Where I stayed
Tai and Pierre's Beautiful Condo (where we got spoiled)
After a very spacey four hours of people watching in the airport, we were finally on our way to MEH HE CO! It was a short plane ride, and made even shorter by the unbelievable excitement as we flew over the turquoise water and white sand. After customs, and anticipating the arrival of our bags we walked out of the sliding doors and were greeted by a smiling, golden face and fresh Mexican fruit! Yum! The air was humid and sticky, but smelled sweet and inviting. As we drove the hour to Puerto Aventuras we ate mango, kiwi, papaya, banana, and felt immediately comfortable in Tai's presence. We were suprised to drive into a gated complex, filled with fancy hotels, vacation homes, golf course, and Dolphins(which was our first stop). A delirious swim in the pool right outside her condo, and delicious dinner made for a good first night, that led to our Mexican blanketed princess beds:)
We woke up in the lap of luxury, and spent the morning eating fruit, granola, yogurt, and jumped in the pool to wake us up. The afternoon we went with Tai into town (Playa Del Carmen). We walked around the touristy plaza and felt thankful our home base will be in the Jungle. We ate a deleciousssoooo Mexican lunch, bought some groceries. Then we were off to see the jungle Palapa
On our way back to the Condo, we stopped off at the beach for our first quick dip in the warm, crystal clear water. We followed a small crowd through the sand to discover they were carrying baby turtles that had just hatched and were about to be released. We watched as the tiny tiny bodies found comfort in scooting and flapping through the sand to mama Ocean. It was a magical experience as the sun set, the moon was nearly full and the pink clouds hovered as they too watched the turtles take their first strokes in the water. We returned home to another relaxing night filled with delightful food and laughter as we crawled into our beds in disbelief that
was our first day here, for its felt its been a week already!
We woke up to another beautiful, sunny morning, and with the taste of sweet papaya on our tongue and the moist air tingling our skin we are ready to welcome a new day!
We send all of our love back home, and will be carrying you with us every step of this journey.
Te Amo! Xx
