Elefantes en México

Hola Hive!!  Mr. E and I just got back from our honeymoon in Mexico and it was AMAZING!!

With all of the anticipation leading up to the honeymoon it was safe to say that I was packed days before we left last Saturday.  Mama E & Daddy E dropped us off bright and early at the airport (and watched little Gypsy for the week, thanks guys!) and after what seemed like forever in the American airlines line (because I needed to change my passport number in their system) we were off!

We arrived at the resort, Excellence Playa Mujeres, before the 3 pm check in time but were happy to kill time  with martinis and lunch above the pool with a view of the ocean.

Mr. E may have had a little bit of jet lag while waiting for our room buzzer to go off, but the room did not disappoint! 

Love that he still has a drink in his hand

We opted for a 2 story room with a roof top terrace, and loved the views from both balconies! 

Second story with private pool

View of spa from the bottom deck

View of the ocean from the back of our second balcony

Our week consisted of a lot of pool time

As well as some time at the beach.

This was our first time at an all inclusive hotel and it was so nice to be able to drink and eat whenever and whatever we liked (of course now that we're back it's time to get back to the gym).

Breakfast on our balcony

Dinner at the Indian restaurant 

Dessert at the Italian restaurant

Dinner at the French restaurant

Hibachi at Spice

We also enjoyed dinner on the beach one night.  It was a little dark by the time the 3rd and 4th courses came out but it was still fun times.

Knowing Mr. E, I knew that he would get just a little bored with a whole week of relaxation so we did do a couple of fun activities, which I'll share with you in the second half of our honeymoon recap!

Are you looking forward to trying new foods on your honeymoon?
