Playa Mujeres-Cancun, Mexico (Vacation)

I debated taking a metal detector on my vacation to Playa Mujeres Cancun Mexico, but opted to pack up the Excalibur II and see if it could learn to speak Spanish.



As relaxation kept me pre-occupied, I waited until the last day of my vacation to break out the Excalibur II. I spent a little less than 4 hours playing around in about 3 foot of clear water. The bottom was surprising clean, and most finds were of interest.

Surprisingly enough, most of my finds were American coins, not that of the local currency.



I recovered three rings during that run, two of them were Tungsten, and one 14kt with 9 Diamonds.



Checked with the Resort, and was unsuccessful at finding a report of the ring being reported lost.

No telling how long it had been in the sand, but it now has a new home in Texas. Now wishing I would have started detecting on day 1.

Minelab had just recently provided me with this replacement Excalibur II, and it worked great.















After a good cleaning and polishing.

  1. Fantastic results… I almost always take my Surf PI Dual Field or Beach Hunter ID with me vacationing. I understand the excaliber is a good water machine also…. Personally, I am looking for the ‘perfect’ water machine that never needs to go ‘back to the shop’ and is great for underwater searches. Unfortunately, none are made YET.
