Viva Mexico!

For Spring Break this year Aaron and I headed to back to Mexico, but this time we hit up the Atlantic side- Cancun to be exact! Here is a little of what we were up to.

Pool time!

Beach time!

Hammock time!

Snorkel time!

The weather was sunny and warm but very windy for most of our week so our plans to snorkel in the ocean in Puerto Morelos had to be canceled. We ended up going to a fresh water lagoon that flows into the ocean, where the wind was not an issue. Tons of fish!

Tennis time!

History time!- Chichen Itza

We booked an LDS tour guide to get a unique perspective on the Mayan ruins (gracias Carlos!). We cannot be certain that Mayan beliefs had roots in Book of Mormon times; but it was interesting to see how certain Mayan symbols could be viewed as having Christian ties, although their original meaning would have been obscured by years of apostacy. Regardless of origin, it was amazing to see the remains of what was once a significant civilization.

Cliff diving into a sink hole time!

Sushi time!

Even in Mexico! I can't say that we would recommend it - we're pretty sure this appetizer came from Costco. But we certainly enjoyed lots of tacos, nachos, and virgin pina coladas.

We had a blast! What made it even more sweet was knowing that we had conveniently missed two blizzards while we were gone! Perfect timing!
