Viva Cancún! I just got back from a week long trip in Mexico and it was SO much fun! It was my first time in Cancún and I'm not going to lie I was a little nervous going there. When I told everyone at home I was going everyone's first response was "Oh, you're going to Mexico? Be careful!" or "Don't drink the water!!". It made me a bit hesitant but when I got there and saw how beautiful and nice everyone was, all my hesitations went out the door!
We stayed at a resort, The Grand Park Royal Cancún, and it was beautiful! The staff was amazing and very friendly, and yes I did drink the water (at the resort) and I was perfectly fine! It was an all inclusive resort so we had the most delicious meals and unlimited drinks and sunshine! If you get to Cancún and stay at the Grand Park, I recommend eating at the Italian and Oriental restaurants. They were the best out of all places to eat on the resort. Oh and definitely get to the Oriental Restaurant on "kabob night".....the BEST! As far as drinks, order the 'Iceberg' - it's a beer with a margarita on top. So good!
The entertainment staff there provided us with activities all day long like beach volleyball, pool races, competition days, and lots of laughs! Not to mention the Michael Jackson Tribute night......so entertaining! I know it sounds a little childish but honestly, they were one of the best parts of the trip! I would recommend this hotel just because of the entertainment team!
We spent the days relaxing by the pool, drinking margaritas, jet skiing, getting relaxing massages, and playing games at the pool. Overall, Cancún was not as scary as everyone made it out to be! By the end we knew we had a successful trip because of two things: the staff remembered our names, and our drink orders!! I definitely want to go back and explore more parts of Mexico outside of the resort. Look through the gallery below for more photos from the trip and stay tuned for a video of our little family vacation!
