“If you want to swim in the pool during the night but the lights in the pool are not on, don’t get into it. You’ll never know who are you swimming with…
Crocodiles… And let me tell you, they might not be as big as they have it in Africa, but anyway. Most of the big ones are, luckily, in a nearby sanctuary, fenced and protected from people (or vice versa). But some of them still live in a pond near the golf terrain, just across the street from where we were. As the innkeeper told us, during rainy season they come out and go wondering around. Some smaller ones already visited the pool in his property. Twice 😯
Other animals we’ve seen are far from dangerous, if we forget poisonous scorpions and some snakes, that is.
Tony “The Taxi Man” told me you can die if this one stings you…
So, as I said, most of them are just beautiful. Birds, for instance.
Great-tailed grackle. Even though it look like a crow, or even magpie, the way it communicates with other grackles is amazing, sounds it makes are so… tropical 😛 But the way they nag people resemble them with magpies. Almost evil 😛
A lot of insects, of course, mosquitoes were feasting on me but it was all part of the experience. But some other ones are plain beautiful.

There will be some more posts about our trip to Ixtapa in next few days. When I find some more time, that is. In a meantime you can check on some other photographs here.
