While we were having dinner during our Caribbean cruise, AJ ordered a Strawberry bisque for her appetizer. After realizing that her plate and her cold soup are both pink, she asked me to take a picture and post it for Pink Saturday. They learn early in life, don't they? As you can see my top was also in the palest pink.
And now for Sightseeing Saturday, I am taking you to our second port of call when we went on our cruise, which was Cozumel, Mexico. I have been there several times but this is the first time we discovered Chankanaab. It was a fun resort and we will definitely go back there.
It was quite a distance to walk from where the ship was docked so we paid the yellow tricycle guy to take us to the port. The port is so lush with many tropical and colorful plants.
We were taken to a museum that tells a lot of stories about Mexican culture. Shown below are handicrafts that are so detailed and colorful.
I had a fresh coconut juice and it was so good and refreshing especially in that very hot weather.
We also had some Mexican food in the resort restaurant. Did you notice that their diet coke is labeled "light" instead of "diet".
Outside the museum were models of Mexican pyramids and churches. Below was our tour guide "Arturo" who spoke excellent English.
After the museum, we were taken to Chankanaab.
Simply breathtaking from the moment we entered the resort.
They had dolphins, shallow water for smaller kids, swimming pools and deeper water for snorkeling. They also have a garden that we did not have a chance to see due to lack of time.
Look at the pretty color of the water. AJ was enjoying it too.
So tropical with all the nipa huts.
It rained so hard for about 10 minutes. For a while there, we thought we wouldn't be able to snorkel but then the rain stopped and the sun started shining again, so off we went towards the sea.
I gave the underwater camera to AJ and she took all these pictures except for hers, which John took. I am too chicken to go in deeper water. There is a statue of Jesus at the bottom of the sea, about 20 ft. down.
I hope you enjoyed sightseeing with us. Thanks for coming along.
Thanks to our hostesses for today. Be sure you visit them to see more interesting posts.
