Viva La Mexico!

Cancun is so bloody pretty. It was such a contrast to Vegas which is beautiful in it's glitzy glamorous man-made kind of way. Cancun is just naturally stunning with it's huge palm trees, crystal turquoise sea, bright white sand, lagoons... 

When we booked our holiday to Vegas, we started to think... well after travelling 10 hours plus to get to the states, why don't we go somewhere from there, kill 2 birds with 1 stone? A few days later we had a multi-centre holiday booked; Vegas to Cancun!

We booked into the Omni Cancun Resort which is a small hotel at the end of the Hotel Zone. It was far from luxury and felt even less so after spending time at the grand Aria hotel in Vegas. Aria made this hotel feel budget and slightly third world.

If I were to go back to Cancun, I'd definitely try and stay at the Riu or Iberostar. A little touch of luxury makes all the difference sometimes...

Mimosas soon became my favourite cocktail. Champagne and orange juice? Yes please.

Yay, we found another jacuzzi to obsess over!

Oh look, there was another jacuzzi, and it had a bar...on the beach! This quickly became our new home.

Time for us to hit the strip...party time! (And shameless selfie time :-))

The outside of our hotel was really cute, it had lots of little ponds and waterfalls and pretty trees and plants.

 The beach in Cancun is sooooooooooo blue, I've never seen such a beautiful blue in my life. We couldn't get over it.

I tried escargot (cooked snails) for the first time in my life. They were actually quite tasty...I polished off my plate.

We hit the town a few times

Life is good.
