It’s over already?

This is the opening to the cenote (sink hole) that we were able to rappel down into at Pac Chen

The temple at Chichen Itza

We returned from Mexico yesterday afternoon. The trip was so amazing! We visited Chichen Itza, Xcarat, Xel-Ha, Pac Chen, and many more places while in the Yucatan Peninsula. Each new place we visited offered a new and wonderful experience. Some of these experiences included visiting ancient Mayan ruins, snorkeling in undergroud rivers, and rappelling into a cenote (sink hole). I learned so much about the Mayan civilization and it’s history. I never could have imagined what an experience the trip was going to be. I can’t believe it’s over already. I will never forget this spectacular week in the Yucatan!
