Friends from the States, Mike and Bonny, flew down in mid-March and were here for 10 days. We spent a couple of days hanging out in Mérida and then headed out for Ek Balaam and Valladolid, staying at the Meson de Marques hotel for one night.
We left Valladolid the next morning and drove to Mahahual, a small town on the Caribbean coast that has a cruise ship pier. We like it when there is not a ship in town. After eating some food at Jaime’s place and buying supplies, we headed a few kilometers north on the beach road to Casa Azucar, promptly named the Sugar Shack by the misses.
We spent three nights there – house was powered by solar and a diesel generator. Generator gave out on the last night, but dinner was already cooked and we had a lantern and candles.
From there we headed to the Tulum beach road for two nights, getting together with additional friends from the States and from Playa del Carmen – at Ziggy’s beach. Very nice day. They have excellent food. That is my partner in the black swimsuit, with Bonny in the hat and Alicia.
