Chips, salsa, guacamole…and a mask.

By TravelGirl --

Ah, 90 degrees, white sand, turquoise water, blue skies, fresh tortilla chips, salsa, guacamole. That’s the Mexican Caribbean I know, and where we’ve been for four days now. To have a little bit of fun, we decided to snap a photo of me wearing a mask while on the beach (think Speidi in Mexico a few days ago as they strolled romantically along the beach...except they were SERIOUS about wearing masks. Hahahaha!). The minute we started to put them on, people around us started laughing. Of course, we told them we were just going to wear the masks for photos, but conversation ensued about the paranoia that has been created surrounding the H1N1 flu and how everyone agreed that this week is the BEST time to travel to Mexico.

Lazy, lazy, lazy days. Isn’t that what we all want and deserve every now and then? Today was another lazy day – Cinco de Drinko in the U.S. or just May 5, 2009 in Playa del Carmen. What seems phenomenal is that we moseyed our way down to the beach around 10:45 a.m. and had our pick of palapas and lounge chairs. No need to slither to the beach at 7 a.m. to save spots since there are empty spots everywhere! We plopped our towels and books down, and beached ourselves for the next 7 hours only taking breaks to visit the pool’s swim-up bar, body surf in the 80 degree Caribbean water, partake in a Taco Fiesta, or cool down with “Vacation Tang” (a concoction of rum and mixer for anyone who wants to save a few bucks each day).

Other than the fact that the day must come to an end…does it get any better?
