We arrived Monday, Nov 15th. Flight out of O'Hare uneventful but had to go thru the body-scanner. Arrived in Maz on-time. Purchased a cab ride ticket right outside customs and proceeded to get a cab. Time- share sharks right there and even tried to refund our ticket to go with them. No-way. Arrived at El-Cid! Room not ready so upgraded to a suite that over looks the el-moro pool and beach. Beautiful and very clean. Weather a little cooler than we are used to for this time a year but we are getting tanned. Occupancy very low. Restaurants, vendors, pulmonia drivers very concerned. we have never seen it like this. Alot of shops closed down. Very sad. Safety-not a concern. People are very friendly just like before. The only remarkable thing to report is two Americans or Canadians fighting over a parking spot outside Heather's place one morning. Imagine that. First night dinner at La Cueva de Leon. Very good. Had the coconut shrimp and beef mediallions. Bill $34 American dollars with a couple of cerveza's' and margarita's. Second night dinner at La Regional. It was okay but their mararita's are one of the best so far this trip. Third night at Te Amour Lucy's. Very good. I got the pork shank which could fed a family of 5 and husband had the ribeye which was excellent. Their rice and salad out of this world. Fourth night we went to Deigo's. Love the place. Had shared ribs and grilled shrimp in chile sauce=out of this world. Very busy. Very attentive waiters. We'll be going back. Last night, we went to the Seafarer at Costa Bonita. Very nice but very expensive. Weekend is here and el cid has more people. alot of locals came here on Friday. Hope business picks up for everyone. Cost for a pulmonia ride from el-cid to centro running 60 to 70 pesos one-way. Time-share sharks still jumping out of cars and vans. We were looking at the closed El-Faro and got accousted one day. Any-one with any information about El-Faro closing please let me know. That beach is beautiful. Can see the beach from el-cid marina. Would love to stay there if they re-open ever. Having a great time. We'll update again.
