Honeymoonin’ (pt 2): Highlights From Cancun

For our Honeymoon,  my husband and I spent 10 days in Cancun.  We loved every minute of it!  Obviously, the best part of the honeymoon was the hotel we stayed at, Secrets The Vine.  It was a luxury adults-only all inclusive resort, so our stay was all about indulgence.  You can read all about our experience at the hotel in my last post:  Honeymoonin’: Our Stay at Secrets The Vine Cancun.  I totally expected to spend most of the vacation laying on the beach eating all the food, but my husband made sure to arrange plenty of exciting activities for us.  Here are some of the highlights!

There’s nothing like getting away to a tropical beach destination.  I know I can never get enough to waking up to warm sun, white sandy beaches and clear water.  Unfortunately, most of these places require a passport, which can be a bummer if you or someone in your group doesn’t have one or has let theirs expire.  But don’t fret!  Here are 5 beautiful beach destinations that you can visit that don’t require a passport.

5 Places I’d Rather Be Than Sick at Home

Who gets a full blown cold in the winter??  Me, that’s who.  And not just the slight sniffles, with the occasional sneeze.  I mean laying on the couch with a box of tissues and a blanket, red, stuffy nose cold.  Every blow of my nose makes me think more and more of all the places I’d rather be than on my couch with this box of tissues, watching Netflix.  Check out my top 5 places I’d rather be.

Turks and Caicos: Go Off The Beaten Path

Providenciales, Turks and Caicos is a beautiful island.  It has some of the best beaches i’ve ever visited, and the people are super friendly!  One thing I did notice on my first (of many) trips though, is that it is not immediately obvious where to go to experience local culture and food.  Grace Bay is ranked one of the best beaches in the world, and has many luxury hotels and condominiums on its beachfront, but they are generally European style.  Check out some of these places to get a little local flavor.

Beautiful Saint Maarten: Our Stay in Orient Bay

Earlier this month,  my new husband and I decided to take a short celebratory getaway to Saint Maarten.  I chose Saint Maarten because my husband had never been to the Caribbean before (most of his travels have been to Europe or Asia), and I wanted a Caribbean destination that I had not visited before.  Saint Maarten turned out to be a lovely trip for the both of us.

Martinique: French Caribbean Paradise

For a long time in my twenties, I’d been longing to go to Martinique.  I don’t remember how I even came across it as a travel option in the first place, but it always looked like such an interesting place that I knew I wanted to visit.  Unfortunately, since Martinique apparently was not big on American tourism at the time, the flight and hotel costs made travel to Martinique a little too much of a stretch for my budget.

Capetown: 3 Awesome Things to Do

Capetown is a BEAUTIFUL city.  I cannot say that enough.  Literally everywhere you look is picture perfect.  That said, the 10 days I spent there was not nearly enough to cover all the sites and experiences Capetown has to offer.  Sidetone:  Uber is probably the cheapest and most convenient way to get around.  None of my Uber rides costed more than $10.
