It's so hard to get on the internet here, Kira's got the card and we just figured out how to "pirate" it from her!
We've done a couple of things so far, booked excursions yesterday to start tomorrow, going to Chankanaab to swim with the Manatees and Snuba, also booked to Tulum and Coba, a 3 Reef Snorkle trip and to Akumal to snorkle with the turtles.
We are artistic and we didn't know it! There's a craft table here at the resort where you can buy ceramic pieces, paint them and then Sebastina takes them home to shellack and fire them. The other day we made a coffee mug, butterfly and candle holder, yesterday we picked them up and they were beautiful! So we decided to each do one more, I did a fish, Alex did a cactus and Kira did a skull. We'll pick them up today.
We actually slept in today so we missed breakfast, boo hoo. Have to wait for lunch down at the beach.
Alex hasn't booked diving yet but he's hoping to get on to the night dive tonight. Kira asked if we could go to the spa, I'll book that for Friday.
Yes, its hot. When I opened the curtains at 9:15 this morning our thermometer already read 28.4C so it's going to be a scorcher.
The restaurants are great, they have 2 a la cartes open plus the late night pizza parlour, the food is great. We're going to book 2 more visits in the next week. The Mexican a la carte the other night was fantastic, they had Filet and seafood and we were well fed.
Last night they had Name that tune at the courtyard, I got 5 right but one of the other guests got more (I guess the alcohol helped him!)
Love this resort, we'll be going to spend the day at the beach again today, we met "Barry" the Baracuda yesterday while snorkelling, he's been here for years apparently, doesn't do anything except scare the guests who don't know he's there. Also saw a small stingray but Alex and Kira saw a much bigger one the other day but I missed him.
Lots of palapas to sit under for shade, lots of lounge chairs at the beach and around the pool. We've only been in the pool once, haven't even been in the quiet pool yet, we don't come to play in the pool, we come for the beach !
Saw an amazing sunset last night, with a huge cruse ship in the background.
That's all for now, will try to get on more frequently but it's hard so snag that pass from you know who !
