Unfortunately, the alarm woke me up a 04:45 instead of my usual 06:45 time as I forgot to set the clock to Mexican time. So took a walk to the beach along the dilapidated dock where I met Lenny who offered to take me to Isla Mujeres on his boat for 30USD and all the beer and tequila I can drink. Most likely a rip off and do I want to be tossed over and fed to the sharks? All tourists in Cancun are potential victims especially if they can be isolated. Beware of Mexicans bearing gifts. Awful to say but reality can be unpleasant. After a sparse continental breakfast off to the beach which serves the hotels in the Hotel Zone. Nice white sand and water which is a bit rough. Seaweed littering the beach. Lots of umbrellas and thatched huts. Why I attended the “welcome greeting” offered by the Sunquest representative I don’t know. A total waste of time. It was so informative to learn the people in Cancun speak Spanish! Walked into town to El Pirata for a delicious red snapper filet. The restaurant was full of sunburnt Americans downing an assortment of tequila-based drinks. Dinner was $8.
