 I have been to Mexico several times but this time was super special because it was my 3 year old son's first time out of the country and I was also 20 weeks pregnant with my baby girl.  It was one of those "are you sure we should take the kid on this trip" situations and turned out to be the best decision we could've made.  Before this trip our memories of Mexico were of scorching hot days floating around the cool pools with coconuts full of rum in hand... and not a child to be found for miles around.  We were nervous that a family friendly resort would not be as relaxing as our adult-only experiences in the past... but it was AMAZING!  Between the hot Caribbean sun, the kiddy pool slides (no comment on whether my husband partook), the smoothie bar with tropical drinks for the kids, and the clubhouse to drop off your little ones for some alone time... there were so many ways to relax and tire out our boy before dinner, which makes for one easy vacation.  For all the parents who have asked me... YES, MUCH OF MEXICO IS SAFE FOR KIDS... especially on the Yucatan Peninsula.  Not only is it safe but they are welcomed with open arms and treated like little kings and queens.  

We went to Playa Mujeres this time and stayed at The Beloved Hotel. Hotel grounds were breathtaking!  Our room was huge and stylish, outfitted with relaxing daybeds on the patio.  We enjoyed top-notch service and an array of lovely all inclusive restaurants to choose from for dining.  We spent a lot of time just lounging on the balcony beds and ordering all-inclusive room service... pausing frequently to take it all in.  It was a much needed break from the harsh NYC winter.  Trust me... you will LOVE this boutique hotel in Playa Mujeres.
