Honeymoon do over and moments from the first..

As most of you know my husband and I did not have the greatest Honeymoon. Shenandoah National Park was perfection, but we left abruptly and did not get to experience all that we could have; we got about three days in, i think.

Just because I loved it so much, here’s a quick recap-

We ventured out to Luray Caverns to see the depths of the Earth. Pretty cool and worth the tour. Not recommended for the elderly or though who cannot handle lots of steps; both up and down.

Gorgeous, isn’t it? Unfortunately, we left before I got any shots of the inside and we never got to hike to any waterfalls. But, everything happens for a reason. Which brings me to Mexico…

After returning home and taking some time, we decided we HAD to try to get away and stay away. Friends had just gotten back from Mexico and said what a great time they had, so we went all in and tried El Dorado Royale, a Spa Resort by Karisma. Located in beautiful Playa Paraiso, Mexico. (Flew into Cancun; about 30 min. out) Go here to see my trip advisor review.

This resort is a Four Diamond(AAA) resort and they grow all their own organic food!!! How awesome right? When we arrived, we were driven back through lush gardens to a gorgeous hotel and were greeted with champange and cold towels. We relaxed at the bar until our room was ready and then got a ride from one of the many golf carts to our room.

We went for a hike in the Jungle and saw monkeys! It was CRAZY!!! also, kind of scary.
