I went on this trip fully expecting to be without Internet, but because Rachel and Kevin have unlimited service with T-Mobile, I was able to use their phones as a "hot spot", and got fairly good service most of the time. Also, there's a little open-air restaurant/bar on the beach not far from Brooke. She's friends with the proprietors, and we went there in the evenings to watch the sun set. They had excellent wi-fi, so we took advantage of that at times during our stay.

I realize people who live near a large body of water probably aren't impressed by the sound of waves at sunset, but it's a rare event for some of us land-lubbers, so we all took videos.
I'm not doing a day-by-day story of our stay in Mexico, just putting together random happy times. Pueblo Del Maiz was a real hit with all of us. Brooke hadn't even seen it before, since she doesn't spend money on touristy things. We were in a group by ourselves for the tour, learning how Mayans lived; so with no huge crowd waiting in line, our 45-minute tour stretched to at least an hour-and-a-half. You can find an article about the place HERE, or read the reviews on Tripadvisor. Any of our group would recommend it.

We made chocolate, ate honey made by tiny bees with no sting, and other interesting stuff. Brooke and Rachel made tortillas.
