We spent a week in Mexico in and around Valladolid, Mérida and ended our trip with a relaxing stay on Holbox Island. I loved being able to explore the cenotes (cavernous fresh water swimming holes), Mayan archeological sites and the Rio Lagartos water reserve during the afternoon and return back to the city of Valladolid or Mérida in the evening for a tasty meal of authentic Mayan cuisine. It was a perfect mix of outdoor adventure, food and culture. We met many friendly people along the way...we made efforts to communicate as much as possible in Spanish and it completely enriched our travel experience. A truly unforgettable trip!
