We decided to go snorkeling for the first time ever despite the crazy weather & it was terrifying. Well when they say it's fine for beginners they lie & also I have a tiny head & my snorkel mask filled up with water when I was trying to swim..but after I almost drowned it was all good. We do look pretty snazzy in our wet suits though!
The most exciting (& expensive) part of our trip was the Xcaret park, it was totally worth every penny. My only regret is not signing up for more of the fun stuff that they offered. Like swimming with dolpins or snorkeling..guess we'll just have to go back!
If you know us.. we love animals. So probably the coolest part of the park other than it's basically a rainforest/beach/paradise is that there are really cool animals & sea creatures all over the park. Kevin & I kept joking that all the animals were obsessed with us because pretty much every animal was super close to us & was like staring us down. Especially the angry raccoon.

It started pouring rain so we decided to hit up the buffet which was AMAZING. Our resort had ..a lot of questionable food which really had me doubting Mexico in general..but our buffet restored my faith. The pineapple was to DIE for. They also had some bananas & cream with nuts..oh my gosh we had like 3 bowls full of them & Kevin made out with some chicken. (He's gonna kill me.)
We roamed the jungle, held some parrots, chased some butterflies, obviously took some santa pictures on the beach, Kevin took a nap on a hammock & we attempted to swim in an underground river (which, okay it seemed super cool but we chose to go in the one that was all caves so I was super claustrophobic the whole time, it was pitch black & so of course I smacked my head on the freaking rocky wall trying to swim in damn flippers. Then my cute husband trying to get me to finish the river offered to hold my waterproof phone so he put it in his pocket & it floated out.. FML. Then a scuba diver came & found it.. then end.)
|We're like Oh yay underground river! How fun! PSYCH!|
And did I mention the view was incredible? Breathtaking.
