CHIC ON VACAY : {GIRLS TRIP – PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO}

A few weeks ago, two of my very best friends and I went on our first ever girls trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.  Needless to say, we had an absolute blast!  It was the perfect little getaway filled with laughter, relaxation, and an abundance of delicious food and drinks.

We stayed at Platinum Princess Yucatan – Adults Only Resort and opted for the swim-out suite.  This was by-far the best decision we made for this entire trip.  It was a stunning view and we spent a good majority of our time there in our pool.  It was so perfect because we had our own pool space, we could easily access our room when needed and they had pool side drink service so we didn’t even have to go to the bar.  The water was absolutely perfect and on our last day, we had a really hard time saying goodbye to this pool.  I can’t tell you how much we loved this amenity.

Brittanie got us these super cute monogramed hats for the trip that helped shade us from the strong sun.  I must say, it also looked fabulous with my swim suit.

This adorable little guy came by to see us and tested out the waters!  These Coatis roam all around the resort.  We saw several of them while we were there.

Of course we also spent plenty of time at the beach.  We were in chill mode so we just laid out and enjoyed the water, but the resort had plenty of beach activities for those that wanted to partake.  {We couldn’t help but have a few mini photo shoots on the beach – Misty is a fab photog!}

We found our favorite bar (and bartender) on day two.  Katy made the best espresso martinis, mojitos and margaritas.  We paid her more than a few visits each day – LOL!  I will definitely be recreating this espresso martini in the near future!

Another fantastic decision was to bring these cups with us.  A friend of mine knew we were going on this trip and had been to an all-inclusive resort before, so she gifted these to us with the advice of taking them with.  It was so sweet of her and also a genius idea!  We filled them up with water several times the first day because we were feeling quite dehydrated, then on day two, we had Katy fill them up with her delicious mojitos and headed to the beach.  This was so great because we didn’t have to make as many trips to the bar.  (The cups they use at the resort are teeny-tiny!)

I pretty much lived in hats and this swim cover-up the entire trip.  Resort life is the absolute best!  I can’t wait to go back with the hubs next year and hope to make our girls trip an annual tradition.
