I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of our trip to Mexico! Life just never slows down, except when you’re on vacation…which is probably why we enjoyed our trip so much!
We stayed at the Grand Oasis Cancun Resort. It was a great all-inclusive deal that I found through an online travel agency. One thing we learned during this trip is that all-inclusive is the way to go. It made the vacation so much more enjoyable and relaxing to be able to stay in one place the entire time. Everything we needed was available. Food, drink, snacks, beach chairs, and entertainment were free of charge. You just can’t beat that.
The little pond out front had these beautiful lilly pad flowers.
The hotel was very pretty inside and kept very clean. The staff was super friendly and helpful. No complaints about the hotel. Here are a few pics of our room.
I loved the art in this hotel—it was everywhere. This painting was in our room.
A unique feature of the hotel—the resident peacock!
The beach wasn’t the best I’ve ever seen—but it wasn’t a problem or anything. The hotel is just right next to the Marina and the beach itself was pretty short. No problems with not finding beach chairs or a spot in the shade if we wanted it though! I even had the best nap of my life on a beach chair in the shade, with the sea breeze and relaxing music playing in the background. It was heaven.
The Grand Oasis Palm had two beautiful pools. One benefit of staying at the Oasis Resorts chain is that you can visit any of the numerous resorts in Cancun for the day—everything all-inclusive except a room. We stayed put at the Grand Oasis Palm though since we weren’t there for too long.
They had numerous all-inclusive restaurants and we enjoyed them all! We got turned away from one because hubby had shorts on—so we never got to try that one, which was disappointing. But the food was fabulous. I couldn’t get enough fresh papaya, pineapple, and mango! And the flan—oh how I miss the flan!
This was our first trip to Mexico and our first time to visit another country while not on a cruise. It was a really great experience. We can’t wait to visit other parts of the world!
There were the most beautiful flowers there and I discovered my new favorite flower ever. Absolutely gorgeous. I saw these in numerous colors, but my favorite were the bright pink with the little white flowers in the center.
We took a quick walk in the jardin del arte. Saw some interesting things!
Here we are all tan. I miss that tan! We tried to use the timer to take a picture.
And on our last evening, we took a short stroll on the beach. Beautiful at sunset.
Looking forward to our next trip!
