Flashback Friday: My Trip To Mexico!

-continued from my Trip To Mexico post-


I spent last Christmas in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. On Christmas day we had breakfast on the beach. It was so hot and humid, but beautiful! That's my sister, isn't she a babe? She has always been the skinny one, that lucky B!


After breakfast we went to Tulum. Tulum is the ruin site of a Mayan walled city situated on a cliff. It was really a sight to see! All of the doors are so little, they were a lot smaller back then. It was built really well to still be around. 


After Tulum we went to snorkel at Grand Cenote. I loved snorkeling in the cenotes, which are basically naturally formed sinkhole caves filled with fresh water. I loved it so much I kept choosing to visit different ones. At Grande Cenote we even saw a fresh water turtle. It was cute. 


Afterward we went to a nice seafood restaurant right on the beach. 


The fish they serve is fresh caught locally. We shared the worlds biggest lobster. I felt kinda bad afterward, but it was yummy and it once in a lifetime treat! 


Another fun thing we did was visit Aktun Chen which was a natural park with caves and underground rivers. They also have animals there too. 


This sweet little monkey loved the ladies and came to sit right on our laps. He was so cute! 


On this trip I also got to snorkel in the ocean for the first time. This was in Akumal Bay. The water is so warm and clear there so it was easy to see all of the sea life. We got to see sea turtles, sting rays and some little tiny sharks. It was really fun! 


We also went to Xplor, where we took a paddle boat ride through an underground river and went ziplining. It was a lot of fun! We also enjoyed taking some silly photos. My this time my legs were covered in bruises from all of the crazy stuff we were doing. I had to include that funny photo of me swimming under a waterfall. So much water. Water water everywhere! 


We also spent some time just sunbathing and swimming. I spent a lot of time in a swimsuit, so these posts have lots of pics of that. Sorry about that! I don't have a perfect figure, I am a work in progress! 


My favorite restaurant we went to was Alux, which is in a cave. I really like caves, can you tell? The cave was flooded from recent rains, so it made it ever cooler! The food was really good, but we really went there for the ambiance. 


Lots and lots of eating! Lots of places had healthy options, like green juice and smoothies, which I appreciated. 


Another thing we did (twice) was to visit La Bodeguita Del Medio. It is a cuban restaurant with yummy food, the best mojitos and salsa dancing. It was sooooo hot in there, but we had a blast drinking and dancing! 


Thank you all for letting me share my trip with you. I know it is not music related, but it was a great life experience that I wanted to relive! 

XOXO
