I’ve been in love with Mexico for many years now… It’s the first place Irek and I ever travelled to together, so it holds a very special place in my heart. We just recently spent a week in beautiful Playa Mujeres at Villa Del Palmar Cancun for October Wellness month. Below are some highlights…
The grounds at Villa Del Palmar were beautiful. There is nothing like tropical vegetation in my opinion- so luscious and colourful! The resort has 5 swimming pools, 4 restaurants and 6 bars- so lots of variety! There are also many activities you can participate in… from volleyball, to kayaking, to paddle boarding, to fitness and yoga classes! It’s the perfect place to bring the family as the options really are endless.
The beaches in Mexico are absolutely stunning– it’s one of the reasons why I love the country so much. Villa Del Palmar‘s beach was no exception… the white sand was so soft and gorgeous! We spent most of our time there and I managed to fit in quite a few beach yoga sessions, which I was super happy about. I always feel most inspired by the sand and sea… A great place to reflect and focus on gratitude and love. We’ll definitely be heading back to Mexico again next year. 🙂
We had a beautiful one bedroom suite at Villa Del Palmar with views of the entire resort and the sea. I highly recommend going with a one bedroom suite if you do visit the resort… It adds so much to the whole experience.
There are lots of options for dining at Villa Del Palmar but Irek and I both agreed that our favourite restaurant was Hiroshi (Japanese). It was really nice, with lots of vegan options. The other restaurants didn’t have too many plant-based dishes, however, it was super easy to just eliminate the animal products and replace with extra veggies. We never had an issue at any of the restaurants, they were all super accommodating and provided us with really nice alternatives.
I will say the one thing that stands out about Mexico and Villa Del Palmar, is the stellar service. The friendliness of the servers, cooks and hosts was incredible– we always felt welcomed and taken care of (which immediately sets the mood for your dining experience).
Just quickly wanted to mention all the beautiful animal friends we made at Villa Del Palmar! One of my favourite things about traveling to different countries is seeing all the different creatures… They’re so beautiful and I love them all. From top down we have- Iggy (iguana), Beak (sandpiper), Pineapple (kitten), Cornelius (great tailed grackle). Tell me you don’t love them too?! 🙂
Irek and I loved our time at Villa Del Palmar… We participated in a few really awesome fitness sessions for October Wellness including crossfit, yoga, aquatic fitness and kayaking. We weren’t able to capture these moments as we both participated – but once I receive some photos from the resort I’ll definitely post on my Instagram, so stay tuned!
A huge thank you to Villa Del Palmar for having us, and for all of the amazing memories. This resort is perfect for families, or for people who enjoy being active- as there are tons of activities to keep you busy!
I hope everyone has a beautiful week- sending lots of love.
