Hotel Azucar, Monto Gordo, Mexico

Josh and I took advantage of no kids time, to head to Mexico. Though quick, it was a wonderful escape. Very relaxing, simple food, amazing beach and gracious people. Perfect.

Our room. All white at Azucar. Can't get any better than this.Azucar bamboo bar sign.

The circle step walk to our room.

Dinner and scrabble by the pool.

The beach at Azucar was coffee brown and crystal clear.
So delighted by the abundance of sand dollars.
