Things I’m Currently Obsessed With: Mexico Edition

by Courtney on February 19, 2012

The Wildlife…there’s what our tour guide calls the “Mexican Lobsters” roaming around all over the place.

Then there’s these little buggers, which Jay tells me are called coatis.

I had never heard of ‘em, but they are definitely interesting, aren’t they?

Our Room…I want to transport this bed back home with me.

And this bathroom. Oh my god, don’t even get me started.

Just check out that shower!

Early Morning Workouts…two for two so far. A quick 20-30 minutes and I’m ready to go!

The Lunchtime Dessert Spread…just amazing.

Fruity Frozen Drinks By The Pool…The “Roadrunner” and the “Chi Chi” are running at a close first and second. Better yet? Calories don’t aren’t counted when you’re on vacation.

Late Night Fire Shows…talk about fantastic entertainment.

It looks like you are having the time of your life! ….I totally had to google ‘coatis’ because I was afraid he was pulling your leg- that is what Sheldon from The Big Bang theory calls, ummmmm, making love. He wasn’t pulling your leg, don’t worry :)

I saw iguanas in Curacao a few months ago and they completely fascinated me! One day, while I was laying on the beach, an iguana ran out from the trees and did its business right in front of a crowd of people!

Keep having an awesome time! *jealous*

OH my goodness. Could you please bring one of those coatis home with you?! They are SO stinkin’ cute!! I want one for a pet.
I totally read at first that Jay said they were called ‘Colitis.’ I was like ‘ohhhhh well isn’t that a funny name for an animal?!’ But then I re-read it. Haha :)

I am viacariously vacationing right now! While the coatis is slight cute (just slightly) beware the chupacabra (the mexican version of big foot except four-foot tall and reptiled like).

Have a great time and a Roadrunner for me!
