Mexico

Hola!

Welcome to Mexico. Cancun to be exact, and another all-inclusive trip (my fav).

We spent a week here, and let me tell you, a week wasn't long enough.

Our seven days were spent at the Hard Rock resort (Hard Rock Cancun, NOT Riviera Maya), and it was pure bliss.

 

Although this resort was a lot smaller than the Hard Rock in Punta Cana, it felt cozier for some reason, and even the ocean also seemed a bit more clear.

Sadly we didn't get a room with beach views, but we still had a killer view that faced the palm trees and water in the distance.

I made sure to start off every morning on our balcony with my coffee and delicious breakfast.

It really felt like a dream.

One of my favorite things from our stay was the foam party in the pool. The music was great, and the hosts were super fun and entertaining. Everyone from young to old had such a blast, and it was way better than the foam party in Punta Cana in my opinion.

The locals and staff were also very friendly for the most part. There were a few that made things a bit awkward though when they lingered around and demanded a tip. If you happened to run out of cash at the time and not tip them, they would storm off.

Although we tipped as often as we could, tips were supposedly already included in the price of the stay at the time of booking, so that part left us a bit confused.

Taxis are quite cheap in Mexico, so we decided to dedicate one of our days to shopping around the city and exploring the flea markets. The market was fun to walk around in and see all of the cool souvenirs, but I would be lying if I said it didn't annoy the crap out of us hearing "hey my friend, I have a good price for you" every 30 seconds from every single vendor trying to sell us something.

The stuff we ended up buying, we bought from the few merchants who weren't breathing down our necks.

My husband is really fascinated with historical things, so on our last day, we booked a trip to go see one of the seven wonders of the world- the Mayan Ruins aka Chichen Itza. Our tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable, so it was anything but boring. If you take the time to look through the hundreds of photos I took, and watch the vlogs, you will see that these ruins are pretty spectacular.

The tour also included a quick stop at the Cenote (natural sinkhole) which was amazing. You could even dive into it and swim around if you're brave enough. We also stopped by in a little city (I can't remember the name), for some authentic Mexican food (buffet style), and a bit of sight seeing.

Authentic Mexican food is definitely one of my all time favorite cuisines!
