Sun May 20 00:00:00 MDT 2012 - 2012May - An Early Spring Gardening

2012: We have a very nice spring this year. So we thought of giving in, and started our backyard gardening early. And with that, it also meant taking out all the pond pumps and lights from storage and setting them up. This time, we also added and planted more ground covering plants in rock pockets around the pond - this should make nice transitions between rock spaces...

 

Sun May 13 00:00:00 MDT 2012 - 05/13/2012 - Puerto Morelos: Beach Walks and Activities

Cancun is one of our favorite Caribbean destinations. What’s so good about Cancun is that it features not only some of the best beaches in the Caribbean but also boasts a privileged location, giving you the chance to hop around many other interesting places, such as Mayan ruins, national marine parks, and many more.

The quite town of Puerto Morelos, away from the Cancun crowd, about 20minutes from Cancun Airport. A beachfront paradise, Puerto Morelos is your official gate to the Riviera Maya. This town is located in the state of Quinatna Roo on the Yucatan Peninsula, about 22 miles South of Cancun and halfway to Playa del Carmen.

Puerto Morelos is still a fishing village but it has also become a resort, snorkeling and diving destination. This town is clearly the best of both worlds, you’ll get a quiet time away from the crowds and the noise, but it also features all the tourist amenities you could possibly need.


El Cid Marina & Spa Resort: We always enjoy our stays here at this Resort. As club members, we get to enjoy lots of complimentary amenities and treatments - from spas, use of any beach equipment, kayaking, sailboarding, surfboards, sailboating, to a catamaran.

This is our granddaughter's first travel with us, and her first outside home. She is a natural! But one thing we know for sure -- she loves the breeze at the beach!

The New Kid in the Block: this kid loves the water!

This is our granddaughter's first travel with us, and her first outside home. She is a natural and probably enjoyed it too! But one thing we know for sure -- she loves the breeze at the beach and she loves the water!

Fri May 11 00:00:00 MDT 2012 - 05/11/2012 - Suite Times

Being an El Cid Club Member, we had the opportunity to book a huge fully appointed ocean-front 3 bedroom suite furnished with a big living room, a dining area, a kitchen, private balconies, and an outdoor jacuzzi.

Throughly enjoyed all the comfort, amenities, and the full service we had during our stay. The 24-hour room service was great. Our minibars were fully stocked all the time. Often times, we had an early breakfast delivered to our room but still ended up visiting the restaurant for another breakfast. And, who would not love that! I blame it on the hot weather!

Thu May 10 00:00:00 MDT 2012 - 05/10/2012 - Snorkeling - National Reef Park

May 10: We took a snorkeling trip aboard a huge catamaran to a national park reef just off the town of Puerto Morelos, compliments to our El Cid Resort club membership.

The fishing town of Puerto Morelos is a popular place for snorkelers and scuba divers. It's just about 20minutes from our resort. In 1968, the reef in front of Puerto Morelos town become a protected national park. This protected National Marine Park is part of the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef system in the world and the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The reef is only 550 yards offshore, the closest point along the coast of Quintana Roo, and its protected status allows for a great opportunity to view fantastic display of marine life. The National Park required a small entrance fee which companies will collect on top of their cost. Only accredited guides are allowed on the reef and life jackets are mandatory to prevent unintentional damage to the reef. We were given wristbands to wear to show park wardens that the entrance fee was paid.
