Next Island, still in touristic overdrive.
Best diving/snorkeling in Mexico they say.
Planning on doing some snorkeling, diving and moving on, there are too many people here!!!

Simonīs pet hate of Mexico - people throwing nappies in the sea, and specifically next to where he is swimming. Bad, bad splashes they are!

We hired mopeds and cruised around the islands today, it was really fun and the first time we`d hired bikes on this trip. The coast is amazing, either calm white beaches or wild blue surf. I saw more turtle nests than anywhere else in my life combined, unfortunately Mexico isnm`t quite onto the protection of these, and we saw children playing in one nest, and another nesting beach was being used by a company for 4 wheel motor bikes, which is pretty sad. I`d love to sneak down there and watch them laying... tonight perhaps...

Also checked out some Mayan ruins, they were quite good actually, not so old though, I think a lot of them in this region were built at the end of the Mayan empire. Better than the ruins though, was a massive green and black Iguana, apparently they change colour according to their surroundings - so cool!

We also lashed out and bought some snorkeling gear, so expecting to be entertained by these amazing oceans for the next 4 weeks, yay.

Although slightly concerned about reports of a hurricane headed our way. Dean. The projected path exactly crosses our path in 4 days time when it is expected to reach categroy 4, yikes, and we were expecting to be in beach cabanas! Any advice at this time would be appreciated!
