We intended on contacting Capt. Tony for a trip to Isla Contoy, but it didn’t happen early in the week and by the end of the week, the weather was not ideal. But we enjoyed doing a whole lot of nothing but relaxing on our balcony and the beach and eating good food!
We also intended on stopping by the Hog Family get together, but it was on Sunday – the first full day we were there. I guess we imbibed too much early in the day and 3:00 came and went. We always end up sun burned the first day, no matter how much sunscreen we apply and re-apply. A combination of too much sun and too many foo foo drinks made us pretty useless by 3. I think that was right around siesta time. However, we did see them out on the porch at Casa Porlamar and at the beach across from their casa throughout the week.
Didn’t experience much nightlife, we were usually back at Ixchel by 10 or 11 and in bed by 12. Maybe on another trip without my son we’ll experience that side of things. We were up and out early most days and the sun and cervasa takes its toll. Or maybe we’re just getting old. We did have some partiers next to us towards the end of the week and I was woke up at 3 am annoyed, another sign I’m getting old I guess! I just turned on the tv to drowned out their noise and fell back asleep quickly enough.
Overall, we had a great week and cannot wait to go back! Hopefully we can make this an annual trip. We’re headed to Nuevo Vallarta in November, a first also. We’ve been to the Cancun area 4 times now, so it will be interesting to compare the 2 places. I have a strong feeling that Cancun / Isla will win hands down – if for nothing but the beautiful turquoise water I could stare at all day and be content.
THE ONLY SUNRISE I WAS AWAKE FOR!
