While on the various boats for tours, we saw lots of seals looking for food from the boats. They were so friendly. We saw a whole bunch of pelicans sitting on all the boats in the small marina. Some slept with their long beaks across their backs. The Mexicans call these birds Mexican Chickens. We laughed so hard. The kids had a great time snorkeling. Later that day we got in the water boat then transferred to another boat then another to get on the boat for our para sailing. The kids were excited. What a great time they had. The boat bumped up and down like crazy and the kids said that while up in the para sail, they felt so calm and the world so quiet. It was a wonderful last day. I could go back again anytime.
The rocks on the pacific side where the various resorts are looked to be made like Flintstone rocks. They don't look real. They look light and fluffly but they are real and were here for millions of years.
We saw the resorts where Jennifer Aniston, Oprah and others go. They either walk on the pacific ocean side or at a more private resort further back on the way the airport. We loved the cactus plants and the mountains.
The staff at the Villa del Palmar was some of the best. They are so helpful, professional and will assist with any needs. They plugged my camera in when I needed it charged because I didn't bring a computer. They were awesome in every way. I bless the maids because cleaning up after someone day in and day out must be tiring but they did a fantastic job every time.
The food at the resort was excellent and we could get food anytime. If you have the all inclusive, which we did, we enjoyed our meals. Sometimes the wait was way too long and we did have to complain. The Food Supervisor felt so bad she sent us up a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and drizzled chocolate around the plate. The kids both ate the plate!! It was nice of her to do this. During dinner, she would come over to see if everything was great for us.
There was a resort bus that took you over to the other resort which we could swim as well. It was a fabulous trip and we didn't want to come home but more vacations will come. Enjoy the pictures me,
