So we had a week to kill after finishing a difficult 7 month project and ended up in Cancun. Being low season there were great deals on boats to hire and hotels were as I like them, comphy and cheap! We couldn’t get the Cat that we wanted which would have let us sail up and down the coast as we pleased but Allen Mason from Cancun Catamarans was good enough to scout us out another great deal with Luxury Motor Yachts Cancun who put us on a 45′ Sea Ray motor yacht with two crew and all you can eat and drink for three days and three nights.
Being a motor yacht and our super deal we couldn’t ask them to sail too far away from the lagoon. As it happens the weather was against us for most of the time with storms and or rain every afternoon into the evening. As you can see from the photos it was still a very cool time which I recommend to anyone. We also made it out to Isla Mujeres where Dylan had a quick dip in the ocean with a shark.
Of course what first trip to Cancun doesn’t have the obligitory day trip to Chichen Itza. Allen also set this one up for us a little cheaper than the fast talking Mexican guy with a heavy American accent in the lobby of our hotel. Unfortunately our hotel was last on the pick up list so I was squashed in the back seat of the otherwise comphy bus between two huge guys for the full 2.5 hour journey. The way back wasn’t much better!
All in all a great week without busin’ the budget. Well ok, we did go a bit over the original plan but a good time was had by all.
As usual, more photos here.
