It is gonna be summer time before you know it. The reason why I wanna blog about this. Just to give you guys an idea on where to head for the season.
And being it Cinco de Mayo today. We learned that was the Mexican victory over French men.
Coming to Cancun, Mexico was the most relaxing vacation we have been too as a family. We really enjoyed it!!
We went there September 2014 for my birthday. Since it is off peak I was able to book it on a cheaper price. Since that is the start of the hurricane season for the Caribbean.
If you will be traveling with kids. There are a lot of choices of hotels where you can choose from. I suggest get the all inclusive ones so you do not have to pay for anything that you wanna eat in the hotel for the rest of your stay there.
We stayed at Grand Oasis palm, this hotel is family friendly. The staff was nice and helpful. The food was good and the good about our stash there was. Mexico was celebrating their Independence Day. We have the same birthday!! So the hotel had a feast and they had different shows for the guest and some free stuff.
Another reason why I chose Cancun was because we can do a side trip to see the Chichen Itza, one of the 7 wonders of the world. It was in my bucket list.
Before our trip, I already booked everything online as far as the transportation And the tour guide. I booked it using orbitz and chose the grayline. They have a very helpful and friendly staff. And they are always on time. Their vans were very convenient to ride on. It was so convenient specially we were traveling with our kids. They give free bottled water too.
The travel time from Cancun to the Chichen Itza was 3 hours back and forth. So be prepared for that ride if you wish to go there. We were able to hear the stories about the Mayans. Which became very famous for that 2012 prediction end of the world.
It was such a nice experience. It was like an educational field trip for us visiting the Mayan ruins. The beach was of course relaxing. They have different restaurants there to choose from. They also have the kids club where you can leave your kids if you wanna stroll with your partner. They also have baby sitters if you prefer that. We just had our daughter stayed at the kids club. She really enjoyed it because there were a lot of kids too.
I recommend this trip if you are planning to have some getaway with your family, specially if you will be traveling with kids.
