Many of you know that when it comes to travel, I love “living like a local” and often stay in Airbnbs. I like to experience the culture and do plenty of research to find all of the local hidden gems. Whether it was my epic winter trip to Alaska or this July’s nature getaway in Colorado, taking time to research and create an itinerary is one of my favorite things to do.
A few weeks ago this all changed when Dave and I booked a semi-last minute trip to Cancun, Mexico! We were invited to stay at Beloved Playa Mujeres, an all-inclusive 5 star resort to experience their Wellness Week. They created a 4 day itinerary of fun chock full of well-rounded activities. From ceviche cooking class, to a wine painting class, and daily yoga on the beach. We didn’t plan anything, just went with the flow and had an amazing time enjoying their amenities (like the otherworldly spa!) and attending as many of the #wellnessweek activities as we could.
The resort does Wellness Week twice a year. Make sure to check it out if you’re looking for a trip full of fun and healthy activities, as well as a 5-star experience with total relaxation. And no joke, their hydrotherapy experience in their spa was a highlight of the trip. 3-4 different types of saunas and steam rooms, 5 different types of showers, cold plunge, jets, waterfalls, essential oils, scrubs, you name it! And it’s included in your stay!
I now totally get why people opt for an all-inclusive resort experience. I still love my adventure-travel trips and living like a local, but every once in awhile traveling to a beautiful location with top notch service, with all meals and activities totally taken care of, means less thinking and less stress. Loved it!
