Yesterday we picked up our rented car and drove to see some ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum. We had to walk along a dusty road to the area where we bought our tickets and we saw a kitty that was stretched out and sleeping near the edge.
Everything was made of light grey stone and there were many large lizards. The lizards liked to eat small white fruit that fell off the nearby trees.
We stayed for a bit and then we drove into town to find some lunch. I had chicken with chocolate sauce and some lemonade at a small restaurant. The chocolate sauce didn't taste like chocolate though, it just tasted spicy and wasn't very nice.
Next we drove to a cenote but found we didn't have money to pay for the entrance fee. Then we went to another cenote but it wasn't quite what we were looking for which was just some snorkeling in a cenote with no guide. Eventually we went back to town to exchange some money and went back to the first place.
Once we got in the cenote it was breathtaking but it took a little while to get fully in because the water was very chilly. After moving around a bit everything started to warm up. The cenote was amazing from underwater. It was like a small beach had been put into a cave and submerged. The fish were were gray with yellow tails and ranged from small to medium.
We went to another cenote afterwards on the same site that had columns of rocks jutting out of the ceiling and ground. The fish were the same but the grey fish also came in a large size as well. Also there was a large brown fish about a foot long that was swimming around by the rocks with small fins and brown and white stripes.
After that we drove back to Playa and returned the car. In the evening we went out to a restaurant which made very good pizza. We also got free dessert which was a very delicious tiramisu and some cheese cake which was also very nice.
