We had a short 120 km drive to Chetumal Bay on the Caribbean Sea.

This is a very nice little town unlike most port/border towns. This is a multicultural place with lots of ethnic restaurants. We saw our first Bubble tea shop since leaving Vancouver. English is widely spoken here since it borders Belize.

There is a fantastic museum here of the Culture of the Maya. It was actually closed as they are just completing renovations, but the director was fetched and she said that we could tour the museum as we had come from so far. It is set up on three levels with the daily life of the Maya described in the middle, the life of the Gods and the stars at the top, and the underworld located below.
