After El Tamarindo our next stop was El Careyes Beach Resort, another member of the Mexico Boutique Hotels group. A bit more conventional and much more affordable than the extremely exclusive El Tamarindo.
All of the guests in the hotel, except for us, were there as part of a wedding party celebrating the marriage of a girl from Guadalajara and a boy from Switzerland. Worried that we would be troubled by the music they planned to play around the pool until 4am, they simply (and graciously) invited us to the wedding – our first Mexican wedding! The funniest part was the first few songs after the 1st dance – Beatles, Stones… then Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” with everyone singing along with the lyrics perfectly. Are we still in Mexico?
