Day 1 - Got to the airport today around 6am EST, got through security by 6:30am, flight didn't leave until 9am. No biggie, had breakfast... and sat and chatted.
First stop - Charlotte (from Baltimore) great 1 hr flight. Layover was quick... got on flight to Cancun by 11:30 and off we went... weather was looking AMAZING... but as soon as we were about to land... rain... heavy rain... was kind of disaapointed... got through customs quickly... no hassle... walked straight out without talking to anyone... found our driver from BEST DAY... took about 25 min to get to Puerto Juerez, picked up two tickets 70 pesos each.. and exchanged 100 USD at a rate of 11.2 pesos per USD.... vs the airport @ 10 pesos per USD.
The ferry was quick... faster than i thought, it was VERY humid... but barable... we decided to walk to PA... site see a little bit... got to PA... checked in... our room is FANTASTIC... i could NOT have asked for better! made a quick reservation @ Satay and off we went to roam the streets....
bought a few cubans (are they real?) where are the best prices for them?
Food @ Satay was "ok" not what i expected... more on that later...
now i'm finishing up my PADI class... and can not WAIT for tomorrow... first day of diving!
6 MORE DAYS IN THIS PARADISE!
