The Copa del Rey has grown over the past few years into one of the most anticipated polo tournaments in Mexico. This year, the event spanned three weekends of play with matches taking place at El Rey Polo Club in Puerto Morelos and also on the beach at Dreams Resort in Cancun. While we have been to dozens of polo matches during our stay in Mexico, this is the very first time we have been lucky enough to watch a match on the beach with the beautiful Caribbean as a backdrop.

Despite the horrible weather we have been experiencing for the past month, the kids and I decided to chance it and drive up from Playa to watch the last day of play on the beach and the finals for this week of the tournament. My heroic-amazona-gal-pal Catriona was playing for the win with team Scappino and I did not want to pass up the chance to see her play.

It was a gloomy day (tough for taking pictures) and in the end Catriona's team finished in second place to team Lemmus but we all had a great time and enjoyed an exciting afternoon of great polo! Here are a few good shots from the day. To view the complete album on Facebook, click here.
