For our vacation this year we had limited time so we decided to make it easy on ourselves and to return to the Excellence Riviera Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Our trip couldn't have gotten off to a better start. While we were checking in at the airport, the airline employee made a phone call and spoke in a hushed tone and then tapped away on his computer. I got a little nervous and was hoping our reservation was still there! Well, to my great surprise, this kind gentleman upgraded us to first class for no reason at all! Who does that anymore? It definitely renewed my faith in the random act of kindness! Needless to say, the flight was great.
4.5 hours direct to Mexico, free drinks, a hot meal, electrical outlets for laptops, free in-flight wi-fi, hot towels, and more. It was just wonderful!

We arrived in Mexico. My suitcase was THE FIRST one on the track...my husband's was THE LAST! No biggie, lol! We zipped right outside to our transport to the hotel. (TIP: If you ever fly into Cancun, decide on your transportation before you arrive and then walk directly to where you should be. Do not stop to talk to anyone, don't even look at anyone for that matter. All the people in the airport will try to rope you into time share promotions and other things that aren't worth it.) We booked our trip through CheapCaribbean.com and as usual they were great. They were waiting outside of the airport entrance and brought us over to the van that took us to our airport. Our hotel was the first drop off but there were only two other couples in the van with us.

Once again, upon arriving at the Excellence, we were greeted with hot towels, champagne, and the finest service I've ever experienced at a hotel. Every employee greets you whether they are managers, landscapers, housekeeping, or whatever, they are all so friendly. Check out my Excellence Riviera Cancun hotel review from last year for a detailed review. We loved it just as much!

Cancun ! I think there is some great diving/snorkelling to be done there ! (although maybe not anymore if the whole bay of Mexico is filled with oil :(
