As promised, more honeymoon photos for you guys! It was truly an amazing two weeks. All along we knew we really wanted to spend two weeks by turquoise waters, so budget-wise Mexico was the best option for us. We did a lot of research and fell in love with two resorts. Being the indecisive people we are, we opted to spend one week at each! The first one, El Dorado Casitas Royale, was out-of-this-world. It was secluded and private, so green and lush, and most importantly…entirely romantic. We had a fabulous casita suite right by the beach with an incredible view. So many amenities, my favorite being the open-air, outdoor shower! We spent our days lounging on beach beds, being spoiled by the beach butlers, and playing in the ocean. The food here was fit for a king. It was all-inclusive, but all 7 restaurants were gourmet. It was seriously impressive (and seriously yummy!) We even had a private dinner on the beach our last night there! We did head out one day to go snorkeling off Maroma Beach, my first time snorkeling, which was super fun. (Although I couldn’t get the Little Mermaid soundtrack out of my head the entire time!) And another day we toured the Mayan ruins at Tulum. Very fascinating stuff, but honestly the beach there (2nd & last pic above) was one of the most breathtaking things I’ve ever seen…I wish you guys could have seen it!!
The second week we spent at Sun Palace. We chose this place primarily because of the beach. Another all-inclusive, adults only resort, but not quite as luxurious or private as the first. We loved the more modern, sleek vibe though, and the beach here was fantastic…soft white sand, crisp clear turquoise water. The view from our room made it seem like we were on a cruise ship. It was a dream! This place was cool too because they give you a big chunk of change for “resort credit” that you can use for all sorts of things. We took a trip to Chichen Itza with part of it, then had upgraded wine with the rest. (Not sure I’d be willing to spend $175 for a bottle of champagne otherwise!) The highlight of this week, maybe the whole two weeks, was the day we spent on Isla Mujeres. We took the ferry over and just walked around, poked in the shops and took photos. After almost passing out from being so stink’n hot, we rented a moped and just drove around the colorful little island. I took about a million photos, the buildings above were from here (and that one from the other day I already showed you). It was just so, so cool. We actually took over 1300 photos the entire trip, so I made a collage below with some non-turquoise highlights. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!
