Mexico or Bust!

We bit the bullet, and booked our honeymoon!!!!
2 days after we get married
we will be heading to the Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico!
For 8 days and 7 nights!

We are staying at the Excellence Riviera Maya
on a secluded white sand beach
in a jr. suite ocean front room
with a private balcony
and four poster king bed!

One of the beautiful features of the resort is the amount of water. There are so many large pools you could swim from one end to the other without really getting out of the water! They also have these hammocks everywhere floating over the water! I can just see myself sipping a beverage and swinging in the breeze with Spencer in the hammock right next to me!

We are also going to be part of the preferred club.
Early chech-in, private pools, private beach area with beach concierge, full stocked bar (im talking liters) in the room, and upgraded bathroom stuff!

As a special extra for honeymooners, we get the honeymoon package!
Champagne breakfast in bed, 50 minute couples massage in the beautiful lavender scented spa retreat, dinner on the beach, fresh fruit each morning and petit fours on our pillows!!

...and as if all of that wasn't enough!!!
8 gourmet resturaunts (one serving lobster!)
10 bars
live shows like a Michael Jackson show and island cirque du soleil!
Dancing and cooking lessons
windsurfing, catamaran tours, snorkling...
....sigh...I just can't wait!!!!
Only 6 months to go!
See you soon Mexico!


PS- For those of you who don't know, I was booking our honeymoon the day I was laid off... waiting for our travel agent to call me back, and give her the card number. Since my layoff it's been a bit of a sore spot. While Spencer and I were dating I never dreamed about what our wedding would be like like most girls do. I wanted to plan the wedding together, and so when I started thinking about our wedding day, I would instead think of the beautiful honeymoon we would take together and the amazing moment of seeing Spencer view the ocean for the first time! I am so excited to take this trip with him I can barely contain the excitement! I just know its going to be sooo amazing!!!!!

That area is gorgeous! We had so much fun in the Riviera Maya last year. The hotel looks AMAZING!

You will have a blast! I was suppose to go last year for my girlfriends destination wedding and then the good ole' swine flu hit and ruined everything.

We ended up going to Jamaica, so I can't complain. But I hope to make it back to Mexico soon.

Did I read that right that Spencer has never seen the Ocean??

That's awesome! I think a guy I use to work with is going to the same place for his honeymoon in June.

We were suppose to go to the Riviera Maya last year for a vacation but we changed it last minute to Jamaica b/c that's when the whole Swine Flu outbreak happened. Hopefully we'll make it there one day.

You're going to have an AMAZING TIME!
