The Grand Mayan

Our other objective in reaching Banderas Bay by early March was to taste resort life at its finest by crashing on Jeff and Cecilia Garrity’s couch at the Grand Mayan Resort.  The Garrities were also hosting John and Colleen Quinn and Tim and Violet Hancock (who flew in from England).  Rounding out the group were Calgarians Rob and Sue Depoe and Gordon and Susan Fache, who own a condominium in nearby Paradise Village.  After being on a small boat for 8 months, we quickly readjusted to the amenities and time with our friends, old and new.  Our visit included Oscar night at Paradise, regular beach walks, fine dining, and a sail on Elizabeth Jean followed by cockpit cocktails and a night of Cuban Salsa music at Octopuses Garden.
