When is the last time you went on vacation? The 90’s? Hopefully not! Maybe you feel you are too busy at work or don’t have enough money, but you probably actually cannot afford to not go on vacation. Vacations reduce stress, promote creativity, stave off burnout and strengthen bonds between you and your family and friends. Cancun, Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya are outstanding destinations where you can find adventure and history, or just sit back and relax. So find something to celebrate and go on vacation!

Birthday

Feliz cumpleaños! A vacation is the perfect way to celebrate a new year of your life! Hotels and restaurants love to help you celebrate, so whisper to your waiter or concierge that it’s your special day (or better yet have your partner or friend tell them) then sit back and wait for the candles, cake and singing.

Anniversary

Maybe you are about to celebrate dating for a year, or being married for twenty. Either way, a getaway is a great way to celebrate your anniversary. Escape your daily tasks and choose a romantic all inclusive beach resort in the Riviera Maya where you will have time to concentrate only on relaxing and having fun with your partner.

Friendship

Going on a vacation with friends is always fun. It’s a great way to celebrate a long time friendship or to get to know a new friend better. You will have a blast planning together and exchanging ideas. Or even better, travel with a large group of friends.

New Job

Congratulations! You are about to start a new job, or maybe even a new career. What better way to recharge than a vacation? Take a little time off between your previous and new job and jump start your work ethic and creativity.

New Family Member

Think you can’t travel with a baby? You might want to wait until they’re 6 months old, but after that, it’s very easy to travel with a little one, and what better way to strengthen family bonds than take a fun vacation together? Plus, the airline will gate check your stroller for you, you won’t have to pay for an extra ticket for your baby because he/she can sit on your lap, and most resorts provide portable cribs.

    My best memory is my last trip to Cancun in July 2010 (for our anniversary). I went with my boyfriend Craig and we stayed at the Royal Sands. What an amazing hotel and City! I had won a dinner for two at the Aqua Hotel through Facebook as well because I was the 50,000 fan on the Cancun page. Couldn’t believe it! Dinner was amazing and so was our trip. We visited Isla Muerjes and rode jet skis for the first time. We were there a week but definitely wanted to stay a lot longer. We also did the romantic evening dinner cruise which was amazing with the saxophone player. This trip was exactly what we needed and brought the two of us so much closer as we were building new experiences with each other. Definitely planning a trip back VERY SOON!
