The Mexican Riviera - a great place to vacation!!

The computer issue has gratefully resolved and so before I become involved in working outside today here are some pictures from my vacation on the Yucatan Peninsula aka The Mexican Riviera. The hotel staff welcomed us with a glass of champagne and continued during our stay to be helpful and courteous. I felt like a queen with all the attention. We took a tour of the hotel's greenhouse and after hearing about all the ways in which this particular hotel uses "green" technology knew that we had made a good choice and will go there again. The whole family is saving money for another trip to Hacienda Tres Rios.

The food was ever present and delicious, a constant array of delights in which I indulged to my heart's content. We tasted every strange dish, enjoyed ocotopus kebabs, reveled in fresh fruit and were awed by the avacados.

The beds were soft and the pillows plump. The three pools stretched out forever and were a great place to lounge. I loved the beds on the beach, what fun. Went on a foray into the jungle and paddled back down the river to the ocean in a kayak. Took a side trip to the ecopark, Xcaret, http://www.xcaret.com/, where my granddaughter swam with the dolphins, creating lifelong memories.

Didn't want to come home to the freezing temperature lol.. but am grateful that we survived the worst plane ride of my entire life! And now for pictures....

Our Favorite Spot for Breakfast

How about a nap on the beach?

And YES I did rest!!

Ah the beautiful blue ocean!
