Vacation: Xcaret

Counting Down The Days: Occidental Grand Xcaret Trip


I have this great editorial calendar that I created and no where on it does it have a post about our vacation next year. And yet, it’s pretty much the only thing on my mind. Not a day goes by anymore that Nathan and I aren’t asking “is it January yet?” or “can we go on vacation now?”

So I figured I should actually just go with what’s on my mind versus what I planned weeks ago.

January is still forever away, but I am SO ready for it to be here. It’s been a crazy year for us personally with the move and what feels like an endless amount of family visits. And then the business has had it’s two best months yet in June and July which is good, but it made for a super busy summer for us. 

I’ve been in need of a major vacation for months now. I’m totally beat and am ready for lots of sun, sand between my toes, gorgeous sunsets, delicious food, tropical drinks and a whole lot of R&R. All of it sounds like pure bliss right now.


Which means I’m counting down the days until we can roam the grounds of Occidental Grand Xcaret. We were able to tour the grounds when we joined the Occidental Vacation Club so we already know how beautiful the resort is. Not only that, but the resort has this little river (pictured above) that goes directly into the Xcaret Park so we’ll be able to head over to the underground rivers whenever we want! I’m super excited to go snorkeling in them.

It may still be five months away, but I’m going to spend those next five months (especially the cold days like yesterday!) daydreaming about an endless amount of sun, beach, food and drinks.

where are you going on your next vacation?
