Mexico: Cancún's beaches

Day 22

Today was my last day in Central America...sniff sniff!

After our night BPM partying, we were in the mood for a big breakfast.  We headed back to 100% natural for an amazing - and relatively healthy - feast.

I started with a health juice: carrot, cucumber, beetroot and apple.
Then we split a 'Suzy's Cold Oats' with walnuts, sunflower seeds, apple, banana, raisins and cinnamon.
Plus pancakes with pecan, apple and cinnamon.

With a fruit salad on the side...which I piled into my portion of oats.

It was delicious and took us a while to work our way through the tasty food mountain.
I was glad we'd eaten lots though because next up was an epic mess!!

Under (mis-)advise we caught a taxi to Cancún airport, planning to leave my bag there before my evening flight back to the UK.  Only to learn that (despite the website saying otherwise) there was no luggage storage.

A (misinformed) airport worker then told us to get a taxi to a hotel near the lookout where I could leave my bag before hitting the beach - wrong!  The five-star all-inclusive hotel looked at me like I was mad!

Finally we got a third taxi to Cancún centre where we found some storage lockers in a supermarket carpark - but I needed to take my whole (carefully packed!) bag apart to squeeze the contents into two tiny cubes!


Aaargh...finally we made it.  And rewarded ourselves with a Starbucks...


....before hitting the BEEEE-YOU-TI-FUL beach.


As much fun as we were having, we couldn't beat these guys!
I definitely need to work on my 'jumping face'!

And another...



Isn't that water just ridiculously amazing?!
 



We were so delighted to have completed our disastrous journey and to be rewarded with such a gorgeous beach.  We played around in the water and sand like kids!


Then we took a little wander around Cancún centre...


...picking an American-style place for lunch.  The whole area was very 'american' so it seemed only appropriate.



A final holiday indulgence of burger and fries!

Chicken Fajita Salad
Cancun style steak sandwich
Followed by ice cream...


...and a last little beach chill-out.


Before heading back to the airport for my journey home.  And another amazing holiday drew to an end. #sadface
