"We are feeling a bit like locals"

A travel blog entry by pawelek

Between our last blog and today, so much has happened, that it would take a book to describe, so for now some quick highlights since our official arrival on December 5, 2013, as not to bore.
We were ready to complete the purchase of Xoco's restaurant here in town, after a struggle of 3 1/2 months to get all the legal paperwork, documents, permits, licenses and more from the previous landlord, current one, previous and current ...

... to which I thought you looked like a white Australian with tattoos? It seemed like he was doing us some really good deals, although as I said he was a good salesmen with the gift for talking so he could have been ripping us off, but he told us many times he liked us and we are his friends and he will give us the best deal, we were talking with him for sometime before agreeing to anything and he did drop his prices many times ...

... a pretty sight. We love our room. It's really good. There's loads of space. We can arrange our things nice and orderly and it's really cool. The man makes good towel art. Like today we had a turtle. It was very excellent. We also really like the wildlife here. Every day we see iguanas, coatimundi and agoutis wandering around. We saw a tortoise the other day which was well good. I'd like to be a tortoise. We are having fun : ...

... make this place unique.

I have seen a half dozen different species of birds, from hawks to ducks to pelicans. There's a turtle pond with tiny turtles. Giant seabirds, with wingspans close to four feet, flew by as we sat at the beach today. The land is rich with life, and they've plunked hotels in the middle of it, complete with golf courses and all the tourist stuff you could imagine.

It all feels a bit exploitative. We went to the town of ...

    I stayed here for 8 nights for my 30th Birthday trip! It was a great experience, although we did end up going to the Riu Tequila after the hotel slowed down for the night! The pool was fantastic, very big, there were only a couple of times that it got crowded. It is a nice 15-20 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen (5th Avenue shopping and nightlife). The resort is in a guarded residential community with the entrance 2 minutes from 5th Avenue.
