Last days in Mexico

After the relentless heat and unable to cool down in Merida for the last 3 days we decided to head back to the Caribbean coastline of Mexico. We’re 3 weeks into our travels now and have already realised that the coast is where we feel most comfortable in this weather. Finding the quiet beaches, lagoons and cenotes to cool down and relax with a book has been some of the highlights of our travels so far. So kver the next week we managed to hitchhike back to Cancun where we then jumped straight on the bus and started traveling south towards Belize. Calling in for a couple of days in playa del Carmen, Tulum and Bacalar.

Highlights of our week would be:

🌊 Our host in playa del Carmen and friends taking us to one of their family run restaurants to try local dishes.

🐢 Swimming with the turtles in Akumal bay. Although now a very touristy hot spot due to these animals being here regularly, still a great experience to see the turtles feeding and stingrays.

💦 The sleepy town of Bacalar, the most picturesque lagoon we had ever seen. Famous for the 7 shades of blue the water transforms throughout the day.

☄ The shear 90 meter deep, clear, blue waters of the Azul Cenote, so big it looked like a lake surrounded by woodland. Here we spent the day trying to teach Zuzia to dive. 😂

🕷 Finding an ugly tarantula under our bed on the last day in Mexico.

Then hitchhiking onwards into Belize which is where we are now, chilling on a hammock… but that’s what the next stop will be about.

Mexico treated us in a very friendly manner, the food was the delicious and we visited so many beautiful places. We will definitely be back but on the west side of the country next time!
