We’ve all heard of babymoons, the getaway couples take as expecting parents. What’s the name of the vacation for couples wanting to get pregnant?
For me, all it took was a little Don Julio and an all-inclusive Mexican resort called Moon Palace. I can definitely vouch for the pure bliss of this Cancun vacation spot because I stayed here for five nights.
What makes me miss this place:
The swim-up bars: There are two, with seats planted into lagoon-style pools for you to take shots directly from servers who pour the liquid into your mouths. (Suddenly, you feel like you’re on Spring Break again.)
The food: 10 on-site restaurants with yummy Mexican buffets, Italian, burgers and more.
The club: If you wanted to, you could drink here all night. The music is a groovable mix of familiar hip-hop, pop and Spanish dance. When we were there two years ago, the hot track was Daddy Yankee’s “Gasolina.” Lemme tell you: Tequila and “Gasolina” go down well.
For this particular Mexican vacation, a VIP membership secures access to all the Palace Resorts’ Five-Star properties, including Aventura Spa Palace Resort, Cancun Palace Resort, Sun Palace Resort, Playacar Palace Resort, Cozumel Palace Resort and others. The studio sleeps four – complete with a hot tub in the room.
And for you golfers, check out the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course or try the 72 par Playacar Palace Resort Golf Club. I was too hungover to go myself, but adventurers would enjoy the scuba lessons arranged by the hotel staff.
Honestly, though, if you never left the property, you would still have an amazing trip, and perhaps even a token to remember it by.
