That’s right….we celebrated Christmas in Mexico! If you’ve never had a destination holiday I highly suggest you try one! While having the “traditional”, at home, Christmas is by far my favorite, there were some perks to our destination holiday. The only concern we had was what time should we put on our bathing suits. There was no prepping for dinner, cleaning up after dinner, cleaning house for family, etc.

We stayed at the Barceló Maya Palace! We were able to enjoy the “all inclusive premium package”. This basically granted us access to everything: free drinks at any bar, access to all 5 resorts on the grounds, full buffets, any restaurant for dinners each night, free Wi-Fi, and percentages off some water activities. This package was well worth it and something I would purchase for any resort travel, especially this one. Obviously, different resorts have different packages and package pricing…make sure to do plenty of research before pulling the trigger on any one resort and package!

It’s a family tradition to open our matching PJ’s Christmas Eve. This year was no different – we opened them Christmas Eve, wore them on the beach while we opened gifts and then off to the breakfast buffet Christmas Morning we went…one big, matching, family!  Oh, how everyone LOVED the pajamas!! Lazy One, is the brand…
