La Isla walkabout in the evening posted by on January 28, 2015

A few weeks ago we ate dinner at the La Elephante Restaurant in La Isla. Afterwards we went for a short walkabout to see what was new in the newly remodled high end section of the complex.

 

Suzie and Tom enjoying our dinner.

Many of the highest end retail stores have taken space in the complex

We really enjoyed all the eye candy in their display windows

 

Maybe if we save for another 25 years they would let us at least walk in and browse?

 

This is more our speed

 

Remember the movie “The Devil Wears Prada”?

 

 

Swimwear perhaps?

 

This store has everything to expensively satisfy your most decedent tastes.

It was very nice December weather and we enjoyed out dinner and walkabout. Be sure to visit La Isla the next time your in Cancun.

A day trip to Akumal posted by on July 10, 2014

We gather together a few friends and drove to Akumal for a day trip. We like going to their beach because you can snorkel the bay just by walking into it from the beach. It is a great spot to view the sea turtles and stingrays in their native habitat as you’ll see in the video below. We had a great time and if you ever get the chance don’t pass up the opportunity to visit and stay in Akumal.

I suggest that you click on the little gear icon and set the resolution to 720 pr 1080 to view the video in HD (high definition)
