The Riviera Maya: Part 3 - Sacred Places / JULY 26 & 27 2014

Our holiday in the Mayan Riviera continues as we visit road-side shrines, bike around the ancient Mayan ruins of Cobá, and climb the tallest pyramid on the Yucatan Peninsula. Despite this terribly demanding schedule, we somehow managed to find the time to spend another day relaxing on the beach and  jump in one more refreshing cenote. Sacred paradise!
