Cocktails, Sun, Beach, Pool, Mexican food? For 4 nights? With Alex? YES PLEASE.

I actually love flying out of Gatwick, and so happy I now have my super preference because I get beaut trips like this one. We didn't really do much on this trip other than eat drink and sunbathe. I mean that's all you really want out of a holiday. (Holiday for Alex) Work for me.... well the flight out was. The 4 nights in the resort definitely was not.


We must of took like 200 photos on this trip, if you've never been to Mexico. Think about it, a few people have messaged me on Instagram asking for ideas for holidays and I always recommend cancun. It has a bit of everything for everyone. If you want to laze around on the beach or by the pool you can if you want to go and explore and do something exciting and get your adrenaline going you can, if you want to go out out at night, you can! Better night life than Vegas I think.. honestly so much to do and its gorgeous.

Hence the millions of photos... I definitely spammed my instagram feed.. sorry!

The first night we went across the road to the garage to get some cheap beers (keeping it classy) then sat round the pool with some of the crew with them before having to call it a night. Jet lag problems.
The next morning, and all the other mornings we were up early enough to walk down to the beach and watch the most gorgeous sunrise... that day was a beach day, again like every other day! Either pool or beach, but we sunbathed and chilled every day. Occasional trip to the strip..

The weather was gorgeous! We was very lucky as the weather app was saying we might get cloud.. we did get rain on the 2nd day for about 10 minutes so Alex and I just went into the hot tub, whilst everyone ran for cover... I mean, your wet already?

That evening we went to Harry's Steakhouse for dinner, which was delicious! And only a good 10 minute walk from the hotel, towards the strip... so easy to find, I would say to book a table before hand though! And get a table for outside. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was amazing.

They even bring out this MASSIVE pink candy floss.. which made me feel like a child again - so good.

Day 2:

Up nice and early and off to the beach to watch the sunrise and have some breakfast, before again another day of doing sweet F all.. ah bliss! However we did have a little wonder to the strip for lunch walked around the market stalls and bars before finding a beach club for lunch. Good music, good vibes, good food. Not even that pricey either! This was right next to CoCo Bongos!

That evening we went to the Restaurant Crab House opposite the hotel over looking the lagoon, this was stunning and again great food! Alex can't eat shell fish, so both the restaurants ive recommended are perfect for non fish eaters too!

We didin't see any crocs though... shame, Alex even through his bread roll into the lagoon in hope one might come, but maybe the crocs don't eat bread???

This was an absolute BEAUT of a day, we just drunk cocktails and beers in the sun played in the waves and went on mini adventures around cancun. I seriously burnt myself this day though, the bra straps on the way home were NOT my friend.

This evening we booked a over water hut over the lagoon at a Thai. Called Thai Lounge. We were blown away with how stunning this place was, you HAVE to book though, If you want the water huts, but why would you not want to be in a private hut for dinner? We booked the table for 6pm just in time for the sunset at 6:30. Beautiful. So romantic.

Day 4: 

The last day.... which made me so sad! If only every trip was like this one was. However we made the most of the day, check out was 5:35-6:35 which meant we had pretty much the whole day again! So off to the beach for sunrise we went, then we set up our sunbeds on the beach and that's were we stayed all day long... tanning it up, relaxing. Alex had a few beers however it was the diet coke and mocktails for me as for obvious reasons I couldn't drink!

It was then time to go to the room, shower, chill out pack and get ready for work. Another night flying across the globe back home. I left Alex on the beach for a hour as he didn't need as long as me to get ready, lucky bugger. But I used the time to shower wash my hair and slowly do my make up on the balcony whilst taking in the views. (This beer is not mine) - before anyone questions it!

The flight home wasnt too bad, we were pretty full but lovely passengers and quite simple, services done and off to break. 8 hours flight time which for a Cancun is really good, bumpy as hell though! But meant landing back home soon enough for a 30 minute nap on the sofa which turned into a 4 hour nap and then my mummas roast dinner.
