After our fantastic trip to Cuba, we are back in Cancun. Jenée is doing her best to relax, with a private massage at Monica and Mike's home
Monica's daughter Giovanna joins us for lunch and will spend some welcome time with us over the next few days. Giovi is deciding between Stanford and Harvard graduate school. Smart señorita!
Mike and I are sitting at breakfast the next morning, on our way to La Playa - about an hour drive south of Cancun
We've been to quite a few of these outside venues - very nice. We will continue south on the Yucatan Peninsula.
A beautiful beach and it's normally open to the public. Today's surf is a bit rough, so it's closed.
We take time for a photo nonetheless. Check out my cool Cuban T-shirt. I borrowed the hat.
We are getting a closer look at the ruins. Tulum was constructed originally in 540 AD and achieved its height between the 12th and 14th centuries.
And they all have these fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea. Tulum was once a major port city on the Yucatan Peninsula.
Quite spectacular. Right after taking this photo we headed out. The weather change dramatically, as it is prone to do, and we walked through a deluge! My cool Cuban shirt changed colors - adios to that. We are heading to the waterfront area of La Playa.
We visit a beach front hotel in La Playa and Monica does her best diva pose for the camera
The next day, we hop in Mike's boat and head east two miles from Cancun to Isla Mujeres. We drop anchor at this beach - that's Mike setting the stern anchor in the distance.
Another view out to the dock from the condo. What a vacation! I'd recommend this to anyone. Mike and Monica are the best hosts ever! Tomorrow it's back yo US of A.
