Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum {travel}





After docking at port in Cozumel, we took a one hour ferry ride over to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. After meeting up with our tour guide, we boarded a bus to Tulum where we spent our afternoon touring ancient Mayan ruins (1000's of years old and absolutely worth the trip!).
















Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands {travel}




We literally went to hell and back on this trip. I wanted to send a postcard from the post office in the town of Hell, but I ran out of time and had to get back on the bus. Hell, a popular tourist stop in Grand Cayman, was named this because there are black limestone formations coming out of the ground which are pretty amazing.



And of course, it wouldn't be the Caribbean if it weren't for a stop at a local rum factory!




It was a windy day perfect for the waves creating blow holes several feet high!
