I’m back from Mexico and so glad to be home. It was an amazing trip, and I am so excited to tell you guys about it. I was, however, in full-on vacation mode, so I didn’t snap a ton of photos, but, of course, being a blogger at heart, I couldn’t resist and have a bunch of share. That said, here are some highlights from my girls’ weekend in Cancun!
We stayed at the Grand Park Royal CancÃºn Caribe, an all-inclusive resort, right on the beach, about 20 minutes from the airport. It was a beautiful place and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I’m not exaggerating, we must have said at least a dozen times: “Everyone is so nice here.”
The four us stayed in a villa right on the beach.
And each one came with its own private cabana. Pretty fancy, huh?
Hello, Mr. Iguana! I saw quite a few of them””both big and small””during my stay. They roamed free around the resort.
There were a couple of pools with swim-up bars and plenty of space to lounge.
We spent all day Saturday and Sunday, hanging out by the pool, reading, relaxing, and drinking cocktails. Vacation = the best.
There was also a cool rooftop lounge where we grabbed drinks after dinner one night.
The food was really good for an all-inclusive resort and there were plenty of healthy options.
And, of course, plenty of not-so-healthy options!
I’m pretty sure I ate dessert with just about every meal.
The resort also offered various themed restaurants for dinner, including Italian and Asian cuisines.
The Chicken Picata was bomb.
Oooooh, the drinks. The cocktails were definitely flowing in Cancun.
No rest days on vacation! We hit it hard for workouts every morning, which is my favorite way to start the day. There is just something about a tough workout before a full day of total indulgence.
The first day, we used the gym to do a workout.
The second morning, we ran along the ocean and then did a beach workout.
I had such a wonderful time with these ladies. They’re a fun crew and we definitely had some good laughs together!
