Viva Mexico

Hanging out at Villa Pescadores in Tulum, Mexico

With two kids we often have to divide and conquer.  So when I took Arjun to the room for showering and changing after the pool, I expected Devang and Asha to follow suit soon. But when they didn’t show after over an hour I got a little worried.  

I went out to investigate and found them napping in a palapa by the pool.  It was so funny to see them totally passed out.  I shouldn’t have been surprised since these huts are so awesome; I could totally use one in my back yard.  And having just said this I can hear my grandma rolling her eyes and saying that they napped in a “palapa” all the time…it was called being poor!

Fun in the sun continues here in Playa del Carmen.  The resort staff seems to be an expert in making cappuccinos and I can’t tell you how many I am having a day; I am definitely addicted.  Also, one forgets how good oreos taste until they show up in the mini bar. There is definitely over eating going on here.

Beside eating, some of the other activites we indulged in included taking the tour of the ruins in Tulum which is under 30 minuts from here.  Seeing the world outside the resort was a needed distraction and it gave us a better idea on where to go and explore in the time that we have left.  After the ruins, we ended up having lunch at a small restaurant (Villa Pescadores) right on the beach in Tulum.  It was the best tacos I’ve had so far and might I add that all the sand around our table kept the kids busy. This lunch has been my most favorite time so far on this vacation.

Hope you are having a good week too wherever you are!
