We rented a golf cart one day and I gave my folks the quickie tour of Isla. I told them "chatter" cost extra but they chose the bargain route, too bad, they missed out on my corny jokes. We visited the turtle farm, saw the floating house, Punta Sur (wow, big changes there, they've finally added a safety wall and a covered seating area), checked out the shell house and ran all over town. The highlight was definitely our stop at Garrafon de Castilla, the small beach club next to the famous Garrafon Park. We didn't even need our snorkels to see the thousands of fish right off shore! We bought some fish food and man oh man, we were surrounded by the little yellow and black striped sergeant majors eating right out of our hands. Garrafon de Castilla is a bargain, only 50 pesos entrance for some fantastic views and great snorkeling fun!
We spent Sunday lazing around on Playa Norte, Max and Grandpa flew their kite, I got pinched on the foot by a crab and my mom and dad got a nice sunburn to memorialize the weekend. Dragging Max out of the ocean to head home was a horror, the kid thought that we could just live on the beach forever and ever. He fell asleep almost immediately on the ferry ride back home, I guess sunshine and snorkel can really tucker a kid out. Tuckered out mom and grandparents too!
Here are a few snaps of our Isla Mujeres getaway.....

We're so fortunate to have my folks here for three whole weeks! Max is on vacation from school for Semana Santa so they are having a ball with him all day long. We're hoping to get out of town again this weekend, Tulum is on our minds, just waiting to hear back from a hotel to see if we can get a reservation, it's a busy busy time of year! I promise to update sooner rather than later, I've been so distracted and having so much fun, sorry for my absence. Hope all my lovely readers are well, saludos de Cancun!
