This certainly was a weekend we will never forget!
We started our journey early in the morning at the Tampa airport. We flew all the way to Ft. Lauderdale before flying over to Cancun.. That will never make sense to me, but we made it!
A car service met us at the airport and drove us 45 min to the Thompson Hotel in Playa del Carmen. This was some of the best customer service we have ever experienced! As soon as we met the driver, he offered us ice water, a cool towel AND an ice-cold beer for the drive! Uhm, Yes please... He also gave us the WiFi password for the car. Let me tell you, we felt SUPER fancy. LOL
We arrived to check in and even though we were a little early, they had our room ready and waiting for us. We dropped our stuff off and immediately went exploring... mainly because we were starving. :)
We decided to eat on the rooftop at Cinco. We had some deliciously fresh ceviche, fish tacos and an octopus tostada. They kept offering us beer, but as we had just arrived, all we really wanted was water. Well... we should have taken the beer, because the bottles of water were literally twice the cost of a beer... Lesson learned!
We met up with the rest of the group for drinks and then dinner. It was the perfect way to unwind after a long travel day!
The next morning we had a VERY LARGE brunch, complete with a waffle tower!
We took an extensive tour of the Thompson Hotel and got to see the many different types of guest rooms. In the afternoon we had a pool party on the rooftop!
We finished off the day with Tequila Tasting at the Beach House and Dinner at C-Grill!
AND THEN! The last full day, we spent 10-12 hours on the BEST excursion ever! After we grabbed breakfast at the C-Grill at Thompson Beach House, we loaded a bus with Living Dreams Mexico and drove 2 hours into the Mayan Jungle for some ziplining in a monkey sanctuary, canoeing through cenotes, floating through a natural lazy river and ended the evening with authentic meal prepared by a Mayan village!
A Special THANKS to the Millennials in Travel group for putting on an amazing weekend! We would never hesitate for the opportunity to go back to the Thompson Hotel & Beach House in Playa del Carmen!
