the ruins of xpu ha

The day before yesterday we did not do much of any thing just hung around camp. I went to the dentist and had a panic attack and had to leave. So yesterday I had to go back and try again. The girls went to Acumal to swim with the Turtles. I guess they saw lots and many fish it sounded like they had a good time.
I went for a walk down the beach and decided to go in the old resort to see how much it has changed from the last time I was here. From what I could see there is not 1 inch of wire left in this place they have cleaned it out. And now there is a buch of graffiti  all over the place.

It has been 8 to 10 years since it was hit by the storm  and some of it is still standing and not bad shape but other parts are just destroyed. the amount of destruction they did to get the wire out was amazing.

This is one of the biggest property's I have been in for a resort It must have been the place to go to for this area.
Some of the graffiti

They even ripped down the ceilings to get the wire out.

They still left the chandelier there is still wire and light bulbs in it.

The jungle is taking it back I wish I had wore shoes so I could go see a lot more of it. Next time.

See how they smashed the wall to get to wire.

And there is still toilet seats that surprises me half the toilets in Mexico have no seats you would think these would have some value but I guess not.

So thats what I did why the girls were diving with the turtles they took no pictures and refused to blog so you are stuck with me.
When they got back I had to go back to the dentist. Well this time I was prepared I took larazopan started at3.3 and took one every half hour. I got to the dentist I think I fell asleep in his chair really don't remember when we left we had to walk up town to find Lara she was in a coffee shop waiting for us. Well on the way there I found myself laying on the ground I have no idea if i tripped or maybe Brenda pushed I had a scraped arm with a bit of blood and my ribs are hurting but only when I breath so I think I might make it. just have to learn to stop breathing.
If we do anything today I will try to post again.


  1. Hmm, hope you are feeling better today. Should not be falling down, it hurts.

  2. Pretty sad about the resort - it was definitely something once. Ouch - about falling - not so good - probably better that you don't remember going down - it most likely hurt. Too bad no photos of the turtles...

  3. What is with the girls refusing to blog? Brenda used to do it all the time and Lara said she wanted to create her own blog even!!

    1. I agree they both had big ideas but no go. they would have to do something other than facebook i think.

  4. Donna and I stayed at that resort many years ago, It was called the Copa Cabanna then and had everything you could possible think of.

    1. It must have been a beautiful place.
