Viva la Mexico!

Several weeks ago, Matt and I got to take a wonderful vacation to Cancun with my family. Our parents both own timeshares in Mexico, so we've been many times, but this was our first trip to Cancun.
It was absolutely gorgeous. The ocean is so much clearer and bluer than on the Pacific coast (where we usually go), and the beach was soft and delightful.
We spent most of our time by the awesome resort pool, but we ventured out on two days to explore Isla Mujeres, a small island 8 miles off the coast.
It had the best beaches, and we spent time wading out and snorkeling.
This is how you get around the island. Awesome, no?
We cooled off at the end of the first day with paletas, delicious frozen coconut milk treats.

We had a great time and can't wait for next year (wink, Dad!)!
