The trip started off a little rough for Kevin and myself. Our plane from Phoenix to Cancun had mechanical problems, so they moved us to a different plane at a different gate. We were told we would still be leaving close to on time. There were many announcements saying another 15 minutes. It ended up we left over two hours late. We were not happy with how American Airlines handled this. Just tell us the truth right off the bat. Here was the view of Cancun from the plane.
The kids ended up waiting for us for about an hour at the airport in Cancun. Our representative from Apple Vacations was there waiting, and we were on a van to the resort pretty quickly.
Here was our first view of the resort. Korey and Cathryn posing at the sign.
The resort has five restaurants on site. We ate at the Mexican one our first and last night. It was definitely our favorite.
We also ate at the Italian, Romantic, Japanese and buffet restaurants. The food was very good at all of them. One thing I did notice was that Mexican bakery seems to be rather dry. I wonder if anyone else has had this experience.
Kevin, Eric and I had never eaten at a Japanese restaurant. The guys weren't sure they would like the food, but were willing to give it a try. We all were very pleased with the experience. We tried the sushi, and were not that impressed; but at least we tried it. The chef was hilarious and put on quite a show for us. The main meal he cooked was fried rice and a mixture of vegetables with beef, chicken, shrimp and salmon. It was quite good. Here he is fooling around with fire. He was quite funny. I love the look on his face.
Here he is cooking some of our food.
His antics were as much fun as eating the food.
The resort was beautifully landscaped. We asked someone to take a family picture of us by the Mexico sculpture.
More to come tomorrow!
