A two hour drive south from the Cancun airport on highway 307 (the only road) transports travelers to a true Mexican Oasis. Originally popular because of its Mayan coastal ruins (a post classical period settlement) the destination provides relaxing eco-friedly retreats. A 9km stretch of boutique and chic cabanas and hotels attract visitors from around the globe.
On the first night of my stay at Casa de Miel, the eco-chic resort and spa, I settled in on the deck of the restaurant to take in the view. The sun does not set on the Gulf of Mexico since the water is to the east, but that does not take away from the beauty and magic of the moment. Sipping my margarita, I, along with my friends for the evening; the white, soft sands, the swaying palm trees from the refreshing breeze, and the bright moon all enjoyed the spectacle.
I hope you do too. Happy Sunset Sunday.
Stay Adventurous, Craig
