Mexico - Day 4 - XHLTN

Our next day in the Riviera Maya was spent on a jungle excursion including hiking, snorkeling, rapelling and ziplining. 

The adventure began with a ride in this heavy duty Death Truck™ which sped into the jungle with wild abandon.  We were told to keep our bags on the floor and our hands inside the truck at all times but we didn't really have a choice.  If you didn't hold on to that bar bolted to the floor then you would probably hit the roof or fly out the back.  It was one of the funnest things we did all day.

Neither of us had ever rapelled before so after a quick bit of training, down we went into the water-filled, underground cavern called a cenote.

After surviving the descent (you can see our ropes to the left) we posed for the ever-present photographer.
Then we snorkeled in the cenote for about 15 minutes.  The water is around 75 degrees year round which is a little chilly at first but quite refreshing as it was humid and in the 90s outside.

Next were a few zipline rides through the jungle.
What a great day!
