How to Spend a Week in Cancun

Back in November, I treated myself to the good life for a week in Mexico!

The first resort I stayed at was Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort. This was an all-inclusive resort, meaning all your meals, cocktails and many amenities are included in the cost of your room – even 24-hour room service!

Sandos Cancun was definitely the kind of place you go to chill ALL the way out for a week-long vacation. In fact, one of my favorite afternoons was spent on the beach just eating, drinking tamarind margaritas and falling asleep to the waves.

Sandos Cancun had great food, great service and a great beach! Unlike many island resorts, there was a big emphasis on quality food at the daily buffets. Of course, my favorite menu during the week was the Mexican Fiesta party with authentic, delicious dishes like posole, beef tingas and tacos al pastor.

I used the spa credits I received through booking with Expedia and gave myself the gift of an entire morning at the spa for a deep tissue massage and hydrotherapy. What I loved about the spa at Sandos was the way the therapists carefully managed my experience, from the relaxing massage to icy towels in the sauna to the cold plunge pool and warm shower at the end.

From Sandos, I booked a day-long tour to Chichen Itza, one of the most famous Mayan ruins in the Mexican state of Yucatan. I was hoping to be able to climb to the top of the pyramid, but unfortunately they don’t let people do that anymore!


I have to say, I loved being spoiled by the all-inclusive resort life at Sandos Cancun. I would gladly go back again for that beautiful beach, amazing food, lovely spa and impeccable service any day. They took such good care of me and I felt like a queen!

If you’re headed to Cancun, I highly recommend staying at Sandos!
