Vacation By The Playa

I jus learned that "Playa" means "Beach" in Spanish, really?? Wow! First day on the trip started out rouuggghhhhh. But what trip doesn't start rough? I've had a fair share of rough starts in my life. Lupita with her last minute errands took a longer than usual, but that didn't get in the way of anything. We were still on time. After filling out the papers at the border to cross the bridge into the TJ Airport, Lupita's niece and nephew couldn't get in without a passport. They have an ID card that usually work but for some reason, at this cross they couldn't. We were running short on time too. So they had to turn around and enter through another entrance as we proceed into TJ Airport. It wasn't looking good for her sister and brother and law, along with the niece and nephew but for some reason, I wasn't stressing it. I felt like everything was going to work out. And it did!! WOW talk about a miracle! We flew out of TJ at 9:30 PM, had a lay over in Mexico City for a couple of hours. I think we got there around 3 AM. We finally arrived to Cancun at 8 AM, and remember, Cancun is two hours ahead of the Pacific Standard Time. I got some sleep in on the plane, which is cool. 

Cancun is hot as fuck ya'll. 82 degrees at 8 AM. It's kinda weird here. Long road, greens everywhere. And you can see a structure near the street with a long drive way that leads you to a resort of some kind. There's multiple resorts around here. And we're staying at Paradisus Playa Del Carmen La Perla hotel, a 5 star hotel which I've never experience before. And oh my god, this place look and smell amazing! We got a pretty nice size room and tomorrow we're moving into another room so I can't wait to see what that one look like. So far we've drank, ate, swam at the pool with the kids. I'm blogging right now while everyone is taking a nap and will save this and continue tonight when the day is over. Hopefully you enjoy the pics and get something out of my trip so you can plan yours. 

I didn't plan on staying in the 5 star hotel but I'm glad I did it. And I didn't plan on getting a shuttle from the airport to the hotel cuz I thought we'd ride with the rest of the group but there taxi was full. So I booked my a private shuttle through Cancun Shuttle and you can find the info from the Cancun International airport website, so glad we did it.

I don't know, I guess I should take a photo of the hotel's bathroom too. They had a shower in there for you too, so you can shower while you wait for your room to be ready.

We ate at Naos quite often, one of the places we didn't need to make reservation. Food was good too.
