Keep it moving until the sun comes up if you want – Cancun nightlife is the stuff of legends.

Adios Mexico, but we’ll be back! This morning we leave Cancun and head to Chetumal for some exploring & maybe bite to eat, before boarding our water taxis into Belize.

We rise before the sun to watch daybreak unfold from atop the Mayan ruin, Templo IV… so prepare for amazing!
