EXCEED takes a vacation

Friday April 16, 2010
The EXCEED family took a cruise to the Cayman Islands and Mexico.<br /><br />The first port was <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayman_Islands\\">The Cayman Islands</a>. <br /><br />The first stop for us in the Caymans was to first stop in the Caymans was to <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray_City,_Grand_Cayman\\">Stingray City</a> It was as crowded as I have ever seen:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/stingraycity1.jpg\\" alt=\\"Stingray City Crowd\\" /><br /><br />We brought a little inflatable boat so Elektra could participate. She was by far the youngest person that day:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/stingraycity2.jpg\\" alt=\\"Elektra at Stingray City\\" /><br /><br />We did have some feeding time with the Rays. As you can see we are all wearing rash guards to protect from the harsh sun rays:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/stingraycity3.jpg\\" alt=\\"Stingray City Feeding\\" /><br /><br />We then went back to land and took a taxi to the Turtle Farm:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/turtlefarm1.jpg\\" alt=\\"Cayman Island Turtle Farm\\" /><br /><br />We all fell in love with the turtles. It is a neat experience that you actually get to hold these wonderful creatures:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/turtlefarm2.jpg\\" alt=\\"Cayman Island Turtle Farm Kiss\\" /><br /><br />Elektra was even able to get in on the action:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/turtlefarm3.jpg\\" alt=\\"Elektra at the Cayman Island Turtle Farm\\" /><br /><br />The next day we arrived in <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cozumel\\">Cozumel</a>:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/welcomecozumel.jpg\\" alt=\\"Welcome to Cozumel\\" /><br /><br />We then took a ferry to the mainland and then a bus ride to <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulum\\">Tulum</a>:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/tulum.jpg\\" alt=\\"Exceed at Tulum\\" /><br /><br />Tulum has a very interesting story and is worth a read on the link above.<br /><br />After a visit to Tulum we stopped at one of the many <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenote\\">Cenotes</a> for a swim:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/cenote1.jpg\\" alt=\\"Snorkeling the Cenote\\" /><br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/cenote2.jpg\\" alt=\\"Cenote cliff jumping\\" /><br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/cenote3.jpg\\" alt=\\"Elektra at the Cenote\\" /><br /><br /><br />This was a beautiful place in the middle of the jungle. We were able to do some snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. There is also a place to cliff dive. We took it one further and climbed the tree to get a bit higher. Elektra loved swimming in the water here.<br /><br />We had a great time and will definately be back for more adventure. If you go make sure you take along your EXCEED rash guard as the sun is very strong.
