To the Ferry via a Zip Line…

I forgot about our dinner with a peacock from last night – Jake decided it would be a good idea to invite a friend to dinner!  With a few chips and a little ingenuity we had a Peacock at our table for dinner…

We hit the road around 7:30 with Jake behind the wheel driving a standard for the first time and I thought the BASB were a problem. The goal was to head back the way we came to catch the 3:00 Ferry and to meet the girls in Cozumel for dinner.  First stop was breakfast, which was next to a BASB.    
As we slowed down we saw a small store along side the road, next door well maybe an alley way was a women selling all kinds of breads – we got one of each for go with our drinks from next door, another successful breakfast for two for under 3 US Dollars!  I picked up a little watermelon along the way and we were off for the 3 – 4 hour drive.  Our drive was broken up with an occasional yell of BASB and a rainstorm the even got me so slow down.  About 3 hours into the drive we found this great Cenote that was about 5 miles down a dirt road that would make the Hopkins Point road look like the Mass Pike. Well it was worth the drive and the price – not cheap, but we had the place to ourselves with a guide. We entered a hole in the ground, down a set of ladders into the underground spring.  Armed with light we jumped in and swam from cavern to cavern. It was absolutely incredible!  This place was only discovered 10 years ago and open to the public only 4 years ago – a must see and the road in a small rental car was more fun then off roading in a 4X4!

A few miles up the road was a sign for Zip Lining:  After another dirt road and we were in the middle of the woods on top of a tree about to zip through the woods.  Due to the rain that has stopped we almost had the place to ourselves, the pictures tell the story:

Dropped off the rental car not quite in the same condition but close enough for Mexico. A drink at Sr. Frogs before the choppy Ferry ride to Cozumel to vacation…

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
