On the Mend

   I still have a sore throat and cough, but the laryngitis cleared up and I'm feeling quite a bit better today.

Sara and Tommy are staying at the Bahia Principe Tulum.   Today is already their third day here, so we set a date to go visit them this morning.  It turns out it costs $90 USD per person to get past the gates!   Well, that wasn't going to happen, so after much to do, Gerry was allowed to go in to talk to Sara while I was held hostage at the Hacienda near the front gates.   

While I waited for Gerry to return from the lobby I ran across this little cutie.   It was about twice the size of my big toe.

Either it had no fear, was frozen in fear, or thought if he didn't move I wouldn't see him.  lol.    It let me come right up to him.   I even stomped about two inches away from him to see if he would move.  Nope.

We decided to rent Sara and Tommy a car tomorrow instead of trying to visit at their resort, it is significantly cheaper.    We reserved a car from Thrifty Car Rental in Play del Carmen, and they will drop it off at the airport in Cancun when they go home.

The plan is for us to grab the car, then go pick them up and bring them to Xpu Ha to hang out on our beach for the day.    Sara told Gerry that their beach is rocky, so it will be a nice change for them.   Xpu Ha beach is very popular with the resort excursions......I wonder how much they charge to let them in?  

At the entrance to our road, the owners ex-wife has a rope blockade and they collect money for parking.    People visiting campers don't have to pay regardless.

That was about enough activity for me for the day.   Gerry took a walk on the beach, but the only pictures he took were of 3 different topless women.    haha, since I'm blogging and not him...those pictures will not make the world wide web.     Geepers, you'd think he was the paparazzi!


  1. Uh oh. You guys will count as guests at ours though. Right? Is it just cause they went all inclusive?

  2. Yes, we will be staying at the resort with you guys, and yes it is because they went with an all inclusive. I am sure glad we decided to go the condo route.
