Mexico: Day 1 - Cancun

Another November: another international adventure! After a great Thanksgiving in Seattle with friends, Jon and I were off again to explore a new place. We woke up on Friday morning to a call from an actual person at American telling us that our first flight from SEA to DFW was delayed, which would mean a missed connection in Dallas. Luckily, American was able to put us on an Alaska Air flight to DFW that would allow us to make our second flight to Cancun. The adventure was on!

7 hours later our plane landed in Cancun. We could feel the warm weather as soon as we stepped off the plane; it was a nice change from the winter we had left behind back in Seattle. We breezed through customs and made our way to pick up our rental car. The process was relatively painless, except for the long sales pitch we got while waiting for our car to be cleaned. Soon, though, we had the keys to our red Dodge Attitude and were off to the city.

We made a few wrong turns on our way into Cancun, but Jon's excellent navigation got us close to our hotel pretty easily. Our guide book had the incorrect location for the hotel, so we spent a little while driving around the neighborhood before finding the place and checking in. After a quick walk to a nice taco dinner, it was time for bed!
