Dec 27th. The beach in Playa del Carmen. From here we started to the dive trips in the ocean.
Bonnie and I came back to Mexico from Guatemala. We went diving in Cenotes around Tulum and Playa del Carmen, and had a few dives in the Ocean near Playa del Carmen. And Silvester in Cancun...:-)

The massive, strong guys. I compare them to bouncers in a nightclub. The guys who throw you out if they want to. Still they are quite elegant. But really strong.
Diving Cenotes is still one of the most special kinds of diving I know. Its like flying in a crystal clear world, crystal clear water...

but the greatest dive in a cenote was maybe Taj Mahal. A long tunnel underwater, with a crisp clear separation layer between freshwater and saltwater (whic is called halocline). And it has got a few holes in the ceiling of the cave, where the daylight enters the
