Now that we’re about two months removed from our most recent trip to Mexico, why not take a look back and reminisce by way of a review of the resort we stayed in? The Unico 20°87°Hotel Riviera Maya was our home-away-from-home for an all-too-short five nights around New Year’s this year and we had a […]

Well, 2020 is here and Mexico is behind us. I still don’t get the temporal physics of how time passes by so much more quickly while on vacation, but as I always say, if you don’t ever come back from a vacation, then you can’t take another one. So now that I’m back from this […]

It may be the last night of our Mexican getaway, but is it too early to start reminiscing about the trip? I didn’t think so! And since my legs are still feeling the thousands of steps I walked on yesterday’s day trip, now seems like a good time to recap it. First up is Coba, […]

Happy New Year, all! Hope you’re all enjoying the beginning of 2020 with fun, family, friends, and relaxation. What am I doing? I’m in Mexico! I’ve actually been here for a few days (and am going home tomorrow – booooo!) with Scott and three of our friends, but as was the case with my previous […]

I’ve already been home from Mexico for two weeks. How did that happen?? I guess time soldiers on, as it always does, so now it’s spring (hooray!), the weather has improved at home (though it is snowing as I write this post), and I’ve already been thinking about more trips. No surprise there! However, before […]

Just a quick update to share some great news – our towels were returned to us! After having three of our towels disappear earlier this week, we were delighted when the front desk had them yesterday! We had already checked with them a few times to no avail, but they said they found “three multicolored […]

I feel like I never have much to share on these beachy vacations, so consider this a quick update on our trip thus far. 🙂 Things are going well! The GR Solaris continues to be a good resort (and definitely continues to be better than the Oasis Sens!) and we’re all having a good time […]

We’re in Mexico! Of course, those of you who can read Spanish already knew that from the title. 🙂 We made it safely to Cancun yesterday after a fairly uneventful flight (unless you count the guy across the aisle from me who brought his own supply of mini liquor bottles with him on the plane […]

Now that Mexico 2014 is over, I wanted to put together a review of the resort we stayed at, the Oasis Sens Cancún. I’ll preface this review with a caveat – I’ve never stayed at an all-inclusive resort before, so I have no basis for comparison. Additionally, I know service and building standards vary widely […]

If you’ve done multiple loads of laundry, picked up your dog from the sitter, and wished you had more/better food in the house, you may have just gotten back from a vacation! I know those are all things I’ve experienced in the last 24 hours, at least! In case you haven’t already figured it out, […]
