Viajamos a México! (Snorkeling in Akumal - Yal-Ku)


On the final day of the trip, we were able to stop in Akumal for a few hours and snorkel at the Yal-Ku lagoon. The water was crystal clear and it was a great way to cap the vacation!












Viajamos a México! (Tulum Beaches)


Tulum's beaches are world class. I don't think I need to add a bunch of captions to this post... I'll just let the photos speak for themselves...

Viajamos a México! (Tulum and Coba Ruins)


The Yucatan Peninsula is full of Mayan ruins. We aren't huge history buffs, but still wanted to check out a few of the sites. During our time in Tulum we visited the two most convenient locations - Tulum and Coba.

The Tulum site is right on the beach - prime real estate!!! A quick bike ride from the town or hotel/beach zone.

The Coba ruins are 25 miles inland (easy drive) and located in the jungle. This site is barely even excavated.
