Quoted from Wikipedia:

Chetumal (Chactemàal which means: "Place of the red wood" Modern Maya) (coordinates: 18°30′N 88°18′W) is a city on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. It is the capital of the state of Quintana Roo and the municipal seat of the Municipality of Othón P. Blanco. In 2005 it had a population of 136,825 people.

The city is situated on the western side of Chetumal Bay, near the mouth of the Río Hondo. Chetumal is an important port for the region and operates as Mexico's main trading gateway with the neighboring country of Belize. Goods are transported via a road connecting Chetumal with Belize City to the south, and also via coastal merchant ships. Because of its location on the Caribbean coastline, it is vulnerable to tropical cyclones; Hurricane Janet and Hurricane Dean, both Category 5 storms, made landfall near Chetumal in 1955 and 2007 respectively.[1]

Leaving Chetumal we encountered road construction. Note that they make sure you do not drive on the new pavement until it is open by placing rocks on it. Everywhere!!!

Just an example of some jungle flora

I figure if you stand still long enough in this area you will be enveloped by the vines!!!

Now on to a day trip to Belize in Central America!!!
