Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Cancun































































Just got back from an amazing trip!! We had so much fun and loved, loved, loved the beaches and blue, blue colors of the Caribbean.
I headed there on Friday by myself because Lee had church obligations for two more days. I met our good friends Toni and Howard at the Cancun airport and then we went to our resort the Gran Mayan Riviera. It was a great resort! Unbelievable landscaping-green, lush and complete with flamingos, tons of great pools and great food. We were total slugs in the cooking department and got a little food for breakfasts but pretty much ate out the rest of the time. While there we hung out at the fabulous pools, the guys played golf twice and we got massages and we played cards each night. By the way, Toni and I ended up the big champs overall in Hand and Foot (great card game)! We were cold one night and put our resort robes on over our clothes one night and won. The next night, Lee and Howard stole the robes and won. It went back and forth till the final defeat by Honorable Pam and Honorable Toni!! Fun times.

One day we went into Playa del Carmen and took the ferry to Cozumel where we rented the Silver Bullet (our beat up VW beetle) and toured the island and ate some delicious food.

Another day we went on an LDS tour to Chichen Itza (Mayan ruins), swam in a cenote and went and ate at a Mexican buffet. It was a really hot day but so interesting and fun.

After seven days we headed to Cancun for another two nights, 3 days and it was amazingly beautiful!! I couldn't believe how gorgeous the white sand and blue ocean was. We got upgraded to a Master Suite and the view from our room was completely breathtaking! I hope I got a good picture of it because it was amazing. I could look at that view forever. The city was very Americanized, like Vegas, but the hotel we stayed at Fiesta Americana Coral Reef and the beach made it unforgettable. It was an amazingly fun, beautiful trip. I would totally return. The only problem today is that I keep almost saying hola to everyone I see!
