Adios Mexico!

MEXICO | Friday, 19 February 2010 | Views [349]

Well we werent in Mexico for a huge amount of time, but we can always come back, we are keen as beans to get to Guatemala which we both feel is calling us.. and because we need to get to the spanish school before we embarrass ourselves anymore! So the first full day exploring was set back for Loz coz she got a bad stomach relapse and had to shit and sleep for the morning. All good though, in the afternoon we jumped on some bikes and explored the town - in a massive search for the extremely hard to find supermarket, especially with conflicting directions which is the standard for Mexico seemingly... then to the beautiful white sand, turquoise water, straw hut dotted beaches for the afternoon. Playing tourist was fun, we went to whats called The Grande Cenote which is a huge whole created by tree roots basically eating the ground, then the forest floor collapsing, exposing amazing azure blue waterways running under-ground. We swam around with the wee fishies in and out of the caves underground it was gorgeous. Popped into some old Mayan Ruins but so did a million other tourists and the heat made us a bit delerious so we beelined for the beach again. Strolling along up the coast was amazing.. from collapsing straw and tin huts to Mexican cabanas with taste and everything in between.. locals singing ´¨Hola!¨¨ every 2 seconds, with big smiles it was very welcoming. We couldnt leave without stopping at a local stand to lap up a cold coconut (Loz´s) first time yay and met some lovely old locals who took a shine to us and offered to take us on an expedition on their boat the next day which we agreed to... we turned up to the hotel they owned which by the way wasnt like your usual hotel, beautiful wooden buildings surrounded by palm trees and hammocks right on the white sand beach. But they must have partied too hard the night before coz they didnt show so we decided we would move on. We are now in a big smelly city called Chetumal which is an in-between stop on our way to Guatemala in the morning. We wandered the streets tonight looking for a typical local mexican feed which we did find, after sketching out about our safety in these crazy streets, being very obviously tourists upon night fall. All good though, we forgot our phrasebook so closed our eyes and pointed to things on the menu which turned out Primo and we are satisfied. Guatemala here we come! whoop whoop
