Day 1 Playa Del Carmen

Sorry for the lapse in posts, we went to Playa del Carmen on Thursday and obviously didnt have time to post.  We got in around 6:15 pm, but then the drive from the airport to our resort, Secrets Maroma, was a 45 minute drive.  Our friends Therese and David were already there, waiting for us in the lobby, having a minchelada or two.  We immediately went to the outdoor "bar b que" they were having  by the pools.  Didnt take any pictures of the food, it was pretty standard buffet style.  A couple of hours later we went and had more food, hey it was an all inclusive resort we had to get our moneys worth lol!  Here is night 1, dinner 2 :-)

Therese and I started off with the grilled octopus.  I really liked it, it tasted like a more rubbery calamari.

Therese and I love spicy food, so she asked for some of their hottest sauces.  She is giving them the thumbs up :-)

Therese had the shrimp and scallops, the scallops were so good!

I had the halibut with mashed potato's, the potato's were better than the fish.

Greg had the grilled chicken and fries.  It was ok, can't really go wrong with a standard chicken dish.

Saved the best for last, David ordered the ribs, they were so good!  We kept saying we were going back for them, but there were too many restaurants we had to try out before our short trip was over.
