the next morning we woke with huge ambition to check out the local cenotes *water caves* as well as make our way to tulum.

getting to the cenotes was easy enough, a short collectivo ride took us into cool caves with fresh water good enought for swimming. So we thought until samson discovered mr dirty having a bath behind a few stalecmites.

getting to tulum wasnt a problem, but once we arrived we realised that we had truely arrived in mexicans yucatan region /the very same region that houses cancun and the likes. The first couple of places were asking for 210peso *20usd* for a double bed in a DORM, or 275 pesos *27usd* for a private cabana with mosquitos. Ridiculosly expensive, no thankyou. We opted instead to catch an expensive taxi *expensive after bargaining* to the beachside and found a 220 peso on the beach cabana. expensive but much much better.

After that stressful ordeal we sat back, had a seafood dinner and listened to the waves crash as we fell asleep safely in our mosquito net.
