Travelling: Cancun, Mexico

Good morning! I just got back from a fabulous vacation and thought I would share it with you!

Now I know most people take winter vacations to escape the weather, but we in Arizona like to getaway in the summer! And oh, was it glorious!

We went and stayed in the all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva in Cancun. We decided to go with Ziva instead of Zilara. This was only because Ziva was available the weekend we wanted to go. We used credit card points to get us those nights and just had a marvelous time relaxing.

My favorite meal was their restaurant Tradewinds for breakfast. It was fair for lunch. They of course also have a buffet (El Mercado). We enjoyed Lorenzo's, their Italian restaurant and both my husband and I agreed their lunch far out-shined their dinner. La Bastille was their French adults only restaurant and we did enjoy that for a night. They had a bar called Saasil that was good, but for some reason usually really slow. We did try Habaneros for a quick lunch and it was good. Sadly, their desserts--even at Pasteles were not the cause of my weight gain. They were lacking...

The pools were great. There was a beautiful adults only infinity pool with bar that we quite enjoyed. We also enjoyed their swim up bar, beach, and restaurants. We tried kayaking, wandered around, played tennis (first time on a grass court), and lounged. I also got to hold and pet an iguana named Chester! Such a sweetie! Some words of advice, if you want to paddle board, they have limited supply. Paddle boarding and kayaking are included so get there when they open at 10. To access the tennis courts, you can wander around aimlessly trying to find someone who knows where to get equipment, or you can go to the gym and ask them for the equipment. The tennis court is on the third floor and the gym is across from the shopping areas.

Despite the weight gain and sunburn I would highly recommend it!
Now back to the real world for me!
Where are your favorite places to stay in Cancun?
