Hasta Luego, PV!

8 days. A new country, culture and language. Friendly people. Lots of fun.

Apparently, it’s the rainy season in Mexico. However, it only rained 2 nights we were there and thankfully, it didn’t hamper our trip one bit. In fact, it made for spectacular greenery and a very cool thunder and lightening storm.

Highlights include:

  • Swimming with Dolphins
  • Zip-lining jungle tour
  • Snorkeling at Los Arcos & Conchas Chinas
  • The amazing food and view at Lindo Mar Restaurant @ Conchas Chinas
  • Daily massages at the spa for me and Morgan

Yes, you read that right… daily.

We enjoyed some amazing first-time experiences on this trip. Receiving daily massages was certainly one of them. This was part of the special rate we paid (which was already a steal because of the low season). In other words, 2 daily massages were included, FREE.

I know, kind of hard to believe until it actually happens, right?

Well, it did happen. And it was wonderful!!

This trip was a fantastic mix of new adventures and plenty of rest. We slept great, ate well, practiced our Spanish, and relished the time we had as a family to soak it all in.

The girls have always been superb travelers. We hope they never lose their adventurous spirit and their sense of wonderment.

We figured this is probably one of the last international trips we’ll be taking for a little while.

So very GRATEFUL for it all.
