Postcard from // Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Brandon and I enjoyed our honeymoon in the Mexican Riviera Maya earlier this summer. It was absolutely fantastic and the beaches were more beautiful that we could have imagined! When we travel, we try to integrate into the culture and place we’re in as much as possible, so we opted to not do the all-inclusive resort experience, but get a condo and enjoy authentic local cuisine.

Well, the condo didn’t work out all that well because it didn’t have AC, so we changed mid-way to little boutique hotel, La Tortuga. It ended up being so perfect – the room and staff were great and recommended amzaing local places to eat and helped us plan excursions. It was such an amazing honeymoon!

Highlights of the trip:


  • La Pirata
  • El Fogon
  • Plank


  • Akumal Beach where you can swim with the sea turtles
  • Swimming at Cenote Azul, early early in the morning before anyone else was there!
  • Day trip to Cozumel and swimming with dolphins and manatees.
  • Xpu Ha beach
  • Massages at La Tortuga
