Home Away From Home
For twelve days last summer, I called Sea Adventure Resort & Waterpark my home away from home. We needed a place close to the beach, quiet, away from the maddening crowd of Hotel Zone where I could undergo fertility treatment and procedure in peace. So months before the date of my procedure we scoured the interweb for accommodation. We have a timeshare in Cancun, but it's in Hotel Zone, the place where I was avoiding.
We were searching for hotels but we were not seeing anything we liked at the price we could afford. Then suddenly out of nowhere an idea came to mind. Why not google rentals by owners? So we did. The hubby reached out to one online that met all of our needs, plus it was within our budget. Even at the very last minute I was not fully sold to the idea.
It said online that it was "close to the beach". But I had my reservations. Sometimes the words "close to the beach" can be very relative. Yet, I hesitatingly gave my go. After all, the owner had given us a very good deal ($400 for 12 days).
The resort is family oriented with more Hispanics than Americans/Canadians. It is located in the Puerto Juarez area of Cancun and just across from the charming little island of Isla Mujeres.
There are a few suites that are privately owned. These suites are rented out by the owners themselves. We got a studio suite with two queen beds and a working kitchen with all the utensils.
There is microwave, stove and refrigerator, but no oven. The bathroom is showers only, but very nice. In addition, the owner has a good collection of books/novels that came in handy on days I was bedbound.
Because we have a kitchen and because the hubby loves to cook and because we both love to grocery shop (they have a Walmart), we cooked most of our meals.
The meals we ate at the balcony, overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
From our balcony, if I spit like a pro, my spit will reach the Sea. Yes, the studio is "close to the beach".
