Uxmal ruins

We rode south and west again to Uxmal. Travelling on the back roads involved some pot hole dodging. Got to love an amazing drive thru the jungle on an almost deserted road. Dan was very uncharacteristically swerving on the road and it was not until he stopped a few minutes later that I found he got stung on the face by a bee that came thru the crack his viser was open.

We managed to get a super deal at the Hacienda Uxmal which is located just outside the park.

It was neat hiking thru the restored and unrestored parts of the site.

There was a huge number of very big iguanas all over too.

After the moring in the hot sun, the best part was arriving back to the hotel and being treated to a cold limeade and a ice cold scented towel to freshen up with.
