instead of the open sea. Cenotes are deep sinkholes or pits, filled with fresh water. The one we went to was called Jardin del Eden (Garden of Eden). It is pretty much a water-filled hole, but it's extremely deep and connects to an underwater cave. The whole …
