Some times it’s just too complicated having to figure everything out by yourself in a foreign place. Dealing with the language, the currency, finding the right hotel and choosing what to eat from a menu in Spanish can be a pain.
For this reason, Cindy Bigras greatly appreciated that her last trip to Cancun, Mexico was one of her favoritedestinationsever. She wrote about her trip with a woman of the same age last year on GoNOMAD.com.
“There are hundreds of all inclusive resorts along the Boulevard Kukulan, the main route running through the Hotel Zone which is shaped like the number “7”. Shops, bars, souvenir shops, and restaurants are aplenty, too. Dreams Cancun Resort, located at the northernmost tip of the zone, has the best location because it is surrounded by ocean and beautiful white sand beaches on all sides….even the internal part of the resort has a water view of the lagoon and dolphin area.
My friend, Melody, and I wanted a getaway to the tropics for relaxation and a chance to do nothing at all! No men, kids, or work – just two women friends of a certain age. As the northeast was getting pounded by the white stuff, we planned to yak, nap, and swim. OK, there was also mention of wanting to spend some time at a swim up bar!”
All inclusives make all of these questions moot—food is included, the menus are in English, the prices include transfer to and from the airport, and the rooms are usually very nice. In short, the perfect simple winter vacation in Mexico’s most popular city.
