The weekend rush is over. There are significantly less people at the resort today compared to Friday-Sunday. It was like a wave of people just came and went. Club Med Ixtapa is rather small, but there’s still a lot of things to do.
The weather here has been hot and humid. We have been taking it semi-easy our first week here.
Every morning either Michael or I would attend the 9:30am (intermediate) or 10:30am (beginner) tennis session. A few of the days, we were fortunate to get our own private lesson! When one of us plays tennis, the other would watch and play with Kai. We didn’t bring our own rackets or tennis shoes, but they have ones we can borrow here. Those are two of the things we wish we brought.
We considered putting Kai in the Baby Club Med, but there are so few kids here that it wouldn’t be too much fun for him. This week, there are a handful of kids in the Mini Club Med, which is from 4-10 years old.
Iguanas 🦎 are out and about when the sun is out:) Kai likes to search for them and call out: “Dinos where are you?” And he even goes “shhhhh” when we are near them.
When Kai naps in the afternoon, we have been able to go head to head at archery, ping pong, and bocce ball. We have also had chances to play tennis with each other, which is nice.
In the evening, we typically go to the beach to watch the sunset. Since we are on the west coast, we wanted to take advantage of seeing them every night we are here. Since it’s rainy season, some nights have been a little misty. But overall we have been pretty lucky. We don’t mind overcast skies since we are used to the heat here.
Yesterday we ended up taking a taxi 🚕 into Ixtapa City Center, which was only ten minutes away, to check out the outdoor market for some souvenirs. We just ended up getting Kai crocodile and iguana toys and just walked around. We stayed for about an hour and got a taxi back to the resort. Kai was tired afterwards, but he enjoyed seeing all of the vendors and saying hi to everyone.
This afternoon, Michael is on a fishing excursion while I’m hanging with Kai. He’s been getting some much needed shut-eye.
Food has been delicious so far; no complaints in that department.
In the evening we have been staying up to watch the show at 9:15pm. Each night has been different so far. Kai really enjoyed the singing and dancing. He loves to clap during the shows. Last night’s performance was pretty cool too.
More to come…
