We just spent a week in paradise. As temperatures fell in Calgary and we finally started experiencing winter, we flew to Cancun and enjoyed the sun, sand and heat in the Mayan.
We traveled with some close friends who had 2 kids - a 3 year old like Q, and a 1 year old. Q and J kept each other company - they are the best of friends. They have a total love/hate relationship and as much as they fight and compete, they are lost without each other. After having a shouting match in Tulum in front of a group of tourists, over who was more mad at the other, one lady remarked how they were like a married couple.
As with most all-inclusives, you pray that the resort you're staying at has good food. Really, if the food is good, who cares about anything else. The Moon Palace had the best food, and lots of variety.
Even with the variety, I was drawn to the simplicity of the fried tortilla chips, fresh Mexican sauce and creamy guacamole. I had this at every meal! The Mexican sauce was pico de gaillo with tomatoes, onions, cilantro and lime. I think I got my daily dose of veggies just from this.
The chefs at Moon Palace were kind enough to share a couple of dessert recipes with me. I am excited to share these in upcoming posts.
