December Beach Day in Cancun

The past few months, Cancun has been beaten up by ridiculous amounts of rain. We managed to escape a hurricane yet again in 2013, but we had to deal with several weeks worth of significant street flooding. Now that I’m working from home, I don’t get out nearly as much as I’d like to because it’s just not worth it to leave the house most days. Today, however, was different.

After being stuck indoors Sunday through Tuesday, I smiled when I woke up to a bright blue sky this morning. Jorge and I decided it would be the perfect chance to go out and explore the Hotel Zone on my lunch break. And it was.

We went to Chili’s at Plaza Forum… not the most creative choice, but Surfin’ Burrito was closed for the day and Chili’s is one of the only Cancun restaurants with an ocean view. This was the view from my seat:

After lunch, we couldn’t resist stepping onto the sand to sit down, relax and take a few pictures! These are all from between Forum Beach and Chac Mool Beach in the Cancun Hotel Zone (just outside Plaza Forum and Salvia condos).

Sometimes during a particularly bad rainy season, it’s hard to remember that I live in a really cool city. It’s impossible to make weekend plans because most of the time they will be cancelled. Even if it’s sunny when you step out to go to lunch, the streets might be too flooded to make it back home by the time you’re done eating.

Today was perfect, though.

  1. I’m dying, I thought I’d stop by to see what you were up to and now I’m pissed 😉 blizzard conditions today. Glad you’re enjoying the beautiful coast. Hope you’re doing well!

  2. What a life, hun. I had no idea you’d been getting so much rain. I’ve been back in the UK selling holidays to the Riviera Maya and Cancun saying, “Oh, yeah, it’s beautiful now. Gorgeous blue skies and hot weather.” Oops. Hahaha.
