Cancun – The Final Day

Filed under: travelogue — Tags: , , , , — yaadayaada @ 12:26 am

On the last day, we got up, packed our stuff, went down to the beach to absorb as much beauty as we can. Then went to 100% Natural restaurant for breakfast. Had the sandwich and wheat pancakes and some veggie juice. It was pretty good. But the service that day wasn’t very good. They brought the sandwich with the meat while we had ordered the vegetarian sandwich. They forgot to bring the syrup for pancake. When I asked, they did not understand, and finally when they brought it, I was almost done. ButΒ I am willing to let it slide assuming it was just a bad day.Β Then walked over to the flea market to pick up a magnet. The shopkeepers were trying to lure people in. They asked 10USD for a simple tiny magnet. Had to haggle a lot and finally a storekeeper gave it to me for 2USD after warning me that I don’t tell this to anyone. Came back to the hotel, relaxed a bit in the beach and the set out for our trip back home. The valet picked our baggages, and our car was waiting and we left for the aiport at around 1pm. Our flight was at around 4pm. Once we arrived at the airport, the porters where trying to carry our baggages. Shooed them away since the check in is right inside the place where the taxi dropped us. After checking in, browsed some souvenier shop and picked up another magnet. The prize was very reasonable there.

Thought we would pick up some food in the airport. But there weren’t any vegetarian option. They had some chinese, mexican, american food. They were atrociously expensive. We bought a bottle of water for 3$ and a 3 onion rings and 25 pieces of Potato fries for 5$ and shared it since the ice cream was 8$ for a couple of scoops. The flight back was ok. We stopped over in Phoenix, so grabbed dinner there and came back home at around midnight. Thus ended our wonderful vacation!
