One day last week, my Spanish teacher and I took the short 20 minute trip down to Puerto Aventuras for a day of classes away from the classroom.
The water is shallow and crystal clear. Perfect for snorkeling around the small patches of reefs.
I took this with my iPhone and edited this with Instagram. I could live here forever.
A perfect place to get away from the party atmosphere of PdC.
The sea lions. They swam and played tag like best friends.
And kissed a little like lovers.
This photo does not do this justice. The manta ray was enormous! 5-6 feet wide!
A family playing with and feeding the manatees.
My Spanish teacher wants to be reincarnated as a manatee. She says she will be lazy, ugly, and eat and swim all day long. I guess there could be worse things....
It is said that sailors coming across the pond from Europe thought manatees were mermaids. It shows you the desperation of the sailors during a 5 month stretch without women. To me they look less like mermaids and more like a hippopotamus!!
Here he is eating soggy lettuce... YUM!
