Feels like Summer๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒด!

As summer continues to wind down – it is so important to enjoy as much of it as you can๐Ÿ˜Š. Especially since August is right around the corner and for many people, back to school will be a reality. Cozumel is a perfect last minute destination to enjoy a great vacation. Here is a glimpse of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/RG3hib2jhtA

Looks pretty cool, huh ๐Ÿ˜Ž! That is absolutely what you can expect from visiting Cozumel. Cozumel is such a beautiful island to see. There is just so much to do and so little time ๐Ÿ˜‚. On the occasions that I have visited, I felt like I needed more time to spend there to explore. I visited only for a day or two when I have cruised there via Carnival.

Would definitely like to spend a full week there to unwind. On this particular day, it was a joy to discover the beautiful sights and sounds of Chankanaab, an amazing beach park that has it all. Along with what you see in the video above, it also has animal shows, swimming with the dolphins ๐Ÿฌ and even tequila tasting! Absolutely my type of place to go.

I must warn you ahead of time, hours of time will disappear when you visit this wonderful place. There is so much to see and do, you will struggle to fit it all into one day. All that means is that you will have to make sure to visit again some time in the near future!

Journey to the Arch๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Some people live for an adventure and I happen to be one of those people๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Does not matter what type of transportation that I am using to get there, I enjoy the journey. It has often been said that half the fun of getting where you are going is the journey. The journey to the Cabo San Lucas Arch was a little rocky but well worth the wait, as you can see here: youtube.com/shorts/BuWr-66qFpE

What you see in the video, is the World Famous – Cabo San Lucas Arch๐Ÿ˜Ž! If you have never seen it before, here it is. What a magnificent sight it is. By the way, the main way to see the Arch and all of its splendor, is by boat ๐Ÿšค.

The boat that I am sailing on is a glass bottom boat that seats around 8 people. These type of boats are used a lot as you sail to various excursions around the world. I prefer these because you can see the fish swimming up to the floor of your boat ๐Ÿ˜‚. It is a sight to see!

This particular voyage took me to various excursions along the way (Neptune’s Finger, Lover’s Beach ๐Ÿ– etc.) Always great when you can see so many sights all in one tour๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I would definitely recommend taking this tour or any glass bottom tour when visiting your location of choice. I had a positive experience and I am sure that you will also. Always check the reviews first to determine if the expedition is the right one for you and your family ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธ- Omg ๐Ÿ˜†!

Cabo San Lucas is an absolutely gorgeous place๐Ÿ˜! I cannot wait to go back one of these days. The views are totally next level and it will leave a wonderful impression upon you. Although I have sailed various places around the world ๐ŸŒŽ, this particular expedition provided one of the most magnificent views that I have ever seen. Here is just a glimpse of the views that I saw on this incredible voyage: youtube.com/shorts/Bk-xbozIONE

The rock structure that you saw in the video is called, Neptune’s Finger. If it looks amazing on the video, it looks even more amazing in person ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I could not believe that we got as close as we did to it. It is one of the more iconic structures that you will see, sailing the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On this voyage, I also got a chance to see the magnificent, Arc of Cabo San Lucas. That video is located on this blog, just in case you are interested in viewing it. I was completely awestruck looking at that magnificent structure. The water was particularly rough during that part of the tour, so that video has a flair of excitement and adventure.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are enjoying a great weekend. Check back early and often for more travel adventures!

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿšข- Happy Friday๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun ๐Ÿคฉ: youtube.com/shorts/SfvmvgTTTnY

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am ๐Ÿ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ!

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธinto the Weekend๐Ÿคฉ

Hope you are having a great day today ๐Ÿ˜! The weekend is fast approaching and some of you may be experiencing the weekend already. If you have ever been to Cabo San Lucas, it is such a magnificent place! It has probably gotten a bad reputation over the years with people acting badly there but it is such a gorgeous place to go. I have only been there once but it left quite an indelible impression on me.

In addition to camel ๐Ÿซ riding , for the first time, I got a chance to sail the Sea of Cortez on one of the magnificent voyages of my life. Seeing all of the sights and sounds of Cabo, made me look forward to coming back soon. Cabo is one of the best locations that I have ever visited and for one of the reasons captured right here: youtube.com/shorts/lPO5UBgj1Ng

The magnificent rock structure that you saw in the video is called Neptune’s Finger and aptly so because it resembles a finger ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was a beautiful day at sea on that day and I captured many other views previously in other blog posts. Please feel free to scroll this blog for other sea adventures!

Viva Los Cabos๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฅ‚!!

Los Cabos is an absolute dream! If you have never been to Los Cabos – put it on your bucket list๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Here is a great video of the beautiful hotel that I had the pleasure of staying in:. youtube.com/shorts/FTjAcFrpBhM

The beautiful hotel seen in this video is the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel and Resort๐Ÿ˜ƒ. One of the best hotels in Los Cabos. It was an absolute dream – you most definitely would enjoy the experience. For me, it starts with the largest hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Then, it is all about the amazing amenities and the ocean front views that will absolutely capture your heart โค๏ธ.

If you have followed this blog for some time, I have highlighted many aspects of Mexico particularly Los Cabos! If you have not seen the previous posts, I encourage you to take a look. Most folks have heard of Cabo San Lucas, which is nearby. I actually went sailing on the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas.

The Hilton Los Cabos has one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, which also is an absolute plus. The waters in Los Cabos tend to be rough and choppy at times. You will enjoy countless hours hanging out at the beach ๐Ÿ–.

Hope that you will consider Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas in the future. With Spring Break approaching, this would be an excellent location to visit๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

TGIF – Letโ€™s Dance๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿพ!

Friday is here – hooray to the end of the week!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Hope that you had a great week so far and that you are having a Fantastic Friday. Something about Fridays that really gets you in the dancing mood! I am reminded of the last cruise ๐Ÿšข that I took, that had me in a dancing mood. Here is a snippet of that wonderful time: youtube.com/shorts/Z9rmuT0Ouws

Sort of gets you moving – I love that great song ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ˜ƒ. We were on our way to the Western Caribbean and as you can tell, we were just a tad bit excited ๐Ÿ˜‚. Of course seeing the number of people all together, it goes without saying that these were pre-pandemic times. Sailing as I understand it, has resumed at ports. It is fully expected with the decline in Covid cases recently, that cruising will come back in a huge way.

This particular cruise took me to Costa Maya, Belize and lastly to Cozumel. My blog contains a number of videos from all of these places. Feel free to take a step through some of my previous posts to see great, original videos that you will not find anywhere else.

If you are traveling to either of the locations that I have listed above, you are sure to have an amazing time. When you are cruising to these different ports of call, you are given some hours (5 – 6) to take in the experience of the location and then it is time to get back on the ship ๐Ÿšข to cruise to another location. It is fun ๐Ÿคฉ and you are certainly left wanting even more time onshore.

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will make your plans to travel sometime in the near future.

Life is a beach ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–!

Find your beach – popular phrase used a lot these days in commercials.๐Ÿ˜ƒFinding your beach ๐Ÿ–, really speaks to finding your happy place, beach or otherwise. With so much going on these days, we are having to find our beaches, early and often. I totally found my happy place which happens to be a beach also ๐Ÿ˜‚ , one of the best that I have visited. I have captured it here: youtube.com/shorts/0SAyFx90GuU

This video was taken from the balcony of the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel. If you have never visited, I hope that you will in the future and that you will get an ocean view room. These room provide the absolute best views. That is probably why these rooms are at an absolute premium to book๐Ÿ˜Š.

Although I have only visited this hotel once, it is absolutely number 1 on my list for visiting again! The amenities were top notch and the grounds of the hotel were immaculate. The only down side to the hotel was that it was not all inclusive. Many of the hotels in Mexico are all inclusive. I think that this hotel is one of the best non-all inclusive hotels in Los Cabos.

Hope that you enjoy the view and that you will make your plans to visit Los Cabos soon and stay at this gorgeous hotel. You will be glad that you did!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Come Through Today๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ”ฅ

How I love staying at beautiful resorts while on vacation ๐Ÿ˜Ž! Absolutely nothing like it. For me, I never compromise. I am not one of those folks in which it doesn’t matter where I lay my head. If you are one of those folks, I admire your opinion- we will agree to disagree. For me, I lump where I stay, into the overall relaxation experience. Waking up to an ocean view from my window along with immaculate views of the property, is almost the best thing to heaven๐Ÿ˜‚! Here is one of the best resorts that I have had the pleasure of staying at: youtube.com/shorts/tTO2kKHiXz8

The video above was taken on the grounds of the beautiful Hilton Los Cabos Resort. I had such a beautiful time there and you can see why! This is why, ladies and gentlemen, we work, vacation and repeat ๐Ÿ”. These views are spectacular and instantly takes you back to magnificent times when you watch the video or replay the memories in your mind.

If you have never visited the Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas area, it is an amazing place to vacation. So much to do and so little time to do it. There are activities for the entire family. For the first time in my life, I rode a camel ๐Ÿช in Los Cabos๐Ÿ˜ณ! Of all the places, but it turns out that in addition to the beaches of Cabo, there is a desert ๐ŸŒต area called Wild Canyon. This area is amazing and a must see when you visit the area.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will add this part of Mexico to your future vacation plans๐Ÿ˜€!

All Aboard – Sail Away Party ๐Ÿšข ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

If you have ever wondered about the type of entertainment that cruise ships have on board, look no further than this video:youtube.com/shorts/f4u6XOdNrgg

I remember this experience as if it were just yesterday ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. So much fun and so much eager anticipation of sailing to the Western Caribbean to visit Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel. I could hardly contain my excitement, just like kid, excitedly waiting for Christmas ๐ŸŽ….

The video above is just a snippet of entertainment that we had on that day. Once you take a cruise, there is a myriad of things to do. Casinos are there, Broadway style performances also keep you entertained. Comedy shows are onboard along with miniature golf, basketball, swimming etc.

If you are wondering whether daycare and kid care facilities are there, the answer is yes ๐Ÿ™Œ. There are also adult only pools etc. if you prefer the all adult experiences. Food is there in absolute abundance: buffets, fine dining, fast food etc. it is almost like a airplane, hotel and restaurants all combined into one experience!

I will readily admit that I have not been cruising since the pandemic ๐Ÿ˜ท so I caution everyone to take all safety precautions to ensure that you get the most out of your experience. The video above is from pre-pandemic times so the experience would have changed since then. I am sure that the cruise lines will do all that is within their power to ensure a safe experience.

I look forward to sailing in the future and I encourage you all to cruise, especially if this is the first time or if you have cruised before. The experience is an excellent one and the memories will last a lifetime! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
