I jumped into the sea for a brief swim, but the rough water crashing against the rocks made it exhausting work. Across the road was a cenote swimming hole with cool crystal clear fresh water. I joined a few of the others for a much more relaxing swim. Or rather a relaxing float - there was not a lot of physical exertion required this time.
At lunch I tried a small piece of another traveller's order of fried crocodile
Later we stopped at the Bay of Pigs museum, and it was here, in the town square, that we could see preparations for a rally or celebration to be held later that evening. Probably smart to save such festivities for the cooler weather after the sun goes down.The museum was small with only a few photos and artifacts, but plenty of harsh words for the "Yankee Imperialist" invaders. It's places like this that make one wonder if the deep hatred and resentment between the two nations can ever be smoothed over.
