Mexico - Mosquitos, Mohitos and Mayan Ruins
It took 21 hours to get to our hotel but worth it when we arrived. 11 days in a luxury hotel followed and a chance to unwind and reflect on the fact that we're on holiday for 10 months!!! (sorry if you're reading this on a Monday morning!). Days were spent lazing around the pool and eating at nice restaurants - total luxury before the backpacking began! The mosquitos made impressive work of both of us, particularly Debs who was a good contendor for the world's largest mosquito bite! We did visit Chichen Itza and Tulum - Mayan ruins in the area and Paddy got his PADI Open Water Diving Certificate (in 2 days) but very little else. We decided to move on before we got too comfortable and blew the budget in the first month so after 11 days it was onto Belize...
