Trevor and I got married a little over 4 years ago and we went to the best place for our honeymoon. It's called Secrets Maroma Beach. Since the day we left we always said that we wanted to go back and this was the perfect year to do just that!
We also didn't just want to go by ourselves, we wanted to experience it with friends. So we invited a few people that we thought we would have an amazing time with. My brother Wes and his girlfriend Katy decided to come and our friends from our Lifegroup Shelby and Chapman joined us as well. Although the other two couples had not met before, I was not worried at all. Everyone is super laid back and it was the perfect combination of people. We left last Wednesday, July 1st and returned last night, July 6th. It was the most perfect 6 days!
We left Tulsa around 8am and we were in Cancun about 1pm. Shelby and Chapman (I'll probably refer to them as the Barlow's) all had the exact same flight from Tulsa to Dallas and then Dallas to Houston. Wes and Katy were coming from DC. Their morning did not run as smooth as ours. When they got to the airport, they found out that their flight had been reschedule and they had missed their flight. Luckily, they were able to catch a different flight from DC to Miami and then Miami to Cancun. Crazy enough, we all got off our airplanes at exactly the same time and ended up just running into each other in the terminal! Seriously could not have planned that any better since our phones don't exactly work there. When we got to the resort we checked in, headed to our rooms and put our bathing suits on.
The next morning we ate some breakfast at the World Café. They have delicious omelets
After a lot of time in the sun I took a little siesta in the room and then came back out and headed to the beach. Seriously, this was such a relaxing vacation. I loved every minute of it.
It never fails that I always get some crazy tan line and I'm really not sure how this one happened other than, maybe I touched my leg after putting on sun screen! Thankfully it all blended over the next couple days!
That night we had signed up for the XPLOR excursion. The Barlow's did this same excursion on their honeymoon and said it was a lot of fun; however, they did it during the day so we decided to change it up a bit and try it at night. We had so much fun! They have ziplines, amphibious vehicles, underground rafts, and underground rivers. None of the pictures were great, but we tried to take some! The ziplines were a lot of fun and on some of them you got to go as a couple. My favorite was probably the amphibious vehicles, but you are only allowed to do those twice. The raft was probably my least favorite and it was really neat to swim through the underground river.
First up: *Massages* It.was.amazing!!
Then we headed to the pool to meet up with everyone. Right when we got in the pool a little American Parade started happening around the pool. It was all of the cooks and staff delivering an American feast - mini cheeseburgers, popcorn, corndogs (
It was definitely a fun day celebrating America in Mexico!
That evening we got all dressed up and headed to dinner at the Italian Restaurant called Portofino.
