Cancun, Mexico

I have only been to Mexico once.  And that was to Cancun which is a resort beach area on the Yucatan Peninsula.  So I suspect not particularly the real Mexico.  But I enjoyed it although it was expensive.

Onion rings

The food was fantastic.  The shopping malls were filled with jewellery stores and knock off bag shops – which did mean I had some doubts about the jewellery!

Hotel Cancun

The temperature was warm, the hotel pool cool with a swim up bar.  Just a purely hedonistic escape which is what I needed at that time.

If I'd known that the meaning of Cancun was "nest of snakes" I probably wouldn't have gone there – so it is just as well I didn't!

  1. I didn't know that was what Cancun translated to either! Ugh.

    Aside from that, the photos really captured the beauty of your vacation spot. Love the blue of that water!

  2. I've been to Puerto Vallarta, almost drowned from undertow, never going back. Ugh on the Cancun translation. That would have freaked me out. But your pics are pretty.


Your comments are most welcome. Cheers
