I Wouldn’t Mind Having a Christmas in the Mexican Caribbean
I don’t know of anyone in the world that has visited the Caribbean coast in Mexico and has not fallen in love with it. It’s certainly one of the many jewels of my country that I feel very proud of telling people about.
In my opinion, spending Christmas, or the Holiday season, in this part of Mexico is worth having. I know. I know. This time of the year is to be with your family and loved ones. But who said the family can’t be away from home. I’m going to tell you why I think this way, and for that I’m going to go a few years back.
When I was a little girl, my family used to choose a beach in Mexico to spend the last week of the year. For those who don’t know, it’s the perfect time of the year to be at the beach. The ocean water is warm and there are no crowds. So, it has now become a tradition in the Vargas family since. We spend time together, as family and loved ones, while enjoying one of the best things that Mexico has to offer. We believe that this is a win win for the whole family.
Now that you are thinking about it as an option for this year, I’ll give you some of my other options. These are the places and hotels I’ve already been, some others I desperately want to be, and are already on my bucket list.
Aldea Thai Luxury
Aldea Thai is located in the well-known Playa del Carmen, about 50 minutes away from Cancún International Airport. There are many luxury condos available for short rentals. It’s perfect for families or groups.
Aldea Thai has such an amazing and calmed vibe. It’s close to Quinta Avenida where many of the best restaurants, bars, and nightlife are located. In your stay, check out Playa Mamitas where you’re sure going to have a good time. Quien dijo fiesta?
A home for thinkers and dreamers who believe in the liberating power of creativity and self discovery.
Casa Malca is another paradise on earth.
Nature at its best. A place where you can be away from everything, but closer to yourself and your loved ones.
Picture this: crystal clear views, feet buried in the white sand, cold drink in hand, and nothing but the sound of the waves.
As I’m writing this, I’m thinking, “What am I doing here writing this post, I should be there already.” No te creas!
Cozumel Island is not as big as you think. You can actually rent a car –un bochito– drive around the island and enjoy the sunrise or the sunset. If you go to Cozumel, I recommend you to arrive directly to the Cozumel airport. You can rent a boat and say Feliz Año Nuevo! or Feliz Navidad! or whatever celebration.
