    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—CHICHEN ITZA PART 2 One down, six to go! In yesterday’s post I started talking about our day trip we took during our spring break vacation in Cancun. We were at the all inclusive resort of Grand Bahia Principe Coba in Cancun and even though they did a great job of offering enough activities to keep anyone busy, we decided to leave for a day to do some exploring. We booked a trip to the Mayan pyramid and ruins of Chichen Itza with a tour company called Cancun Passion. We got on a colorful and comfortable tour bus and made the 2.5 hour drive from our resort…

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Underwater Camera and Watch Review

    SPRING BREAK CANCUN TIPS—Underwater Camera and Watch Review Just add water! Expensive electronics such as digital cameras and dressy wristwatches don’t usually get along too well with wet places. And we were going to a resort with 4 swimming pools, a sister resort with another three pools and about a half a mile of beach along the Caribbean. Was this a recipe for disaster? Oh come on.
