Summer Getaway: Cancun

Hi There!

          Hope everyone’s week is going great. Im finally back from my little trip to Cancun and I’ve been dying to share it with you…

This summer I’ve been taking short trips to different parts of Mexico and its been a lot of fun. To be honest, my original plan for this summer was a bit different but things never go as we wish them to. But even though I’ve been really sad about it, I still had the opportunity to visit my beautiful country, so Im grateful for that and I’ve tried to make the most of it  ❤ I don’t know if it was the tropical weather, the crystal clear water or maybe the fact that I got to see my family, but somehow this trip felt like a big giant hug. With that in mind, I know that traveling to touristy places can be tricky but since I grew up there I still have a few favorite spots that I love to visit;) For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area I have a few tips:

Isla mujeres is a lovely island to spend the day, I like Lancheros Beach. It has the most translucent water known to mankind, you get to swim with whale sharks which I’ve done before in Cabo and was amazing, now imagine the experience in the clearest water! Plus you’ll find the underwater museum which I have yet to try –if my sensitive ears will allow it.

If you’re going to do the whole natural park thing I absolutely recommend Xcaret! It is such an amazing place, you get to visit beautiful animals, swim in underground rivers and caves, enjoy the beach, get to explore and learn about the mayan town and the night show is a must.. this last one represents Mexico’s culture 100%, I love it! Don’t waste you time with Xel-Ha, its not as big or beautiful, there’s way less things to do and its a longer drive. Xplore is not my favorite but if you’ve tried one park and are looking to continue the experience I would go for this one instead;)

Cenote Dos Ojos is a natural swimming whole with rocky sides, much like a cave. Its gorgeous to explore, bring snorkel equipment, its a bit of drive but its really beautiful! Tulum is full of natural cenotes, so you have plenty of options this is just one of them.

I’ll post more photos and tips in the near future but for now I’ll share with you some of my favs from this trip! With such beauty around me I was inspired to wear all white for this trip to let the beautiful greens stand out;) The first is a beach cover up with embroidered flowers on the sides that I simply loved, its so fresh and comfortable to wear, perfect for a quick getaway. The second outfit is a white linen dress for a day, a lifesaver for any vacation spot you visit;) And the third outfit is my favorite, denim + stripes, this basic goes perfect with a day at sea…
