Mexican Holiday '99

My Mexican Holiday - 1999

For my 1999 winter holiday, I went to the Yucatan Peninsula in southeast Mexico. Yucatan is bordered on one side by the Gulf of Mexico, and on the other side by the Caribbean Ocean.

Actually the Yucatan is not the prettiest of places. It is totally flat with no lakes or above ground rivers to speak of, since the entire peninsula consists of limestone.

However, what it lacks in natural scenery, it makes up and then some in beautiful Mayan and Spanish colonial remains.

Included in my Cozumel swim time, and one of the highlights of the entire trip was the most fantastic dolphin encounter. I got to stroke a dolphin and even hold her in my arms. What an absolute thrill!!
