Where I stayed
So todays day trip was to visit one of these cenotes and do some snorkle exploration. There were two parts to the one we visited. The first had a smaller opening, and colder water. This one was much more cave-like, with the formations mentioned above. John was brave and, after taking a deep breath, followed the guide through several under-water caves
The second part of the cenote was slightly warmer, as the entire roof had fallen in, leaving the pool exposed to the sunlight. In addition to a bit of snorkeling (more sun = more algae = more fresh water fish and turtles), we also took advantage of the opportunity to float on an innertube, in the middle of the jungle, soaking up the sunshine and doing absolutely nothing. Fabulous.
And when we were done with that? What else but to head back to the beach in Playa for one last bit of sun.
On an unrelated note, this will be our last update from Mexico. After 5 nights in Playa, it is, I suppose, time to move on with the rest of our journey. But I do think we´ve found our spot for our next beach vacation someday. Tomorrow, we´re going to make our way to Belize. Early morning bus to the border then... find another bus to Belize? Depending on time, we´ll either be in Belize City or perhaps on one of the Cayes by tomorrow night.
