Inflatable Iguanas and More

Iguanas are big lizards and I see them all the time because I am in Mexico.  Some live in tropical forests, some in deserts, etc… The green iguana is one that some people keep as a pet but they usually die in the first year of when they become a pet.  They don’t normally get to live the way they do in wild life.  I also do not know why, but other iguanas such as the Blue Iguana and others are endangered. Iguanas also maintain their sharp teeth and usually their own… Read More

Ancient Ruins on a Scorching Hot Day – Tulum

Tulum is known for its ruins overlooking sky-blue ocean.  It is sometimes referred to as “Zama”, the “City of Dawn.”  The ruins are the third most visited site in Mexico. On August 1, my family and I visited those ruins.  Our plan for the day was to wake up early, spend an hour traveling to the ruins, take an hour to observe them and take photos, then hang out at an all-inclusive resort for the rest of the day.  It would be an easy-going, fun morning, then relaxing time at the beach… Read More

Cozumel: Day 3

We woke up and ate at the all-inclusive breakfast again.  The rest of the morning was lazy and relaxing, hanging out in our bedrooms, watching T.V.  In the afternoon, we took a personal tour from 1-5.  We hired a taxi driver to take us around Cozumel to get a better feel for it.  It was a lot of fun because what we did was drive to one place, hop out, snorkel; get back in the car, drive some more, hop out, and snorkel again.  It was rather active, so by the time… Read More
