February 7, 2014 (Five Foto Friday)

Friday, February 7, 2014

I have been MIA for the last week, but with good reason and even better fotos - We were in Mexico!  We were there for four days for a wedding and had a blast. Not much to recap since we pretty much sat on the beach, ate, floated in the ocean, celebrated and played a little bit of volleyball.  Also was the perfect time of year to bask in the 75 degree sun; we were able to get away from freezing cold weather. The resort was Mahekal Beach Resort a semi-inclusive (2 meals a day) in Playa Del Carmen.

Our Palapa

This was our Palapa, we were on the bottom level. Every room has it's own porch with two hammocks.  So relaxing! And the fountain out front provided some nice white noise while  we slept.   

Ceremony Site

View of the wedding ceremony site on the beach. 

Sorry for the poor  quality of the photo, but here we are ready for the wedding.  Note my beach hair.  This was tame.  When I woke up in the mornings my hair looked like Monica when Friends was in Barbados.

Mahekal Pool

The cocktail hour was by the pool, which looked like this during sunset.  Check out the dolphin they had swimming around in there too!  Just kidding, that 3D fish is actually painted on the bottom, pretty cool effect.

 Last but not least, a view of the turquoise water and blue skies of Mexico!  And, you see Cozumel off in the distance in this one (well the cruise ships parked there anyway).

A Shariously amazing vacation!

We were there for the first time in Dec. and thought it was amazing. We had the best time and can't wait to return.

Hi I am also looking into having my wedding here, but i have been warned about construction, how bad is it really?

Shari said...

Debbi - There was no major construction going on while we were there. There was one small project where it looked like they were replacing some water or drainage pipes but it was in an area that was out of the way and completely unobtrusive. Maybe previous construction projects are complete.
