Really like the mask you bought, i love the masks in Mexico !

Really enjoyed reading it
So glad you enjoyed my trip report! It's the most complete one I've ever done....I took notes everyday, which helped a lot. Someday I need to post a photo of the wall/s where I have my Mexican masks. To be honest, my Mexico room (family room) creeps a lot of people out with all the devil masks and skeletons! (Catrinas)

OMG.....that was the most amazing trip report I have ever read! Sitting inside on a cold, Sunday afternoon with snow and ice coming down outside, this was the most pleasant afternoon in a long time!! Thank you so much for taking the time for posting this. Love the many beautiful pictures and all the details....wow....must have taken a long time to write. We now have some new places to add to our bucket list thanks to you.

It's just a few days over 2 years since I wrote this trip report, which now has in excess of 30,000 views. I hope a few of you who read the report have been encouraged to try some other destinations in Mexico! There are many really interesting places just waiting to be discovered!

Post Hotel Brisas del Mar is Now Hotel Aura del Mar

For those of you contemplating a trip to Zihuatanejo, and possibly staying at Hotel Brisas del Mar, this hotel has had a name change......probably to do away with the confusion caused by the hotel with a similar name over in Ixtapa. Hotel Brisas del Mar is now HOTEL AURA DEL MAR. It's the same gorgeous boutique hotel. The website indicates that breakfast is now included in the room price.

Thumbs up

muchas gracias for such an extensive and enlightening report. amazing experiences and pics of such real things that beg to be explored and experienced. we have been considering options and places to go, as even though we love the mayan riviera, it is increasingly harder to find unique experiences and things to see and do. your report is simply amazing and gives such a perspective on the real experience of culture and people.....bravo bravo

At one time, we really loved the Mayan Riviera as well, but it's become too commercial and also pretty expensive. There are so many other places in Mexico to enjoy that better represent the culture of Mexico. Hope that you get to visit some of these places that we enjoyed!

I hope that you all have enjoyed my trip report along with the beautiful photos that once went along with it. Unfortunately, Mike and I decided to pull the plug on the hosting company we were using due to service issues, so my photos are no longer available....

What an amazing trip report even without the photos ! Thank you so much for the time and effort. As much as I love Playa, Cozumel and Isla Mujeres, you've encouraged me to keep visiting new areas of Mexico too !
