More Mexican adventuresPosted: January 22, 2012
Before we had to say good bye to Mexico completely, we had the chance to visit a few more hot spots on the Yucatan peninsula. On our journey back to Cancun, we stopped by Chichen-Itza. I learned it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
It was an extremely beautiful day, the sun was shining over Chichen-Itza. We had a great tour guide that shared his knowledge with us as we walked around the site that was built over 1,500 years ago. After the tour of the main pyramid, ball court, and a few other buildings, we had time to explore on our own. I walked down to a cenote, which is a deep fresh water pool. On our way back, there were many vendors. I purchased a few skulls and a beautiful Mayan blouse. They are great keepsakes of my trip to the Yucatan.
After our time a Chichen-Itza, we headed back to Cancun. We had some time to go to the beach and play in the surf. We had a great time writing Elon in the sand many times over. After our beach time, we had a fabulous seafood dinner on the water in honor of last night and Kate’s birthday! I had a lovely lobster bisque and shrimp salad. Yum!
On our last morning in Mexico, we went to the beach to see the sunrise. It was early, but well worth it. The view was stunning. I can’t wait to see my next Mexican sunrise!
