Bussed to Santiago to see the Cola de Caballo (Horsetail) waterfalls and then took a bus to Matehuala and a taxi to Real de Catorce
Then to Villahermosa to see Parque de la Venta with Mayan and Olmecan artefacts and Comalcalco ruins. Took a bus to Tuxtla Gutiérrez to visit the El Sumidero canyon on a boat. Wento to San Christobal de las Casas to see the caves and then took a bus to Palenque. Saw the ruins and some lovely waterfalls at Misol-Ha and Agua Azul. Then took an overnight bus to Merida. Arrived early morning in Merida and went to Chichén Itza ruins and then the Grutas de Balankanché caves. Went via Valladolid on the way to Playa del Carmen for some swimming in an underground cenote (well).
Did 2 dives off Cozumel on the Palancar and San Francisco reefs - very beautiful coral and fishlife. Then headed to Tulum and did another 2 dives the following day in the Dos Ojos caves - very cool when you are diving with a ceiling, but unnerving as I had a leaking O-ring on 1 tank... Took another bus to Chetumal and headed for the Belizian border.
