Honeymoon Part II

Hola! Here are some honeymoon photos taken from our trip to Huatulco, Mexico with the real camera!



Down by the beach at our hotel. Nothing like a vacation for two to make you seriously consider getting a selfie stick…


 

I asked Joe to take a photo of me while backlit by the sun so I would look like an angelic beach angel. Totally worked.

On our last day of the trip, I was recovering from tummy troubles, but still managed to win the “surfing” competition down at the pool. (I probably only won because I was the only contestant who hadn’t been drinking, haha.)

This is the right half of the resort.

 

The sky bar was in the center of the hotel. The view was so cool during sunrise, sunset, and really all times in between. We took to drinking sueros which is a non-alcoholic drink that is supposed to help you rehydrate after being in the sun all day. Important for Minnesotans who haven’t seen sunlight in six months.

The hallway to our hotel room.


And our hotel room. Housekeeping kind of went crazy with the rose petals. This isn’t even one of the grandiose displays.

 

I didn’t take a lot of food photos this trip. I was too busy shoving it in my face. (MAYBE that’s where the tummy troubles came from.)

Here are photos from our three levels of Huatulco excursion.

^^^This was the first “level” of Huatulco. Beautiful views, even for the dry season.^^^

Below is the town of Santa Maria. Unlike Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Huatulco is much smaller and quieter. Tourism is not nearly as developed, but it’s a peaceful area with a low crime rate. The businesses here produce goods mainly for the people of the town, not tourists. We were told that much effort being made to make Huatulco a sustainable tourist area so that the environment is protected and so are the people who inhabit the area.

We watched these tortillas get made and then we got to eat them. SO good.

 
We visited an 84 year old bakery that had been passed down from generation to generation and even ate bread baked in the stone oven.

 

 
Our van broke down on the way up the mountain to see the third level of Huatulco (the level that would yield us coffee), we still made it up there via taxi and brought home a few kilos of  coffee. So the day may have gone off-course, but we still did what we came to do.

Lastly, as you may have noticed, we didn’t have a lot of photos of just the two of us. On our last day we did a small photo session with the hotel photographer. She got a lot of great shots, and below are the ones we purchased. Even with my poofy hair, I’m so happy we have these to remember our trip by.
 

 
 

 
I want to thank my dear husband once more for taking us on such a sweet and memorable trip! And a HUGE thank you to my in-laws who watched our girls for a week. It means more to me than you know. It came at a great time as we have been together for 10 years and married for almost five.
 
With two little ones, it can be so hard to find time to ourselves, just to even have a conversation. That being said, this trip gave us that uninterrupted time punctuated by drinks, tacos, gorgeous views, and nice hot weather. Although the whole week-wasn’t smooth sailing, but hey, that’s life. And we are nothing, if not adaptable. I will always cherish this trip and it’ll have a special place in my heart.
 
Adios until next time, Huatulco!
