Other than making a few pit stops in Mexico due to family trips via cruise lines to Cozumel for a set amount of hours, I can't say that I had the full experience of Mexico. What I also haven't experienced before was traveling with a significant other! There's always a first for everything, right? My boyfriend (Nigel) and I were going to be traveling during Spring Break, so we definitely wanted to avoid the crazy spring breaker crowd.
Our destination qualifications included:
After two weeks of officially being together (I know, we a lil cray lol), our adventurous side took the best of us and we eventually picked the wonderful, oh so dreamy . . .

We arrived in Cancun, rented a VW Jetta and our adventure began!
The Mexican cuisine is colorful, flavorful, fresh and SO affordable. There is nothing that compares to having that hot plate of authentic Mexican food (Especially all the amazing, countless tacos I ate).
Top 3 places that stole my ♡:
This cenote is a hidden gem. We had a difficult time trying to figure out which cenote to visit because there were SO MANY beautiful cenotes to pick from. We were incredibly happy with our pick! Gran Cenote was a cold swim, but was perfect in the hot weather. The area was unreal and was nothing like I have ever seen in my life, magical even.
The views were absolutely stunning. It was such a cool experience to just stand at the cliff to see the view of the turquoise sea. Being at the Tulum Ruins was absolute paradise!
I have never felt more confident in a swimsuit. Probably needed it from all the tacos I ate, but I felt really comfortable in it. Even Nigel complimented me on it, so that's ALWAYS a plus when you get that from your man, right??
