The actual building was beautiful or could be beautiful but our room was extremely dirty (very mouldy and dirty toilets, showers and sheets)and the locks didn't really work. There wasn't any safety box either in the room or at the front desk - you could put your valuables in an envelope, closed with sticky tape, under the counter of the front desk (which we didn't do). There were notices on the doors saying that you should lock all personal items up before leaving your room which didn't give us alot of confidence. But other than that there wasn't alot of choice and it was only a couple of nights.

... of boats. Mostly sail. There were also marinas filled with houseboats. All of these marinas were neat and tidy. Along the shore behind the marinas were parks with lush emerald lawns and paved walking paths. All this on the industrial waterfront. Very surprising indeed.
No sooner had we got the boat tied up and checked in, Patti's nephew Cody called and asked if we were still up for going out to lunch. He works just across ...

Men going around clearing burnt down candles and wax off the floor clearing space for the next batch of candles to be laid out and burnt
Eventually we had to leave and pull ourselves back into the reality of normal Mexican life - not quiet sure how we felt but knowing we had witnessed something very special and sacred.
As I said you really need to experiance this for yourself to understand - ...
