Well it took us 15 years to finally get away on our own again, but we did it. I consider it our
second honeymoon. We just got back from 8 days in paradise , Riviera Maya.
We went with three other couples and had a really great time. We will be back.This is my favourite photo from our trip , it sums it all up , we were so relaxed and fell into vacationing so easily. It rained a bunch for the first three days but not constantly. It didn't dampen our fun even a little. After that the weather was incredible.
We went jet skiing , that was certainly the most fun we had , I would do that again and again, its a great arm workout. My arms are still sore today.
Who doesn't need a new mask? The sales pitches were quite humorous. After the vendor of the stand heard me notice the whips she said " romantic whips!!" hmmm let me ponder that "no , I'm good"
We were called honeymooners, and once someone sized me up and called me "Texas" close , Canadian.
I was almost amazed that I could still fit into this dress for our last dinner in Mexico after I lost 22 lbs to go on this trip. Somehow I didn't gain much back, all those long walks on the beach and in town I guess really helped things not get too far away from me. I'm back on track now and back to reality.
It was so rough relaxing under palm trees and enjoying the ocean views.
The biggest problem was where to enjoy our time , the beach, the pool , the swim up bar or the resorts down the beach , how do you decide... then the mammoth task of where to eat at the many restaurants...so many problems ....
We will miss the Riu Palace and certainly Ricky Bobby ... couples massages on the beach , jet skiing on the ocean , the ocean , the sand the friends, the pools , not worrying about much of anything, constant delivery of drinks and all the friendly warm staff , Adios..
This was our first visit but not our last.
Next time we go we will bring the kids they will love it too.
