First time to Mexico

We did not know what to expect. We hoped that it was going to be hot with sunny skies and clear water.

It was warm, sunny and murky water. While this was a bit disappointing, we had an excellent trip. Views like this were incredible

Another Hard Day at the Beach

How to afford a GREAT meal every night

I am an early riser while my wife is not. Every morning I would get up and go for a walk. My route took me past a bakery right at 7:00 when it just opened. A bagful of fresh hot pastry and I was on my way. The next stop was a grocery store and I would buy some juice and fruit. On to the hotel lobby for a couple cups of free coffee. By this time my wife would be getting mobile. A good cheap breakfast.

For lunch we would sit in a bar and when we ordered drinks, we were given nachos and salsa......This was our lunch...free....What ever we saved during the day, we spent on very fancy meals at night. It was great.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cheap, friendly people, very scenic
  • Cons:Not as warm as expected or water as clear as I hoped
  • In a nutshell:Taking the kids someday

    Beautiful Basilica photo & the unusual stone church at Copala. Very enjoyable & informative info about Maz. I just returned from Yucatan & am eager to visit the Pacific Coast cities now. Thx for the virtual tour.

    With my luck I'd end up falling down those stairs...even without cocktails. Great page!
