We arrived early to Cancun
. The hostel that we were staying at didn't have the room ready or clean but allowed us to check in anyway. To give them time to clean the room we just changed into our bathing suits and threw all our bags in one of the closets, and got a taxi and headed to one of the beaches. It's the first time I had seen ocean water other than that of the Gulf of Mexico on the coast of Texas. It was spectacular. It was as blue as you see on television and in all the travel brochures and magazines. We spent hours in the cool water and regardless of how deep it got I could always see my feet. My fear of evil sea creatures were non existent because I could see what I was swimming into. After that we went back to the hostel and we still wonder if they cleaned the room with beer and alcohol because that what the room reeked of. We deciced that we needed to go somewhere to ring in the new year and went to a restaurant called pericos. It was a little expensive but well worth the price. I belive it was $95 us dollars. Two free alcoholic drinks and a 4 course meal. All the entertainment I could ever want. The food was excellent. The conga lines and mariachis were fun. We saw Reba Mcentire the country singer. What are the odds.
