It’s Day 1 of our trip to the Yucatan. We’re staying at the Royal Sands, one of the best resorts in Cancun. We had to get up at 3:00 AM to catch a 6:00 AM flight. As a result, even though it’s only 8:20 PM, everyone is fast asleep. Good opportunity to do a little blogging.


Over the next couple of weeks, we plan to do some diving, visit some archaelogical sites, and indulge in as much of the local culture as we possibly can. Today, though, was a travel and collapse on the beach day. The travel itself was mostly uneventful, although when you combine last week’s collapse of Jetsgo with the first day of spring break, it was pretty busy.

The customs line in Cancun is always a hassle, although it has gradually improved over the last five years. No matter what you do, it always takes a long time, and there’s always at least one obnoxious spring breaker who can’t keep his excitement in check. This time, it took us a little over an hour to wend our way through the lines to the mexican customs posts, but my in-laws, who arrived a little later, reported a three hour wait.
