When we first got to our resort and saw everything that there was to do, Phil started trying to figure out how we could fit in everything haha. I had to remind him that it was okay if we didn’t do everything-this time was about relaxing and spending time with each other, and we wanted to leave feeling refreshed. So we spend most of our time relaxing in the beach or pool, got massages outdoors together, visited the hot tub spa, and ate lots of yummy food.
In advance, we did plan one excursion to Isla Mujeres; to swim with the dolphins. This is something I had been wanting to do for about 10 years and we were so excited it was an option. So on Wednesday at 7:30am we were picked up from our resort and taken to a dock where we loaded onto a boat with a bunch of other people. It was about 40 minutes to the Island, and once we were there, Phil and I were in the first group to go out with the dolphins.
Our boat that took us to the Island and the start of our time with the dolphins.
Anyone who wanted to had the opportunity to be pulled through the water.
And also to be pushed by the dolphins. I was a bit scared, but Phil loved it.
We had about an hour with the dolphins, and it was one of my favorite experiences in my entire life. The dolphins were so friendly, as well as intelligent! After our time with the dolphins, we spent the rest of the day on the island. We ate at an all you can eat restaurant, went swimming in the infinity pool, took a small boat out with a few others to snorkel (that was AMAZING too!), got to swim with stingrays and nurse sharks, and got free Starbucks drinks. Everything was included in our excursion and by the time we got back on the boat we were completely exhausted!
We spent the rest of our trip relaxing together on the beach and at the pool. I am so blessed to be married to someone who loves to travel and adventure as much as I do!! I am so excited for the journey God continues to take us on!
