Costa Maya - Mexico

At Costa May in Mexico, Chris and I went ashore and explored the Mayan ruins of Chacchoben which is surrounded by jungle. We visited the sacred temples and almost died from heat exhaustion after climbing the steps of the Gran Basamento which was above tree level.

The next day we docked in Roatan, The Honduras and had my favourite excursion of the entire trip which was playing with the bottlenose dolphins.  

Who could resist this happy smile?? Margarita was a star, only 3 years old and considered an adolescent in dolphins terms... they don't reach maturity until they are 6 years old.


  1. Wow, more super photos. What an amazing trip.

  2. I would LOVE to visit the sacred Mayan temples. This looks like it was a fabulous trip and one you will remember, if for no other reason than the extreme heat. Of course, spending time in the water with the dolphins made the heat far less intense. I sure enjoyed the photos of the Mayan ruins and temples, as well as you and Chris with the dolphins. It will be fun to see how you turn these memories into a book or journal. And I bet you collected at least one statue for your collection.


Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
