Dulce Vida: I

February 25, 2013
While visiting Xpu-ha, Mexico our goal was to unwind. Our only plans were to relax on the beach and enjoy local eats. It was a great success. We spent a great deal of time in our palapa reading, listening to music and drinking cerveza while the ocean breeze kept us cool.

When we felt adventurous we'd run into the warm caribbean sea and play in the waves for hours.

Our slice of Paradise - Al Cielo

We'd work up a hunger and we'd drive to Playa Del Carmen or Puerto Aventuras for dinner. We enjoyed meals at our favorites like La Cueva Del Chango and El Fogon. We also found delicious Italian at Massimo. It was quite odd to order Italian dishes in Spanish. I never thought I'd enjoy Italian in Mexico, but we did. So much so we ate there twice. Once to enjoy pasta and again to sample their pizza. Both were excellent! And One lazy night we stayed at the hotel and enjoyed a wonderful meal.

La Cueva del Chango: Bean Soup, Chicken Chilaquiles and Sopes

your pictures are always fantastic..beautiful and inspiring. I believe you guys were in Mexico last year too? I haven't read the details yet....just admired the pictures so far...ahh, sun, sand, drinks.

Aw, thanks! We were last in Mexico December 2010. So, it was just over two years between trips. We hope to make it a yearly vacation. No other trip recharges the batteries quite like it.

It looks like paradise, if there is such a thing. Sun, sand, a warm ocean. Boy time flies....I hadn't realized it was 2010. Thanks again for sharing with us.
