Destination: Isla Mujeres
Happy Monday guys!!
At the end of May we decided to make our way over to Isla Mujeres, Quinta Roo Mexico. Cody to my surprise had planned out this entire trip to celebrate my birthday! He found us an All-Inclusive at the cutest little resort called Mia Reef.
Our journey to the destination was a bit of an adventure… let’s just say that Cody is new to this whole trip planning thing. We landed after a looooong red-eye flight at Cancun International Airport. Got a shuttle service from the airport to our port…yeah you red that correctly! A short ferry ride is required to get to Isla Mujeres. I recommend taking the ferry during the day so you can truly enjoy the beauty of the ride!!
Day 1 was all about unwinding and enjoying the all-inclusive amenities. We found the swim up bar and started the day off with some tasty Mango Margaritas made right there in front of you. The pool had a nice number of people in it, but not enough to feel crowded. Half-way through the day the staff began setting up a volleyball net in the pool where you were allowed to coordinate a game. I chose to sit back enjoy my tasty beverages and watch them play…Cody decided he’d join in. It was so much fun, cheering for both teams, listening to the music, and meeting so many new people!
Once volleyball was over the staff would begin a new activity; ranging from trivia to dance lessons. No matter what time of the day it was you could join in an activity. I was living up the vacation life more so than my better half. Cody loved joining in on the sports games, the kayaking tours, and snorkeling groups…all of which were apart of the ‘all-inclusive” package!
While exploring the hotel grounds we came across the neatest snorkel spot!! The Grand King Pool is located right outside the suites and has a cute little boardwalk down to the center. Mia Reef resort offers free snorkeling gear if you purchased the all-inclusive package.
After a fun day of snorkeling around the island we decided to head back to our room, clean up, and enjoy dinner on the beach. To our surprise Mia Reef offered entertainment at one of their dining locations. Every night was a different theme and you were more than welcome to join in!
There were 3 different dining locations, 2 which were walk in only and the 3rd required reservations. We never made it over to their reservation only spot because we enjoyed eating right there on the beach at random times. Trying to fit in as many possible fun activities meant dinner was whenever we started starving ha ha!
The staff at Mia Reef was fantastic!! Super friendly, hard working, and extremely attentive… the perfect combination! Anything we needed at anytime of the day/ night they were there instantly and as helpful as can be. We are soooo in love with this place – already planning our next trip back.
