Back on the east coast and at our next AirBnb which was also tiny but with spectacular views over the cenote. (Cenotes are natural deep-water wells / sinkholes).
There were kayaks for our use, so that was a new experience for me and the water was crystal clear.
It was also lovely to use the hammocks and swings.
Another smaller cenote a short walk away was nice to swim in.
One day we drove into the nearby town of Chetumal.
The grounds at the Museum of the City of Chetumal were open and free to wander in.
There’s something about the scene below that really appeals to me.
VW Beetles are everywhere in Mexico.
Our last stop before flying back to Florida was just outside Tulum, slightly south of Cancun. As we drove through Tulum we were dismayed to see it was packed with tourists, shops, bars, restaurants etc, with hardly anyone wearing a face mask. We were glad to be staying outside of the town and decided that we wouldn’t venture in.
This VW beetle was rather interesting!
On our final day we found a beautiful and very quiet beach. The sea was too cold for swimming but it was really nice to sit in the shade of some palm trees, even though we had to position ourselves carefully as there were coconuts directly overhead!
We treated ourselves to a meal at a beautiful restaurant on our last night.
That concludes my Mexican adventure. Another country ticked off the list, and it was great to get away from the UK weather in January.
Despite seeing many signs for panthers on the roads, we never did see any 🙁
