Just in time for Vandy’s Bachelorette Party, Cancun’s Villa del Palmar Cancun unveiled the third and final phase of the resort in December. This five-star hotel, which is situated on serene Playa Mujeres in Cancun, Mexico, features 415 luxurious guest rooms, new restaurants and a tranquil jungle-themed spa.
After some intense wedding planning, Vandy was ready for some R&R. “I am very excited for the opportunity to go to Cancun,” she said.
Heather and Carly were apprehensive about leaving their kids for the weekend, but that changed as the departure date approached. “I can't wait to get to Cancun! I'm mostly excited about relaxing and enjoying time with my girlfriends,” Carly said. “Even when we get together for an event at home, we spend most of the time cooking, chasing our kids around, cleaning up....then it's over! It will be so nice to catch up with the girls without those distractions.”
Cancun is a world-class tourist resort destination and a thriving community of 450,000 full-time residents. Its greatest asset is its natural marine playground that sits on 14 miles of white sand and enjoys sun more than 200 days a year.
After I almost missed our departure plane in Orlando (don’t ask), we arrived at the airport and headed straight to the “Welcome Bar” to wait for our driver we re-named E-Dog (only because we couldn’t pronounce his real name). After a few cervezas we drove through the bustling Cancun hotel zone and found our ‘home away from home’ at Villa del Palmar, which is about 30 minutes from the airport. Upon arrival at the resort, the ladies were all smiles as we were completely mesmerized by the lush grounds, blue water and white sandy beaches. Each of Villa del Palmar Cancun's luxuriously appointed guest rooms has a private terrace and is furnished with kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs and spacious spa tubs (plus a roomy hammock on the balcony that we loved). We quickly changed into our swimsuits, made our way to the beach, ordered cocktails and lunch at the tiki bar, and then parked ourselves in the resort’s beachside lounge chairs.
Before the trip, Carly explained, “my expectations for Cancun are to get some sun and relaxation, enjoy great food and drinks by the water, and most importantly, have quality time with my friends in a fun atmosphere.” CHECK :)
