Mexico in February

In February we took off for a week of sunshine and relaxation.  The day before we left was our 5 year anniversary, so this was a nice way to celebrate! 

We had a direct flight to Cancun, and we stayed at Coral Level at Iberostar Selection.  It's an adults-only resort within a larger resort.

When we were checking in, the view out the window was beckoning us to come outside and play.

The room was lovely, but the balcony was the best part.

We often got room service and enjoyed it while watching the waves below.

The food was pretty good, and I loved the burrata appetizer at the restaurant on the adult side.  You can't go wrong with burrata. 


Most days for lunch we had a bunch of freshly grilled veggies, topped with olive oil, salt and pepper.  They were so good!

One beautiful morning we got up around 5:00 a.m. and went to a beach bed to watch the sunrise.  It was pitch black when we got out there, but we looked at the stars, listened to the waves, and enjoyed the peacefulness. 


The beach was unreal!

The resort was very pretty as well, and the service was top-notch.


I was impressed with Christopher, as he spoke Spanish with the staff the entire time we were there!  He has been learning Spanish for at least an hour per day for the past year, and it is really starting to pay off.  When he sets his mind to something, he follows through, and I was surprised by how far his Spanish has come.  I really need to step up my practicing! 

All in all, it was a really nice winter getaway, and we're missing our daily dips in the ocean.

Did you get away this winter? Winter was actually quite nice this year in Saskatchewan - how was it where you are?

Sounds like a wonderful getaway! You can't beat the Caribbean in the winter! We stayed at an Iberostar resort in Jamaica when our friends got married a little over 5 years ago. We had a really great experience.

I can't believe it's already been 5 years since you guys got married, too! Time flies!!

Winter was not too bad here either. We had quite a bit of snow earlier in the season, like in November/December, but all in all it wasn't a terrible winter and we didn't have much bitterly cold weather which was nice!! I'm sooo ready for warm spring weather, though!

Our winter getaway was a quick trip to FL. I am so glad we went early and could still do the trip. The COVID-19 concerns really kicked up after we got back from that trip.
