Our last day was bitter sweet. I think by day 7 we were ready to go home…we were water logged and sun burnt-despite reapplying sunscreen a million times….so we decided to end the trip with an adventure into Playa Del Carmen!
Playa del Carmen is a cute little area that originally was a fishing town and was used for passenger ferry service for those going to Cozumel’s….but due to tourism, it has been transformed into a cute little town that has tons of culture. I wish we had so much more time to explore the cute little nooks and crannies of the street. Mallory bartered for the first time for a pink bracelet, there was music, restaurants and tons of stops….and lots and lots of color-my favorite! 🙂
Incase you missed the first three posts:
Mexico: Day 1-3 | dolphins, gelato and Michael Jackson
Mexico: Day 4 | Tulum, Snorkeling and Bar Swings
Mexico: Day 5 | long walks on the beach
Such bright happy colors! I loved the little shopping carts bade out of wooden crates. Every corner you turned shop owners were standing outside of their stores trying to get you to come inside. Some of them were quite clever! This guys saw me taking photos, so he got my attention and then said “Voque” in his Mexican accent and started posing for me! tee he he!! There was so much artwork along the streets. Photographers and painters would set up their little areas in the middle of the streets. Mexico has some very talented artists, that’s for sure! I wish it wouldn’t be wierd to have Carribean Colored house in small town USA…I’d be that house on the street with all the bright colors! haha! We had an amazing time in Mexico. I’m so happy Mallory got to experience the culture and that we got to spend lots of quality time together as a family. I’m not sure where we’ll go next year but I know know that Santorini, Greece is on my list of places I will go when I reach my 100 pound weight loss goal. I know that will be amazing!!
