Remember that time I said I’d post here on Bird’s Next when in Mexico? And then I didn’t and it’s been 2.5 weeks since I’ve been back and still nothing here? Ooops…
Truth be told, I didn’t want to make you jealous (thank me in the comment section below). My friend Carolyn and I went to Cozumel, Mexico for 11 days/10 nights to treat ourselves to an international getaway for completing a three-year master’s degree! We wanted to go somewhere beautiful, but being students, we were on a budget. We scoured LivingSocial and Groupon (for months) through their trip offers to see if we could land a deal. We were wary of using a discount website for a trip…but wow, we definitely were blessed with a great vacation!
The LivingSocial Deal: For five nights, two people will enjoy and ALL-INCLUSIVE vacation, including all international and domestic drinks (read big girl drinks) snacks, and meals. The deal also includes a deluxe, ocean front room, chocolate covered strawberries and wine upon arrival, 50% off all spa-treatments, and tax/gratuities included. Total price for five nights: $670.00! (!!!!!)
(Sorry this post is mostly about this amazing deal…but anyone else out there find a good deal and want to share it with everyone and their momma?!) The resort didn’t disappoint. There were two jacuzzis, three pools (two were infinity pools that overlooked the ocean), and each pool had a swim-up bar. BLISS.
In fact, we spent almost every day pool/beach side and it never got old!
Next post will focus on our adventure snorkeling in two coral reefs off the coast and our visit to a private beach that had water trampolines, paddleboards, kayaks, and the like.
