Our Mexican Get A Way
Last Tuesday, Jon and I, along with our friend Steve and Lisa, boarded a plane and headed down to Mexico for a 4 night, 5 day vacation. We had a fabulous time. Steve and Lisa have triplets and an older child and Steve and Jon are in the same profession so it was fun to spend a few days with them on vacation away from work and kids. It was beautiful down in Playa Del Carmen where we stayed and so much fun to see the culture down there. The water was so blue and the weather was just perfect when we were there with the exception a rain the first evening. We had many wonderful meals and lots of great conversation over our stay. We swam in the ocean, walked the beach, collected many shells, got a little sun burned, had great conversations, and most of all we relaxed. One of the days we thought it would be fun to do a little adventure so we headed to the new amusement park in Mexico called Xplor. Xplor is a unique underground world, with activities that invite you to explore the 4 elements and rediscover your emotions and senses within nature.
Over 6 miles of adventure. Eleven exciting zip-lines, journeys through the jungle on unstoppable amphibious vehicles, an underground paradise where you can swim surrounded by amazing stalactites and stalagmites, a matchless raft route across stunning subterranean caverns while paddling with your own hands, and to complete your feat, a nutritious and light buffet, that will recharge your energy.
It was awesome to do all of these things and we all had a great time. I do not have any pictures from our day at this park as I did not have a water proof camera but I am sure we would of had some great shots. The Zip lines were my favorite and this is and adventure that I am not sure any of us will forget. Overall it was awesome to get away with my hubby and some fun friends. It was such an awesome place to go for a vacation that I am sure we will bring the kids back down one day to enjoy it with us.
It was nice to get back home to the kids as both Jon and I missed them so much. They were excited for the seashells we had found them and the fun shirts we brought to them. When we told them all about our trip all three of them got very excited about it. They all want to visit Mexico soon.
Big thanks to Grandma Mary and Grandpa Al , Jane, Uncle T, and Sue for helping out with the kids when we were gone. It's great to know that they are in such good hands.
