It's about a 20 minute long boat ride which passes quite quickly with the wind in our hair which is reviving and makes sure we are all wide awake by the time we arrive.

... the waterfalls of Misol-Ha and Aqua Azul and finally on to San Cristobal. An efficient use of time and a very scenic route. Being my first day in Mexico, this was also the start of my tequila challenge: to sample a different tequila for every day I'm in Mexico. As I plan to be in Mexico for more than a month, this should mean I get to try a significant portion of what's on offer. For the first shot of my challenge I was joined by my Dutch roomie and ...
