Spring Break in Mexico 2015


Our trip to Playa Del Carmen for spring break was fantastic!  We stayed at a resort called the Occidental Grand Xcaret which was right next door to an ecological park called Xcaret.  Our package was all-inclusive, giving us unlimited access to the park which was in walking distance to the resort.  We were able to go snorkeling in some really clear water which the kids loved.  The hotel included lots of pools, restaurants, shops, spa and a gym.  There was also entertainment every night right at the resort.  The food buffet was so yummy, and the kids enjoyed the unlimited choices for every meal.  Walking around the resort, we came across wildlife such as spider monkeys, iguanas, and birds of all varieties.  There were also Mayan ruins that we were able to climb on right on the property.  My Fitbit said that we walked roughly 6 miles a day.  Each day, we floated along a different underground river in some chilly water, but we didn't mind a bit.  We highly recommend this trip, booked through Costco Travel.  The kids said they enjoyed it more than Disney!
