Planning Our Next Vacation

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

We are due for a trip...and one that is preferably far away! Besides a short couples trip to Costa Rica two years ago, Andrew and I haven't been on a trip by ourselves since our honeymoon which was 3 years ago. This is where I need your help! We have contacted a travel agent that works for Andrew's company, and she has given us a ton of great information, but I want your suggestions! She has given us suggestions on a few resorts near Cancun such as Excellence Riviera Cancun, which is currently the front runner. 

Our requirements:
Outside of the US
All-inclusive resort
Adults only (sorry moms!)
White sand and clear blue water
Great restaurants at the resort 
Pool (preferably our own) 
Affordable - can't spend what we did on our honeymoon! 

Other than that, we aren't really picky because we will really just sit on a beach for the majority of the day! We aren't huge into excursions because that takes effort, right? We are more into sitting on the beach with a book in hand, sipping on cocktails and snacks and getting in the ocean every now and then. 

Throwback from our Honeymoon in St. Lucia in 2012. 

Thanks for your help! I can't wait to hear your recommendations! We are not set on Mexico, so any location is up for grabs! 


  1. Can I suggest ARUBA and then go with you - best trip we've taken :) xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  2. we loved aruba too! we stayed at a resort in town that had a private island....there is an all inclusive option and the food is delicious! j would know the name of it!

  3. I have heard others rave about Aruba and Turks and Caicos! Good luck with the vacation hunting!

  4. Yay for planning vacations!! Look into Secrets Royal Beach in Punta Cana- Ryan & I went there 2 years ago and it was amazing- the resort was pristine and it is connected to the NOW resort next door so there are lots of options for food and entertainment :)

  5. Although this place does not meet the criteria, I still recommend it because it's my favorite place! I recommend Long Beach Island! Read about it on my blog here-
