For our last night in Cancun, my sis and I decided we wanted to go out and have a nice dinner. We went to Plaza Caracol (the Coco Bongo area), it’s where the touristy restaurants and shops are located. Carlos n Charlie seemed to be a fun restaurant so we decided to have dinner there. We had no expectations at all so it was like “whatever” this looks decent. Personally, I did not like it at all! 5 minutes after we got our seats, the waiters are too much! Their “in your face” kind of serving is too much for me. Someone will offer tequila jello/shots and she is so persistent. I hated that I caved in to her pressure.Lol! The place was super loud, so we had a hard time talking to each other. So if you want a quiet conversation during dinner, do not go to this one. The food was decent, our server recommended some food (she always recommend the most expensive dish too) and I caved in. Her choices was decent, but it wasn’t the best I had. After dinner we just walked around, window shopping and checked their night life (but we didn’t go to any shows).
Here’s the part 2 of my Cancun trip with my little sister. We spent a day at the Mayan Ruins (Chichen Itza) on a group tour. Honestly, I didn’t really join the group listening to our tour guide because it was so hot that day and I started having a headache and I just had to stay in the shade of a tree for most of the time. I still have to google and read about the history of the Mayan Ruins/Chichen Itza because all I know is that it’s part of the 7 wonders of the world. The whole place was pretty amazing and I’m so glad we did the tour. It was such a LONG day(13 hours total to do the tour) but worth it in my opinion. It’s not everyday we get the chance to see one of the 7 wonders of the world. Sis and I also checked out downtown Cancun (reminded us of the Philippines), swam at IkKil Cenote park, had dinner at Carlos and Charlie (so pricey!!) and the Mextreme restaurant (because we wanted some authentic mexican food,it didn’t disappoint!), we played tourists at the Coco Bongo Area, and the rest of the time we spent soaking in the sun and enjoying the beach. Their beach was really amazing, the water had a beautiful array of blue shades. We are so grateful that we got to do this, we know that not all are given the chance to experience Cancun. Thank you, Lord! Warning Ahead: Picture Overload! Enjoy:)
I know it’s been a while since my last post! It’s just been a little busy here so my little blog was “sacrificed”. But the major reason is that I just got back from Cancun with my younger sister,Rosell, last Sunday morning so I’m still (sort of) in vacation mode. I really had no plans to join her on her Mexico vacation but when she asked if I wanted to join her (she already paid for the hotel) and I mentioned it to Zach, he happily said YES! I was expecting a different answer especially since we plan to go somewhere next month, but he thought it was a great opportunity to spend some time with my sister and a free trip to Cancun (why not!),although it’s not totally free because my plane tickets were not cheap:(… But anyways, this is my first time to visit Cancun (I’ve been to Cozumel and Playa del Carmen) I really liked it, they make it easy for the tourists. I observed that they really clean their roads, maintain the tropical ambiance (Hotel Zone). You can tell that Tourism is their main livelihood. I can totally see myself visiting Cancun again, but I’ll have to bring my husband this time. Thanks to my sis for the Cancun treat!
I will make a part 2 of our trip because (still so many pictures to share) and we visited the Mayan Ruins,swam in Ik Kil (Cenote), dinner at the Coco Bongo area! I took so many pictures and wish I can upload everything here! Hope you enjoyed the part 1 of our vacation pictures!
