Since we first arrived at Mahahual Sarah had decided that we were taking a complete day off to just lie on the beach and relax. It was a pretty special place to be able to do this the sand was beautiful and the water was an amazing array of blues.
As we were staying right on the beach we didn’t have far to wander to start our day and with the sea within sight we enjoyed some huevos rancheros for breakfast before moving to some loungers just in front of the hostel. It was all set up or relaxing with a waiter to bring you food and drink whenever you needed it.
So in between reading books, taking dips in the perfect ocean and having lunch it was soon 5 o’clock! It was an excellent day of relaxation and we were thoroughly exhausted. We did manage to find some excellent flautas which were prawns with sauce wrapped in a tortilla and deep fried and simply delicious.
Mahahual in general was a great destination, we were very lucky to catch the place when it was quiet as it fills up very quickly when the cruise ships arrive. In fact I think that most of the places rely almost exclusively on the income from the cruises.
For us though, in terms of beach side lifestyle it was great the board walk was lined with restaurants and little gift shops and the restaurants spiller onto the beach where there were tables and chairs or loungers for you to sit on and while the day away. I am not sure what you are meant to do at night though as we struggled to find many places even open for dinner. I am guessing that’s because all their usual customers would be back on the cruise ships.
Either way it was a great find for us and we have thoroughly enjoyed our couple of nights already really wish we had more time for Mexico and more time to enjoy this Caribbean water! Plus did I mention how great every meal has been (and cheap) T
Great spot to have Huevos Rancheros for breakfast.
I guess on another day these might have been full, but we were lucky!
Base camp for the day.
I will never get over the colour of this water
