After five days of doing nothing but laying on the beach, we decided to head down to the center of Cancun to check it out. We rode the bus and it was super cheap and super easy.

I've always known that Cancun isn't 'real Mexico' and is very Americanized and caters to tourists. So I shouldn't have been surprised to see Starbucks. I got a little more excited than I probably should have.
Thank God for Starbucks.
We looked around the mall for a bit, and then went to the 'flea market' which is basically a bunch of little shops where the guys try to sell you a bunch of stuff you don't need at really high prices. You are expected to barter and they are pretty ruthless. Yes, we bought some stuff. :)
Then, like the tourists we are, we had to stop by Señor Frogs.
Lunch by the lagoon.
After lunch we headed back to our room. Once again, we were impressed with the towel art that greeted us when we walked into our room.
The swans even had a little veil and hat. :)
Then, you guessed it, it was back to the pool and beach chairs!
