It's not where you go, it's who you go with

I just got back from Cancun, and I literally had the time of my life. It was a girls trip (of 6 girls) for my cousin's 30th birthday. I had been to Cancun before when I was 15 with my mom and sister, but this trip was a grown up trip ;-).

We stayed at the Riu Cancun from Friday - Tuesday. It's right in the hotel zone, within walking distance from the strip. It's a nice hotel, I would definitely stay there again. There was an infinity pool with a swim up bar, a kiddie pool, and the beach. There were a lot of Bachelor and Bachelorette trips going on as well.

So, I was the last to arrive on Friday morning. My first stop was margaritas at the hotel bar. Then off to the beach, to wash off the crosses of course. There were no activities on Friday, but we went to Fat Tuesday's at night. Saturday, we went swimming with the dolphins during the day and Lavaquita at night. Not gonna lie, Lavaquita was lit!!!!!

Sunday, we spent a full day out on excursions. First, we went snorkeling and swimming with the turtles. Then, we rode ATV's in Tulum right before a delicious Mexican lunch. Then, we ended the day swimming in the caves. Our tour guide Flash told us "in the Mayan culture, it is said that you leave the bad in the cave." Basically when Jamaicans say "wash off the crosses" in salt water. Sunday night, we went to Senor Frogs for a crazy paint party. Sooooooo much fun!!!!!

Monday was spent in the infinity pool tanning and sun bathing. Monday was my cousin's actual birthday. For dinner, I made reservations at Mocambo with great seafood right on the beach. At dinner, the head chef gave us a round of the Mocambo Margarita on the house. The live entertainment came over and sang happy birthday. My cousin was on cloud 9, and honestly, so were the rest of us.

The trip was a perfect redemption from Trinidad. A great group of girls, no attitudes, no shade, no arguments. Just perfect.
