We headed down to Cancun in January 2014. We wanted to combine just a fun time on the beach with exploring some of the fantastic archaeology sites on the Yucatan. This was the first time that Kati had visited Mexico and I haven't been to the Cancun area for probably 15 years. While there, we explored the ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba, where we were finally able to climb a pyramid. We went swimming in an underground cave that the Mayans found sacred, called a Cenote and we swam and had fun in the Caribbean. Though it was a short vacation, only 5 days in total, it was filled with fun and we had a great time. We look forward to returning to Mexico at some point to visit the areas that I used to live in, but for now, this was great. And just what we needed to start off the new year.
