On the ferry to Paradise in May 2004!
Caribbean Queen pre-Aluxes. That beach just doesn't look the same now with all those palapas.
Sidetrip to Tulum. I was barely walking that day after dining on shrimp tacos for lunch at La Tarraya in PDC the day before. Only bad case of food poisoning I've had in Mexico. Note to self: If banos are filthy, don't eat there!
Craig lunching at Playa Lancheros.
Playa Norte 2004 -- look at that expanse of sand!
Entrance to Paradise
Pelicans on the old Garrafon Hotel dock.
I can't wait to get back to Isla in late June. My seat's booked, but I'm still watching for those summer fare wars to buy Craig's ticket. Right now tickets are double what they have been in the past -- $600 and up! I've booked lodging for a week (you'll have to wait until I've moved for that report since I try to keep my location on the down low), but think I may just wing it for the rest of the trip unless I see some good rates. (I always say that, chicken out, and book in advance.)
