Mexico - Arriving in Cancun

I'm back from Mexico! I considered throwing a tantrum in the hotel lobby this morning in hopes that someone would let me stay a few more days. I was not ready to come home!

The day before I left for Mexico, I scratched both of my corneas. I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but it was actually a really scary thing to experience your vision getting steadily worse in both eyes over the course of a few hours until your sight is so bad, you can no longer read your cell phone.

So, after rushing to the eye doctor and generally freaking out all day, I ended the evening with icing my eyes. By the end of the day, I was so miserable and my eyes stung so badly that I looked like I was going through a horrible break up!

Yep, that's an ice pack covering my whole face to
relieve some of the inflammation...
I did make it to Mexico and my eyes were significantly better by morning. I was under strict orders not to wear my contacts or make-up and not to go swimming. Bummer. I still had an excellent time and I would love to go back!

The flight was uneventful as was going through customs in Mexico. The airport was fairly uncrowded and so immigration was a breeze. They also had samples of tequila in the duty free shop. I tried coffee flavored tequila, which was actually pretty good.

Why, yes, I will have a free shot of tequila!
Once we got to our resort, Secrets Maroma, we were greeted at check in with a glass of champagne.

This place is absolutely amazing. The rooms are fantastic and everything is included, so there are no additional fees. You can eat and drink as much as you like and trust me, we took full advantage of that.

Just look at the bathroom!

The room is huge!
I'm trying to take a glamour shot of myself.

We wandered around for awhile and checked things out. We spent a lot of time over the course of the weekend hanging out at this table that sits in about 8 inches of water and is right next to the bar.

There's also a ping pong table in the background.

These guys were everywhere! They were really cool. And huge!
Since this trip was sponsored by one of our vendors, we had a few group activities, like dinner. They set up a fancy buffet dinner on the beach for us which was really cool.

So nice...

After dinner that night, we went to the hotel's version of Zumanity which is a Cirque show with a little erotica thrown in. It was pretty cool but I will be honest, I had so many glasses of champagne at dinner that I had a hard time staying awake through it.

On the way back to the room, I spotted a raccoon!

We had to be up early the next day to head out to the Mayan ruins. Stay tuned for my recap of Chichen Itza! I took tons of pictures of that!


  1. I think each picture just got cooler and cooler as they went along! That table/chairs sitting in water?? Um, Awesome!!!! I suppose if I put my table and chairs into my 2.5 foot pool it probably wouldn't have the same effect.

  2. I was thinking the same thing... ;)
