Mexico Bound For The Holidays

It’s been a week since I  returned from sunny Punta Mita, Mexico and I’m already missing it! I traveled there for my friend’s wedding and this time I took my boyfriend Tom with me <3  It was such a fun trip! We stayed at a private Resort Villa right by a golf course and the had the beautiful beach steps away. I had been wanting to take my boyfriend to Mexico fro a while now and this was the perfect occasion! It was 5 days of just relaxing at the beach clubs with spicy margaritas, all the while enjoying the view of the Sierra Madre palm tree-lined mountains that frame the bay. Really the best vacation ever!

I am happy to say that it was beautiful this time of year! While it’s true that this part of Mexico is year round beach weather, it’s the months of November through April that are the best to visit. You get the warm sunny days without the excessive humidity or the threat of heavy rain (which are months July to early September). Just perfect to enjoy some paddle boarding, surfing or snorkelling if you wish. But I must confess I did none of the above, guilty I know! Tom and some of the other guys in the group did give it a try, maybe next time I’ll put down the margaritas and be more adventurous, but for this trip all I wanted was to enjoy the company and relax with a good book.. side note! I’ve been reading Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes lately and I’ve been loving it, but anyways back to my travels…

The entire trip I wore nothing but comfy summer-like dresses and bikinis, who does that in November, right?? This is why I’ve always loved the weather back home.


This is the view of my charming seaside little hometown, Puerto Vallarta.



This is St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, it is such a relaxing and luxurious hotel. I loved everything about this place and let me tell you the food here as amazing!! *Order the Octopus Tostadas, they are to die for! I enjoyed mine under the palm trees while laying in the lounge area. But the best part? I got to enjoy it with him. Out of all the good things that have happened to me in the last year, the thing I am most grateful for is this guy right here. His patience, love and support mean so much to me:) I am the happiest and my only wish is that we get to go back soon!





All in all, one of my favorite trips ever. Until next year when we go back for more adventures, I will keep the memories of this trip very close to me and feel grateful for everything I got to enjoy! Hope your holidays are filled with fun and loving moments like this one, best wishes!
