Today's Walk, Cancun, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

I seem to be on a roll with these daily 5-kilometer walks. Actually, there are quite a few folks out at sunrise with the same idea.   Near kilometer milepost 11 is this oceanfront complex, Bay View Grand. I really like the lines, curves, and location of the 18-story condo buildings right on the beachfront sand.   And some of the owners offer long term rentals.  I think it is too pricey for me but maybe worth looking into for another future winter. Someone might want to strike a deal at  a discount.  Seems like the entire building is wrapped with outside deck space and drop dead gorgeous views.

I have never seen an open-24-hours burrito bar until now.  This establishment, barely three meters wide is open all the time.  It doesn't look like anyone wanted a beer or burrito when I happened by at 645am this morning though....... Earlier in my lifetime, I have had either a beer OR a burrito at 0645 in the morning but, I don't think I've had both together.  What have I been missing?

I am not a representative of the Riu Hotel organization but, I do seem to be drawn to their visually dramatic properties.  The ones I've seen are just spectacular. Haven't  stayed at one yet, though.

We are staying at Casa Maya Hotel (and timeshare), which is pretty nice also but not in the same class as the Riu properties I've seen.  But more importantly than the looks, I prefer a quieter environment.  Here at Casa Maya they often have loud DJ music playing  at the pool much of the day and sometimes in the evenings. And to complicate matters further, offshore, the pirate party boats seem to like to anchor/hover nearby with hooting and hollering and playing loud thumping dance music until late. Bah humbug! - I prefer to only hear the lapping of the waves.
