5 Days in Mexico...Here we come!

This time tomorrow my hubby and I will be on plane headed to Cancun and I could not be more excited!! It has been about a year since we have had a beach vacation, which is very unusual for us.  We LOVE the beach and we absolutely LOVE Mexico.  Cancun is a short 2 hour flight from Houston and it is so beautiful there!

I know many people don't want to go to Mexico because of what you see and hear in the news and we have gotten lectured by numerous people who think we are crazy for going.  Well, we have been to Mexico 6 times in the past 5 years and we have never once felt unsafe.  But, we are not idiots either.  We do not get in random taxi's on the side of the road...we don't drink too much then decide to take a walk down the beach or in a back alley.  We are smart.  We mostly stay at our resort and when we do leave we with with a big group on an excursion that is arranged by the resort.  Cancun and some of the other touristy spots in Mexico are safe for the most part.  Yes, if you make dumb choices then you are definitely putting yourself in danger.  We love Mexico so much so it makes us sad that so many people don't want to go because of the news.  Mexico is so beautiful, close to the US and the people in the towns are friendly and welcoming!  But thanks to the drug cartels, people are terrified if they go, they will not come home.  But if you have some common sense and be cautious you will be just fine!  
So, if you are looking for a fun, tropical vacation, please consider Mexico! =)

While I am laying on the beach sipping pina coladas and margaritas (not to rub it in or anything) I have two great friends, Myra and Jen , guest posting for me! So, make sure to check back in for their posts!

We plan on laying out A LOT, spending a day at XCaret, possibly scuba diving one day, getting massages and facials, eating alot, consuming some fruity tropical drinks, touring Mayan Ruins and of course, celebrating our first year of marriage! 

If you need us, you can find us here-

Check back in next week for a full recap of our trip! 

I've been up to my neck workin 6 days a week
Wearin holes into the shoes on my feet
Been dreamin of gettin away since I don't know
Aint no better time than now..for mexico

No shoes, no shirt, no problems
Blues what blues..hey I forgot them
The sun and the sand and a drink in my hand with no bottom
And no shirt, no shirt, and no problems!
No problems

Want a towel on a chair in the sand by the sea
Want to look thru my shades and see you there with me
Want to soak up life for a while
In laid back mode
No boss, no polite, no stress, no dress code

No shoes, no shirt, no problems
Blues what blues hey I forgot them
The sun and the sand and a drink in my hand with no bottom
And no shoes, no shirt, and no problems

Babe lets get packed..tank tops and flip flops if u got them
No shoes, no shirt, no problems
No problems.

ahh!! SO. MUCH. FUN!! I hope you guys have the best time :) i was in cancun last month for work, and after i was done with my meetings i had 2 of my girlfriends come down and meet me for a relaxing long weekend at the resort. it was gorgeous and we loved every second of it. i second what you said- as long as you are safe and make smart choices (aka no random taxis!), cancun is certainly not the most dangerous place.

what resort are yall staying at?? we were at le blanc.. i am already dreaming of going back HAHA!
