Yesterday we had a perfect mix between sightseeing, eating and a little bit of beach time. But let’s start with the sightseeing. We have been in Ezná, which is close to Campeche, to visit our first Mayan pyramid. Since the vegetation around here is jungle it was a complete different experience from earlier pyramids. Jungle and green all around and then these accurate situated buildings. It’s hard to imaging how they did all this without any technology. And I also really don’t know how they managed to not get eaten by mosquitoes. It was like war. Fighting to stay alive and not to loose any body parts.
Next stop was at the beach. Not a lot to tell about that. Sand, water and no waves. On our way back we were in a small restaurant which is only visited by locals. It was pretty crowed so we guessed that it has to be good. Well, after the meal we weren’t disappointed. It was delicious and amazingly cheap. Starter (shrimp cocktail), main dish (whole fish) and my drink less than 6€.
Right before we went to the guided night tour through the city, which wasn’t that good, I enjoyed the dusk from our terrace.
Today we will start, without any hurry, around noon to get to Merida. On our way we’ll try to get to another Mayan pyramid. Then after two more nights in Merida we’re finally on our way to awesome Cancun beach where we rented a house with pool right at the sea.
Can’t wait for the wicked weasels 😀
