Cancun:: Good Friends & Strong drinks

So I’ve been detoxing for a week since we got back from Cancun since it is nonstop for 5 days straight once you arrive (drinks and dinners).  For some reason this year seemed to go by a lot slower and smoother but after the second day I was missing both my kids.  I really love traveling with them, and if I was allowed to bring them they would have been there.  This is our 4th year going to Cancun, every year my company TEKsystems sponsors the trip and the amazing hotels hosts our entire crew!  The staff is so attentive, even though its an all inclusive place, the employees make us feel very welcomed and special.  The weather could not have been better this year, I think it maybe rained for a total of 30 minutes late one afternoon on our last day and stayed consistently in the 80s.  If you’re looking for a quick easy trip in February-Cancun is very affordable and we always feel safe on the resort properties.  The only time we venture off property though are for excursions all pre-arranged by the company.

Where we Stayed this year:  JW Marriot Cancun (Spa amazing)
In the past stayed here, sister hotel: Casa Magna Resort

Activities we did:  Swimming with Dolphins, the coolest part was the dolphin pushing us into the water from behind, see photos.  I was going so fast I thought my swim bottoms were about to fall off haha. (note: they would not let us take our own photography or videos, no gopros, and made you pay for their photography, so for this reason I give them 3 stars).

-Previous years we have done the ATVS, Jetskis, Catamaran, and cave diving, all well worth it!

Restaurants we love:
Breakfast buffet at JW was always on point.
Harrys (wait for the Cotton Candy at the end, AMAZING!
Indochine (Think of Nobu, but better).   && you know we love Nobu.  This was the first year we got to experience this gem, from the entrance to the scenic views…. i cant believe we have never been before and will probably be eating their every night next year.  Sushi was so good, and again i don’t usually care for sushi.
Puerto Madero–  probably the best steak house in Cancun.  My husband loves the Carpaccio.
