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.

After a long, sun-filled afternoon spent on the beach, we all decided there was only one way to come back and recuperate… With some frozen drinks, of course!
