Mexico Highlights

We spent Easter and the week following at the best resort we've ever been to - Now Amber/Secrets in Puerta Vallarta, MexicoThe best things about this resort were:
  •  How small it was; all a la carte restaurants were an elevator ride away, and the pools and beach were just a few steps beyond that (numerous pools, swim up, infinity, etc.)

  •  The food was incredible, and there were about 6 a la carte restaurants, none of which required reservations, had a visit limit, or a wait to get in

  •  24 room service (food and drink) - completely all-inclusive
  •  No bracelets 
  •  Dance club (similar to the ones at home) and outdoor movie theatre
  •  Premium liquor (Grey Goose, Jack, Crown, etc.).
  •  Legit coffee shop with espresso drinks, pastries, sandwiches etc., all included

We left the resort a few times, to golf, go to a candlelit dinner ocean side, and to buy some goodies in town.  The golf was at an incredibly beautiful course.

The weather was perfect every. single. day.  We loved this trip. 

Now back to real life.  Oh, and snow.

I love all these photos! I have never been to Mexico but would love to go someday as I would love a relaxing vacation. My SIL is turning 40 next spring and she mentioned she might want to do a girls trip to Mexico and I REALLY hope she does because I know we'd have a blast. This resort sounds awesome. I am glad the weather worked out so well for you. But - I hope spring arrives for you guys soon!
