Belated Honeymoon

Well we finally went on our honeymoon last week to Cozumel, Mexico. It was a blast! We got to miss out on the single digit weather at home and experience their cold weather which was the upper 60s and 70s. While we were there we got to eat a lot of good food. Our favorite things there was the tortillas and their cheese. We stayed in a super nice condo while we were there that over looked the ocean. Ours is the one on the right of the two middle buildings.

We rented a convertable vw bug for the first four days so we could learn where everything was and go to the other side of the island.

We were really sad when we had to return it.

We went parasailing which was very interesting since I had never been before and Justin had, but it was pretty neat and alot of fun. Sorry I didn't get any pictures of us doing that. We went on a pirate dinner cruise one night which was really cool. The mexican pirates were hilarious. The coolest thing we did there was go deep sea fishing. We caught barracudas. I caught one fish and Justin caught 3. He caught a really big one too that was like 20 lbs.

I let the pro fisher hold my fish for me.
Justin with one of his big fish!
We got to snorkel just right outside our condo since it connected to the ocean. I wish my underwater camera would have worked because it was so cool seeing really colorful fish. It was just like the fish on Finding Nemo! Justin even got to see a Seahorse, I was so jealous!

We spent one day on the most beautiful beach! I wish I would have never saw this because now all I want as a back yard is this. I love the coconut trees and the little shack/shade things!Probably my favorite picture from the whole trip!
You always hear that in Mexico or these tourist island/places that you have to watch out for people wanted to sell you time shares. Well...we had heard that but didn't think it would actually happen to us. This is one of the funniest things that happened to us while we were there. It all started when we went to a supermarket to buy some snacks and stuff one night. There was a little Mexican dude trying to tell me and Justin that we should fill out a paper and go get a free breakfast and take a tour on this hotel and be able to get to rent a Jeep for $20. All you had to do was pay ten dollars. Well this sounded pretty good to Justin (I knew it was a scam). We thought well even if we don't get a Jeep ten dollars for breakfast would be pretty good. So the next morning they come pick us up and take us to this super nice hotel. When we get there we are starving just wanting breakfast and they tell us we have to take the tour first. Well 2 hours later we take the tour after listening to a guy trying to sell us a time share. I have to admit the tour was really neat when we actually got to it. Now we are surely going to get our breakfast right?? Wrong! When we get done they tell us we're too young and you have to be at least 30 to eat breakfast there! Ugh we are so mad now! So now we're waiting for our Jeep and they tell us "Oh sorry we're out of jeeps today. You can have a bug." By this time we're like you've got to be kiddig me. Well we ended up losing our 10 bucks and left with no Jeep and no breakfast. So we're walking forever back into town all mad cuz we didn't get a free breakfast when all of a sudden we fall into something...
We had just stepped in wet concrete! It just topped off our whole morning, but it was probably the funniest thing that happened to us the whole time we were there. All we could do was laugh and laugh!
This is one of many of the gorgeous sunsets we saw while we were there.

All in all we had such a great time, but was definitely ready to come back home at the end of the week.
