Cameron and I spent an incredible six days in Cancun at the beginning of April.  (No kids invited!) We stayed at Villa del Palmar and LOVED it. It was such a gorgeous resort.  It was way nicer than we anticipated.  Delicious food.  Beautiful room and view.  It was perfect! Neither of us had been to Cancun before.  We're in love!  I don't think anywhere could have more perfect weather.

We spent a couple days hanging around the resort--couples' massage in a hut (best massages we've ever had), time share presentation (to finance the couples' massage), lots of reading at the beach and pool, kayaking and paddle boarding at the beach (for the record-I'm way better at it than Cam), and lots of delicious meals.

We spent a good chunk of one day at Isla Mujeres, and island you take a ferry to.  We rented a golf cart for the day and drove around.  I think we had our best meal there--an amazing seafood plate.  And the view at the restaurant was seriously breathtaking.  We also visited Tortuga Land, which had all these turtles, sharks, and dolphins to look at.  Very fun (and hot!!!) day.

We spent another day at Xplor, a park with zip-lining, rafting, swimming in an underground river (which Cam made me do, even though it was freezing!), and amphibious vehicles. We don't have many pictures, but it was a BLAST.  The zip-lines were amazing.  There were 14 different lines we did; a few of them went through water.  Such a great day!

Such a wonderful trip.  I don't think we'd change a thing about it.  (Except for spending a small fortune on sunscreen at the resort. ;)

One of the restaurants had the BEST guacamole.  We got it three times.

Cam had a thing for these white turtles at Tortuga Land.

Our perfect lunch at Isla Mujeres.  It was on the tip of the island, so there was water on both sides of us.

Best. Lunch. Ever.
