A world in our Hotel
The main attraction of the complex where we stayed, is without a doubt,its beach and its pool, the latter with many attractions for "tourists" (including "tequila time"). They are nothing more than "all-inclusive" that allow the visitor to abstract from the routine in which each one gets into their daily lives, and the truth is that it works very well. With a multitude of activities that were always encouraging their visitors.

Although, yes as the family we are like chameleons, well ...!Sun and sea, perfect combination!!
Thus we spent the second day in Mexican lands, until the sunset came over the Nichupté lagoon, "behind our backs", a dark lagoon that leaves a beautiful sunset. The family faced their "penultimate trip" together, right?
