Riviera Maya Recap...Time to Say Goodbye

With Saturday as our last day, we chose to spend it relaxing & enjoying our beautiful beach. I'd been told before we traveled that the beach at our hotel was one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, I don't have to visit the otheres to agree. Our stretch of sand couldn't have been more perfect.

Some rundown fishing boats abandoned on shore...

For lunch our last day we walked down to a beach bar near our resort...such fun times!
This is definitely another story for another time, but let me just say that I'm terrified of sailboats because of a bad experience when I was a little girl. One of the activities at our resort was a hobie cat ride with a guide. Hubby wanted to do this & finally on the last day I agreed to go along for the ride. It wasn't quite a sailboat, but I'll save conquering that complete fear for another day, another trip.
Our guide was fantastic & even though I had a white-knuckle grip on the ropes, I actually did have quite a bit of fun.

I have to admit...a sail in the wind is such beautiful sight!
Also in honor of our last day in paradise, we decided to head back to Akumal for a nice dinner. We decided on La Lunita & had a wonderful, romantic dinner to cap off our trip.

I couldn't resist the perfect picture

One last perfect sunset...

and one last cheesy self-portrait!
As I've said before, I couldn't have hardly asked for a better vacation. We had an incredible time for a pretty small budget & still managed to have some wonderful experiences.
Goodbye...Catalonia Royal Tulum...
Whew...and I'm finally finished. Now it's time for another trip, see you all next week!
