 This year we’re going to PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO!!!

I love planning vacations! I find it super calming and I get to research everything before I go to the country of interest. You’re wondering why go to Playa del Carmen and why is it so special? To be honest I’ve been wanting to go for a very long time but never had the chance to actually go there in the previous years. I love Mexican food so much and fell in love with their cuisine when I went on a family vacation to Cozumel in 2010. This year is a perfect year cause its 5 years being with the love of my life. He’s such an amazing person and I wouldn’t want anyone else to experience this with me.

Before planning this trip my boyfriend gave me a budget of 2000 dollars for hotel, flights, insurance and airport pickup. All and all I did a really great job. The total of this trip came out to 1800 dollars and I couldn’t have been prouder of myself.

I’ve used Trip Advisor religiously and compared prices with other search engines like TravelocityKayak, and Expedia.

Were going to be flying with Delta airlines leaving from JFK airport; stopping at Atlanta for two hours to take our next flight to Cancun airport.

Our hotel’s name is called Ocean Riviera Paradise; just 45 minutes away from Cancun airport.  Reading through a lot of reviews on Tripadvisor and making this hotel relatively new it was great for us to book and hey the pricing wasn’t so bad.

{I found out that they have a bowling alley in their hotel. How cool is that }

I’m still thinking of activities to do on this trip but I have a long way to go since I’m going to be in Mexico in November.

Hope you enjoy my blog! If anyone has gone to Ocean Riviera Paradise or has traveled to Playa del Carmen and want to give me any tips and advice I would love to hear them. Let me know where they serve authentic Mexican food and any activities to do out there. Thank you so much for reading my blog.
