Mexico 2020

We ventured on down to beautiful Mexico this August! This was actually “plan C” for our summer trip due to travel restrictions from COVID-19. We had originally hoped to go to Italy with some family members but travel to there was quickly shut down before we had a chance to purchase tickets. Then, we had then hoped to go to Belize instead but the country continued to delay its opening to tourism so we settled on Mexico, and it did not disappoint! It was fairly easy to travel there and did not require any testing or quarantine. We rented a car and spent time in the Quintana Roo and Yucatan states of Mexico, and visited the following cities: Cancun, Akumal, Tulum, Valladolid, Izamal and Merida. I feel like we got a really good taste of this area of Mexico and a mix of town and beach time. Noelle did pretty well despite missing her nap most days–She mostly loved the hotel pools and wanted to spend most of her time there. It was fun to brush up on my Spanish which I haven’t used in quite some time. Overall, Mexico is a great place to vacation–We found it to be really inexpensive and easy to communicate as most individuals know some English. We are thankful we got to go despite all of the craziness of this year!

Fun facts about this trip:

I was 30-31 weeks pregnant during it.

Sadly the camera lens I usually use broke on day 2 of the trip and it forced me to use a really wide angle lens the rest of the time which was an interesting challenge.

The most expensive hotel we stayed at was $40 US dollars per night!

All of the roads in Mexico seem to be one way, so it is impossible to back track, you just have to find another route.

I was honestly more scared about getting sick from food poisoning (being pregnant) so we were super careful about what we ate. Thankfully no sickness of any kind!

This was the first trip we’ve gone on where I didn’t make an itinerary or book all of our lodging ahead of time. We totally winged it and I have to say it was really fun travelling this way (:
