Cancun, Mexico

A journal entry from: Cycle Mexico - Panama

 June 3rd - 7th

 Well we arrived on Wednesday night into Cancun, tired after a long flight. The flight was actually pretty good and we both cried during the film Marley and Me (well I didn't really cry but Yasmin said she saw a tear - actually it was sweat).

We went to our hotel that we had booked on the internet, not knowing what to expect as it was in the Zona Hotelra in Cancun but we were very pleasently surprised. The hotel was beautiful and the beach is great. It is just what we need to relax for a couple of days after our very hectic schedule of the weeks building up to the trip.

 We have spent a couple of days just resting and chilling out and it has been great. Tomorrow we finish preparing our bikes and equipment before heading off down the long road south. We hope to make it to Puerto Morelos on Sunday, and Playa Del Carmen on Monday. This is about 80 km in total and we will have to see how we hold up cycling in this heat. A few more margaritas tonight should help us to get in shape.

Wow... Do you really have to use your bikes? Why not sell them and stay a couple of more days in "Paradise". Guess not? Well, then we only wish you good luck and what ever you do, take it easy. Hugs
