Bacalar

30 km from Chetumal is the Laguna de Bacalar, which is actually a huge lake. We spent a lovely day here on the dock and swimming in the crystal clear blue water. It is a great place to make a pit stop on your way to Cancun or Playa del Carmen.

Belize

We hemmed and hawed about whether the hassles to get there were worth the trip. In the end Daniel won out since he has never been to the Caribbean before. We chose to make for Ambergris Caye and Tio Pil’s on the beach. Getting there is a bit like trains, planes, and automobiles. Finally after a 90 min ferry crossing we arrived if a bit late.

This is a very laid back place. People walk around without shoes and drive golf carts in town. This is a fab spot for enjoying rum punch and a lot of hammock time.

The big event of the island week is the “Chicken drop” on Thursday night. You buy a numbered square on the board of 100 squares for 1 Bz= .50$US and you wait for the chicken to “drop”.

We joined the local and rented a golf cart for the afternoon to explore as far north and south as we could go. The road is paved for about 1 km in each direction then its off roading in a golf cart. It had rained heavily the day before so there was some adventure for sure. The big highlight for us was a day sailing to the even more laid back island of Caye Caulker with stops to snorkel the reef and at shark ray alley.

Playa del Carmen/Cancun/Cozumel

We drove north up the coast to Playa del Carmen for some relaxation on the Beach. The sand is white and the ocean is azure blue. We frequented our favorite place El Fogan for amazing tacos. Daniel's cousin and her husband are living on Isla Mujeres so they met us for lunch in Cancun.

Our Mexico City BMW club friend Fred was in the ironman Cozumel so we took the ferry over to cheer him on and got wrapped up in the excitement and energy of the event.

The new Xplor park is a great way to spend a day. They have off road vehicles, 14 zip lines, and swimming and rafting in rivers running in underground caves. They also have beaches and hammocks to rest up on. Video pending

Chichen Itza

Leaving Playa we headed back towards Tulum and then on to the cute litte village of Piste in the central Yucatan. People are super friendly here. Looking at their signs you can see their sense of humor. We had some great meals at a small restaurant near the main square.

The main attraction here is the nearby ruins of the mayan city of Chichen Itza. This is on e of the most visited Mayan sites in Mexico. We luckily got there at 8 when it opened. This was before it got very hot and absolutely mobbed with people. We did find a German bike parked beside us, but we unfortunately never saw the rider.

Merida the Capital of the Yucatan

Driving thru the jungle from Piste to Merida we hardly saw another vehicle and luckily very few tope. This is a lovely small city with several nice squares and churches. This is the first place we have seen free public wifi in all of the parks. There is also free entrance to a number of museums and galleries. The Cathedral is all lite up at night and with the full moon it was spectacular.

30,000 Pink Flamingos

After leaving Merida we rode west to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico at Celustun. It is famous for Octopus hunting and the almost 30,000 pink flamingos that flock here. We saw a few birds from the bridge, but hired a boat for an hour tour of the estuary. This got us up close to the flamingos as well as herons, and huge Canadian pelicans. We also toured thru the mangrove forrest. The town itself has a chain of restaurants along the white sand beach where we had amazing prawns and ceviche.

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. The next closest town is 14 km away, but there is a great little B&B there, the Pickled Onion run by Valerie a transplanted Brit. We had dinner there and enjoyed a traditional Yucatan meal Poc chuc or grilled pork steak with pickled onions of course. The ruins here are really amazing with very detailed facades. It was cool hiking thru the restored and unrestored parts of the site.You can even crawl into the pyramids to see the layers of building underneath. 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.

Campeche City

It was a short but fun drive to Campeche City the capital of the state.This place has a very European feel especially inside the ancient stone city walls where the building are all painted bright colours. It is also famous for amazing seafood. There are ruins of a number of the forts that defended the city. We visited the Fuerto San Miguel. We visited the lovely 17 th century Cathedral as well as a number of other churches in the city.

Campeche City

The remains of the old walls include the "Sea Gate" and the "Land Gate".The waterfront has a 3 km long walking, running, biking path along the sea shore.

Villahermosa and Tabasco

We had to start the long ride back to Morelia to see the Monarchs. From Campeche city it was 770 km over two days to Tuxtepec in the 34 degree heat.

At a check point we also strangely came across a circus truck with two tigers in the back.

On the road there were also hundreds of pilgrims in groups of 3 to 10 all riding bikes towards Mexico City for the Celebration of the Guadaloupe on December 12.

Puebla

We decided to go the back way to Puebla.Well this was one of our most difficult days since the Dempster.


Puebla 3 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


It took 9 1/2 hours to go 450 km. The first 4 hours were over curvy mountain roads thru small villages with hundreds of topes.

Puebla 5 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

The last 180 km included 50 km of road that was almost all potholes, a long stretch thru an industrial zone with heavy truck traffic and a huge amount of oil on the road, and the rest at dusk in traffic with the uber aggressive Puebla drivers.


DSC03646 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

We were greeted at the hotel by a fellow Canadian traveller who directed us to a local Cuban bar where we enjoyed food, drink, and a local musician. Puebla has I think has the nicest Cathedral I have seen in Mexico as well as a very nice Zocalo or central square.

Morelia

We were really on a mission to get to the Monarchs now. The 450 km drive to Morelia still took over 6 hours on the toll road.


Morelia 1 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

Leaving Puebla we did see some puffs of smoke from the volcano.


Morelia 7 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

For the first time in weeks we actually saw other riders, but unfortunately on all 3 occasions they were on the other side of the toll road. We all did wave madly at each other of course.

Morelia is known as the pink city because of all the buildings made from pink marble. It also famous for the birth place of La Michoacana, a massive chain of ice cream shops started by 3 illiterate brothers.

Morelia 33 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

Our hotel was very close to the main square and one block from the artisan market.

We met for dinner with our BMW friends Diana and Fred from Mexico City as they were in town as part of their tour of the pueblos magico.


Morelia 82 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


The city was really gearing up for the holidays. The Zocalo is all decorated with lights, a nativity, and a huge tree.

Morelia 100 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

An added treat was to meet Garry's brother Cliff who had come to visit from Britain.

We took a tour by bus of the city and then enjoyed a few s in a cafe on the square.
