    ... as we drove into the jungle and the 3 major jungle cats around. The jaguar being the biggest but it was nocturnal. He said for every 25 sq km there was a jaguar. He started explaining the cenotes and how they were the only freshwater source in Mexico. They have 25,000 cenotes in just the Yucatán itself and about 7000 are connected by underwater rivers.

    We arrived at Aventuras Mayas and were told that we would be swimming in the cenote cavern first. We got off the ...

    The adventures of getting to Mexico

    A travel blog entry by charlotterowley on Apr 10, 2014

    ... beach! We arrived in Playa del Carmen after an hour. It was a fairly busy town - and we were stopped by a red light at every single junction! Luckily, the bus station was small and easy to navigate! I bought a ticket (only MX38 this time - £1.75) for the next bus to Tulum - leaving in 15mins! Or so the timetable went.

We ended up going to the buffet and meeting up with them ...

    Day 85 - Swimming with whale sharks

    A travel blog entry by jayandbob on Sep 07, 2013

    ... daunting but its something we both wanted to do so we weren't going to let the fear get in the way. We had to drive back to Cancun to get on the boats, along the way we picked up a few more people from various resorts and hotels, we pretty much had a full van by the time we got there. Once we arrived at the place with the boats there was heaps more people, they have 10 boats with 10 people each doing the swim. We got assigned to a boat, had a very light ...
