I live in Manaus, wich stays in the middle of Amazon Rain Forest, so we don't have sea; but, in the other hand, we live by the biggest river in the world: Amazonas.

I don't live near the sea but the beach is just far about 50 km from my house. And sometimes my family spend 2 days to go to the beach to have the rest, usually at the weekend. on the first day, we usually swim, sunbathe, built sandcastles, flew kites, and eat a lot of seafood. In the morning on the next day, we get up early to stroll along the beach, breathe in the fresh sea air, and enjoy the sunrise across the water. Beaches are always the best places to be, and a vacation by the beach can help me regain energy and give me an unforgettable experience.

I´m afraid not. Instead of enjoy the beach, people from here (Yucatán, Mexico) prefer to go to "Cenotes".
Cenotes means a deep natural well or sinkhole, especially in Central America, formed by the collapse of surface limestone that exposes ground water underneath, and sometimes used by the ancient Mayans for sacrificial offerings.

No, I don't but my husband was born and grew up near the sea. He's madly in love with the sea and talks a lot about those years. I wish I had a house near the sea where I can go now and then to renew my energy.
