We’ve been gone for a bit, but we have not forgotten about you all. We have just returned from holiday in Mexico, so for the month of July we were caught up preparing for our first international travel together as a couple. Which came with a bit learning curve for us, you know when you think you’re prepared but you never really know until you go through it kind of experience? Haha. . Yeah it was one of those times.
It feels good to be back and we wanted to share our trip and document it for ourselves also. Being our first international trip together to decided to go to Mexico because it wasn’t too long of a flight or too big of a time change for us. We stayed in Playa Del Carmen which is centrally located between Cancun and Tulum, Mx.
First arriving to Mexico we dealt with immigration then customs at the airport, after all of that chaos we finally stepped foot outside and were immediately hit with what felt like 98.2% humidity. It was seriously insane, we have never anything like this. Our camera lenses would fog up as soon as we went outside. It was different and pretty cool for us to experience.
Once we finally checked into the hotel we were completely worn out. Our flight landed were super early in the morning 5am in Mexico to be exact. Which meant we really landed 3am our time back in California, so we were tired for sure.
We had so many new experiences and we tried to see as much as we could during this trip so here are some pictures of our time there.
First place is breath-taking, Tulum we visited the old Mayan ruins and relaxed on a beach for as long as we could it was such a stunning magical and HOT place for us. As you can see in a picture we needed umbrellas for shade nonetheless, a must see!
We also visited Chichen Itza which was a much bigger scale Mayan ruin here we really got the chance to feel and be immersed into their rich history, culture, beliefs and rituals.

Just to show you guys how humid it was our cameras would fog up the instant you took them out.
As you can see we were sweaty!
Took a ferry ride to an island near by Cozumel, did not capture too many pictures but we grabbed a quick dinner and also enjoyed some shops.
Visited Xcaret theme park, so much wild life and water activities in one park it was cool to see. A very refreshing trip.
Hope you guys enjoyed and Please leave any packing, international traveling tips and tricks in the comments! Oh, and we want to know if any of you have ever visited Mexico share your experience with us too. We would love to hear from you guys 🙂
