The day after Arli's wedding, we left for our luxurious honeymoon in Cancun. We stayed in a all-inclusive resort, the Riu Palace Las Americas.

Noticing our shiny new rings, they upgraded us honeymooners to an ocean-view junior suite. 

We had a spectacular view from the balcony! Most days, we relaxed at the beach ...

and the pool, where we even ordered a few margaritas from the swim-up bar.

One day, we took an excursion to a nearby island, Isla Mujeres. We sailed there on a big catamaran with about thirty other tourists.

When we were almost to the island, we stopped for a snorkeling lesson!

Then we had some time for my favorite activity - shopping! I found a pretty turquoise and coral bracelet.

The day ended with a late lunch at a secluded beachfront restaurant.

Back at the resort, we learned how to sail our own catamaran.

When we weren't in the water, we were probably eating at one of the hotel's many restaurants {Buffet, Steakhouse, Brazilian, and Mexican.}

It was the perfect getaway!
