In New York, the winters can be very long. In our area, our school district has a winter break every February. This winter break, my Hubby surprised us with a vacation to Cancun, Mexico at the all inclusive Hotel Xcaret. We booked our vacation thru our friend Marianne Mecurio of Genesis Travel Planners . Marianne has booked our last 3 cruises and had been suggesting to us about an all inclusive. I was so excited, so I knew I had to be prepared because we only 6 weeks to get ready!
Can I just say this? I love Amazon Prime! It can be truly addictive because its so convenient! So I hopped on to phone app to get the things I needed.
Who here has ever hated shopping for bathing suits? You can’t see it but my hand is raised super high! Can you feel my pain, the lighting, the walking out of the fitting room for all the world to see my pale dimply self! No thank you! Here comes Amazon Prime to the rescue! I started looking at bathing suits on the site and was amazed at the prices and the return policy. Most were free returns and at $24.99 for this suit, I figured I’d give it a shot! The quality is nice and it has washed beautifully! I also purchased 2 additional suits which are not pictured above.
When I started looking at what I had in terms of beach coverups, I was not happy either. I found the navy blue coverup (it comes in lots of colors) and purchased it for only $16.99. Its a little big (I’m only 5’2″), but the light crepe like fabric was lightweight and cool.
Ya see those shoes that look like sneakers? Those are not sneakers, but water shoes. Let me tell you- those were incredible! I walked and walked with no blisters and they dried out super quick! If you are going on a vacation with lots of water activities, cement walkways or sharp coral reef type rocks you should invest in these. This is what they are called on Amazon: Zhuanglin Women’s Quick Drying Aqua Water Shoes.
Before we returned home, my Husband, ordered a pair for himself. They are with every penny of the $26.99 price tag!
One last thing, those sandals were perfect for trekking around Mayan ruins and underground caverns. Super comfortable and well priced at $29.95. The bag they came in were super handy for travel, especially since you have to stick them back in your suitecase with all the grime and dust on them!
Hope this tips help you plan for your next Adventure!
