I am going sightseeing at The Tablescaper's on Thursday evening, won't you join me?
We went to Cancun, Mexico several years ago. And I cannot wait to go back.
Tip: Have your cell phone switched to International before you go. You can do that for a 30 day period.. It's a great way to "keep in touch"!
It was our first trip and we picked "familiar" as a place to stay. The Marriott Casa Magna. I would stay there again. The service was impeccable, the room wonderful. It helped to make our stay as fabulous as it was.
We ate well!
Lorenzillo's. Omg this was fabulous. There is a sister restaurant in Cabo also. We had wonderful service, amazing food and ambiance.
Not only was the food wonderful, but the seating on the water was perfect.
One of the walls on the walkway out was lined with plates. It really was a very cool effect.
On one of our walks, We came across this structure.
What is it?
A diving school. They can enter the water from the interior. Pretty cool.
Here is the view out of our room. January is a wonderful time to come. Warm, but not steamy. Not overrun with tourists so that the beaches are not packed and neither are the sights and restaurants.
We spent quite a bit of downtime. Right here on the Beach. See the empty chairs.. yep, that is how I like it.
La Isla cantina right on the beach. The. best. margaritas. EVER!! No doubt.
Recipe: 1 shot Grand Marnier; 2 shots Tequila, 1 shot Triple Sec. Put ice in a glass, add the shots and pass the mix over the glass. I think their goal is to let as little as possible of the mix enter the alcohol. Be ware. That is all I'm sayin!
Walking out from the hotel to the beach.. Boy that water looks alive, doesn't it?
I can also recommend La Destileria as a fabulous p'ace to eat. It really was a dining experience. The big copper vat in the background is their own Tequila still.
They had traveling Mariachis who visited most of the tables if you wanted. Not pushy at all.
Mr. CJ got a little bit of sun. Only himself to blame. Sunscreen is meant to be lathered on with care, not left in the tube!
So much fun.. It's all in the sombero. yep, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
A sweet love song. I'm all over that.
What to see:
Chichen Itza - old Mayan ruin.
Tulum, Cozumel are towns close by and worth the trip.
Deep sea fishing and snorkeling are also fabulous in this area.
Isla Mujeres is 8 miles from the shores of Cancun. OMG. Go go go...
And on a good day, you can see Cuba, distance between the two shores is 90 miles.
Do you want to visit Cuba?
