Girls Getaway to Cancun - Day 4

While some of us had “too much fun” the night before, the adventure seekers woke up the next morning to an exciting day! We arrived at Selvatica (, an award winning attraction in Cancun, and quickly got geared up for our 12-station zip line experience (and getting dressed was half the fun; well, maybe 15%). With helmets, cables, and straps all in place (and in places you didn’t know existed), it was time to climb up and zip through Mexico’s lush, tropical canopy. It was such a great feeling to effortlessly glide over the treetops. I must have looked like an expert zipper because at my third station, the guys decided to turn me upside down and send me over. I won’t lie; I was a little scared and not quite ready to be upside down traveling at high speeds without any knowledge of how I would stop once I reached the other side. Here’s the video: My apologies to Cheech, once again, for kicking him in the video.

After the zipline fun, we climbed into Selvatica’s army trucks for a quick ride to the Cenote, which is a freshwater sinkhole where we enjoyed more zip lining fun. This time, however, we let go mid-zip and plunged into the water. We had so much fun and were disappointed to leave, but we were starving and a delicious lunch was waiting for us back at Selvatica’s headquarters.

Selvatica also offers horseback riding, night zip lining, Segway tours, corona buggy adventures and more, so be sure to stop by next time you are in Mexico. There’s a reason they are ranked the #1 attraction in Mexico.

Our next stop was El Cid Marina for a sunset sail and snorkel. We boarded the boat and left the harbor excited to see the sun covering the top of our boat, which made for the perfect sunning deck. Some of us snorkeled the reef and some stayed on the boat enjoying Bloody Marys. But the party started when crew member Mario unveiled a shot glass and tequila. No one could say no to him, and we felt like we were in college on Spring Break! Guess he knew we needed to “Leave Your Baggage at Home®.”

I finished the trip with a lovely group meal at Le Meridien, where we reminisced about our short time together and exchanged contact information in order to stay in touch. Thank you Le Meridien, Cancun CVB and Cessie Cerrato for a fantastic trip to Cancun! Adios.

The louis vuitton handbag is the latest must-have bag to come out of the louis vuitton replica handbags line. When it came out two years ago, despite its hefty price, cheap louis vuitton handbags was sold out in a matter of weeks, days in some locations.

Indeed the Caribbean Sea is unusually warm with incredibly blue water and at most times is very calm. Look down any beach, at almost any time, and you will see people enjoying the calming effects that seem to instantly relieve the tensions of everyday life.
