i had the best long weekend soaking up the sun, playing in the water and eating delicious ceviche in punta de mita, mexico. this was my first time seeing this part of mexico and i am certain it won’t be my last.
it was quiet, but lively and we lucked out with perfect weather during our stay! even though the weather forecast said 100% rain every day we were there! big thank you to you, mother nature!

we started our trip touring the property which is an instagrammers dream! every which way you turn is insta-worthy and photo perfect. next, we had a little spa time. this is where the w hotel punta de mita took my breath away. not only was the massage stellar, but the spa pools are worth the visit alone! it felt like having my own personal paradise right in the middle of a lush and beautiful jungle. after enjoying the spa pools for a little [or long while] the rain started to trickle and could not have been more perfect with the timing. the sound was so relaxing and comforting! definitely one of my top most favorite spa experiences!
always heard how beautiful the panama city beaches are, but i’ll be honest… i
had no idea just how beautiful the panama city beaches are.
david and i spent a few days soaking up the sun and breathing in the fresh ocean breeze in this beautiful little town. aside from the stunning views and gorgeous water, panama city
just so happens to also be a foodie’s paradise. it was such an unexpected but very pleasant surprise. we beach hopped
and restaurant hopped to our hearts’ content and still feel like we only
scratched the surface!

jet ski adventure
i highly recommend this one! we had so much fun cruising around on our jet skis and zipping through the ocean waves. we stopped at shell island where we got to hang out for a bit, but not before admiring numerous dolphins playing in the water just inches away.
bonus points if you take a cooking class. not only will you get to try the delicious traditional balinese foods, but you will learn how to create them in your own kitchen! be sure to try sate and nasi campur!
