Hot Days and Cool Nights in Cancun!

We had a wonderful time in Cancun this past week! We stayed at Le Blanc an all-inclusive resort. It was paradise! We truly were able to relax and be stress free.

We had a beautiful view from our 8th floor room of the beach and Caribbean Sea, gorgeous!

We did a lot of relaxing at the pool and enjoyed the swim up bar! Much of our time was spent beside this pool as we soaked in the rays and enjoyed being pampered. We spent time talking to many of the attendants and had fun getting to know them and their stories.

We met a really fun couple from Florida at our resort!

We also enjoyed exploring the ocean. The water was a warm 85 degrees and the waves were just right to enjoy some body surfing! There is nothing like hearing the sound of the ocean the first thing in the morning.

We took our own speedboat on a long and winding ride through the channels and out to the coral reef for some snorkeling.

The snorkeling was great. We saw plenty of fish, a stingray, squid, and a huge gruesome looking barracuda.

We rented a jetski one afternoon and had fun cruising on the open ocean!

At night we got dressed up for dinner. On the resort grounds there were five great restaurants: Italian, French, Oriental, International, and a Mexican-International. The food was fantastic and we really had a great time getting to know the staff...such wonderful people.

One night after dinner a concert was being held up in the third floor lounge. The atmosphere was great as the musicians played Latin and American songs. It was the perfect way to relax after a fun filled day. Another night we saw an amazing fire show...very impressive! We hope to return next year!
