Quick Vacation

No, I didn't drop off the face of the earth...my husband and I took a quick trip to warm and sunny Mexico. A nice long weekend in Playa del Carmen.

We had a great time and the weather couldn't have been better --- we left with snow on the ground at O'Hare and were welcomed by the warm breeze of the Carribean.

The resort we stayed at was connected to a really cool park called Xcaret. It was great to be able to spend a couple hours and then walk back for lunch for a quick nap. Some highlights included snorkeling an underground river, Snuba tour (cross between snorkeling and SCUBA) and Sea Trek tour.

Here's a picture of the Sea Trek thing...it was really cool and hilarious. We wore a big helmet that had oxygen pumped into it...so you could walk around and breathe underwater. I have some really funny pictures...but I don't have a scanner. I'll try to do it when I visit my mom's house later this week.

Haha great pictures of the smoking gang... are they going to be replacing the traveling gnome? "Back up... no don't back up!"
Where's the picture of you wearing your authentic Mexican headpiece? Please share!

I bet you had tons of fun! I've done Xcaret before - nice park, and the underground river thing was fun. I've done the Sea Trek too, but not Snuba. I'm a certified diver, but I don't dive any more because I have too much trouble with my sinuses afterwards. Still love snorkeling, though.
