Resort: Mahogany Bay
Great location for: This property is great for anyone, really! Rooms vary from quaint studios for 2 to sprawling 3 bedroom suites for larger families or groups of friends. The resort has several shops onsite for coffee, ice cream, yoga, spa, etc, and more are opening soon. It has the feel of a small resort community with everything at your fingertips.
Unique resort feature: One of the best features about this resort is the private beach club located 10-15 minutes away by boat. The beach at the club is calm and clear, with Bali Beds dotting the shallow water shore and a Great House for dining and lounging.
Location: Belize is located just south of Mexico along the eastern coast. To get to the island of Ambergris Cay, you'll fly into Belize City, then board the small puddle jumper to San Pedro, where you'll then be taken to the Lobby. It sounds like a lot, but the small plane ride into San Pedro is a tour by itself. The views are incredible!
Final thought: Add this location to your bucket list for sure!

Resort: Secrets Huatulco
Who is this destination/resort best suited for? Adults only resort, great for honeymoons, anniversary trips and adult vacations. The resort had a relaxed yet fun vibe. There is not a lot of nightlife, however you can certainly create your own party atmosphere if traveling with friends like we did.
What is unique/different about this resort? Very secluded, easy to navigate resort, lovely open air Sky Bar lounge with amazing views. All of the rooms face the ocean. Beautiful spa on top of a hill that lends to incredible views of the resort, beach and ocean!
What is unique about this destination? Huatulco is located on the Pacific side of Mexico, south of Acapulco in the state of Oaxaca. Huatulco has more of that old world Mexico feel as it is not as modernized as other Mexico resort areas, but still felt safe. The landscape is very rugged but beautiful and the weather was absolutely perfect! 90 degrees and sunny every day…not a cloud in the sky! Huatulco is made up of 9 different beautiful bays…a must see! Be sure to take a day and book an excursion to enjoy a boat tour of these majestic bays.
Anything else? The staff at this resort was amazing-taking care of our every need. Can’t wait to go back someday!
