Mexico: Choco-Story in Uxmal

A really well done chocolate museum and farm next to Uxmal. We both enjoyed learning about the story of the Cocoa bean and the important role it has been playing over time both in South America and in the rest of the world. Definitely worth a stop.

Mexico: Uxmal

Uxmal and the magnificent Pyramid of the Magician. The site of Uxmal is so expansive that it would take days to really explore and admire it all.

The hotel next door had a great view of the forest and sneaky cheeky monkeys (not pictured). IMG_3352
