Huatulco, Mexico – Day 7 – Navel Lookout Spot, Guns & Beers & Reflections of a Full Day

After a brief stop at the overcrowded La Entrega Beach, Michael and I followed our fellow Canadian friends, Patricia and Joel – P & J, to a popular lookout spot of Santa Cruz Bay.

Mexican Navel Look-Out Over Santa Cruz Bay

Santa Cruz Cemetery

We drove past the Santa Cruz Cemetery.

Guns and Beers

On our way back to La Crucecita, we stopped off at Guns & Beers to say a quick hello to Canadian friends!

Dinner at Terra Cotta

Covered in sand from a day of adventure and beach hopping, we settled into the lovely restaurant, Terra Cotta for a tasty dinner!! Michael and I started with a favorite, coconut shrimp. I had the tenderloin steaks, Michael had the fish, Patricia had the chicken and Joel had the pizza! Dessert is my favorite dish of any meal!! My favorite combination is a plain New York cheesecake with glass of chardonnay! The cheesecake was so fluffy and light!!

Time to Call it a Day

After dinner, we followed P & J out of downtown La Crucecita and made out way home!

  1. Was this the earthquake from Jamaica? We landed in Belize about an hour after the earthquake. Did you feel much in Mexico? It didn’t cause any damage in Belize.

    1. I don’t know? I was awake and when it happened. My brain couldn’t register what it was. The entire building shook for at least 5 seconds (something like that) with a loud sound like a huge, rumbling truck – that was what my mind then identified the moment as – a truck so big passing by it shook the building. It was only later, talking to fellow Canadians at a restaurant, did I learn what I experienced was an earthquake. The sound I heard was the earth moving. From what I was told from Canadian snowbirds we met, Oaxaca gets earthquakes all the time. Not large scale ones, just rumbles here and there.

      1. Yikes that’s scary!

      2. It didn’t feel scary because my brain didn’t realize what it was. Interesting that…..
