Today’s port-of-call was Cozumel, Mexico. We’ve been here once before, but this time we took a ferry to Playa del Carmen on the Mexican mainland and then joined the tour to the Tulum Ruins. The ruins were the one thing I really wanted to see on this trip so I was stoked to be able to visit them with a tour guide who explained the history and of course the human sacrifices! 🤯 But seriously, although the ruins are not very large, the history was amazing and the setting, right on the cliff was stunning. It was well worth the trip!
After finishing our visit to the Tulum ruins, we had a few minutes to grab a bite to eat at the restaurant. The chips and salsa were so good (and spicy!), the ceviche was fresh and yummy, and the enchiladas verdes were delicious. I had the fish tacos which were pretty good, except the tortillas basically disintegrated when I tried to pick them up, so I had to eat them with a fork. But still enjoyable, especially washing it all down with an ice-cold Negra Modelo. 🍺🌮
Next, it was back to the shops near the dock in Playa del Carmen, and then we caught the second-to-last ferry to Cozumel and the ship.
By the way, on the bus to Tulum, I was able to snap a few photos which I thought I’d share:
The clouds this evening were the best of the trip, and I got plenty of good photos. We’re really fortunate to have some awesome weather so far!
I have to follow up yesterday’s sunburst post with another sky photo. The clouds the past couple of days have been great. When my Mom visited last week, we joked about how nice the clouds were, but she said that in Los Angeles, they don’t have many clouds. Come to think of it, I don’t have any particular memories of the clouds in Southern California (I was born and raised there), but I do remember when I traveled to Hawaii, the clouds there were simply amazing! And while Texas clouds aren’t quite as stunning as Hawaii’s, they can be beautiful, and the scale just seems bigger. I guess this is where I insert the comment about everything being bigger in Texas. 😆
