5-12 to 5-13 2016 Trip to Chetumal Mexico

We moved into a new place and we haven't posted much because we have been organizing the new place and doing boring stuff not worth writing about.  Our new place is great, but needed some personalizing.  We will post some pictures soon.  Anyway we needed fans, curtains, organizers, chairs, lights, kitchen items, etc.  We had heard that the selection is better and prices cheaper in Mexico.

We weren't sure what to expect and were in the mood for an adventure.  Our schedule was tight, we should have stayed 2-3 nights ideally, but we were in a hurry and we stayed in Chetumal for only one night.

The picture doesn't really show you how blue the water was as we passed through Corozal, Belize on our way to Mexico.

Welcome to Mexico

We stayed at the Capital Plaza Hotel, probably one of the nicer hotels in the city, for $47 US a night!

Mexican Walmart
Between Walmart, Home Depot, Auto Zone and a grocery, we got most everything we needed at very reasonable prices.

What I thought was just going to be a big grocery store (which had lots of gluten free goodies) turned out to be another
Walmart-like store.

Back in Belize!  Another view of the aqua water in Corozal as we head home.

The hills on the left form a feature that locally is called "Sleeping Giant" because it kind of looks like the profile of a giant
lying on his back.

Enjoying the lush green hillsides as we go through the Maya Mountains on the Hummingbird Highway.
