Road to Tuxtla
above the clouds
For security reasons we changed the route from Oaxaca to Queretaro. Since we heard from a taxi driver in San Cristobal that we’ve got very lucky that we didn’t get robbed and/or shot by rebels, we weren’t so keen about driving through the jungle for another 600km anymore. 😉
San Cristobal itself was pretty nice even though it’s one of the poorest regions in Mexico. We made a trip to a nearby village with a very special church. Sadly it was forbidden to take pictures inside the church and they already have killed people who tried to. So I was convinced to not take pictures. 😀

The numbers for yesterday: 1100km, 18h and one (probably) dead dog.
But let’s start from the beginning. We managed to get started from our apartment in Cancun at 7:30am. The track was good until the last 200km. These took us about almost 4h cause we had to go directly through the jungle with no more than 50km/h.
Totally exhausted we arrived at around twelve just to notice that the hostel fucked up our reservation and that there was no bed left. After almost one hour we got four beds in a hostel nearby. We went then via taxi to a taco place and around 2am to bed.
Just now we discovered that the way to Ochaxa will be like 600km of jungle streets. It’s gonna be interesting. 😀
Still not in the mood to write so just a few shots.
more pictures after the break…
$55, three bars, all you can drink, a lot of nice girls and a fantastic show. We started in a bar named Congo which was quite okay but nothing special. Second one was named Senor Frog’s nothing special about this one either. But the third bar, “Coco Bongo“, was just awesome. It’s a mix between a Bar, a Nightclub and a Theater.
Just a short update for today. Everything is fine over here and Cancun is a nice place to stay. Mainly we’re lazy at the beach or at the pool. Yesterday we went to a water park called XelHá. It’s a natural lagoon where you can go snorkeling or just swimming. Entrance fee is about $79 (U.S.) and you get all you can drink and eat inclusive. You only have to pay extra if you wanna swim with the dolphins or for the scuba diving.
The day before we went to Isla Mujeres. Back then we booked one of these rip-off tours with snorkeling and a meal. The meal wasn’t that bad, but snorkeling with a live vest is pointless. 😉
Plan for the rest of the week, hit one or two Cancun parties.
