I just got back from my 5 day trip with my friends in Cancun, Mexico and I wanted to share some of my experiences and activities I did there.
Resort: The Oasis Palm
Pros: This is an all inclusive resort so that means food and drinks are included, which is great because going away and buying 3 meals a day can really add up. There were 2 pools and they also had a great kid section if you travel with kids. The resort was right on the beach so all you had to do was grab a towel and jump right in!
Cons: Some things I didn’t like about this resort was little things were extra money. For example, the safe in your room and also the sodas in the mini refrigerator. They had a gift shop in the resort which was pretty pricey if you needed to buy extra sunscreen, meds, etc.
Pros: The first and probably most popular thing to do in Cancun is to enjoy the beaches! The sand is white and the water is clear and blue what else could you ask for?! So get yourself a drink and lay out and enjoy the sun.
Sailing: Isla Mujeres Luxury Sailing
Pros: My favorite thing we did on this trip took a boat to the island Isla Mujeres. We got to snorkel in the middle of the ocean before getting to the island. We saw the most beautiful tropical fish and also an underwater museum! After that, we were given lunch and drinks on the boat before docking and exploring the island. We were given 2 1/2 hours to do our own thing on the island, we rented golf carts and motorbikes and set off to see what this island had to offer. The island was filled with shops, people and street art. After that, we went back on our boat for some swimming, paddle boarding and drinks. On our way back to dock we got to witness the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen so if you do this make sure you get the later time because you won’t regret it!
Cons: It seems like a lot of tourists go here so things can be a little pricey if you want to buy some things at the shops but you can definitely haggle to get a lower price.
Water Park: XEl-HA
Pros: We took an hour and a half car ride to Xel-Há in Riviera Maya to experience a natural water park. They offer so many activities for everyone to do. We snorkeled, swam in caves, cliff jumped and even enjoyed floating around in a lazy river. The food and drinks are also included at this park as well!
Cons: Its a lot of walking! After lunch, my friends and I had to rest because our feet were hurting from not having water shoes and walking for so long. But they do have hammocks where you can lay out and maybe even take a nap!
Overall I had a great time in Mexico and really enjoyed seeing a new exciting place ❤
