Though there were some troubles on our way to Cancun, overall, it was great. We got up very early in the morning for the 7:30am flight. When we got at the airport, we found out our flight delayed over 4 hours (!) and there was no connecting flight. What the hell!? We were in shock and hopeless. After that, it turned out a lucky because we got a direct flight ticket for the replacing. That made us much easier to get there; it's only 6 hours flight!
At the hotel, the staff greeted, "welcome home!" and it made us feel like we really came back!! The room was perfect. It was much bigger than the last one, so we had enough space to put the room service table and had a nice dinner in the room.
We changed our plan for the first day and went to a cenote which was called Dos Ojos because my friend, Meche called me the night before the trip and told me NOT to miss it. It was a kind of adventure; get on a local bus to downtown, get in a van with someone else to Playa de Calmen, and then get in another van to the site.
Dos Ojos is not so famous as Grand Cenote but much bigger and clearer than that. Get on a small truck from the ticket center to the site that was 3 miles away. The road was so rough, we were like animals being shuffled up and down in the back cage.
Renting some equipment for snorkeling and getting into the cenote. Although I felt dying cold and couldn't breath at all in the water, the water was amazingly blue and clear to the bottom, and it's absolutely worth the try. Thanks to Meche. Unfortunately, the pics are not so good as the real sight, though.
The second day was a private trip to Expoler Park. There were some activities like zip lines, ATV, river swimming, and rafting in the huge cave.
I tried all, but rafting because I didn't have that energy at all. Zips were amazing!! I think it'd be *once-in-a-lifetime* experience flying like a bird in such a long course over the VAST natural forest, include water slider and cenote fall. I would never know how amazing it would have been if I didn't try it.
The third day, we were at the pool side and the beach relaxing, drinking and napping all day long. The Caribbean Sea was breath taking beautiful. Wave comes and goes back, here and there seamlessly, but sometime it's unpredictable. I thought I could manage myself on the wave, but it was wrong. It smacked my back and pulled my legs, got me completely lose control of my body in the middle of the SHLLOW water. When I managed to come up to the surface, I found my nose full of salty water, being not able to breath!!(@@;) Phewww!
For the dinner of the last day, we tried Mexican Cafe on the lobby floor and that was unexpectedly good. Tried variety of Mexican food, for example, CACTUS!サボテン食べたよ！ I don't have right word to describe it, but it had kind of weird texture, like *chewy & crunchy* (こりこり). The staff there was pretty friendly, they asked my preference of the drink and figured out what I wanted, and that was perfect. They also had a fun Mexican show and dance at the restaurant and it enhanced our mood on vacation in Mexico.
The last day, my stomach went down as it usually does. I didn't have any apatite and went bathroom again and again. It's just because I had been too greedy about food and got much more than I should have.
Thank you for reading such a long writing!
