Final Mexico Tidbits

A few more pictures from our trip.

One of the pools

One of my favorites. The Maroma Lemonade. Cranberry juice and lemonade, so refreshing.

Our lovely room!

Outdoor open air shower. It was great to rinse off after spending the days at the beach. There was also an indoor shower.

Super cute towel art!

Extra Vacation Fun

Here are some pictures from the excursions we took while on vacation

ATV and Mini Speed Boats. Jon loved the speed boat. That was enough excitement for me and I opted to skip the ATV portion!

Yal Ku Lagoon

Akumul Bay

Sea turtle at Akumul Bay. We saw 10 turtles. They live peacefully here feeding on the grass.

Playa Del Carmen Beach

Senor Frogs

Jon's favorite quote

Couples sunrise massage on the pier! It was heaven. The breeze, birds chirping, and the waves. I was addicted and actually ended up getting TWO more!!

A Typical Day At Maroma Beach

It all starts with a yummy breakfast. This is one of my favorites. Apple pancakes with banana mousse. MMM.

Then it's off to the beach.

Or, some days we head to the pool!

Mid afternoon it's up to our room to relax on our balcony. Maybe take a snooze.

Enjoy the view

Off to romantic dinners, more yummy food, and entertainment.

Don't forget dessert!

Finally, it's time to hit this nice comfortable bed for a restful nights sleep.

Sounds like a perfect day to me. How about you?

Signing Off For A While

We are leaving tomorrow for Mexico for 7 nights!! It's been stormy and gloomy here in Kansas City the last few days. Can not wait for some sun. I'll be sure to share pictures when I return. I'm most excited about our trip to Akumal Bay to swim with these guys!

Hope everyone has a great week.
