Jul 6, 2004 - Cancun and Chichen Itza, Mexico

Flew business class from Toronto to Cancun courtesy of Richards new found silver status so arrived fresh as daisies even though we were up at 4.30 am.

We got tied up to the pier early morning with the weather cloudy and some rain as I got on a ferry to Playa Del Carmen and a bus to Tulum, this was a trip by Carnival. We get to Tulum and have a guided tour of the area with some free time to explore on our own, a light mist at time but a good cool day. Making it back to Playa Del Carmen checking it out then back on the ferry to Cozumel, a bit more walking about then back to the ship we left the pier at 11:30 PM. On the 19th we have another day at sea.
