We're Back

We're back from our whirlwind vacation, (or extremely relaxing and extremely too short vacation) to Mexico. It was b-e-a-utiful! We had weather between 89 and 95 degrees every day with a 5 minute rain delay on the last day at the beach. Believe me, I can deal with that!

Anyway... we did this really cool vacation through our travel agent, where you pick the level resort you want to stay at (they use apples and we chose 6 apple) and you choose the region you want to stay in, they call it the apple square deal. For example, we chose 6 apple, Riviera Maya, Adults Only. This means, we get no less than a 6 apple hotel, in the Riviera Maya, and no children. The price was significantly lower than even the cheapest resort in that grouping. We ended up at this posh hotel where everything was lavishly decorated. The food was delicious. It was awesome. We saved a ton of money too! Here are some pictures from the resort we stayed in. I'll try and post some of my pictures from the vacation soon!

Here's the resort's main pool. The swimup bar is located in this pool as well as two restaurants overlooking the pool. This pool was always packed, and I never once stepped foot in it, but I walked by it all week. Beautiful! We spent most of our days out on the beach overlooking that bright blue ocean!

This is a view looking down on the main pool from one of the restaurants. (And yes, it really did look like that!)

This really is what our room looked like. Every room in the hotel is a suite, which means you get this monster shower (with no door), a jacuzzi tub for two, and a huge bathroom. The only downfall was that everything was very open. This is fine for a married couple, but if you're going there with someone whom your only dating, it could get a little awkward when using the facilities (if you know what I mean!) The bed was honestly like sleeping in a cloud. I had the BEST NIGHT SLEEPS of my life right there in that bed! We also had a couch and tv, a table with two chairs, and a huge balcony which overlooked a pool and the ocean!

Those are just some of the pictures that I found! This place was uber-modern and everything about it was done to a T. I would love to go down there and stay at that same resort again! It was like another honeymoon for us. We had so much fun!

I'm not excited to be back home, and even less excited to be back to work. But I am excited to get wet puppy kisses from our little pooch when I get home today. I missed her, and my friend who works at the dog kennel said she moped around all week, missing us.

Stay tuned, more pictures to come later :-)

Wow! That place is gorgeous! We were planning on a trip to Riviera Maya this year but we chose Vegas instead. Would love to know the name of that resort. Stunning!

Mexico is my favorite place on earth and if I could just figure out a way to earn a living there I would be there in a heartbeat living in a caravan on the beach on the Costa Maya! Glad you had a great time.

Happy ICLW
