My college roomate,Linda Reeves and I,both decided that we were SICK of the winter  and certain family situations,and so decided to head to the Riviera Maya for a week. Linda found us a great deal in a gigantic resort  there,about 1 1/2 hours south of Cancun! Our week included an excursion to the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Coba, beach time,walking, a dolphin show, fabulous gourmet eating and drinking...even a visit to our room on the last night by three raccoons!!!!(no photo of that,bummer! )

Our beautiful resort:Bahia Principe Akumal

Coba Temple

Starting the climb up to the top of Coba Pyrqmid

Looking straight down! This is the highest pyramid on the Yucatan peninsula..our leg muscles were VERY sore afterwards!

View from the top

These are called coatis,or coatamundis...kind of a cross between a raccoon and a possum!

Coati hoard! LOVE this photo!They were so fast that lots of pix turned out blurry like this!

Dolphin show
