Video Clips of Paradise

Wednesday, 3 February 2010
Kingsley and I agree our trip to Mexico was one of the best vacations we've ever had.  The Gran Melia Resort was luxurious with impecable service.  Our weather was sunny and warm and the cultural aspects of Tulum and La Isla Mujeres were memorable.  Throughout the week, I took a few video clips so you could experience some of the things we did. 

Music is an important part of the Mexican culture and our first night at Los Rancheros we enjoyed a Mariachi Band.

On La Isla Mujeres, we ate at a lovely resturant with a cheesy name, Cocktaileria.  The place is directly on the water and they serve fresh fish and lobsters the fishermen catch daily.  We even watched some of them mend their nets under the palm trees on the white sand.  Here's a sampling of the live music from the restaurant.

The Gran Melia has "green" decor thoughout with vines hanging from every floor.  The main lobby is peaceful and naturesque with Koi ponds dotting the floor.

One evening Kingsley and I went to the luxury shopping center on the lagoon (Cancun is like Vegas when it comes to Consumerism).  We took a walk along the water and he spotted a tiny jelly fish as well as other wildlife in the water.  I love that he admires living things as much as I do.

Our trip to La Isla Mujeres was filled with new experiences (we rented a scooter) and fascinating discoveries such as the Mayan altar dedicated to Ixchel (goddess of fertility).
