Unfortunately, we are officially home from our trip to Cancun. It was incredible! Tastefully Simple paid for us to stay for four days at an all-inclusive resort (The Moon Palace) right off the beach. There were 17 restaurants, 3 lobbies and 2450 rooms spread over 280 acres. We had to drive a mile off the access road just to hit the main building to check in! This place was enormous.
Our room was equipped with a hot tub, BioSilk hair products in the shower, (free) liquor dispensers in the mini bar and a hammock on the balcony. Talk about pleasing the men AND the women! Endless alcohol for the guys, relaxation and romance for the ladies. And free calls to the states, so we could call and check on the kids whenever we wanted.
All weekend, Mike and I lounged by the pool, strolled along the beach, got a couple’s massage at the spa and ate and drank to our heart’s content. Somehow, I only gained a couple of pounds (we did make it to the gym a couple of times and, of course, walked all around the huge resort a lot) and I seem to have already lost the water weight since we returned home a couple of days ago. Whew! I was sweatin' that one, let me tell ya'!
Here are the rest of the details in pictures...
|Our resort was amazingly beautiful. This was one of the millions of walkways between the clusters of buildings.|
|Margarita pizza anyone? Notice that our chairs are IN the pool.|
|Notice the turquoise water in the distance...that was a sandbar that we were able to walk to in the ocean. The water only got waist-high. You can kind of see other people walking out there in the picture. So cool!|
|Chrystal clear water...ahhhh....|
|Our last night in Cancun...the weather was absolutely perfect!|
|We ordered 6 of the 8 desserts on the menu. People at other tables were taking pictures of us...we didn't care. I wanted a bite of everything and it was FREE, so why not?|
|Apparently there is a big crocodile population where we were...??? We never saw any, but there were giant iguanas all over the place. I wasn't quick enough with my camera to get shots of them for the kids.|
|The view from our balcony...we'd just lay in the hammock and watch the ocean. It was heaven!|
