The resort provided a wonderful fireworks show we could watch from our balcony - festive start to 2011!
After breakfast we drove 10 minutes north to the little fishing village of Puerto Morelos where we hired local fishermen to take us snorkeling on the reef:
Anenome and Coral
Donkey Dung Sea Cucumber
Afterward we enjoyed live harp and guitar music (back right) in an outdoor cantina before heading back to the resort:
Here are some more shots from around the resort:
Agouti and friend
Proof I was there:
Another great seafood and fresh produce dinner (Mike must have been the hungriest):
Here's our last view of Quintana Roo for now:
And a "we're home at last" greeting from Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams - a lovely end to another beautiful trip to Latin America. Happy trails!
THIS BLOG WAS SET UP TO CHRONICLE OUR ADVENTURES IN MÉXICO & GUATEMALA IN 2010.
Mike and I explored the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula for 2 weeks of flyfishing (Mike), diving (Stacey), snorkeling, Maya ruins, a colonial city, cenotes, quite a few hammocks and lots of great food.
When Mike flew home I headed to San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas for 2 weeks of Spanish study with a small group in tow. We lived with host families and visited area sights including villages, museums, and ruins.
When the group flew home I bused to San Pedro La Laguna on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala for a week of planning for future growth of the Beca Project (link below) and meeting our sponsored kids and their families.
When our daughter Mariah and her husband Greg invited us to share a timeshare in Quintana Roo between Christmas and New Years, a new chapter to this blog was added. HAPPY TRAILS!
