Carefree in Costa Maya

April 28, 2011

First off, WOW!

My Heavenly Honduras post was featured on today’s Freshly Pressed and I am extremely honored. Little ol’ me and beautiful Honduras – we work well together. Guess this means I’m going to have to visit more often.

Thank you, WordPress – for my 15 minutes of fame!

And now we’re onto the 3rd stop on our cruise – Costa Maya, Mexico. We decided not to book an excursion for this stop – we originally had a deep-sea fishing tour planned, but it was a little on the expensive side, and we couldn’t keep the fish. Plus, I live in Florida, so it’s not like we don’t already do this on a weekly basis.

I’m glad we decided to do our own thing. As soon as we stepped onto the Port, ManFriend and I started off with massages on the beach. Sadly, this is the first massage I have ever had. I know – pretty pathetic. It was nice, and so relaxing. Then, our group of friends rented 2 sand buggies to explore the island. THIS WAS UNFORGETTABLE. You get to see the island not many people venture out to visit – and I am so glad we did.

The island of Costa Maya was fairly untouched, and it appears that only recently did they start building it up. The place is gorgeous. The water had about 5 different shades of blue, the sand was soft and pure, and the people there were extra-friendly.

Costa Maya was easily my favorite stop on our cruise.

We rode around on the sand buggies until there was nowhere else to go – which ended up being the perfect place to stop. There was a tiny tiki bar, some lounge chairs, and the beach. You don’t need anything else…
