My eldest sister and I span an age gap of 16 years. Believe it or not, she was a grandma before I even gave birth to Miss Molasses. She has four children (and now one grandbaby), all four married, and all of them went to Mexico on their honeymoon. I loved to snicker about how, of all the places they could travel in the world, they all went to Mexico! Why are they all so obsessed with Mexico? And then, we traveled to the Mexican Riviera in January of 2017 and everything clicked. We headed back again a few months ago, and still want to go again and again.

Truth be told Gabriel and I also traveled to Mexico during our honeymoon 16 years ago. Go ahead, cue the ironic laughing. However, our experience was completely obliterated by the fact that we visited during excursion days off our horrible Carnival cruise. It wasn’t until we came back with our children and toured the ruins of Tulum that we fell in love with this amazing country.

Mexico is lush with every manner of sensuous living. Vegetation and wildlife transports you back to your most natural and carnal state, compelling your desire to be united with Mother Earth. She holds in her palm jungles that disguise a story only told through the folds in the earth and leaves that give way to treasure. Her history touches the deep recesses of your heart and yield to a story anxious to teach you about your ancestors. Mexican culture captivates the essence of what it means to enjoy life, living and humanity. What isn’t there to be obsessed about the Mexican Riviera?
