I love the tropics. The vivid colors. The creepy creatures.
You just don't see these sights in the big city.
Iguanas slithered around all over our resort.
The Mayan villages teemed with dirty little chickens.
Deep in a cenote (which is like a cave or a collapsed hole in the ground) we found a turtle pond.
Nearby grew limes (if only we'd had the tequila or a nice Corona on hand).
However, I'm not exactly sure what this rodent is - he crawled out of a swimming pool one morning. Any guesses?
