I love Mexico! I never expected to like it so much, but our spring break trip to Mexico was perfect. We stayed at an all-inclusive (which I've never done before) in Riviera Maya (which is about 1 hour south of Cancun).
All we did (truly) was sleep, eat and sit on the beach. Ok, ok, there was an escape at snorkling and kayaking but those only last a half hour at the most. It was a smaller resort, but I think that was a good thing. We were able to get whatever we wanted to eat or drink whenever we wanted without much of a wait. This took ma few days to get used to as did not tipping every time we got a drink.
One thing that sticks out in my mind was the Carribean Sea. I remember waking up each day and going out to the beach and every day thinking, "I can't believe the water is that color". In terms of the water and the beach, I would have to say it was prettier than Maui. Gasp, I know, blasphemy.
Well, it was a much need break from school. This is the long haul now, but it was great to escape.
