Uno Mas Dia – We Fly Home for the Holidays

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. We fly out of Cancun tomorrow at noon, we go through customs in Chicago, one of the world’s busiest airports. We hope to be home by 9 PM. Our return flight back to MX is direct from Cleveland to Cancun on the 30th, it should be much easier. Our German friend Dierck will take us to Playa del Carmen Thursday morning to catch the airport bus which takes about an hour and cost only $10/person. It’s much easier than driving. It’s a first class bus and a pleasant drive. They leave every 45 minutes, so we never make reservations. If we miss one, we leave plenty of time to catch the next bus.

We had about 5 minutes of rain yesterday and it has been very hot. Several of the campers are now running their A/C. We just run our fans.



We will miss our walk on the beach where we watch the Pelicans dive for fish every morning.

The wide view below is looking toward where we sit each morning under the Palapas at the abandoned resort on the South end of the Xpu-Ha beach.

We won’t miss the big crowds of Mexican tent campers that arrive on this weekend for their Christmas holiday. Semana Santa lasts for about 10 days, so there may still be some campers here when we return.

I took my last kayak paddle for the year. I don’t think I’ll be heading off to WV to paddle in the next 10 days. I’m too used very warm weather and water temperatures.


I just noticed this 7 day forecast based on the Mayan calendar.

Looks bad for this Friday

  1. Semana Santa is the week leading up to Easter Sunday not the Christmas Holidays.

    Love your blog.
