Last week I was lucky enough to spend some time in one of my favorite places again, Mexico. I was attending a conference for work that was held at the beautiful Grand at Moon Palace in Cancun. One of the reasons I was excited to come back here is because I wanted to show my support and also convince my clients that there is nothing to fear when vacationing in this part of paradise. You will not visit another area of the world where staff and locals are as welcoming as they are in Mexico.
From the moment you arrive in the Cancun airport till the moment you depart you are made to feel like they have been waiting to welcome you here forever. We have been utilizing the ground transportation company Lomas Travel while in the area for many years now. They are a family owned company, that actually started out as a small mom and pop business many years ago that grew into what is now a large travel empire. We were lucky enough to meet the owner and his wife at a farewell dinner they hosted for us at the breathtaking El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya. It was like being at a large family event where they made you feel like they personally knew you, they even took the time to shake every single one of our hands when we arrived.
There are so many amazing things to do when you are visiting the Cancun/Riviera Maya area too. This specific trip we visited the Cirque Du Soleil show Joya in Riviera Mayas stunning new theater Vidanta.
In many past trips to Mexico over the years I have been lucky enough to spend time swimming with dolphins at the Xcaret Park as well as have a fun adventurous time on board a colorful party barge that takes you through the beautiful natural scenery of Xoximilco Cancun where you eat Mexican cuisine and indulge in Tequila, beer and cocktails while being accompanied by live fiesta music. I even went out on a limb and ate a cricket! There are so many different things for you to do while you visit that it is virtually impossible to ever grow bored of vacationing here!
As you can see in the video above from the balcony of my room from my most recent trip, the scenery the area offers is magnificent. Walking up to this view every morning is nothing short of a miracle. One of the greatest things about visiting Mexico is that it is a place where you can get the most bang for your buck. Many airports flying here offer non stop flights and the area is full of some of the best all inclusive resorts in the world. Whether you are coming with your family or just your loved one, they have a resort specific to fit your needs. Did I mention how amazing their food is? While the media frenzy has been out to scare many of you into traveling here, try and tune the noise out. If you speak to any travel agent, they are going to tell you Mexico is the place to be. I have never felt unsafe or better yet unsatisfied with any of my travels there!
