Muyil

The dock at Muyil.




They wanted 600p for the tour to go and float down the channel and although not really in my budget I decided to go and was cast in with a small Mexican family, mother and daughter and son in law. I could see mom wasn't real comfortable with this but lightened up a bit when I didn't need translations.





So you go blasting across the first laguna and come to a spot that just looks like brush.. and then...

You travel through this channel to the next lagoon.










While out either side the marshland seems to go on and on.




The next lagoon is much larger and then you come to the channel to the sea.




A human croc hides in the roots.




Tie up at the dock by the old Mayan outpost and then float down the channel. I let the mom and kids get ahead to have their privacy and you just drift with the current, fairly strong steady speed, and you can walk on the bottom so water shoes might be a good idea.

After a long float you come to another dock and boardwalk back to the outpost. I'm not sure how long the walk is, might be a kilometer.

And then the boat ride back.





I had way too much sun today and had to stop and sleep in the car beside the road and couldn't even go out later... a lesson learned.

Am I missing something here? Other than the videos, I don't see any photos, and it seems there should be some?

Is it just me?

I'm not sure why you do not see photos. Maybe a mod can help?
I tried logging right out and I can still see the pics. Can a mod give me some guidance please?
Are the files too large?

works now?

Sorry about you guys not being able to see the pics. Apparently Scott could see them at first but then not, I am not sure why.

I switched all my pics over to photobucket ( what a pile of work) and reposted what I had done so far. Could someone let me know if you can see them now?
