Mexico Recap

27 Jun

I’m baaaack! I’m missed you all very much, but I have to say that being back home is very bitter-sweet. This past week went by in the blink of an eye and I just wish I could go back and relive it all over again. But alas, you have to go on…and the good news is that I now get to show you guys all the beautiful shenanigans that we enjoyed. 😀

Warning: picture-heavy post. I tried to limit it down…but with a beach this gorgeous, every picture was screaming to be put on the blog. 😉

The plane ride there seemed to go by dreadfully slow as we were all in anticipation of finally arriving in paradise. Upon arriving, we were greeted with pina coladas. I was in love from that point on, obviously.

We got up to our rooms and quickly unloaded our stuff and freshened up.

We checked out some of the pool areas…

Swim up bar? Yes, please.

But that didn’t last long because there was a beach waiting for us!

This is where we spent most of our time lounging, under the huts:

Finally in paradise, I took part in a victory jump:

Our first lounge on the chairs:

Our first feel of sand underneath our feet:

After being up at 2 o’clock in the morning to get to the airport, we were TIRED. We hit the sack pretty early so we would be well rested for the next day.

beach. Need I really say any more?

They had activities on the beach and at the pool going on all day long that you could watch or join in on. Here is a little soccer action going on:

How about a wedding on the beach? We saw 3 over the course of our trip. Jealous, I know.

We also saw the classic “guy buried in the sand” as well:

It was great being able to just wake up and go down to the beach and activities, without out really getting ready. Then once the evening rolled around, you get as dressed up (or not) as you wanted. Perfect!

Obviously, there was some awesome backgrounds for pictures:

This guy set up his little area at nights and spray paints his little heart out. He was amazing!

Other night activities included lots of music and dancing:

Congo line! what up!

The food was FANTASTIC! They had several different restaurants and a main buffet area where you could go to eat any time. Not to mention free 24/7 room service. Saweet.

Here we are in the main buffet eating dinner one night:

Pretty fruit plate:

Spring rolls!

Some sort of asian salad thingy:

Best place to be at night? Two words: DISCO. ROOM.

We pretty much got our dance on every single night we were there. That most definitely counted as my workouts. 4 hours of dancing should not be taken lightly. 😉

When things get a little crowded on the dance floor, what can you do? Go sit down? Why, of course not, you dance on a box!

Hey, we’re on vacation.

Tatoo time:

Us girls on our last night:

And that sums up most of the trip. Just lots of fun, relaxation, perfection. I can still feel the sand now.

Oh yeah, I also may have fallen in love?

But that would be a whole post in itself, so lets just say it was the best trip of my life.
