the que onda restaurant with thatched roof, cute gourd-carved lights and mosquito spray on the tables so you don't get eaten alive while dining. the mosquitos were really bad if you weren't right on the water getting the heavenly sea breeze.
the next 3 pictures are the yal-ku lagoon. it was filled with tons of colorful fish, including some barracuda, rocky caverns and sandy bottoms and fresh water coming up from the underground rivers that mixed with the salt water and gave the effect of oil and water mixing or heat rising off a highway. i'll post more pictures of that.
this beauty was at the wonderful galleria lamanai in akumal. he was gorgeous, fully beaded with beautiful sparkly glass beads--unfortunately a little out of my price range. i'm usually not one for sparkly things but he was gorgeous, i love iguanas.
