On the plane on my way to Cancun right now. My friend Ann is sitting next to me. We asked someone to switch seats. I was hoping to get wifi on the plane but can’t find where there appears to be the option, even to pay for it. Oh well…
So this is my first big travel adventure since last February. It seems traveling arrangements from checking in at the airport to putting travel alerts on the cards is so much convenient. Just now I have had the opportunity to do my travel alerts online with the ‘chat now’ service. So Awesome! No waiting long time on hold, you get what you need in an instant.
Sorry I had to check out for a while. I switched seats with someone on the plane to be next to my friend. And then what do you know we arrive half and hour early. Yet it still took till 7:30 pm to get to our hostel in Tulum. From taking the bus from Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen for 120 MEX (11 USD). Then Playa del Carmen to Tulum which cost 38 pesos (3 USD). Yeah it was cheap but the bus called the Mayab is a little more rundown than the Ado buses.
We arrived at our hostel, checked in and can open bar tabs on a computer using your room chip that comes with the key. My friend and I decided to walk around after getting a beer at the hostel bar. We ate dinner in a little outdoor restaurant and lucky for us the special for tonight is ceviche! Absolutely delicious the best I have had ever! Though it is not Mexican food.
Needing a shower I returned to the hostel and freshened up, since I have been sweating all day. now I am drinking more Sol Beer and sitting in a hammock. This hostel has a dozen hammocks to lounge and the sky on top is covered from view with trees. (I will get a picture later). I am going to check out again and this will be copied and pasted from my ipad notes/journal onto the blog post. Tomorrow will go to the beach and see the ruins.
