Beautiful pics, Jesus. Someday, when I am rich I will make it to all of those other places, too. Okay, well I never may make it, but I'll think about it!

Thanks guys, but you don't need to be rich to visit those places, just need to be in the region. And it's cheap.
I was thinking on going for a couple weeks and one thursday decided to give it a go, I left home before 11:00 a.m. and got there by 1:30, the toll road was mxp$33 each way, price of addmision to the "bowl/basin" was mxp$25 per person, to the hacienda was mxp$40 plus $25 for bringing a photo camera (videos $35 or $40 can't remember).
The quesadillas at a little restaurant inside the park were mxp$5 each, I had 6 (yeah, forget about diets), big soda mxp$8. I spent a looooooooong time at both places and got back home in time for dinner with friends at 21:00. I tell you, it was very cheap, I didn't even spend mxp$300 and that is including gas for my car. If any of you happen to drive through the central part of Mexico, give it a try, I may even go with you, I loved the place.

Still cheap to go, mxp $25 per person, children get free entrance.

We made a picnic and had a difficult time at the end, trying to drag the kids out of the water became a task extremely difficult.

Hey Kony, there's hope. We got you to Chichen Itza.

Yep, if you visit the Teotihuacan pyramids, is just like 45-60 minutes more to get there there.
Completely worth the trip.

Just a link to some more of my pics of that place.

yup, more than beaches:







The volcano is near Mexico city (60 km) and yesterday there were no clouds nor smog in the valley so I went there to have a closer look, The name is Iztaccihuatl (White Lady) - from left to right you can see the: head, chest, tummy, knees, feet.
