In the midst of the brutal cold months, what’s better than a tropical vacation to escape your winter stress? Life is pretty good when you get to wear a bikini everyday; add a sandy beach along with a margarita and I’m sold! If you are looking for a fun time in a paradisiacal location without breaking your bank, look no further than Cancun, Mexico.
Where to stay:
The Riu Palace is not only a superb location walking distance from all the hot shops, bars, and clubs, but it is absolutely gorgeous. From the time you walk into the doors, prepare to be mesmerized. The decor in the lobby alone will take your breath away, never mind the private beach views that align the hotel.
While this 24 hour all inclusive hotel is easy on the eyes, let’s be real we’re all more concerned about the food and of course the alcohol!!! This five star hotel is not your typical all inclusive with the usual cheap, no-name liquor that will have you waking up with a headache; they offer top shelf name brands you would order at a regular bar. But the fun doesn’t end there; they have four dispensers of alcohol in each individual room; literally a fountain of alcohol like you would find for soda at your local McDonalds 😍😍😍 -a dream come true. Of course, you can expect the food to be just as fab from a top of the line buffet (that offers surf and turf dinner) to 5 different restaurants (gourmet, Brazilian, Japanese, Spanish, and steakhouse) to 24 hour room service, the possibilities are endless.
Daytime fun-time Everytime I travel, I like to splurge on at least one excursion. In Cancun, my favorite activity has been dolphin discovery at isla mujere (a tiny island off the coast of Cancun, a short boat ride away). For a day of fun and an incredible experience swimming with dolphins (the boughetto fab way), check out this awesome website I found for discounts on different packaged deals.
Nightime fun-time If you are a night owl and love a good party scene like myself, Coco Bongo is definitely an experience you do not want to miss. This is the top night life venue on the strip with unforgettable live performances, unlimited drinks (all inclusive of course), and nonstop fun. The best part is you dont even have to worry about transportation because it is literally a five minute walk from the Riu Palace, so go ahead and drink your liver to death and get ready to stumble back to your cozy room after an unforgettable night of fun.
Looking for a casual place to let loose with a more hip hop vibe? I strongly recommend La Vaquita (the little cow). Kiki and I went there four out of the five nights we spent in Cancun, and let me tell you we had nothing short of a great time (and duh took over the club). This casual open air nightclub is also conveniently located at the heart of the strip and offers more American style hip hop music. Now, you know I live for a good deal. For only $30 you have access to unlimited drinks all night long. Don’t expect to leave this venue before sunrise!
Now get out there and plan your next getaway to Cancun and let us know how you like it in the comment section. This is sure to be an adventure for the books!
