Sorry to leave you hanging...I haven't quite got the mojo to do a real post. Here are some of the photos from Costa Maya. We took a tour to the Chaccoben Mayan Ruins about an hour ( on a slow road) from Costa Maya. Costa Maya is one of those places that didn't even have electricity until 9 years ago when a cruise port was carved out of the land. There is a faux village type shopping area and not much else. We had a wonderful guide on the bus who explained a lot about the Mayans and the Mayan lands; she really made the trip go by in a flash. Very poor countryside, but the ruins, which were uncovered in the mid to late 90s were fascinating.
See the black "spots" inside the hollow tree trunk? Tarantulas...eek!
The "faux" village beach area
The lunar temple
The solar temple
A teensy tiny orchid. Apparently orchid flowering season had finished.
Did I mention it is hot in the jungle? But, no whining since it was snowing back home!!
Next up...Roatan and Janet with Cappuchin monkey??
