Unforgettable Memories at Majahuitas and Fish Cove

Majahuitas-Mexico-Day5-5

On our last full day at Majahuitas in Mexico, we wanted to soak in all the beauty surrounding the eco-resort.

Just as we sat down to have breakfast, the staff went running to the ocean shore. Of course, our boys are filled with curiosity and followed behind them to see what all the excitement was about. The entire cove was filled with a swarm of fish that the staff began to toss their fishing lines in to catch. The catch was great, and the boys were able to play a part in catching food that would feed the resort and the families of the staff members for weeks. It was just another amazing experience that made us not want our time at Majahuitas to end.

After spending the morning fishing, we jumped into the kayaks and explored the surrounding coves along the coastline. We came across a cove that is known as Fish Cove because of the beautiful fish that surround this popular reef. Our family jumped off the kayaks and spent hours swimming with beautiful tropical fish surrounding us in the shimmering turquoise waters.

After a full morning of fishing and snorkeling, we returned to Majahuitas for lunch, just to discover they had a fish from the morning catch beautifully presented for us to enjoy. Along with the fish our family also enjoyed fruit cocktail, ceviche, ham sandwiches, taquitos and nachos for lunch. It was a perfect last lunch at Majahuitas for our family to eat while soaking in the last views of the afternoon sun over the crystalline waters.

When lunch was over, we retreated to the ocean where we floated on rafts (that I had purchased at Target before coming). While we were floating with the other guests who had became like family to us, a *fancy* boat came cruising into the cove. Since Majahuitas is a private beach, boats can come into the cove to snorkel, but they cannot come onto the sand. The boat was the “Nelly D” and was pumping loud American music.

The “Nelly D” boat

We were all watching the excitement happening on the yacht from our rafts when they lowered a diving board off the back of the yacht. The partygoers on the yacht started doing flips and jumps from the diving board off the yacht when we noticed our two boys heading towards the yacht in their kayak. Before we could blink an eye, our boys were boarding the boat and jumping off the killer diving board into the Majahuitas cove.

Moments later, the boys got back on their kayak and returned to the beach. Andrew nonchalantly said, “Nelly was awesome to let us jump off his diving board.” All of us gathered around him with excitement as he told us that the pop singer graciously let them utilize his diving board.

The boys became a Majahuitas “legend” as we all could not get over the fact that the boys jumped off the diving board of Nelly’s boat, and there was air conditioning, which we would have killed for at that moment of 350% humidity.

Walking to dinner in the thunder storm

We returned to the Mangos House to get ready for dinner when another thunderstorm began (and the biggest we had seen while staying at the resort). It was a sign that the season was ending. The bugs were getting stronger, the humidity greater and the nights were filled with sounds of pounding thunder.

The staff brought our family umbrellas to make our way to the main building for what would be our last night in Majahuitas. For dinner, they served a macadamia crusted halibut with creme brûlée for dessert.

Although we were sad to leave the resort, we were eager for air conditioning, showers and electricity. While we were eager to have all the luxuries of life that we have taken for granted all these years, we were still not ready to be sucked back into the fast-paced life that we had been living for so many years.

What our five nights at Majahuitas taught our family was that life is precious, and can be taken from us at any moment. We need to cherish every moment like it is our last, and create memories that can be passed down to generations after us.

Our time at Majahuitas changed our family. It brought us closer together, and made it clear what is important to us in life – each other! We are already planning our return to Majahuitas (although during the winter when the bugs and humidity are not so great), and we look forward to visiting this resort with our family for many years to come.
