Xpu-ha, Mexico ~ Day four

Again, Frank was up first, once I was moving we headed down for breakfast. We had different entrees this morning, I chose chicken chiquiles and Frank had huevos rancheros. After breakfast, we rested in our room until we got the itch to head out to the beach. We had another fun afternoon in the sea. Storms came through, one created a beautiful rainbow, the most distinct one I’ve ever seen. No photos, though, I was having too good of a time in the water to run and grab the camera.

After our swim, Frank returned to the hammock and I went for a walk along the shore.

When I returned I joined Frank for a siesta. We decided we’d have dinner in Akumal. When hunger struck we headed out. We parked near Lol-ha, we walked over to the beach

and then we wandered over to La Cueva del Pesador on the way we saw coconuts growing and pretty flowers.

The chips and salsa at La Cueva del Pesador were delicious. We scoffed those down while we waited for our meal, fajitas and shrimp Vera Cruz style - wrapped in foil and baked with tomato, onion, and pepper. Both were excellent. We asked for additional chips to go, the friendly amigo happily packed a bag for us.

We returned to hotel and requested buckets of ice to chill our Pacificos and then we nuzzled in the hammock. Shortly before the hotel’s restaurant closed for the night we asked for a couple snacks, they delivered pico de gallo and a cheese plate. The pico and chips were muy bueno! We chowed down until we came across habanero. Hot! But oh, so good. After our snack, we returned to the hammock for another evening gazing at the stars.
