The first time we stayed in Cancun, Mexico we barely left the hotel for our meals. We cooked most of them in our nice timeshare kitchen at the Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas and Spa and, truth be told, outside it was pouring the kind of rain that goes UP your skirt.
We ended up getting an opportunity to return to the Westin Lagunamar within the year. This time we decided to venture out and find some local Mexican fare. Unbeknownst to us, as part of the very large La Isla Shopping Mall right across the street from our hotel was restaurant alley, located right on the lagoon with great sunset views. Score!
