We will be back to Xmach Dos someday before too long, and it will mainly be due to the unending hospitality shown by Michelle and Hugo. The best thing about it for us, was the feeling of comradery, like when you go on a camping trip with family and you end up in an unexpectadly lovely place. The food was really good, especially the morning coffee which was always out by 7am. I can't tell you how much that means to me. The dinners where really late sometimes, like 9pm, but since lunch is served later too, that works for most people. We had a ton of fun playing coconut bocce ball and dancing to reggae with people we happened to meet there. They even had a basket of sunblock and bug spray, that you could use and novels to swap in the cabanas. We loved the mosquito netting, all the driftwood touches and the hammocks. Only suggestion, build a cabana with a small frig and cook station and rent it for more, so someone like me, who loves to cook local foods, can do so. And fix the leaky double kayak. I am not saying the place is perfect, but for someone that realizes that paradise is not always so, they will get a kick out of this place. Also, we know they can't do anything about all the trash on the beach surrounding them, and they keep their area spotless, but I wish that someone could...I guess it comes in on the currents from other areas of Mexico. I hope to God that it doesn't come from cruise ships as has been said. We are going to research that and see what we can do.
