Una Navidad Azul
LOCATION: Cancun, Mexico
I am thankful to be given the opportunity to spend Christmas in the warm, blue-tinted getaway known as Cancun. Once landing in Mexico, proceeding through customs, and enduring an hour bus ride... we arrived at the Grand Principe Bahia Tulum Resort (Isn't that a mouthful? Try saying that ten times fast).
Each day brought a new adventure. And... sometimes a new friend (iguanas and raccoons like to live the fancy lifestyle and stay at the resort as well). I was able to snorkel with stingrays, turtles, and coral in the Great Maya Reef (The 2nd largest reef area in the world), 'drive' a catamaran, and try authentic Mexican food and drinks (cough cough, Tequilaaaaaaa).
Thankfully the all-inclusive resort package included one perk that was right up my alley: ice cream. A self-serve ice cream stand was located a hop, skip, and a jump away from the hammocks I frequently found myself relaxing in. Even though I was incapable of 'dipping' my ice cream cone, I used my artistic skills to cover the tasty treat with either sprinkles, mini M&M's, or Oreo crumbles. I may or may not have been Pablo Picasso one night and combined all three toppings.
I just got dipped in Cancun, Mexico.
