After the end of our first long trip in August, I was enticed back into the working world for a couple of months by my former employer. It was great to see everyone and do a little catching up. The short work assignment ended just before Thanksgiving.
With our next road trip not starting until the end of January, we looked at options to get someplace warmer for a week or two. Never having been to Mexico before and with early December having off-season prices, we decided to explore a bit of the Yucatan. Flights into Cancun were cheap (about $300), so the plan was to rent a car and check out a couple of cities, some more Maya ruins (we’d been to Tikal in Guatemala and a couple of sites in Belize) and finish up with some beach time before heading back for the Christmas holiday.
