For part 1, 2, and 3.
For our fourth day we also booked a tour with the same company, and after two and a half hours we arrived at our destination. We went to "Xel-ha". This tour was a little more expensive, I think around $107 each, but it included roundtrip transportation, entrance to Xel Ha, and all you can eat and drink in the park, inluding alcohol.
Xel-ha means spring water in mayan language. The place is an ecopark, which I would describe it as a mix of Seaworld and a waterpark, but natural. You can snorkel, dive from a cliff, there are zip lines, there is also a cenote on site, ride bikes in the jungle, etc, and everything is included!

Everywhere you look is beyond beautiful.
I regret not taking many pictures. My waterproof camera uses AA batteries, and I had 2 extra spares with me, and I charged them before leaving but when I put them on the camera the camera wouldn't turn on. I had to buy oldschool alkaline batteries and was I afraid of using the camera too much because it would drain the batteries out.
We could've spent the entire day snorkeling here there are so many colorful fishes.
After we finished snorkeling we took pictures on this ginormous chair and life jacket. The view to the Caribbean ocean is just ♥__________♥
The dolphin swim took up most of our afternoon because they take you to a room, show a video, give instructions, wait until the dolphins are ready, then everyone takes the photos, and then they sell you the pictures. We just had enough time left to shower and eat until they picked up up.
Sadly the day came to an end. I loved the place. It got cloudy by the end of the day, there was a storm coming, so the water was not as turquoise as it was in the morning.
Once they dropped us off at the hotel we went to a little mall to buy souvenirs for the parents. Then we went clubbing. The biggest club there is "Coco Bongo" but my boyfriend didn't want to go there because it's a copy of Las Vegas clubbing scene. You know they have shows and impersonators, that week they had a Michael Jackson impersonator. So we went to the Mandala club instead. The night we arrived this place was packed, but since we went on a Tuesday night it's was rather empty.
Like in all the clubs in Cancun, it's open bar, and can you believe they close until 5 AM!?!?! It's crazy, we left until 4. I had never stayed that late partying.
