Yates Family Vacation July 25

By: jade (View Profile)
Date: 8/9/2011

My son said – no more tours. He thought that Villa Kiin was the best place to stay on the island. He loved it there. He saw no reason for any more excursions. What more could you want when you have it all there.
We slept late. I walked to the bank. I found the pitaya fruit that I had been looking for at the public market. I bought 8! Miquel can make pitaya margaritas! We swam and snorkeled in the beautiful clear water.
We ate lunch at Alexia & Giovanny. Our daughter walked over to Roosters and picked up a vegan dish. My son had shrimp and Roaul and I had the Enchiladas Verde. I had the Jamaica juice (from the native hibiscus flower) it was really good.
We girls went back to Hortensia’s. My daughter got this cool pocketbook and some souvenirs. Then we snorkeled and enjoyed the water.

We swam over to the Avalon and walked up and rinsed our feet. A worker asked if we were staying there. I told him I had a few years ago. He didn’t say anything else and we ran to Kings Bath. We ran because that wood was hot and burning our feet. I couldn’t believe I saw a Spotted Eel. It was about 3 feet long. It went into a crevice near the ocean floor and some rocks. I wasn’t afraid because it was swimming away from me! On the return trip to our hotel, I saw a crab in the water. He was pretty cool. Our son didn’t know we were swimming and since he was hungry he walked to Macambo for a repeat of the Mayan Fish.
We girls threw on cover-ups and headed for Buho’s swing bar. (Sorry: no happy hour) We ordered margaritas. I thought they were terrible. The mixer was not good. So we walked to Chimbo’s and enjoyed another drink. My daughter saw the stilt guy from town. She bought a mango flavored cotton candy from a vendor. I had a guitar singer sing us a song. Hector did a great job. The day before, he played for over 30 minutes on the beach. While he was playing, 3 young tourists (Mexican tourists?) were singing their hearts out along with him. Those guys were having such a ball. Seeing this made me happy inside. I just smiled. I knew that would never happen at home. We saw these happy fishermen outside of Seahawk.

We cleaned up and everyone but my son headed for the Sunset Grill for dinner. It was an excellent choice. My husband had been having troubles with the heat in town. The Hildago area was hot especially at the restaurants near Faynes. There was a nice breeze and it was near sunset. We shared the nachos. My daughter had an excellent vegan meal – Crispy tofu. We had the Tamarind margaritas.

After another stroll down Hildago, we went by Miquel’s. I told him that I had asked the kids where they wanted to go on their last night. Their answer was Miquel’s. My son thinks he has the best fries too! Roaul was not feeling too well, so we had an early night.
