Namita’s 40th birthday party extravaganza in the Riviera Maya – Saturday and Sunday

I decided to combine the next two days, because we really spent the majority of our days in the pool drinking beverages, meeting very nice people from Milwaukee, Nebraska, and Iowa.

Saturday was kinda cool because Teo and I played beach volleyball with some folks, which was a first for me.

Cancun 2017 (102 of 115)Teo, Sofia and Nums did get beachside massages in the late afternoon, and I went to work out at the gym.

Saturday night we went to Rincon Mexico for dinner and we were supposed to see some fire show at the resort theater area. Unfortunately I got sick (bad indigestion or gas or something) and Teo ended up doing me a solid and running to the resort gift shop to pick up Pepto Bismol and Tums. Nums and I didn’t make it to the show, and Teo & Sofia caught the tail end, then went to the Guacamayas bar that stays open until 2 am.

Bummer.

Sunday was more time at the bar, plus Nums got another massage. We met a few more people from Nebraska at a hot tub on the Casitas side, and ended up drinking and chilling with them for another hour or so. Teo and I made two separate beer runs to empty our respective mini-fridges of all beer and champagne.

We grabbed Sunday dinner at Fuego, another Mexican restaurant. After dinner, we caught the last 20 minutes of “El Dorado Karaoke”, then got another two rounds of drinks at Guacamayas next door.

We had an opportunity for a beachside dinner, but the weather never cooperated in the evenings. For both Saturday and Sunday late afternoon and early evenings,  a heavy rainstorm and high winds would move in and hit the area. Both evenings during sunset, it was either raining or raining and windy. We never got to eat on the beach, so that sucked. Teo and Sofia had also planned to go snorkeling during the weekend, but the high winds cancelled excursions both days. Double bummer.

Our last full days of vacation were slipping away.
