Scott and I were scheduled to leave for a winter getaway last Sunday. This tropical paradise, Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya – All Inclusive resort, recently opened in Riviera Maya and was to be our sunny escape for the week.
Doesn’t this pool look inviting?
If you’ve been following along on the blog you know that we had to postpone our plans due to Scott’s back injury. If you will indulge me, I’m feeling the need to bask in a few moments of this tropical paradise today since it will only live in my dreams for the time being.
We always love a sea view…
What we learned in planning this vacation? The one and only travel essential is to purchase travel insurance. Scott had the presence of mind to purchase ours through Allianz Travel Insurance and we are so glad he did. As it turns out, we are not out any cost for having to postpone (or cancel) our vacation. Paying fees would only add insult to injury for losing out on a vacation.
A bonus of being home most the week is that I have more time for my growing travel concierge business. I have several clients who will be traveling to Unlimited Vacations resorts in coming months. Among them Sarah will be traveling to Secrets St. James Montego Bay in Jamaica and Kim will is headed to Secrets Aura Cozumel. If you are looking to travel with unlimited luxury at an excellent discount, learn more here. I would love to send you to paradise!
I’m missing the sun, sand and sea this week but we will get back there some day. Our summer visit to Zoetry and Silversands, also in Riviera Maya, are happy memories. Despite his nearly constant pain, Scott and I managed a long weekend in wine country, and I’ll look forward to sharing some wonderful new finds with you.
Are you enjoying a winter vacation this season?
