We finally booked our honeymoon today with our travel agent! We are going to jet off at dawn from Boston on the Monday morning after the wedding and spend 7 nights in Mexico. We are going to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo located on the beach of Playa de Paraíso about a half hour from the Cancun airport. We are familiar with the Iberostar properties since we stayed in the Iberostar Quetzal in Playa del Carmen in Mexico several years ago. And we stayed in an Iberostar in Punta Cana two winters ago. And of course, we enjoyed the Playa del Carmen trip we took previously, especially the Mayan culture and our day trips seeing the ruins in Tulum and snorkeling. I think our honeymoon will be more about staying put at the resort and enjoying their unique swimming pools, our suite, and the restaurants at the resort. The Paraiso Linda has five pools that include a wave pool, a lazy river pool designed to encourage floating around on an innertube, and a lake style pool. They have a swim-up bar too so we can enjoy a frozen drink without even getting out of the water. Because we have been to this area of Mexico before, we won't have to try and read any travel books between now and the wedding. And we know we will love the area.
