CancĂșn Trip: One week at the Mayan Palace Riviera Maya

I spent all of last week on vacation in Mexico and I have to say that it was one of the best trips I have ever had. The weather was great, not too hot but still way better then Utah, and I could not have asked for a better group to be with. We spent most of the time sitting next to a gynormous pool or eating at one of the restaurants at the resort. We also meet up with a friend that lived in the area and he took us out to Playa del Carmen for a night on the town. We had delicious Mojitos at a Cuban club called Bodeguita del Medio and ended up sitting about 5 feet away from the spectacular fire dancers at the Blue Parrot. For Halloween part of the group went into town to the famous Coco Bongo club while the rest of us mingled with the folks on the resort. Pretty much the only downside to the entire trip were the ginger-hungry mosquitos and the 3 par gold course from hell (275 yards on a par 3... WTF?)

I got back on Saturday, but today was my first day of work so it didn't really set in until then. I did however feel very refreshed and got all caught up on emails and voicemail and am ready to dive back into everyday life. If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend going to CancĂșn or one of the resorts close by, as I will always remember these memories:
