I was so excited to have the opportunity to partner with Sunwing Vacations on a girls trip to Royal Hideaway Playacar resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.  I was going on this trip with Rebeca and was so excited to be traveling with her for the first time as we met at fashion school many years ago and reconnected as bloggers in recent years.  Our flight was bright and early and we met at Pearson Airport at 4am to board our Sunwing flight to Cancun.  It was a very easy flight and we were thrilled to touch down in Mexico and to meet the Sunwing Crew to take us to the hotel.

The drive from the Cancun airport was only about 45 minutes and we were so happy to finally arrive at the resort grounds.  "Stunning" is the best word to describe our first impression on the resort as we walked into the beautiful lobby which was filled with luxurious pink floral arrangements and high ceilings.  We were greeted with hand towels and two glasses of champagne which we happily sipped on as we were being checked in.  We were then given the grand tour of the grounds and were shown all the amazing facilities that were available to us.  From dining, to the bars, entertainment center and spa, everything was immaculate.  We were then shown to our room where we were greeted by our personal concierge and we were thrilled to find a stunning and serene space where we would spend the next 4 days.

The first day we spent exploring the grounds and shooting some content for our Instagram while enjoying a couple of refreshing beverages from the pool bar (the margaritas, daiquiris and pina coladas were incredible)!  In the afternoon we relaxed for a bit to do work on our laptops outside on the terrace of our room.  Dinner was served with a live Jersey Boys inspired performance and we were treated to an excellent meal and cocktails, while singing along with the show.

In the days that followed we got to take part in so many incredible activities.  A highlight was the relaxing facial in the hotel spa (it was heavenly)!  I also took advantage of the excellent gym facilities for my morning workouts.  We were educated about different tequilas at a tequila tasting, played volleyball, kayaked, danced to live music and dined in style during the remainder of our trip.  The food was definitely a highlight for me and it was excellent.  From steak to grouper to tacos to ceviche...there were so many fresh and delicious options!

We also explored Quinta Avenida, which is only a short drive from the hotel.  The shopping here is incredible and it is right on the beach!  It is the perfect place to explore, pick up some souvenirs or sip on a cold beverage by the ocean.  There is something for everyone including excellent restaurants and nightlife.

On the last night we had a beautiful tasting menu prepared by the chef in a private room at the hotel.  It was the perfect send-off to a perfect few days.  Rebeca and I had such an amazing time filled with laughs and memories that will last a lifetime for me.  I feel so lucky that we were able to share this experience together.  It was so refreshing and inspiring and I will never forget this experience.

Thank you so much to Sunwing Vacations and Royal Hideaway Playacar!
