Lil Miss Tanned: Mexico, in photos :)

Hi guys! I just got back from Mexico! I have to say, it's the most beautiful country I have ever visited! I will definitely go back there! 

I stayed at the Grande Sirenis Riviera Maya Hotel - which was amazing! It was the first time I stayed in a 5 star resort, and it definitely met its' expectations! Here is my review on Trip Advisor

Here are some photos :)

The gorgeous beach in our resort
I did yoga in here :)
Swim up bar - how convenient!

Lazing about, in the lazy river ;)
Tips: 
  • The weather was generally pleasant (I went from the 6th to 20th of July) but it did rain a few days! On the last day of our trip, there was a major storm! I nearly got swept away! The locals told me that it is best to visit Mexico from November to June. I actually appreciated the rain in Mexico - I hate it when it's too hot! If you are a Sun worshipper, then definitely avoid August, September and October! 
  • If you go to Mexico, you have to visit Chichen Itza, which is said to be one of the wonders of the world. It was built by the Mayan people. The Mayan people have prophesied that on 21st December 2012, the world is going to end! There will be lots of people flocking to Chichen Itza this year to find out more about doomsday
  • I also went to Xplor - an adventure island which involves zip lining, driving through caves, swimming and rafting through caves. It was amazing - definitely check it out, especially if you are an adrenaline junkie :) 
  • I also went swimming with dolphins, which is one of those once in a lifetime experiences (although I will definitely be doing it again). Dolphins are such wonderful creatures - I even got kissed by one :) 
  • Spanish is the main language in Mexico, so it could be a good idea to brush up on some words before you go there, although most people do speak English
  • I am going to do another post on what I ate in Mexico - and a few tips on avoiding weight gain on holiday! 
  • If you have any questions, feel free to email me or tweet me 

Are you going on holiday this year?

  2. Wow what a holiday! You look so cute in the floral dress! Thanks for the tip about weather, I'm not a sun worshipper per se so will probably go when its not too hot. I really want to see the Chichen Itza. I'm probably going Morocco or Qatar later this year. Looking forward to the food post :) x x
