It was finally here. Our anniversary trip that we had planned to take for our 15th wedding anniversary but ended up taking the month after our 16th. It was worth the wait! We flew out of KC at 5am Friday morning and arrived in Cancun by 11:30 am. We had to wait awhile through customs but got out and to our shuttle pretty smoothly. I felt safer by the minute on our drive into the resort and the security checkpoints we had to go through to get into our resort.

Our room wasn't quite ready when we got there so we wandered around checking everything out and then ate at the buffet since we were starving and we had to get our week started of endless eating!

loved the cool sand...much different than the burning hot sand of some beaches that may bring out the worst in some people :)

this was at the end of the walkway from the lobby...ahead was the pool/pools, the restaurant/pool bar and then the beach/ocean.

our room with two t-shirts since we "liked" them on facebook

the little courtyard outside our room...our room was the one on the bottom floor. yay, no stairs!

this was our beach access from our building...really could it get any more beautiful?

this was the walkway walking from the pool area. it was a nice long walk that we actually loved since we felt like all we were doing was eating at least we had a nice walk to go eat!

during the cloudier times we opted to sit under the little huts. the beaches were not packed. there were always plenty of chairs.

For awhile we thought we were the only Americans at the resort. Most everyone was French or Italian. No one spoke English! We did end up meeting several Americans during the week.

Be forewarned, i have lot's of pictures so it's going to take me several posts even though i have narrowed it down a lot...

Can't wait to see the rest! Love that place. I would love to visit some of the other Catalonia resorts but I think this one has the best beach of all of them from what I have read.
