I did so so SO SO much research for resorts, so much that I thought my eyeballs would melt out of my head. We used bookit.com and I highly recommend it, it was our first trip where something didn't go wrong and ran so smoothly.
We stayed at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun and it was wonderful. We were upgraded from a lagoon view to an ocean view room for no extra price and the room was very clean and updated.
The view of our resort from the beach.
This is the view lagoon side of the lobby of the resort, it's all open and beautiful! You can have that kind of stuff when it's never below 80 degrees year round.
This is the ocean view from our patio.
This trip was planned for more of a relaxing getaway, so we didn't want to spend much time away from the resort.
Monday the 12th we arrived and were done with check-in around 5 PM. We ate some dinner and waited for the evening show to start, a recreation of Micheal Jackson.
John's the one in the middle fighting the waves.
Wednesday we went para-sailing, something neither of us had done before. It was very fun, but really windy.
Like I said, it was WAY windy!
Looking down at the boat!
Thursday, our anniversary, was our busiest day. We took a submarine ride to see the fish in the morning, it was very nice even though half the boat got sick. We got a lot of pictures, but the fish are hard to see so I won't post any.
After the sub ride, we walked down to some ruins on the hotel zone strip. It was a 45 minute walk, so we took the bus back to the resort.
The ruins were really cool, but my favorite part was all the iguanas roaming the grounds. John is scared of them and I wanted to take one home!
This is where we had our massages, but it was in the evening.
After the massage, we had our dinner. It was magical! This isn't us eating since I forgot my camera, but this is exactly what it looked like. We watched cruise ships sail by and enjoyed the sea breeze.
Coming back to our room greeted us with a nice surprise. Happy anniversary to us!
Saturday we got up early to get to the airport and traveled home. Our house sitters and good friends, Jonessa and Derek, picked us up from the airport and took us home.
When Jonessa let the dogs out to see us they were more happy to see Derek and her. :) looks like Makoa added two more people to his little circle.
Winston was picked up from the boarding kennel later that evening.
It was such a nice, relaxing trip and John and I want to go back so badly!
