Moving Day!

This morning, we're moving to a new home for the next week. It makes me very sad because it's so dang hard to leave someplace this beautiful! I wonder what it will feel like to come down out of the clouds to sea level! Several have asked where we were staying and I'll tell you now -- Ixchel II in 709! Mark and Donna's beautiful condo! Talk about a place that rocks! It truly is heaven! Here are a few snapshots.

Dining/Living Room Area

The most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in Mexico!

View out the living room window to the east.

View from bedroom onto the wrap around veranda. The outdoor living space alone is larger than any room we've had on Isla!

View from the breakfast table to the east!

Straight on views over Playa Norte!

Ixchel pool.

Fabulous 360 degree views of the island, including sunrise views over the town to the south, and sunset views to the west.

Craig and I agree that Ixchel 709 is truly the most fantastic place we've ever stayed! The views have to be the absolute best on the island! If you're looking for that special place, this is it! Thanks Mark and Donna for a wonderful stay!

In addition to it being moving day, we're renting a golf cart this morning and heading out island. Hopefully, we'll do some snorkeling at Garrafon and maybe lunch at Zama's. I'm anxious to see how the island has changed.

Stay tuned!

Another great batch of photos. have a question--a few blogs back you mentioned a place called Mocambo--where is it? I guess it's new--not on map....would like to try in Jna. ( Have to find a new place since SesoLoco's moved out of town.

Ann, Mocambo is the first dock restaurant in the line headed north from the Puerta Juarez ferry dock. A year or so ago, it was just called Lancheros, but they've added a new palapa roof and upgraded a bit. It's next to (just south) of Miramar.

Thanks for another great report, Beck. The condo certainly is beautiful, and those views are magnificent. Looking forward to part two of your trip!
