When I started posting on this Isla trip, I was going to just do brief little reports with maybe 10-15 pictures each. Well, after uploading about 35 photos on this post, I guess that thought went by the wayside, so here’s just another photo-heavy report from me.
One of my first stops on this trip was the Mango Cafe. It had been a couple years since I had been there and I’ve heard so many great things about it, I had to try it again. I’m glad I did.
The group sitting at the table next to me recommended the West Indies Tacos…so that’s what I went with. OMG…they were absolutely delicious! The peanut coconut sauce was a wonderful complement. The dish comes with three large tacos which is actually too much for one person. So, if you’re going with someone else, you can definitely split one dish. I got through half of the first taco and realized I hadn’t taken a picture, so I had to reorganize my plate for a photo. That’s what happens when you’re digging into good food.
One of my quests on this trip was to find the Chuuk Kay restaurant. I drove my golf cart all over the place going towards Punta Sur but didn’t find it. On the way back, I stopped at Oscar’s and took this picture of the marina in the back. Unique use of the canoe or kayak or whatever that is…
Stopped by Jax one evening to sit on the upper level. I’m not a big Jax fan. I use them for their internet, but they’re a little too Americanized for me. I always get something to eat if I use their internet. Their nachos were okay…a little too cheesy.
This is the one in my living room. Yeah, it’s kind of grisly, but he didn’t have much of a selection when I picked this one, and I do like the colors. When I was robbed last December and the police came to dust for fingerprints, I saw one of the officers take a double-take at this wall hanging. He probably thought I was some weird demonic witch-like person who likes to eat hearts. Haha!
On a final note, he was giving out little free samples which I thought was a really sweet touch. My son gave me this little jewelry case last Mother’s Day, and I have never been able to figure out what to put in the photo frame. Sergio solved that problem. Talk about perfect, right?
