Forget Cali. Cancun is officially the new “golden coast” in my book. Today I explored the JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa’s luxurious grounds and staked out an ocean-view, poolside lounge chair for most of the afternoon. In fact, the soft Caribbean breeze relaxed me so much that I fell asleep with a glass of iced tea in my hand,yikes! After soaking in the rays, I braved the turquoise waves and let myself get tossed around by the sea a little bit before our fantastic dinner at the brand new southwestern style Sedona Grill.
Favoring the true Mexican flavor, I opted for a large chili pepper stuffed with spiced rice and slathered in the Marriott Sedona’s signature spicy Mexican sauce over black beans. Now I’m off for a moonlight walk along the beach to scout out giant sea turtles who’ve decided to lay their eggs on Cancun’s white shores. Early tomorrow morning we head for an adventure day of zip-lining, hiking in the rain forest and visiting the Mayan ruins. Then, vamos a la playa!
