The next morning and not feeling the jet lag that much we woke up to the 28C heat of Playa Del Carmen and walked to the pier to see the beach front. Along the way there were a number of 5 star hotels that we passed all with amazing sea views. After a quick breakfast of croissants we found our Costa Rican group tour guide at the hotel and she gave us a briefing of the 3 week trip that we would be ...
... off because at this point we were both dripping sweat from the heat. It was very sexy haha. After the zip lining we had lunch before we set off to snorkel with the wild green sea turtles. Lunch was very good. They had a bunch of different foods. We had Mexican tortillas, rice, mashed potatoes, pasta, salad bar and fresh made tortilla chips. We both had a glass of water to rehydrate ourselves. I was still thirsty after lunch and our guide brought me a drink called jimaca. ...

The sea looks murky right now, but that is due to the waves causing the sea bed to come up. Kyle, Jodi and Lori wanted to try kayaking. We went ...
... and not long after that we were ready to get in the water. The boat had a glass bottom so we could already see the reef under the boat and some fish swimming around. There were a few other boats around with other snorkeling groups. Once the guide had got in and checked the currant he gave us the signal to get in. As soon as I got in and put my head under for a look there was tropical fish around us everywhere and they were not scared of us like I thought ...
