Sister and sister's first Isla trip-day 1

By: AmyMN (View Profile)
Date: 3/17/2007

My sister and I left Minneapolis in a rather large snowstorm the morning of March 2nd. Our flight to Cancun left about 30 minutes late, but was otherwise uneventful. Nothing that I have read could've prepared me for the Cancun airport. We had booked a transfer with Best Day, thank goodness, or I don't know what we would've ended up paying for. It seemed very confusing. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

We left the airport at around 5pm, and didn't arrive at Grand Puerto until almost 7pm. I guess traffic was bad-we were driving in the ditch, on the shoulder, rubbing mirrors with buses-quite exciting. My sister pointed out about an hour into our drive that the "hey-put some gas in me please" light was on...luckily we made it without stopping for gas. I was so hungry-I was chowing on everything I could find in my carry-on. The ferry ride was pretty rough-my sister almost fell off the bench going over one swell. Finally, we arrived on Isla! I had studied and studied my map, and was planning on taking our bags to Bucaneros myself, but decided to have a guy with a cart take them (we really overpacked) We quickly checked in and explored our room. It was very cute, fair sized, huge closet. We didn't have a balcony, but I did hang out the window and get some pictures. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

After freshening up, we were starving, and my sister really wanted a cheeseburger. I used my handy map to navigate us to Jax for burgers and a bucket of beer.

We then made the first of many stops at the gelato place for some really delicious gelato. Then it was off to bed before 10:00 pm.
