Mexico Birthday Surprise: Part 2

Here is the second half of the trip as I promised to you yesterday.  Even a beach lover like myself can only lounge in the sun for so long before I need some adventure.  On my last full day in Mexico, we hopped in our rental and drove 20 minutes south to Tulum.  I have some sort of weird obsession with ancient ruins and temples when I travel so I was excited to explore the Mayan Ruins of Tulum.


This was a huge national park with all different types of terrain from rocky cliffs to beaches and rainforest areas.  It was a mere $10 to enter and you could spend as long as you liked hiking, biking, swimming, or just relaxing.



It’s so amazing that these structures are still standing after all of these years.  Mankind can be absolutely intriguing!


There was definitely a mystical feeling in the air here.


Hiking through the jungle.


Another gorgeous view from the cliff tops.

I hope you enjoyed me sharing my little trip with you.  Where have you traveled that you loved the most?

Mexico Birthday Surprise: Part 1

I’m baaaaacckk!! Sorry for the short hiatus but my sweet husband surprised me and swept me off to Mexico for my birthday last week!  I was beyond excited because I hadn’t been to Mexico since spring break ’96 in Acapulco.  This trip was of a different nature, however.  I traded in partying at Senor Frogs for a relaxing on the beach and enjoying quality time with my husband.


We travelled one hour south of Cancun to Riviera Maya, Mexico.  I’m pictured here on the north end of our resort by the natural pool.


We stayed at the Grand Palladium Hotel & Resort.  A sprawling property with four separate hotels, multiple pools, and restaurants.


A few pictures of the gorgeous property…



This picture doesn’t do this pool justice which was located at the spa.


There were a lot of iguana crossings.
