Honeymoon destination!

Occidental Grand Xcaret
So, this is the destination for the honeymoon, the "Occidental Grand Xcaret", it's about a one hour transfer from Cancun, and is situated minutes away from the resort town of Playa del Carmen and Xcaret Park (which boasts an interesting mix of Mayan ruins and a water park, including two underground rivers that can be snorkled along, if desired, and dolphins to be swum with)...Nearby are the spectacular ruins at Tulum, Xel Ha and Chichen Itza...Jungle adventures including zip-lining, Jeep Safari and Quad Bike experiences are available...

The hotel itself has 11 international restaurants (including Le Buffet, Senora Grill, Los Olivos, La Hacienda, D'Oriental, La Pizzeria, El Pescador, Paco's Tacos, El Lago and the Royal Club), 10 bars (including one in a pool), 5 of the aforementioned swimming pools, 10 whirlpools, spa and sauna/steam room and a private secluded beach.

Free activities include archery, mini-golf, tennis, a gym, volleyball, dance lessons, yoga and aerobics...(which all sounds terribly tiring)...

Current weather in Cancun is 24 degrees, 86% humidity (sounds good) although it can get as hot as 36 degrees at this time of year (although hopefully it stays cooler)!

You'll just have to imagine what it's like until I get back though, as internet access is rather limited, so posting over the next fortnight will be sporadic at best...

Two more sleeps to go! ;)

It still doesn't feel quite real, but I'm really glad we left it until now, there was no way I would have been able to cope with going straight to Mexico after the wedding, think my brain would have 'asploded... ;)
