A few weekends ago hubby and I woke up to a cloudless, bright sunny day and we decided to head down to Playa del Carmen for the day to hang out at Wicky’s beach club. I had recently come across a blog called Dream Burgers at Wicky’s (this guy LOVES burgers!-check out his blog) that had left me with a severe hankering for a really great burger so after throwing a few things into our back pack we hit the road. We arrived shortly after 11am and settled into a couple of very comfortable reclining chairs under a nice big sun umbrella and gazed out into the ocean. As I mentioned it was a beautiful day. The water was unusually still and the beach looked freshly raked and clean. We ordered a couple of mojitos from a very friendly waiter and took him up on his recommendation to try the shrimp tacos as an appetizer. YUMMY!
We then laid back and I cracked open my book while hubby looked through a magazine about cars and imagined himself behind the wheel of an Audi A-1 and Mazda RX-8. It was a warm day so we hit the water and splashed around for awhile until we had worked up our appetites again. It was finally burger time!!! We ordered two Gringo Burgers (cheddar cheese, smoked applewood bacon, mayo, ketchup and grilled onions) with a side of fries for hubby and the house chips for me.Each minute that went by seemed like an eternity while we waited and I wondered whether the burger would stand up to all the hype. It finally came all nestled into a basket with perfectly cooked crispy bacon and heaps of grilled onions atop a half pound of juicy, savoury ground beef molded into a perfect burger patty.The lettuce, tomato and red onion were nice and fresh and the pickles were tangy and crunchy My only concerns were how I was going to fit that huge burger into my mouth and whether I would be able to finish it all without exploding first.
We slowly polished off our lunch leaving nothing behind and waddled back to our beach chairs for an afternoon nap. We spent the rest of the day swimming, reading and talking about just how lucky we are to live in Paradise. It can be so easy at times to forget why I came to Cancun to live especially when I get caught up in the day-to-day stuff …life in general but it only ever takes a fun day out away from home to remember why I am here.
If you are looking for a cool beach club to hang out in Playa del Carmen Wicky’s is just one of the many places to go to for the day. The service was great they had cool tunes and amazing mouth-watering burgers just make sure that you go on an empty stomach.
