Arriving: Soliman Bay, Mexico ~ July 2014

We made our annual pilgrimage to our favorite beach destination, Soliman Bay, Mexico for another two weeks of fun in the sand and sun. It always feels like home at our vacation rental, Nah Uxibal, and caretakers Javier and Victoria greets us with smiles and hugs.

For the last several years we’ve been renting from Blueway Car Rentals, which is an offsite car rental agency. Their people speak English, have been nice and no one has hassled us yet. They pick you up just outside the airport exit doors and take you to the business.

Then we drive about and hour and half south to Soliman Bay, stopping off at the Chedraui grocery in Puerto Aventura to grab some drinks and supplies. I love their bakeries! This is the new big Chedraui bakery on the Tulum Road.

The ceviche and fish tacos from Urge Taquito in Tulum are one of our favorite things for lunch, washed down with an ice cold beer.
