We had our taxi driver take us to Akumal, Mexico which is supposed to be one of the best snorkeling locations on the Mayan Riviera. The water was a little cool and Josephine was reluctant to get in. After hearing that there were giant sea turtles swimming around, she braved the water temperatures and joined me as I was already swimming with the turtles.
After docking at the pier in Calica, Mexico, we hired a taxi and driver for the whole day. Tulum was our first stop. We roamed the ruins of the Mayan city which is right on the Carribean as you can see in some of the pictures. The main temple is on the edge of a cliff overlooking the water. We got there early in the morning so we had the chance to take many pictures with no one else in them. It's a peaceful and beautiful place when no one else is around. The only sounds were the birds and the waves crashing against the shoreline below. We saw alot of iguanas and they were really big!
