Mexico Part 3: My throwback to my Mexico trip wouldn’t be complete without another picture of Octopus!
This carpaccio de pulpo from Indigo Beach Club in Playa del Carmen looks out of this world doesn’t it? Especially with the pineapple pieces and a little spicy kick from the sauce. So much yum! Lunch with a beach view is probably one of my favorite pastimes.
What’s fun about the beach in Playa del Carmen is it takes you on adventures. After our visit to the beach club, we took ourselves on a leisurely stroll along the sand until we ended up, sort of by accident, at the ferry terminal to Cozumel. Visiting the island hadn’t been in our plans for the day, but since we were at the ferry and it was leaving in 15 minutes, why not?
In Cozumel, we sipped on margaritas at a cantina along the waterfront, watched the last cruise ship take off, and researched restaurants to visit. Our choice: Kondesa. Their lovely garden setting combined with perfectly cooked seafood made for a special evening!
Although… that doesn’t mean we didn’t have to run back to the ferry 😂 The last ferry was scheduled to leave around 10pm and I think we made it there with one minute to spare.
A trip to the Yucatan wouldn’t be complete without visiting a cenote and that we did! My last pictures are of Cenote Azul, which are a quick taxi ride from Playa del Carmen. Cenotes are natural pools filled with fresh water and are of course, great for swimming! It was fun spending a few hours there and swimming with a few fish as well!
I bet you want to visit Mexico now! I know I definitely want to go back soon!
