I took a week off and got away with a girlfriend to an *amazing* resort in Mexico's pristine Maya Riviera region, just near the famous Playa del Carmen. We toured a butterfly house, sat on the beach for hours to read, went snorkeling in a protected national park, and kayaked out to sea. It was possibly the best vacation I’ve ever had.
