|Yep, I just had to. The beach and my feet are in the sand!|
|Sunrise and I believe those two seats were reserved for us.|
|Where we spent a good portion of our time...|
soaking up the sun and drinking at the pool bar.

We took 2 excursions. One, to swim with the dolphins - no pictures yet, but wow! what an experience! And two, we took a day trip to the Chichen Itza ruins. This is one of the 7 wonders of the world.
|The only circular building and it was designed to observe|
stars and their alignments and cycles.
|9 stories tall! And you clap your hands in front of a|
staircase and it echos back the sound of their
sacred bird. Surreal experience!
|Not sure if you've ever seen the cartoon movie from|
years ago, El Dorado, but they played this ball game.
I couldn't get over how huge the field was and
how high the "hoops" were.
|A natural underground well. The water is approx 120-130 feet deep |
and was freezing but we swam around for a bit.
We were on fire after Chichen Itza. It's 90-some steps down
to reach the water.
