1/31/2024: After our trip to the cenotes, we walked over to the beach to walk around. Then, we went to "Support the Cuban people" by getting some mediocre pizza and drinks from a food truck.

2/1/2024: We continued our "Support for the Cuban people" by having breakfast at our casa particular. This breakfast, they had a passion fruit! After breakfast, we took a collectivo to Cienfuegos, though we ended up not having to share.
