Flag of Mexico  , Yucatan Peninsula,
Tuesday, August 30, 2011

We hit the road on Tuesday morning.  Had a nice flight into Cancun, Mexico, then hopped on a bus to Playa del Carmen. 

Stayed in a very cute hotel in the heart of the city, a few blocks from the beach.


Played at the beach  
 
and took a day trip to the Tulum ruins about 45 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. 
 

We left Playa del Carmen headed for Belize.  We changed our route while we were on the bus becaue Orange Walk and Lamanai didn't sound so appealing after reading blogs about them.  Twelve hours on the road was a bit much.  The first 4 hour bus ride wasn't too bad because we had air conditioning and two movies.  The second bus ride from Chetumal to Belize City was rough.  It was a chicken bus, minus the chickens.  Hot, bumpy, music blasting the whole way and about 100 stops.  The first hour wasn't so bad, but by hour four and half, I was about to pull my hair out (that is, if I had any hair to pull).  We both decided what was cool 5, 10 years ago, isn't so cool at our age.  So we'll have to shorten our trips to about 4-5 hours of travelling in a day.  At least the ferry ride over to Caye Caulker was cool and quick. The videos and pictures tell it all (well a a lot anyway!)
