My recent vacaton to Playa Del Carmen in the Mexican Yucatan involved a fun-filled, acton-packed day of hiking, climbing, and exploring the Mayan ruins of Coba. We biked out to the tallest ruin for the steep, hot climb to the top and a beautiful view.  The weather was hot and humid and slightly overcast with occasional sprinkles.  

After leaving the ruins we went swimming in three different underground cenotes, one of which had a terrifying 35-foot jumping platform into beautiful, crystal clear water.  I was able to get some good GoPro footage of my friends jumping.  Sadly I was so scared that I forgot to turn it on for my own jump!  I was also happy that I had brought my Sea to Summit Dry Daypack along to protect all my valuables from the splashing.  I had such a fun time and was lucky to spend some time with my friends in a beautiful country.
