MEXICO 2011

I think it goes without saying that vacations are amazing.  Being able to get away from the busy, hectic, wired everyday chaos and allowing yourself to unplug and relax is the best thing ever.

Mexico was truly an incredible destination for our vacation this year.  If you know me at all, you know that I am an extremely cheap frugal person.  When Daniel and I were looking for a fun getaway for this summer, we were originally thinking just a quick drive down to the beach for a few nights.  However, as we were adding up the cost, the total kept growing and growing (groceries, condo, dinner, ridiculously high gas prices, etc), so we decided to check into some other options.  My friend Kathy put together an amazing deal for us at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico (including airfare, transportation to and from the resort, and travel insurance) for a fantastically lower price than our “quick beach trip” was going to cost us.  I think we hesitated about .371 seconds before agreeing and putting down a deposit on our trip.

We stayed at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, and I have nothing but good things to say about this resort (honestly!).  The restaurants, the food, the beach, the staff, the service, the room, the view….it was all perfect!

Enough talk – check out the pictures (please forgive me for my poor photography skills).

*I honestly meant to take pictures of all my food, and I would set out my camera at each meal before the food arrived, but then the food would get there…and I forgot all about my camera.  Oops!
