As most of you already know, we went on vacation to Mexico for a week on June 6th – June 13th. We were fortunate enough to stay at an all exclusive Gran Bahia Principe Coba resort, which was very nice. All the people there were super friendly and the landscape was beautiful. The weather was something we had to take time to adjust to, since us Canadians like it cooler, and the heat and humidity there were too much to handle at times. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we’re looking forward to our next vacation (wherever and whenever it may be).
Anyways, we thought we’d share some pictures from our experience there and whatnot. Enjoy!
These are what the Villa’s looked like. We stayed at Villa 31B.
This is what the inside of our Villa looked like (excuse the mess, we were in the process of unpacking). Pretty spacious and cozy for just two people. There was also air conditioning, which was one of the things we looked forward to most at the end of our days!
Every morning the maid would create these awesome towel decors! We were very impressed to say the least.
This is a generic idea of what most of the pools located around some Villa’s looked like. We pretty much got our swim on every day. The water was super warm and at some pools there were swim-up bars, which was hilarious and a pretty cool concept in our opinion.

These little guys (or in this case, BIG guy) were just chilling all over the place. Very interesting to see. If only they were more friendly and didn’t run away from us every time we approached them! If you’re very careful and cautious, you might be able to touch their tails, but since they bite we’d rather be safe than sorry.
This is what one of the three beaches looked like. The water was so beautiful and crystal-clear. If you stood still you’d be able to see extraordinary fishes swimming around you. Those brown log looking things are wave crashers. It’s advised to not swim beyond them, which was a little unfortunate since they were so close to shore, therefore the water wasn’t very deep or swim-able. It was still fun to climb up on them though and try to defy the force of the waves that came crashing over them!
These cute little rodents are called Coatis’. They’re like a mixture of an anteater, aardvark, and a bear. Every now and then we’d see them running around. But one day while we were at a snack bar grabbing some lunch, we managed to lure them in with our food. Eventually, about 12 of them came out of nowhere and were all surrounding our area. It was hilarious and awesome, although one of the workers told us to stop since we’re technically not allowed to be feeding the animals. Oops!
One day, we decided to go check out the ‘Hacienda’ which was the Spanish market. There were a bunch of booths set up with cool trinkets, souvenirs, clothing, etc. being sold.
The classic Mexican Sombrero!
Serji managed to catch a Gecko! Don’t worry, we safely returned it back to it’s natural habitat where it belongs.
Group shot! Left to right: Serji, Kelly (family friend), Monique (Taira’s mom), Tyler (Taira’s brother), Taira, Louise (Tyler’s girlfriend). Unfortunately, Taira’s dad is missing from the photo, but someone had to take the picture!
Pretty sky photo. Goodbye Mexico!
Thank you for taking the time to read about our experience in Mexico. If you’ve never been, we give you our recommendation to visit and check it out for yourselves, since these pictures serve it no justice.
