|Playa Blanca - beach in front of our hotel|
Now since this is a cooking blog, I won't go into too much detail about what we did, but I would like to share with you some of the food and drink we experienced during our week's stay.
This is a picture of me, on day two, eating a seafood entree at the restaurant located on Sirena Beach. This was not part of our all-inclusive package.
The entree included a large lobster tail, 2 grilled shrimp, and a delicious grilled fish as well. It was absolutely divine!
At our hotel, at every lunch hour, there were offerings of grilled chicken, pork, and fresh fish for patrons. I enjoyed this fish and rice with a glass of white wine. If fish is not your fancy, there are also grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, personal pizzas, as well as pasta, and other buffet items.
And this here, is one of the most famous Cuban cocktails - a Mojito. It was made by a bartender named Mathew at the Paraiso beach bar. It contains sugar, mint leaves, lime juice, club soda, and of course, Cuban rum. He also added a couple of drops of something called "angostura", typically used for flavoring drinks. It was the BEST mojito I ever had!
Looking back, I wish I had taken more pics of the food. But then again, I didn't always want to carry my camera with me to lunches and dinners. After all, I was on vacation. I hope you enjoyed the images of what I did capture. We had such a wonderful, relaxing week in beautiful Cayo Largo. It is nice to be home again after being spoiled for an entire week. Although it was nice to get a break from cooking meals, I really miss cooking! I do hope you enjoyed this post. Your comments are so welcome and appreciated. Have a wonderful day! xo

Everything looks and sounds absolutely scrumptious! I wish I was there to taste everything too, I particularly love seafood and cocktails so I would have settled in nicely!
We have Angostura bitters here, a dash or two just adds a nice herby bitter edge to drinks. We use it at the pub and it is often used to pep up a glass of lemonade and is actually extremely alcoholic at almst 50% volume!
Lovely to catch up on the post,
