Our resort was spectacular, and the beach was breathtaking. We woke up every morning with the sunlight spilling into our bedroom, and we spent most of each day relaxing and soaking up the sun's rays. We were surrounded by palm trees and golden light and every view was postcard perfect.
The city of Cancun is vibrant and picturesque and alive with colour. Walking the streets, I was fascinated by the colourful houses and overflowing gardens. We visited Mercado 28, a huge open air market with local vendors selling traditional handicrafts and many other unique items. It is also home to many restaurants serving authentic Mexican cuisine.
We soaked up all that we could in one short week, and we have returned home refreshed and recharged, and ready to take on life and all that it has to offer. We made memories this week that strengthened our relationship and reminded us of the importance of adventures and making time to appreciate things together (and to appreciate each other).
