Catalonia Playa Maroma

So It’s been a long time ( or at least what feels like a long time ) but I have a plan to get the hell out of the country on Thursday. We have had this trip to mexico planned since it looked like they were opening Mexico and now 3 days away the US numbers are up. US from what I’m seeing seem to think everything is all fine and good “Fuck heads”.

The pool

We did make it into Mexico on American Airlines and the planes had a lot more people on them then I thought would be there. You know airlines profit before safety. All the stress I was feeling or should I say anxiety about making it was gone.

The beach

The resort check in was fast, we had been to this resort before years ago. I didn’t remember to much about the first visit it was so long ago and only a few days. The room we got was one with a ocean view and a private pool. Anytime you have the option get the private pool.

The room pool

We were up on the top floor ( no lift ) and the view was wonderful. The resort only had a few people in it the day we checked in. And it looked like they checked out they next day. We had all the beds next to the pool and most on the pool to ourselves. I did forget how the heat gets to you on the first day so we had to head back to the room during the hottest part of the day.

The pool

The pool is a odd one with a lot of changes in depth up to about 9 foot in some sections. The staff had so little people to serve they got used to what we drank and who we were. Soon as the bar opened at 11 they sent over drinks without us asking. Everytime we wend to get something to eat they had temp scanners and kept a record. The food and service was awesome I hope we can go back soon.

New Years In Mexico

For 3 years now we have been trying to get down to Mexico with some friends to celebrate Sandy’s birthday and new years. This time we got on a plane and flew down here with only a few delays in our flights, most of the time they just cancel it at the last minute

San Carlos, Mexico

This was my first time in this part of Mexico and I never drove over the border before. We rented and B & B with a pool and separate Villas and for a 4 day trip its not a bad place. Some of the people I am just meeting for the first time and I am so bad with names. But they are a fun bunch before and after we are all drunk.

The area is not as “green” as Mexico I am used to and the weather was a tad bit chilly but the town is not so packed with people so that’s a good thing. San Carlos or it seems this part is broken up in sections, stores then some road and then some house’s so It’s not like Cancun where you can just walk from pub to hotel. The two restaurants we did eat were right on the water and very nice. The food was okay, better than American food but just okay for Mexico.

View from our dock

We did get to take a boat ride and see some dolphins in the wild, very had to get a picture at just the right moment. But it was fun and watching the birds dive for fish with a glass of wine can’t be all bad “rite”?
