Cancun Trip - My Family Travels

      Currently, Mexico is infamous for its various drug cartels and rebel intrusions, rather than its exotic and sensational landscape. But fortunately, my parents where willing to take the chance to disregard all the cautionary advice from the news media and family members and set our summer vacation destination for Cancun, Mexico.

   “Wow!” Those were the first words that rolled off my tongue as I marveled at the incredible tropical backdrop of Cancun. The clear light blue sky blended neatly with the angelic presence of the clouds. But the humid heat yielded by the red, fiery sun displayed a major contrast to the serene nature of the sky, it was almost unbearable. Fortunately, the heat did not take away from the overall beauty of the setting.

   Along the way to the hotel, I could not help but to gape once again at the natural beauty of the Cancun landscape. A series of exotic trees and plants were lined neatly along the sides of the main road, bustling with astonishing hues. Also, the sidewalks were occupied with several anxious tourists, walking slowly to their ambivalent destinations.    

   As we progressed further away from the bustling downtown atmosphere, we were presented with a vast of array of prestigious and unique hotels; all were in close proximity to one another along the coastline. Finally we arrived to the gates of our destination, Cancun Palace. Moments later, the gates were drawn back and the grand hotel was unveiled. The sight was truly astounding!  The “palace” towered several stories high, the courtyard consisted of precious stones and exotic flowery, and was topped off by the welcoming faces and the warm hospitality from the hotel staff.

    Once we were settled into our amazing suite, my family decided to gather on the balcony. “Now this is high class!” my brother exclaimed. We all smiled and nodded in agreement as we stood with our arms crossed on the crossbar, overlooking the fabulous view of the resort. The pool area of was composed of several restaurants and bars, which were stock full of impatient customers. The pool itself was also full of hotel residents who were seeking to stay cool from the sweltering heat. Beyond the pool area, the soft crashing of the waves of the beautiful turquoise sea could be heard. The collage of these amazing features overwhelmed my thoughts; I could not believe what I was witnessing!

   Over the course of the visit, we spent the majority of our time in the relaxing by the poolside. My brother and I swam around in the pool, only stopping to gape at the abundance of scantly clad women that milled around the outskirts of the pool. Although the relaxing aspect was enjoyable, it soon grew monotonous; I wanted to explore. We were informed of various tours that existed within the area, one tour included visiting ancient Aztec structures. I would have liked to go on the tours, but due to majority vote, the family decided to hang out at the resort instead.

   Unfortunately, our remarkable vacation came to a close, along with my constant gaping. During the visit, we spent some quality time as a family at the local water park; we also indulged spectacular entrees at the resort restaurants. Of course, I wanted to go on the Aztec tour to see the ancient ruins, but I realized relaxing wasn’t too bad. The overall experience was truly amazing and the astounding landscape of Cancun will remain instilled in my mind for several years to come.
