Family Week in the Yucatan

In July 2005, we were afforded an exceptional opportunity as new residents to Mexico. We had been befriended by one of the restaurant owners here. Although he lives and works here on the island of Isla Mujeres, he owns a home in Akil, Yucatan. During the summer school break he and his family planned on going there for a week. He graciously invited us to go along.

We jumped at the chance to see how a typical (?) Mexican family lived their day to day life and what life in a small village was like. What follows is my record of this journey. Akil and some other places we visited are highlighted on this map with little red dots. You will probably have to click the picture to see them!
