To A Couple’s Retreat


Back in February, the spouse and I were lucky enough to take a trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It was awesome; gorgeous weather, lots of cerveza, and too much sun (I got fried the first day).

We left our little guy home with the grandparents and enjoyed a few days to ourselves. It was everything we needed after our first year of parenthood.

While there, we took a ferry over to Cozumel and spent a day sipping cocktails in beach bars. We napped, read, and relaxed by the pool. We shopped and appetizer-hopped down the main street, 5th Avenue. I spoke the same five Spanish words I know about 500 times. And we laughed and talked a lot.

We left exhausted, but rested … if that makes any sense. It was a perfect getaway – more than I could have hoped for. I’m so thankful to the spouse for making it happen.

If you’re thinking of taking a vacation, consider Playa Del Carmen. It’s one of my favorite travel places and there’s endless fun to be had.

Happy weekend, everyone. I’ll be spending it dreaming about these beaches ….

  1. Love that area of Mexico!!! So jealous. We haven’t been since 2008 – and we went TWICE that year! Cozumel is my happy, happy, happy place. Snorkeling there is amazing. Where did you stay in Playa? We only spent one night there, but it was at this great French owned boutique hotel on the beach with it’s own bar. We’d love to go back. Glad you were able to have a getaway with your honey. I loved reading that you laughed – the magic in a good marriage. :-)

    • It’s the best! We stayed in Playacar this last time. We’ve been there before – stayed in Tulum once and in downtown Playa once. We pretty much always go for the all-inclusive places … but next time we’re thinking of trying a boutique hotel. Where did you stay?? Thanks for always leaving such thoughtful comments. We need to meet in person some time!
