Ahhhh, Mexico.

Don’t you just love Mexico? The people are great. They actually want you to have a good time and they have a great attitude – much better than some of the Caribbean islands who barely care whether you’re there or not. We went straight from the boat over to the next pier where we boarded the catamaran to take us to Passion Island. It was a 45 minute ride so its quite a ways. When we got there it was gorgeous!!

White sand a beach that literally stretched for miles. There is no development around it so it was the few little buildings, beach chairs and natural dunes. Very awesome. We came with about 80 people and had the place to ourselves for the first hour or two – it felt almost deserted. 

 Except for the excellent staff who had a fruity drink or cup of beer ready every time we turned around. The ticket was all inclusive so it was all you could drink and all you could eat. The lunch was very good – chicken grilled outside and homemade guacamole with chips was our favorite but they had salad and fruit and fish and lots of other stuff. Even when the next tender showed with more people there were still less than 150 total and lots of beach so it was the least crowded beach I’ve ever been on – and a great value for $70.
There was also lots of shade which I really liked so I didn’t get too toasted. I hopped in the water several times and there was a light breeze so it was really nice – reminded me of Hawaii with the cool water and constant breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. 

Once back on the boat we took a long nap and then had dinner with Trina and Eric again. We are looking forward to tomorrow as we have a very active excursion planned!
