Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Cancun Love Affair

Tagged: ,

I’ve found through the years that people either love or hate Cancun – there’s no gray area when it comes to this Yucatan peninsula getaway on the beaches of Mexico.

It’s Monday again and there’s no getting over that fact. However, these “beachbarbums” tagged photos from Instagram might make your day a little brighter. Or they might just piss you off because you aren’t the one taking the pictures. Either way, they’re proof that people are having fun at bars, beach bars and beaches from Grenada (@jokost checks in at La Plywood Beach Bar) to Cancun (@celestedickson checks in from Cancun) to Key West...
