Our first time to Mexico! To be completely honest, we were a bit nervous to visit with the increase of crime. However, we’re so happy that we took the leap and went! We all fell in love with the country- including Cooper (our 2 year old).
We spent 2 weeks between Quintana Roo and Yucatan. We thoroughly enjoyed Akumal Beach, it’s a paid beach and there were quite a few people there which was kind of a downside. But- we liked it was because the water was extremely calm. It’s protected by the reef so it’s perfect for Cooper’s age to be able to play in the water without getting pummeled. Another highlight for me was Valladolid. It’s a sleepy little town with beautiful buildings- all painted different colours. You can see photos on our Instagram! And lastly we spent a few nights on an island- Isla Mujeres. It’s quite small but spread out. We stayed on the south end of the island at Isla 33 Villas which was a beautiful 2 bedroom villa situated right across from the ocean.
If you’d like to hear more about our time in Mexico, we posted a video on our Youtube channel.
