When we did our cruise of the Panama Canal in 2013 it was September/October. Naively we thought being that time of the year the weather would be similar to that what we knew in Australia, quite pleasant. Oh how wrong were we. It was hot. UGLY HOT.
You know ugly hot, it’s when it’s that hot sweat trickles into places sweat just shouldn’t be so you wear as little as possible to counteract the trickle. Wearing less however means there’s more on show… as I said, ugly hot.
We arrived in Huatulco, Mexico and not only was it hot, it was humid, the worse possible combination. The only way to extinguish this heat was by way of the super-sized cocktail.
Needless to say not much touring or exploring was achieved on this day. And when the children begged to return to the ship and its air-conditioning, there were NO arguments from either of us… provided we could finish our cocktails first!
