Mexico, Day 2

May 16th, 2010...

We woke up fairly early. The sun rises really early here. It was broad daylight at 6:00 AM. We went to La Cascada, the outdoor restaurant at the resort we stayed at. The food there was some of the best food we had during the trip! It was refreshing that a few of the waitresses didn't speak English, because we had learned some Spanish before our trip and we wanted to test it out.

After breakfast, we slathered on the sunscreen... I slathered it on at least every hour while we were out in the sun during the full vacation and my amazingly easy-to-burn skin did not get a sunburn. Be vigilant! We headed back down to the beach -- walking once again. The walk was about 30 minutes, but worth it to avoid the darn taxis.

We went on a Snorkel tour by "Oceanus," which was definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me. The staff is hilarious and entertaining, constantly topping up your cocktails and making the open bar more than worth the money you pay for the trip! They provide life jackets, snorkeling gear, and lots of entertainment (not organized entertainment, just being friendly and funny in general). They took our camera, and I thought "oh crap, we're not allowed to take our own photos..." Then they ushered my hubby beside me and proceeded to take our picture with my camera, haha. Awesome! Thank you guys! 

Anyway, the snorkeling was awesome. They even threw chips into the water to encourage the fish to swim around me, which was amazing. I bought a camera before the trip -- a waterproof one by pentax -- and it was well worth it!

After the snorkel tour, we hung around the Marina for a while then headed on over to the pirate ship cruise -- the Buccaneer Queen. It was entertaining, but I think it would have been better if our daughter was with us, since some of the entertainment seemed more geared towards children. Then again... Another open bar.

We walked home and were absolutely pooped by the end of this day. We stopped by a small market to purchase some food essentials (milk, cereal, etc.) for our hotel room... Oh, and a pair of sunglasses, since I fell on my bum while tipsy in the marina, and one of the lenses of my sunglasses fell off into a pile of large boulders never to be seen again. :(
