Believe it or not but this is actually our first real vacation together. We have been to Sweden together a few times to visit my family and we once went to Dominican Republic on a long weekend for a wedding. But this is the first time we have our own real vacation just the 2 of us. And we sure picked the perfect spot. When we were looking for destinations there was a couple requirements we felt was important. For me it HAS to be a direct flight because my fear of flying is really bad. We also want to see good reviews and a certain standard to amenities and service. After spending few weeks looking around Tyrone found our paradise. On top of all the things we were looking for they were also dog friendly - we could bring Cash which was the icing on the cake. That really elevated our stay in Mexico!
The resort is Ahau Collection in Tulum Mexico and I love it so much so I wanna go back here at least once a year from now on. It is very environmentally friendly and they really love animals.
We flew in to Cancun airport and from there it is about a 2 hour drive (depending on traffic) .So worth the extra 2 hours, trust me!
Check out their website!
We stayed in this cute little hut, it was adorable!
The absolute best part about this hotel is their food. I can't tell you enough how fresh and flavorful everything was. We tried almost everything on the entire menu. Only dish I wasn't impressed by was the quesadillas but everything else was TOP NOTCH. I am very well travelled and I work with very high end restaurants every week so believe me when I say the food here is IMPRESSIVE!!!
The absolute last thing I want to do on vacation (or anytime for that matter LOL) is go to the gym. But there is this really cute "jungle gym" on the beach and it is definitely worth a trip there - even just to take pictures!
We had breakfast and lunch at our hotel basically every day but tried other places for dinner. The quality and standard is so high all across so we were never disappointed one bit.
The last day we spent at Bagatelle Beach Day Party. So much fun in the sun! Extra plus to the staff for giving Cash ice cold towels to cool off with every 30 min. That is service if anything!!!!!!
Check out my Vlog from our vacation, hope you enjoy it!
