OK...so we took the water taxi back from Quimixto to Boca de Tamlatan and stopped by the whiskey distillery. This was fasinating...what great people with such an adventurous spirit. We bought enough Los 2 Compadres Whiskey that we are still driking it. It tastes like tequilla becasue of the yeast that is local...very cool. Free samples and a neat place to visit.
Mismaloya was the following day. Now you know that I am a very positve person, but this was a very trying day. We took the bus there and walked the trail by the ocean. It is a beautiful cove..saw some blue footed boobies that were so close I could have caught one. Because of this board, we had Tony's on our list to eat at, so we were off to Tony's for lunch. We had the seafood plate for 2 and it was great. Then I thought that I would like to go to the zoo and maybe the predator set....I love the movie Predator....so off we went. Now it was hot on this particular day, but my adventerous hubby decided he wanted to hike up to the preditor set....afterall, the sign says 2 miles...not that far....we walked, and walked, and walked..oh wait, another sign...still 2 miles. We started taking pictures of the signs in our heat induced delirium. It was a nice hike, played in the river, took some great pictures, neat butterflies. We finally got there and took a look around, bought a water, and I insisted that we get a taxi back. I can't stress enough how far this hike was in the heat of the day.....
Botanical Gardens was next on the list. It's ok, we ate there and the food was just ok..kind of expensive. There is a good trail that goes around the river, but the bugs are crazy. We had our DEET 30% and still got eaten. I don't think I would recommend this activity again.
Last night of vacation....we went to El Arrayan because the hubby wanted those cricket tacos. I guess I am glad that I tried them....I didn't think the food was great...my soup had a lot of bones in it, which made it diffiucult to eat. I don't mind 1 bone in chicken soup, but multiple is too many.
Don't hate me here....but we did not find the food that awesome in PV....I know we didn't try a lot of places, but the places we did try were not impressive. The best food we had hands down were the fish and shrimp on a stick from the beach guys. Tony's was really good. It may be a regional thing, but the ceviche was not to my liking in PV..tried 6 places and it was consistently more like tuna salad or something.....just not the same as the Yucatan version. We did make it a point on this vacation to always say Si to any beach vendor selling an edible item...that was fun.
I loved our vacation and will be back to PV...but September will be back to Isla Mujeres.
