Hello ♡

Recently my family and I went on a family vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

On our first day we relaxed and enjoyed the sun at a beach near our Airbnb.

On our second day we went to Akumal Beach.

We went snorkeling and swam with the turtles, also saw a few stingray!!

Here are a few pixelated photos my brother took of our adventures underwater!

The stingray were a bit scary for me…. I kept trying to swim in a horizontal position when we approached the stingray. My legs were definitely outside of the water. haha

On our third day we went to an aquatic theme park called XelHa where we went snorkeling, zip lining, cliff jumping (which only Andre – my brother did), swimming!

We even were able to swim in a Mayan Cave!

We  even were able to spot a beautiful rainbow! Isn’t it beautiful?!

On our last day, we went to visit a few places: Cenote Chikin Ha, Tulum, and Xpu Ha.

Cenote  is an underwater cave, there are a few in Mexico but we went to visit the Cenote called Chikin Ha.

Look at how blue the water is! As the light reflects into the water it made a crystal blue color in the water. It was the clearest water I have ever seen. I wish the photos would do it justice.

Later we went to visit the Maya Ruins in Tulum. This was so interesting to see.

 Next to the ruins was a view of the beautiful ocean! So we decided to take a few photos.

      Later we enjoyed lunch at Xpu Ha Beach

For our last dinner I had an amazing seafood pasta  in a restaurant located in 5th avenue of Playa Del Carmen.

I had such a great time and I cannot wait to go back again.

With so much love,

I am visiting my boyfriend in ECUADOR!!! He is from Quito, Ecuador…. oolala so latin. Over the weekend we were able to go to a tropical rainforest. Which was so exciting for me because I have never been to a tropical rainforest before.

We stayed in this cabin for one night and two days… the cabin did not have electricity which made things much more interesting and adventurous.

Look at the view from the cabin… isn’t  it so beautiful?

On the first day we went on a hike and I got to see many different trees and bugs that I have never seen before. I felt like I was able to see  Bug’s Life in real life!

The next day we were able to hike and  visit a few gorgeous waterfalls.

The water was so cold but I had the courage to swim a little in the water. Which was so much fun and a new experience for me.

The waterfalls were breathtaking.

I had such a great time and made new memories that I will never forget.

Thank you Mindo
