wanderlust | playa del carmen, mexico

wanderlust | playa del carmen, mexico

For the first time in like ever.. I’m planning to vacate to a warmer climate for Christmas. Although I love Christmas in New York City, I absolutely hate being cold. I’ve never been to Mexico, mainly because of all the craziness going on down there with drug lords and all, but it’s definitely a trip I’d love to take. Christmas in Mexico has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

The Mister & I would pack up our things and head down to the beautiful Rosewood Maykoba Riviera Maya resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Surrounded by emerald jungle and pristine white beaches, Rosewood Mayakoba is a Riviera Maya resort that defines a private world of rare luxury and refined beauty with its own signature restaurant, exclusive spa sanctuary and no less than 130 exquisite suites. The resort’s refined design combines natural elements such as limestone, rich wood and water with contemporary décor and fittings, creating a sophisticated but unpretentious atmosphere. As a result, each suite is a unique and stylish refuge with high-quality finishes, modern comforts and delightful outdoor features.

This is definitely another one of those splurge trips since rooms cost anywhere from $475-$1200 a night ($8500 if you’d like to ball out of control with the Presidential Suite).. but look at this place, it’s so worth it.

this past weekend my boyfriend and i celebrated 8 7 years (after a miscalculation from my part). if you’ve been in a relationship or even married for as long as i have, you’ll know when it comes to date night things can start getting a little routine. i’m sure my boyfriend always hate the ‘so, what are we doing tonight?’ questions when friday or saturday swings around. there have been months where we’ve seen everything in the theater, then it’s like.. ok, now what. and sure, we can restaurant hop until we drop — afterall, we are in new york city, but i’ll end up gaining while my boyfriend stays perfectly the same. so we needed a resolution. something to save date night. then a coworker put me onto a site that one of his good friends started: HowAboutWe couples.
