Relax and Unwind

Last month we went to Playa Del Carmen Mexico on vacation.  We had a great trip.  Our resort, Valentin Imperial Maya, was an awesome all inclusive adult only resort.  

We arrived at the airport and were greeted by the Olympus Tours group and carried away to our resort.  They set up all our day trips and Russel's dive trips.  It's a great way to spend vacation - with no worries. 

On our day trip with Adventuras Maya we visited Tulum (mayan ruins), snorkeled the cenotes, Ziplined, and repelled - well Russel repelled and I watched.  The water at the cenotes was invigorating to say the least but a welcome change after a very warm morning of touring Tulum, climbing the towers to zipline and watching Russel repel.  After snorkeling there was a nice tasty lunch set up for us.   

At the resort we had an ocean front room.  We walked through a small stand of palms right onto the beach. 
The water was clear enough to see our toes and the perfect temperature.

There were two pools at the resort.  A main pool that was huge with two bars and a grill at lunch.  A lazy river pool that was close to our room and nice and quite.  It made for the perfect place to read and relax.  

The resort itself was large and well maintained.  There was a short walk to get to different places on the resort but with all the food we ate it was a good thing.  

Breakfast and lunch were buffet.  Room service was 24 hour.  There was a choice of 7 or 8 a la cart restaurants at night.  We had seafood, steak, sushi, mexican, italian, and much much more.  I ate more while we were gone than I normally eat in a month.  And the desserts were delish!

All in all it was a wonderful vacation.  I wish we were back in Playa laying on the beach and eating fresh fruit....but here we are.  Back to the real world with work and chores and things to get done.  So we'll cherish the memories of our trip and look forward to the next one.  Who knows where and who knows when.   

If you are interested - I have a bunch more pictures - who me?  Tons of pictures?  Never!?!?!?!?! Just ask me.
