Jan 24, 2013 - Costa Maya, Mexico ... our fourth Port of Call

Our final port call in the Caribbean is Costa Maya, Mexico. This modern "resort" was established primarily for the cruise industry. It is a short stop for most cruise lines and basically is a small grouping of stores, bars and restaurants to service the cruise ships ... a stop-off between the U.S. and Cancun and other Central American ports of call of the cruise industry. You get the feeling there is cruise ship company money that has built this port. There is no local community to visit ... only the port and two small communities...

Jan 21, 2013 - Cozumel Mexico ... our first Port of Call

Our first Port of Call was on the largest island in Mexico, Cozumel. It has become a cruise destination for many ... three ships in port today. Lots of activities to choose from ... we decided on a Mexican Cuisine Cooking Class (with unlimited drinks) ... pictures will document. Our instructor is a noted chef in the area ... who did a wonderful job along with lots of humor and good cooking tips. Appetizer, main course and dessert were made by each of the 20-25 people in the class. It was a hoot ... and a good learning experience for cooks...

Jan 9, 2013 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Jan 6 - 9, 2013

It’s hard to keep track of the days, never mind the time. We haven’t worn a watch since we left Canada, and man it’s hard to keep track of time. Jan 7th we met up with the Osborne’s and their friends, in Playa del Carmen. We had lunch there with them at the Tequila Barrel, before going our own way. We did a small shopping splurge at Walmart before heading for the bus station. We hopped on the local ADO bus line, which dropped us off at the highway, just a couple of miles from the coastal town of Puerto Morelos. It cost us 26 pesos each...

Jan 5, 2013 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Jan 1 - 5, 2013

Life in Puerto Morelos is simple, and slow. We wake up to the chirping of the birds outside our window, and sometimes the squawking of the 2 parrots who live here at Villas Claritas. They put on a continental breakfast here, and we saunter down to have coffee and treats. After breakfast we usually walk to town and back, sometimes on different routes, just to keep up the exercise. A swim in the pool, snorkel in the ocean (for Turk), read a book…..it’s all good. We have met up with Ruth & Denis quite a few times for some refreshments. Turkey...

Dec 31, 2012 - NUEVO ANOS - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Dec 26 - 31, 2012

We spent the next week sun tanning, castle building, swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, fishing, and touring the town for new Mexican cuisine to try. The past week went by way too fast for all of us, and pretty soon we were putting the kids in a taxi for the Cancun airport. They had a 20 minute cab ride, followed by a 5 hour plane ride. Apparently all went well for all of them, other than arriving in snowy Winnipeg. We miss them already, but life goes on, right? New Years Eve we met up with Ruth & Denis and their 2 Grandaughters. They made...

Dec 25, 2012 - FELIZ NAVIDAD - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Dec 19 - 25, 2012

Wow, where has the time gone? Crystal and her daughter (our Grandaughter) arrived in Puerto Morelos on Dec 20th. We were still in the Bed & Breakfast at Villas Claritas for another 2 nights. We got reacquainted with our Grandaughter, showed them around the town, and ate at traditional Mexican restaurants. Dec 21st came and went. We celebrated NOT the end of the world, but the end of an era and the start of a new era. We wanted to be close to the Mayans (just in case) lol. We moved out of our Bed & Breakfast on Dec 22nd and over into a...

Dec 18, 2012 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Today was a good day to wind down. We ate our breakfast in the courtyard, where they served a variety of fruit, cereals, toast, yogurt, granola & coffee. A perfect start to the day! We basically walked the town, down both streets and the beach as well. The beach is beautiful, and the water is quite warm. We had a quick sandwich by the pier for lunch with Augusto, and then kept walking. Supper was at a Uruguay restaurant, and was also superb!

Dec 17, 2012 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Up and at ‘em early this morning, for our 7 am flight to Mexico. The first leg of our trip was San Antonio to Mexico City, and after only an hour and a half, the second leg was Mexico City to Cancun. We are staying at a Bed & Breakfast in Puerto Morelos for 5 days, and included in that was an airport pick-up. We settled in to our Bed & Breakfast “Casa Clarita” and walked into town while it was still light out. We had a traditional Mexican supper of Nachos Grande, Quesadilla & beer, of course with Narcisse and Julio. We picked up some beer...

Nov 30, 2012 - Day at Sea

Well, cruise is almost over. Now we have a full day at sea to cruise back to Florida. This was "formal night". It is not so formal anymore, just about 50% of the men even wearing a suit. Here are some pictures of our dinner companions we had every night. John and Suzy are our leaders and travel agent (Suzy).

Nov 29, 2012 - Costa Maya, Mexico

At Costa Maya we took a bus tour to Kohunlich which are Mayan Ruins. It was a long day as the bus ride was rather long. We had a great guide. He was Mayan and I could understand him very well. We could not have asked for a better guide. One of the nice things about touring Kohunlich was that we were the only people at the ruins other than workers doing restoration work. When the Mayan were there this was a huge city about 20 miles by 20 miles. Now it is just a few hundred acres, all the rest is under the jungle. The thing that made these...
