Warm Times at Riviera Maya

by Aly Evans

Nov 24, 2022

As the cold weather is upon us in Philadelphia, I can’t help but wish for the return of warm weather, longer days and more sunshine. While it’s only been a few weeks since we exited the 70-degree territory, I’m already looking ahead to the next few months of winter and am getting some ideas on when to plan a getaway.Mexico

At the end of this past winter, my sister and I went on a trip to Mexico to escape the chill and made our way to the warmer climate. We packed our bags full of swimsuits and sundresses and headed down to Riviera Maya, staying at the Bahia Principe Akumal Resort. This all-inclusive served as the perfect spot to enjoy sunning ourselves on beaches, trips to the spa and checking out the cenotes and Maya ruins in Coba, Mexico.Mexico

When we first arrived at the resort, we checked in and made our way to our room to drop off our luggage and decompress after our flight before heading out to check out the beaches and pools we’d be lounging at for the next week. While we spent most of our time lounging and enjoying more casual food and drink, the resort had a plethora of nice restaurants, many of which we got the chance to enjoy throughout our stay. Midway through the week we visited the spa, which was secluded in a quieter area of the resort. Towards the end of the week we took a tour that brought us to a nearby nature reserve to swim in a cenote, and to the Maya ruins in Coba. This excursion was a really fun bit of exploring added to our trip and was definitely worth the lost beach day.Mexico

We spent our final days of the trip relaxing and taking in the last bit of warmth before heading back to Philadelphia to finish out the winter. While the cold has its positive moments, reflecting on this trip gets me excited thinking about where I’ll plan my next winter getaway.Mexico

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
