Honeymoon at Xpu-Ha Palace

Riviera Maya, Mexico

July 25-30, 2004

Back to PHOTO page

After our wedding, we said goodbye to family and friends, and headed to Xpu-Ha ('shpoo-hah') Palace in the Riviera Maya region of Mexico. We took a 45-minute taxi ride from Moon Palace to Xpu-Ha. Once we arrived, the atmosphere was COMPLETELY different from anything we've ever seen! Xpu-Ha is known as an "Eco-Resort" where all rooms and buildings are built to blend into the surrounding jungle. We were surrounded by wildlife such as flamingoes, crocodiles and caymans, iguanas, koatis, deer, turtles, a wide variety of birds, and lots of hermit crabs, too. It was a beautiful place. Leah and I did snorkeling, sea kayaking, and lots of hiking. We hope you enjoy some of the photos we took from our stay at Xpu-Ha.

Since this was also an all-inclusive resort, we also did our share of eating and drinking. My personal favorite was a Banana Monkey (rum, kahlua, pina colada mix, and a fresh banana). Mmm...banana monkeys!
