  • Magic Mayan marvels in Mexico! « Greenheart Voyagers
    locate on the internet for Downtown Not in my budget range the Hotel Rey del Caribe does look nice and offers recycling bins still v rare anywhere in Cancún has alternative sources for power and even a couple of rooms with a composting toilet In the afternoon I volunteered at the Red Cross Cruz Roja and helped box up aid food packages for the victims of the Haiti earthquake Saturday saw a visit to the laid back island of Isla Mujeres as everyone had been highly recommending it I buddied up with Joanne from NY and we shared a cab to the port A modern boat complete with on board drinks sellers and top deck musicians takes foot passengers from Cancun s Puerto Juárez to Isla The Ultramarina ferry 140 pesos return Once on the isle there are plenty of cheapish hotels or try the Hostel Poc Na down at the beach which looked fun I enjoyed a great swim from a fine sandy beach and if I d had more time I would have checked out the nature reserve located at far end of the isle Had lunch at cheap restaurant veggie huaracha rice and beans and a cold beer all cost less than 50 pesos With the wind picking up took a further stroll around top end of island had a local coffee and hopped back on the ferry to Cancún Colectivo back to bus terminal 5 pesos Well worth checking out Isla Mujeres then Next time I ll stay for a couple of nights to explore the isle properly and get to the nature reserve Monday 18th January 2010 It looked like Belize was next on the cards So it was off to the south of the Yucatan in preparation for a border crossing the following day This meant a 10 30am ADO bus Cancun to Chetumal 256 pesos five and a half hours Overcharged by taxi 50 pesos to Hostel Chetumal This is a nice family run hostel dorms around 180 pesos on Calle Sicilia and San Slavador but is not close to anything of interest or near the water front I took a local town stroll to get my bearings Chetumal has lots of shops and some big supermarkets for those stocking up before heading for Belize There s also an excellent Mayan Museum and a load of Pharmacies but don t try and buy beer from shops after 9pm for some reason they have a rule forbidding it I bought a filling and tasty spicy tamale for dinner from a place near my lodgings Fellow hostellers Anthony from Bristol and Flemish Belgian lassies Laura and Fyne were great company and we chatted and shared travellers tips and tales till bedtime Tuesday 19th January 2010 Laguna Bacalar near Chetumal Mexico Of an afternoon buddied up with hostel pals and we took shared taxi to Calle de la Independencia 15 pesos opposite Red Cross where shared taxis took the four of us 25 pesos 40km north of Chetumal to Laguna Bacalar The large lagoon 60km long allows you good possibilities to swim chill stroll around the shore and to take photos of its seven shades of blue waters Come dusk return trip to Hostel Chetumal and preparation for bus tomorrow At the hostel I checked my emails and found that Belize ex pats Richard and Alisa of colloidal silver fame were not actually in Belize as hoped but in Mérida back up in the north of the Yucatan peninsular So handbrake on change of plans and I hastily booked a bus to Mérida as I was not wishing to visit Belize without my buds being there Wednesday 20th January 2010 11am bus to Mérida 256 pesos 6 5 hours walked to Posada Casa Chelia guesthouse www casachalia com Greeted by affable Belgian co owner Jan Did an evening stroll around town up street 62 to the Zócalo main square and checked out a couple of the other fine plazas The squares were busy with people performing and singing to the crowds chatting chilling on the benches or having their shoes polished I grabbed a couple of bits for dinner and headed back to the hostel keen to see more in the light of day tomorrow About Mérida What to see Plaza Mayor shaded by giant laurel trees for locals to relax chat and enjoy free internet Seen as the main square and was the center for the conquistador Francisco Montejo in 1542 when Mérida was founded Standing magestic on the square we find two of the finest buildings in Mérida The Cathedral enormous and with soaring facades the oldest in the entire American continet built in Spanish Renaissance style between 1562 and 1598 A pink palace lines the north side of the square el Palacio del Gobernador This was built in 1892 and is open to the public to admire its architecture and stunning murals by Fernando Castro Cacheco which decorate its patios One should also visit the immense Mérida Market located on Calle 65 where everything from fruit and chillis to hats hammocks and traditional dresses can be bought And don t forget some colonial mansion spotting with a stroll down the tree lined boulevards of Paseo Montejo These are just a few starters Mérida has a lot to offer Thursday 21st January 2010 Chatted with hostel owners Jan and Rosalina about volunteer possibilities at Casa Chalia checked out their studio lodging for potential volunteers and then took a long stroll around town Anyone wanting to volunteer in Mexico in this town do contact me Met Richard and Alisa at the Hyatt Mérida hotel for a pretty reasonable buffet lunch 109 pesos considering this is the Hyatt and headed afterwards up to their beach house they were renting west of Progresso a seaside town 45minutes north of Mérida Progresso s possible claim to fame is its pier a lengthy 8km long so as to allow cruise ships and other large vessels to dock From our
