We're back from Mexico!

My computer just crashed and I lost what I had already written! BUMMER! We left Playa del Carmen just in time yesterday. As we got to Cancun yesterday morning we were put on the early flight to Atlanta rather than the 11am flight! We said yes, and were lucky, since the 11am flight had a 2 hour delay! They said it might be canceled as well so we did good! 
We did relax, and walk a lot! We stayed at the RIU Palace Riviera Maya. Amazing!!! It was All Inclusive, so all food drinks were included.. we had liquor and soda's, water free in our room fridge.. all food, snacks! Of course we pigged out!! 
On Friday we took a tour to Chichen Itza, which I believe was the Mayan Capital. It was unbelievable! It started raining as we were getting ready to leave, so that worked out great!! It was about 2 hours away from the hotel. On Saturday we went to Xcaret! Amazing!! It was like a disney waterpark! Only with natural features.. there was a river in the caves.. it was 1/2 mile.. awesome! We had so much fun! As we were getting tired it started raining, so that worked out outsome for us! We're not much tanned, but had a great time! We'd do it again... Too much to see... this whole trip made me even more thankful for what I have. So sad to see the poverty and to think some people here complain and take things for granted.
