As Canadians from the west coast we still cannot get over the idea that every day is sunny with bright blue skies. Temperatures consistently were between 65 F in the evening to 85 F in the day.

Our other friends from Cortes ate out most nights and were really pleased with the price, variety, and quality of their meals. We found several stores that provided us with most of our ingredients for home cooked meals, of note; Lydias general store (Abarrotes) and Mariscos Deli.
Important trips during our languid days was the Eco Mangrove Tour
, the hike up the valley to the waterfall and pools and our daily visit to watch the sun go down.
