Livin La Vida Loca, in Cancun, Mexico....

We just got back from a short 5 day trip to Cancun, Mexico. It was practically a free trip since we went on a time-share presentation. It took about 2 hours to get there due to air traffic and about one hour to fly home (just another perk to living in South Florida)! This was my valentines gift from Uday and also to celebrate our two year anniversary as a couple.

In our short time we were able to see one of the 7 Wonders of the World which was one of the sites built by the Mayan tribes (some 2000 years ago). This site is called "Chichen Itza". It has a very interesting history. We were told that Mel Gibson's movie, "Apoctolypto" was not filmed there but rather on a replica in mexico (for those of you who may have seen this movie). I have not seen the movie but since visiting the site and learning the true history I am more interested in seeing the movie. After visiting the ruins in the heat we got to go swimming in a Sonata (sinkhole). It was so cold and it felt so refreshing... legend has it that it leads to the other side of the world via underground rivers!! It was a lot of fun!

We also visited "Senor Frog's" restaurant for dinner and could hardly eat since the waiters were always pulling us up to dance or engage in some activity. Very stimulating and fun place to hang!! And of course no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to the infamous Coco Bongo's Nightclub!! We got some cool pictures even though our camera does not take the best pictures in the dark. It was so entertaining that we hardly had anytime or space to dance, but it was Mucho Caliente!!

We also went snorkeling and visited "La Isla Mujeres" (Island of Women). The beach was very beautiful and we got a great picture of a pirate ship! Here we also learned that this is a favorite vacation spot for Santa Claus!!
We had a really good time in Cancun and we survived another Time Share Presentation without buying one.

It so funny when you say "we survived another Time Share Presentation without buying one" I remember one time when we was in Las vegas that we took one of does for free tickets and it was the worst 2 hours of my trip! Does people know what they doing boy, They don't want to give up until you buy! lol
