Presidents Club: Playa del Carmen, MEXICO!

Casey's work took us on a week long trip to Mexico for President's Club this year. We went to the Iberostar Grand Paraiso Resort in Playa Del Carmen. We flew into Cancun and the hotel was about an hour south of the airport. It was an adults only all inclusive resort! Pretty much like a cruise ship on land. 
There were over 50 people that went his year. We kind of felt like we were at summer camp with a bunch of adults. There are lots of couples that we really like to hang out with. So we spent lots of time hanging out on the beach, playing soccer and volleyball and eating at the buffet and various restaurants together. 
We did one full day of tours to Tulum, Coba and an cenote (an underground cave with cool water). I took lots of goPro footage and pictures of the last one so I will have to post those soon. We also went down to Akumal Bay to snorkel with the turtles then we went shopping in town. It was a perfect combination of tours and relaxing at the beach. 
I don't think I could have handled being gone longer than seven nights. I feel like it was the perfect amount of time. The first couple of days I was still adjusting to not being in mom mode and then I could finally enjoy the trip! Thanks mom for flying up to watch Chase! (and Becca and Kenz for helping out)

 I love hotel robes!

 Our friends Spencer and Madison!

 Casey won the kayaking contest and won a shirt, hat and bottle of tequila (we left it for our chambermaids as a tip!)

 COBA: yes we climbed that beast. 

 This picture does not depict how sweaty and hot we actually were….

 Just posing like a true Latin. No teeth smile :)
