After nearly 7 months inland, we decided it was time to hit the beach, so we flew to Cancún. We were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't *too* over-run by Americans, and we actually heard lots of Spanish being spoken.
We also spent a few days in the beachside town of Akumal, and visited the ruins in Tulum. To be honest that was a bit of a waste of time, as it was so hot and humid the girls didn't enjoy it at all (aside from the ice-cream at the end). Another day we tried to swim in a cenote, but there were so many mosquitoes we couldn't even get out of the car. Poor Clementine is a mozzie magnet!
