I was recently lucky enough to spend about a week and a half in paradise with my good friend Debbie. I hadn’t been on a good girlfriend getaway in years! Not to mention, my vacation style is usually more of the cram-as-many-sights-museums-and-adventure-into-as-few-days-as-possible variety. I’ve never really been on a resort or beach vacation. Even in Maui, we had rented a car and drove ourselves through the jungle and hiked around volcanoes.
But as I get older, I find myself appreciating the fact that a good vacation doesn’t always have to mean going somewhere new or super exotic or visiting tons of historical sights every day. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been on a “relaxing” vacation in my whole life…
But nowadays, just staying at a nice hotel sounds like a lovely trip to me. I finally understand the appeal of a vacation where you don’t do much. I’m always so grateful for how much travelling I’m able to do on a regular basis and this time, the fact that I got a whole ten days of sun, beach, relaxation and some quality girlfriend time.
Oh, and the fact that I got to do a TON of snorkelling. Have I mentioned how much I love snorkelling?
All this to say, I’m glad I’ve finally tried out a different style of travel that I can now appreciate as being a viable future travel option. Maybe not all the time, but every once in a while, just chilling on a beach is simply heavenly.
Not to mention my newfound love of hammocks, aka, the most relaxing way to lay at a horizontal angle that has ever been invented! Even better, a hammock in the ocean so the waves can gently rock you back and forth, while keeping your sunburned butt/back nice and cool…

its an amazing travel journey and this is such a great taste of travel of Mexico!
sounds like you had such a lovely and relaxing holiday! sometimes it’s good to simply unwind without the pressure of ticking sights and activities off your list.
next time you go to Cozumel you should really try diving, it’s even better than snorkeling! the Yucab Reef is an insanely gorgeous site to explore
