Vamanos a Mexico!
Hola. Como estas? Me llamo Kristie. Mas cervesa por favor. No problema esta aqui para mi. Donde esta el bano? Cuanto es?
Just thought I would start practicing for our trip next July when mi corazon, our family, friends and I descend upon the El Dorado Royale in the Riviera Maya (Mexican Caribbean) for a weeks worth of festivities to celebrate the new jewelry Chris and I will be wearing.
Yes folks. It has happened. It only took us three months, but Chris and I have finally secured a destination for our destination wedding. YAHOO!
Nestled on a lovely strip of white beach inbetween Cancun and Playa del Carmen is the ‘little’ resort El Dorado Royale. I say ‘little’ as it is actually a lot bigger than I was originally looking for, but after closer review we noticed it had all the elements we wanted in our destination:
(1) Resort - all inclusive. Plethera of food, drinks, and activities without you ever needing to take your wallet out of the safe. There is also a spa for those moments we truly wish to pamper ourselves.
(2) Accomodations - Main resort has lovely 'reasonably priced' rooms and the building are no more than three stories high which keeps it more intimate feeling. There are also individual bungalows (casitas) available for those who wish to live like P. Diddy for a day (or seven).
Chris and I are going to go hog wild and book the swim up casita. You know what they say, 'when in Rome'...(3) Location - most everyone can get there on a direct flight with others not having more than one layover. It is also just 30 minutes to Cancun and 15 minutes to Cozumel / Playa del Carmen so we can take road trips if everyone felt the need to leave the resort for a day.
Of course, we are still trying to figure out how to get grandpa there without him having to fly, but I am hopeful we can work it out.
So there you have it. All the blood, sweat and tears that have been shed over the last three months have finally landed us in Mexico. And I couldn't be happier.
Vivo, amor, danza, cante.
