Land of the Maya

Hola amigos! We have returned from our adventure to Mexico and the land of the Maya! It was a wonderful exploration around the Mexican Caribbean with a glimpse into the magic of the Mayan history. Let me start with some initial insight...

The colours are unforgettable, the azure, turquoise, purple, teals of the sparkling seas, the grey, whites, greens of the crumbling limestone ruins, the vivid oranges, reds, yellows, greens of the Mexican decorative, all beneath the bright royal blue skies. Hues etched in our memories. Scorching heat and fresh ocean breezes, paradise reef gardens and crystal clear views of tropical sea life. Meeting a green sea turtle eye-to-eye in his world. Being an eye-witness to a barracuda circling a twirl of fish in the emerald green depths.

Serenaded by a trio of musicians on our eleventh anniversary in an historical hacienda. Standing in awe of the history of an ancient civilisation. Indulging in the depths of tequila shrouded margheritas, guacamole and salsa. Imagining the era of pirates and treasure. Observing the reality of life dependent on tourism now. Wishing we had more time to explore the authentic Mexico. Returning brown, baked by the Caribbean sun, relaxed from island time and with many more memories we will treasure forever.
