I hate to admit it but before my recent trip to Club Med-Cancun, I think I was a bit of a travel snob towards Club Med type vacations. I thought Club Med was for travelers who didn’t have a sense of adventure and wanted everything nicely packaged for them. I did go last year to Club Med Turkoise because it was sort of a family vacation. I really didn’t think I would be going again after using my travel credit from last years trip. However, I am a now an official Club Med fan. Well, at least on Facebook. There really is something for every type of traveler. Whether you want to just chill out at the beach or want do some of the excursions. There was plenty of adventure on my trip. I went water skiing in the lagoon home to a crocodile that the staff has affectionately named Albert. Swam in the ocean where the day before a barracuda joined the water aerobics class just for some fun. The best part was that I really did not have to worry about anything. The only decision I made during my week trip was what I wanted to eat, drink or do. And sometimes that was already done for me. For example, before I even knew I was thirsty the “Beach Boy”, would show up next to my little piece of heaven on the playa with a cold lemonade. Sometimes its just nice to check out and not have to do anything. Here are my top five favorite things at Club Med Cancun:
1. Lunch at the restaurant by the water
2. Showers at the beach
3. Yoga at the beach
5. The colorful sky
After this experience, I definitely want to go back soon to Club Med soon- like right now.
