Wayback Wednesday: Playa del Carmen

The ruins of Tulum not far from Carmen del Playa...
The ruins at Tulum...
My wife and I are off for a week to catch up on our vitamin D in Playa del Carmen on Mexico's Caribbean coast.

During our last stay there three years ago we toured the ruins at Tulum (above). It's the remains of a Mayan settlement that flourished about 700 years ago. It sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean to the east.

While there we also snorkeled to see some of the local sea turtles. I very nearly became intimately acquainted with particular guy?gal? who apparently was too near-sighted to realize that I was directly in their flight path.

A sea turtle on a collision course with me...
Close enough to kiss!
