Day 1730 – 1732: Cancun and Isla Mujeres

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Jul - 12 - 2015

I was spending a day in Cancun updating the blog and preparing the next part of the adventure in the US – including going to a bike store to pick up a box for the flight.

The next morning I woke up to what would be my last day in latin America – and I would be going out with a bang ๐Ÿ™‚

In the morning a joined what seemed like a million other tourists on the small 30 minute ferry to Isla Mujeres. Another place I had already visited in 2008. What I remembered from this place was some crazy turquoise colored beaches. That was also what I found this time. In fact, in my mind this place competes with Railay in Thailand for the most beautiful beach in the world… I’m still not sure which place is winning, it’s a tough call.

My friend Zalo who I stayed with in Playa del Carmen the other day told me he would be coming to Cancun for the night. I was very happy to see Zalo at the port as I returned from the island. Zalo even gave me a traditional Mexican sombrero – and so the fun times could begin ๐Ÿ™‚

We first went to yet another local beach for a few beers…

Then we went out to the modern hotel zone to watch the sunset and take a few more photos.

We finished the night back in Cancun with a few more beers, tacos, a traditional band, and yet another hat. What is not to love about Mexico?

My time in Mexico was short but intense. Thanks a million to Zalo for making it a little more fun. Hope to see you soon amigo. And so I am more or less ready for a new chapter on this adventure to begin. Tomorrow I will be flying to Fort Lauderdale, Florida!
