Sky Reef: The Sea of Fans...


Staying on the island for several days and this was one of the places I had on my list to go to.



After diving, we were trying to figure out what to do next. I mean we still had the rest of the day left and I was pretty down about my experience and how I reacted this really down. So, I had to go somewhere to take my mind off of it. 

I looked on my "Mapsme" to find someplace we hadn't been to yet. I decided we would check out the Skyreef. Hopefully it would have some decent snorkeling and I'd get some more of my "fish-fix"  for the day. The Skyreef is located right past Chankanaa and beside Playa Corona and before you get to San Francisco, Paradise, Playa Mia and the rest of those beach clubs on down. So, a little closer to town and only 10 minutes from the cruise dock.

We were starving and new we wanted to eat when we first arrived. Parking was across the street in the dirt and we headed up to the entrance to have our brains scanned and bodies disinfected and then found a seat under the huge palapa. Free entrance. 

The menu

Mi Esposo ordered wings (who wants wings when in Mexico??? He told me to take a picture and I'm like "no, it's just wings" ) and Hija ordered a shrimp burrito and I ordered fish tacos. The food was delicioso. I had to ask them what type of fish it was and they told me grouper. Awww, I ate the grouper that Hija seen earlier scuba diving. No wonder they have such a sad look on their face. :(

Here was our view as we ate lunch. That water was calling my name!

I ended up taking pictures of the area before we left for the day, so I'll show you those now so you can get a vision of this place. It's pretty small but they do have different areas to kind of not have people just piled up on each other. I liked that.
