tulum, punta allen and sian ka an

An update of our travel!!

272. Km

We are completely destroyed, laying in a hotel room, finally clean, drinking beer and we are enjoying the comfort of the hotel more then ever before

After this last bit of cycling we started competing in three categories:
1. Who has more mosquito bites
2. Who has more cuts
3. Who has more weird allergic reactions

So what happened since our last post. We cycled 44 km to get to Tulum, city with nice beaches, Mayan ruins and surprisingly a lot of tourists from Europe.

Since Danny became a real fisher (what gives me a lot of time to read books) we decided to go to Punta Allen, a small fishing village, 50 km from Tulum. On the way there we stopped twice to catch some fish and crabs.

After that we decided that we should continue, we still had to do around 20 km. That did not seem like much, however what we did not expected was that the road was going to be horrible. It was so bad...that it took us 4,5 hour and we came to Punta Allen at dawn.

And we deserved some good food...

Next day we were relaxing, fishing again and watching crocodiles

We found out that we can cross the "river" to the Sian Ka'an biosphere reservation and cycle from there, 80km through jungle to our nextdestination: Felipe Cerrillo Puerto.

The road was not as good as people told us... It was like a mountain bike trail... All the time... For 80km...

But we heard a lot of exotic birds, monkeys and saw a big tapir and "Un"fortunatelly we did not see any jaguars and pumas.

You are bicycle maniacs. That is terrible road and 80km in the heat. But you did it. I will not do it in a car...too bumpy. Glad you got to hotel and a shower. Keep up the fun blog.

Have lost the youthful enthusiasm and energy to even consider this method of travel, but have enjoyed those places, and it's interesting reading. Thanks.
