We can never get enough of Ziggy and even though we had dined at Monchi’s the night before, we saw him at our next meal at Café Cito in the morning.
D chose the fresh fruit and Mexican eggs and I once again had the scrambled eggs and sautéed potatoes.
The piece de resistance at Café Cito is the toast (or buns) and the coconut/pear jam. I can’t get enough of it.
This was the day that we rented a golf cart and so we boogied around before we settled in for our primary task of the day.
We were pleased to host a special happy hour that evening in celebration of Sister #2 and Brother #3′s birthday (yes-they are twins). The preparation made us feel as if we were locals. I even picked flowers. Isobel, who’s family owns Luna D’Miel was such a huge help with our preparations. She is an extraordinary hostess and I would shout her accolades from the mountaintop (except that I am selfish and want to ensure that we can always get our room there).
Just as our guests started to trickle in, I captured another couple of gorgeous sunset pics.
Our niece had arrived by this time and even though many of the guests that we had invited did not attend in the end, it was our gang, Jean, Rich, Jan, Bruce and Pollo made an impromptu appearance. As we had not decided where to go for the evening, we asked Pollo what he would suggest. He called Sergio over at Limon and low and behold, there was room for us!
From the outside, I had no idea that the interior would be so sleek and luxurious. But as gorgeous as the décor was, the food was even better. We were the last table to arrive that evening and we knew that we were low persons on the totem pole with the kitchen. Sergio not only circulates through the dining, he personally oversees everything that comes out of the kitchen and we know that good food is worth waiting for.
We were content to catch up with Richelle and imbibe with the red wine that had been poured out at the table.
After a couple of caprese salad
and tortilla soups were consumed at our table,
the staff surmised that we would be more comfortable if we moved out to the gazebo in the garden. The breeze was lovely and by this time Sergio himself had an opportunity to join us at the table.
Richelle and I shared the fruita de mare fettuccine-with conch, shrimp and clams. Tossed in a rich cream sauce, Richelle declared that it was “moan worthy”.
Doug tick ‘n chix.
Donna avocado salad,
Michael fettuccine bolognaise,
Kim and Sue hibiscus tacos. Of the many amazing restaurants on Isla, Limon is now on my “must visit” list for future holidays.
It had been a long day and we were weary. We decided to grab a cab instead of walking home. The thing about spending time on Isla is that I am never disappointed when a fabulous days ends because I know that another amazing day awaits…..

Love-that is all.
