Day two:
Hit the beach and fished...caught a shitload of sargasm grass, no pics.
Had breakfast, then took the fam for a walk on the beach, ran across sandflea's joint and hooked up an "eco kayak tour" for the five of us let me bring rods. (Guide boat for two is $450 US/ day, couldn't swing that).

We grabbed some lunch and then were picked up.

Kids felt right at home w/ the sand floors and feeding stray dogs from the table:

Day three:
We leave Holbox to pick up my oldest from the airport, as soon as we hit Cancun we get pulled. The cop says it's a $200 US fine and my wife has to go to the police station on Monday. She says "can I just pay it here?" He asks her to get out of the van, she comes back and says he wants a hundred bucks US. I have like 200 pesos on me ($10) and my son says, I've got some, my wife still had US cash...we gave him 52 bucks.And we're back on our way. I really wanted to cut the fucker's head off w/ the machete...but they had three other cars pulled over and the Federales were 200 meters up the road w/ machine guns. So I just thanked the kind officer.
We make a point to stay 5 under the speed limit and have a new game plan if she gets pulled again on our way out of town.
We made it out safe and my daughter brought a wad of pesos at a way better exchange rate from the US.

Drove down to Playa Del Carmen. Stayed one night at Cocoa's Cabanas:

It was monsoonal all night and still raining when we got to Sian Ka'an, a 1.3 million-acre biosphere reserve, and we only have 33 KM to go.
Did I mention it's a dirt road?
