A few months ago a friend invited me to Cancun… Honestly, I wasn´t very excited about this trip – I know! Only a girl like me cannot be excited about Cancun, but this is how I am-.
Once we arrived, on my first day in Cancun, we decided to go to the beach and we chose Mandala Beach Club Cancun for this ocassion. It was a very nice experience, the food was delicious and the Martinis we ordered were out of this world! Also, the music is perfect! They have a live DJ who played some house beats assuring a relaxing, young and wild ambience!
That night we went to Palazzo for a special themed party. If you are fan of electronic music and the color red is your favorite, you will love this place. I can’t remember how many bottles we drank that Saturday, but it was definitely a great night out, because suddenly it was 5 am! So instead of going home, we went to ‘Playa Delfines’ to enjoy the sunrise and it was B E A U T I F U L! As the sun is rising at the horizon you can see how the water turns from black to its famous blue and turquoise colors. This is a Blue Flag Beach (meaning this beach meets certain standard of excellence in areas like safety, amenities and cleanliness) making it the best beach in Cancun to tan your body and swim a little –I did both-.
Also at Playa Delfines you can find the big ‘CANCUN’ sign and like everyone else I took the mandatory picture to show off once I got back home.
After spending the morning enjoying the sun, we went downtown to the famous Market 28. It is a flea market and prices are cheaper than at the stores in the hotel zone; so I bought some souvenirs for my family & friends. As we were starving we just stopped to eat at a little restaurant there and the food was good too –though I prefer Mandala Beach´s menu-.
For my last whole day in this paradise, we went snorkeling to ‘Isla Mujeres’, I watched many turtles and fishes swimming at the reef and the only thing I regret about my little trip to Cancun is that I forgot my underwater camera!
Of course for my last night I had to go back to the party center, this time my friends and I chose Mandala Nightclub. Something that surprised me a little was that even on Sundays the people celebrate as if it were Friday and they didn’t have to work or study the next day!
This was my first little taste of Cancun, but I will back for more!
