Progreso
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We did the excursion to Uxmal through carnival and we're glad we did. We boarded a bus just after getting off the ship and it was a relatively quick ride to Uxmal of an hour and 45 minutes. Our guide gave us some history of Mayans before be arrived and a few tidbits of advice. He also led us around the ruins and explained many features that we would have missed on our own. We were then given about an hour and a half to explore on our own. We couldn't climb the Pyramid of the Magician, but climbed several others including the Great Pyramid. It is a steep climb and good shoes are a must. In early April the weather was like Georgia in August, so I'm glad we weren't there in August. We slept most of the way back to the port. It was a very good excursion.

Cozumel
Beach Break Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We made reservation at Mr. Sanchos for a beach day and we were very glad we did. We did the All-inclusive, which included food, table, chairs, drinks (both regular and alcoholic), hammocks, and a floating bed. The food was good as were the drinks. Julio was our server and he did a great job. The drinks were not too strong and definitely not watered down, so we were very happy with them. The kids loved the water park, which was $12 extra per person. They also loved the pool. After arriving we had to walk past several vendors who were persistent in asking us to buy things, but we said no and kept walking, so it wasn't a problem. We had to run the same gauntlet on the way out, but it wasn't too bad. They took our picture as soon as we arrived and later wanted to sell us the picture for $15 or $30 framed. As we left they dropped the price to $10 unframed, but we passed on it.
