What To Do In Cancun Mexico!

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.

Activities: Beach 

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.

Cons: SUNBURN!

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 ❤

Traveling To Nassau, Bahamas

My vacation finally arrived and let me just say, it was beautiful!

One of the things I was looking forward to the most was the clear blue water the Bahamas has to offer, and I wasn’t disappointed! IMG_8770

My friends and I stayed at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort and this was the view from our room!

I’m jealous of the people that get to wake up to this on a daily basis. IMG_8774

We spent everyday on the beach. Tanning, swimming and some more swimming.

The ocean was the best part, clean warm water and white sand.

Lots of people sold clothing, bracelets, drinks and were even selling hair braiding on the beach.IMG_8814IMG_8785Fresh coconut drinks and a lot of other juices, and don’t forget the rum = BAHAMA-MAMA

The drink of choice!

It did rain a little bit when we were there, but it never lasted longer then 2o minutes and right after the sun would come out. So, most of the time we just stayed on the beach and waited. We had our swim suits on anyway who cares if we got even more wet, ha!IMG_8815

One thing we really wanted to try was snorkeling! We went on a boat to a private island and saw some fish! Some were white, almost clear, and others were blue with yellow, so cute. It was pretty cool, I did get a little motion sickness but sometimes you just gotta suck it up and still make the best of it! IMG_8832IMG_8878

It was one of the most relaxing trips I’ve been on and I didn’t have a care in the world, but I’m sure the drinks and getting a massage on the beach helped that, haha!Image-8

Everyone was so nice at the resort and just the locals in general. They were all just happy to be living life and talking to new people and were all about having a good time.

When you live in New York you forget about that sometimes, and this was definitely a good reminder to slow down and just be happy about the little things in life.

BeachWear For The Bahamas

On the 16th of July, my two girlfriends and I are making our way to the Bahamas!

So, you know what that means. Shopping for the sun! We’re going for 5 days and I figured that two swim suits would be enough, but I’m sure in the next couple weeks if I see a cute one, I’m going to end up buying it. Because lets face it, sometimes I have zero will power haha.

The 1st one-piece I bought was this cute blue one from Old Navy . It comes with removable halter top straps, so no tan lines, yay! It also has an open back which adds a little extra something since everything else is so simple.

Next, I bought this peachy pink one-piece also from Old Navy. This one is really simple, it covers the back and has spaghetti straps that you can adjust to make tighter or more lose.

Both swim suits are great, the only thing I would suggest is to definitely try them on first! I found that they run a little small. Also if you have a bigger cup size these might not work for you, because there’s not that much support.

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.38.57 PMThe last thing I picked up from Old Navy was this really cool boho cover up. I love the dip dyed effect it has, and it’s so easy to slip on and off at the beach.

I have a really sensitive scalp, so for me to go to tropical places like the Bahamas I HAVE to buy a hat and wear it most of the time or my head will be burnt and in pain for days! H&M has some really great inexpensive hats that can easily fold up and store in a beach bag.

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.25.00 PMLast but not least, sunglasses! We all have to protect our eyes from the sun, so why not look cute while doing it? I always buy mine from Urban Outfitters. They have great unique styles for a pretty affordable price. These were only $16.00! Maybe now I won’t feel so bad when I lose them in the ocean like I do every summer, haha.

Hope this helps all my traveling friends this summer! Enjoy the sun and be lazy in the sand.
