Back to telling you how I gained the best five pounds of my life...
It started with eating. Out. Everyday. As much food as you wanted. (not a good thing)
We made some friends along the way. Geckos and Iguanas were literally everywhere.
We spent an entire day snorkeling and relaxing (and eating) at an amazing ecological park called Xel Ha ("shell-ha"). Jake was a little fish the whole day. This was the night our Resort told us a Category 2 Hurricane was expected to hit Cancun. I was a little freaked out. It didn't end up hitting, but the power went out a few times and the next day it rained half the day, which was actually beautiful!
This was the bridge we crossed from our room every day. The pool you see here is a lazy river. Yes, we were very lazy.
On Sunday, we actually found a small branch in a town called Puerto Morelos about 10 minutes from our resort. It was unlike anything I have ever experienced. The people were so kind and humble. See that little black sign telling us that this was the church? It was actually a rented house they use to have church in. Cool.
The resort lobby.
We had a carribean fiesta right on the beach one evening and danced the night away to Jakes favorite music: Bachata.
Oh, and we ate some more....
And met some dead people. This was actually pretty cool. Every night at the resort they had a show, and this night was a tribute to MJ. It was so entertaining.
We just layed out at our very own private, white sand beach. No biggie. The even cooler part was that guys would come ask us if we wanted drinks, and I would say, "Yes, one pina colada, no alcohol." And five minutes later I'd be sipping a pina colada. Heaven!
This was probably the most exercise we got, walking down this pier. We went to the city Puerto Morelos and did some bargaining.
Again, we ate.
Our beautiful beach!
Our resort always had activities from volleyball, soccer, water aerobics, yoga, and here you see us kayaking!
Oh, and is that us eating again? Yep. And there's one of my many pina coladas.
Jake was always at one bar or another ordering more drinks. I was so proud of him for using his spanish while we were there. Its so cute when he espeaks espanish.
Just another view of the pool. So amazing. You can see kind of in the middle of this photo, there were full on beds to lay on by the pool. Can you say heaven?
The only bad part was that we both got eaten alive by mexican mosquitos. No clue why they chose us, because nobody else had them. We think its because we were probably the only ones there not drinking alcohol.
And this is what we look like now.
But what a wonderful vacation it was!
