We just returned from an awesome DreamTrip Team Trip in Cancun we took March 1-5, 2017. It was an all-inclusive stay at the Hard Rock Hotel with a $750 resort credit we could use for massages or an excursion, which we actually didn’t even make it too, because we partied hard the night before.
We arrived Wednesday and attended the DreamTrip Welcome Party that included food and drinks. We reconnected with our team and met new fellow DreamTrippers.
Thursday, we woke early so we could dive at the underwater museum. It was Shequita’s second time scuba diving, so she took a quick, discover-type class and did one pool dive, so that she could open-water dive. As I wrote earlier, the underwater museum is composed of concrete artworks, including figural statues and a concrete VW Beetle, which have been purposely arranged on the ocean floor, The art serves an environmental purpose as well, creating a man-made reef to avert some tourism away from the natural reef, which has been degraded by an abundance of visitor traffic. It’s an artistic conservation effort that draws gorgeous underwater life.
Friday, we hung out and took naps at the pool and played beach volleyball to rest up for Coco Bongo Nightclub that evening. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Coco Bongo is the best nightclub in the world, and now I’ve been to all three locations. The other two are in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and Punta Carmen, Dominican Republic. We had an all-inclusive drink package and enjoyed the series of shows that were interspersed throughout the night with themes based on Beetlejuice, Spiderman, Brazilian music, 300, Tron, Michael Jackson, and Pitbull. We got back to the hotel at 4:00 am.
Needless to say, we chose sleeping in Saturday morning over the tour for which we had applied our resort credit. Later, we went shopping at La Islas and to The Fish Spa by Sea of Life where Garra Rufa fish ate the calluses off our feet. It’s a pedicure that makes your feet hella smooth and it was followed up by a foot massage.
If any of this sounds like how you would like to travel, let me know.
