We managed to escape to Cancun for a week (again) with our now almost 2 & 3 year old. And let me just say it was SUPER NICE buttt traveling with two under 3 is a lot of work! We got so lucky in so many aspects- travel time, weather, resort– definitely a trip that was worth taking!
The resort was right on the beautiful blue water and had everything and more that we could possible want and need. We loved going last year because it was a fairly easy trip to take with young kids. The flight from DC was about 3 hours and the ride to the resort was about 15 minutes.
We stayed at the GR Caribe by Solaris and it was extremely peaceful for this time of year. Had several activities and spaces for young kids and there was plenty of food options. My kids happen to be super picky so I was worried about this at first; but like I said – I’d say we got extremely lucky on this trip. It was tiring but WORTH IT! My almost three year old was SOOO excited about the whole trip he spent the week saying thank you to my husband and I for EVERYTHING! (rather funny and adorable)
It was a week full of thank you’s (in toddler speech) ~ thank you airplane, thank you water, thank you beach, thank you playground, thank you muffins, thank you spider man (there was a kids show), thank you sand, thank you latte (milk)…..among other things.
We were blessed to be able to go again and I am thankful that we were able to once again take a trip as a family. It’s tough to travel with kids but its also beautiful to make memories and capturing smiling faces =)
