We drove down the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula from the colorful Isla Mujeres and explored the ruins of Tulum. The Mayan Kings had it pretty sweet here. The location is awesome. The King's pad overlooks the best beach and the lovely aquamarine water.

Nowadays the iguanas run the place judging by the number of their occupational party. Often found basking in the sun or clambering over vertical surfaces, the iguanas most likely appreciated the heat that the stone buildings gave off, and the relative protection of being on a wall.

Next door to this popular tourist destination is a low-key beach town. A few yummy restaurants, rentals and permanent residents round it out. The actual town of Tulum is a must-see.

Sailboat in Puget Sound

Each day a short jaunt down the river from my camp site was rewarded with a crystal-clear and refreshing swim in the McCloud River. Sometimes I bathed, sometimes dived into the rapids from the rocks, and one time even gave the dog a bath in the cool water.
