Winter break in the Yucatan

I realize that I’ve really gotten behind in writing our family blog.  The last entry was just before the kid’s winter break from school and we’ve packed a lot in between then and now. The kids had over 2 weeks off from school for their winter break and we made the most of it!

Over winter break, our Mexican family joined us for 5 fun days here in Playa

We had a fantastic 4 days in and around Merida. We spent one afternoon in Progresso (to the north), spent a day touring at a sisal farm, spent several evenings in the center of Merida, visited the Mayan Museum, and also spent a day visiting the Mayan ruins of Uxmal (about an hour and a half south of Merida).

On the way home to Playa, we visited an awesome cenote right next to the Ek Balam Mayan Ruins….it was CRAZY deep!

We are really hoping to make it back to Merida and the surrounding area again soon!
