Bye, bye Washington.
We stayed at the Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas and it was beautiful! I’ve never traveled in off-season before, and it was the best thing! The pool was never crowded and you could always find a shaded beach chair.
Tacos for lunch. Every. Day.
This was such a beautiful read. I talk about it on my instagram here.
We took a catamaran to Isla Mujeres. To be honest, it wasn’t my favorite. Some of the crew were rude and they were really disrespectful to the environment. They fed and touched the fish when snorkeling, and at one point we saw a nurse shark that had been caught and all of it’s teeth had been ripped out. It was super disappointing to see, but it was also a reminder that unfortunately not all places treat animals or the environment the same way we do (which isn’t to say that we’re perfect, either). It’s funny, whenever I travel I am absolutely shocked when I can’t find a recycling bin. PNW girl here, haha.
Not a bad way to wake up.
Essentials. You can grab the Maui Babe lotion here, it’s the best!
For our layover we landed in Utah, and it was one of the most beautiful sunsets. It was a nice welcome home.
