Playa Maya Vacation

We have an affection for Playa Maya, it is right on the beach! We'll start with that as the best reason, there are many



Lobster with ginger and scallion in Quincy night before leaving twin lobsters $18.00







Jet Blue been good to us so far, we should be in Playa by 5:00, transfer should be waiting



We got to Cancun on time and thru customs with green light and then waited quite a while for the transfer.

It was hotter than ever, finally find a guy and he gets us to a less crowed spot and we waited some-more. Then finally into a van with a/c to sit in major traffic which we eventually find out there is a huge accident on the highway in the opposite direction. Traffic is backed up for a couple miles going north when they open 2 southbound lanes to go north!!!

Luckily I was able to get a six pack

Most day's are spent right there, it's so easy to do nothing



Breakfast with feet in the sand and walk the beach or swim, I do spend a lot of time in the water











Poncho, good guy

I think many peep's know Arturo, he's a good friend. Always good to spend some time talking, easier without a crowd

Went to Sr. Dan's down next to senor frogs on the pier to watch the Patriots game and Dan was very accommodating. I had bet $100 M at the tequila barrel on the Pats, for fun because I could I bet $100 M and got back $190 M
