In a few days I will be off to Mazatlan for a Christmas beach vacation. I am travelling with my mom, step dad and a family friend. This is the first vacation the three of us have taken together, and the only one I have taken with my mom since our Across Canada Trip (which was also with my best friend, her mom and a family friend of theirs) sooooo wish us luck 😛
As I mentioned before, I have never been to Mexico, or taking a beach vacation for that matter. I really have no idea what to expect and for the first time ever, no itinerary. But this is exactly what I need! After three months of working two jobs, I am tired and ready to sit by the pool/ocean in my bathing suit, a cool drink in one hand and a book in the other.
Of course there a few activities that I want to partake in while I am there such as :
– Golfing. As we are staying at a Golf resort.
– Snorkelling, I would like to give it a try again.
– Check out the Turtle Hatchery on the resort
– Explore the City of Mazatlan
– Drink Tequila. Of course.
– Eat delicious authentic food.
–– Watch a sunrise on the ocean.
I am SUPER excited to be staying in my king size ocean view room with a balcony at the Estrella Del Mar resort. LOOK at that view, that bed and bathroom. Expect a review of Estrella Del Mar upon return.
On another note, this will be my first Christmas not at home ever. I am feeling a bit weird about that, as Christmas has always been about tradition for me. But, last Christmas felt a bit weird as well, so maybe a break is needed. And really, Christmas on the beach? It can’t be that bad can it? 😛 Plus I can still partake in some of those traditions when I get home.
We fly out Saturday morning, so not to far away now! I am all packed and ready to go. Can’t wait!
