I was offered a chance to go to Isla with my sister in law & niece and stay for free. I had to try and figure out how I was going to do this and keep my job. I only had to call in "sick" one day to spend 3 whole days on Isla. It was SO worth it!
I leave Friday night after work (midnight). Fly out at 6am Sat morning. I spent over an hr at immigration...ugg. Best Day was waiting for me, $34 and everyone on the van was going to ferry, yes!
Ferry - 140 pesos
Walk to Ixchel phase 2 and do the fastest changing into my swimsuit ever. The girls said they would have a spot saved for me on the beach. I was on the beach a little after noon and had Sols waiting for me. I couldnt believe I was here!
My niece, held this little guy for a while, when his owners took a dip.
The sun was intense! Ive never been to Isla in March and I was in the ocean within minutes because of the heat.
We order fish & chicken tacos with guac & pico for lunch from Comonos at Ixchel right on the beach. Daniel took our order and I say hello.
"Back again!?", he says. "Si!", I was here in Dec, but that seems so far away.
There was a gathering on the beach at 6pm in front of our condos for the last Mayan Equinox. We were told to bring fruit or flowers for the ceremony and then offer them by throwing them into the ocean. It was pretty neat.
Then its off to find supper...we decide on El Patio and it was great! I had the shrimp, the girls had chicken fajitas and grilled fish.
Of course we ended the night at Miguels Moonlite. I brought him a framed picture of me and my group at his place the first time we met him.
More to come!
