  4. Fossil sites in Mexico

    Hello fossil-hunters, My family and I might soon go to Mexico on a trip. We are probably going to stay in Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo (Yucatan peninsula). Do any of you know some good nearby fossil sites where we could hunt? Thanks in advance, Max

  6. Yucatan Fossils

    Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all of our Fossil Friends! We took a December getaway trip to Mexico - our annual Yucatan vacation - no fossil hunting, but to my surprise, we did see a fossil sign and rock while doing a pedal-zipline through the canopy at a jungle theme park called Xel-Ha. You can see the fossil sign and a closeup of part of the rock face which has 67 million year old marine fossils - mostly coral and some shells. On previous trips we've seen some spectacular marine fossils on the roofs of caves we explored (mixed in with the bat colonies that live in the caves). Thought you might find this to be a fun and quirky trip report, in keeping with the holidays.
