The other day, Matt turned 30.  To help celebrate the occasion and it being a little while since our last trip, we started looking for a nearby destination for revels.  Matt’s answer was Cancun and since there were non-stop flights on sale from SLC, Katie and I got onboard.

Let me preface this by saying I really enjoyed the slice of Mexico that we saw, albeit a narrow one.  Katie and I hadn’t been past our southern border and we found the weather nice, the people friendly, and the food fantastic.  But still, we were miserable almost the entire time.

The trip started smoothly with Katie and I arriving at the resort one day ahead of Lyle and Matt.  With the extra time, we immediately took a bus out to nearby Chichen Itza.  The bus ride was long and hot, luckily there was a stop for some authentic Mexican cuisine and souvenir shopping.  Arriving at the grounds, we made our way to the iconic temple.
