We just got back from our honeymoon 2 nights ago and were already missing it!
We flew into cancun last Friday and arrived at our hotel, the Valentin Imperial Maya afterwards.
Our hotel was GORGEOUS. Seriously, we didnt even upgrade our room and everything was perfect. The lobby:
And our room:
The first 2 days we layed out around the beach and pool area..then we got a little bored.
We booked two excursions then decided to rent a car for 2 days.
Our excursion to Rio Secreto:
We also went to Tulum with a tour guide, though we later would have preferred to have just rented a car and gone ourselves. Tulum was beautiful though:

Then we rented a car for 2 days and went to Coba one day:
And climbed a few structures 🙂 super fun:
The following day we decided to make the 3 hour trek to Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. Were not really the relax-at-the-beach-all-day type, so taking a drive through the Mexican countryside to ancient ruins was really the highlight of our trip.
And then we drove through the colonial city of Valladolid:
Then onto Ek Balam (my personal favorite) where you could climb on just about everything. Though it was super hot/humid, it was well worth the it.
Our honeymoon was amazing! Staying at an all inclusive has its pro’s and con’s..I would prefer not staying in one again, but for our honeymoon it was nice to not have to worry about our food making us sick, and the alcohol was a nice way to wind down after a long day.
