Back with a relaxing Playa trip

Bare with me, I haven't written a trip report in a few years. Over the past few years a lot has changed for me but some things remain the same.

I convinced my girlfriend that Playa is the place to be...I mean its where the sun hits you on the outside and the beer keeps you cool. The Tequila hits you like a warm breeze watching the sunrise or howling at the moon. (Gonna miss you Mike )

We fly out of ORD early so we are on the road by 3am to the park and fly and then on to the airport on time. The plus side is we get to the beach by 1pm and we get to see the sun come up of the Midwest.

Day 1:


She loved the flash at 3:30am.



...and we are off!



We caught the ADO down to Playa and walked the excruciating 120ft to the hotel.







Hotel Casa Meliassa is a great little hotel about 60ft from the beach...this did not suck.



The hotel was in good shape, the receptionist did not speak much English which worked because we don't speak much Spanish. We figured it out and got to our room....and we were pleasantly surprised.





If this bed could talk...well, it would speak Spanish and I wouldn't understand a word of it.





To be continued....

Don't quit now.
You have to finish before your next trip.
