Where I stayed
Our plane eventually left the grip of the Canadian freezing weather and with incredible speed, headed towards the horizon and into the welcoming sky! I was thrilled and excited to know that I was now onboard the plane and finally heading to sunnier and warmer weather! The last 24 hours had been a nightmare!
Our transfer was waiting for us and with several other people, we boarded a mini bus for our 30 minute drive to our seafront hotel, the "Riu Caribe" located right here in the heart of Cancun's exclusive hotel zone. Our trip package had promised us unforgettable vacations therefore I was anxious to see if it would deliver as published.
Upon arrival, this seven story high “u” shape rectangular structure with ends built like pyramids was quite eye appealing with its modern architectural design. I was much larger in size than anticipated and had 506 guestrooms according to the handed out brochure. I just couldn’t wait to set foot inside.
After breezing through the check-in, we thanked the senor and with keys in hand, rapidly followed the bellboy. Muchas gracias senor! I just couldn’t wait to practice my Spanish!
We got off the elevators on the 5th floor where our room was located kind of in the middle of the building So far, I greatly liked what I saw but couldn’t be more thrilled when setting foot into our room!
You'll never believe why! We had an incredible view of the Caribbean Sea right in front of us. “Wow, wow, wow” were the words that instantly came into mind! I knew right away that my holiday here in Riu Caribe would be a fantastic one!
After a quick change of clothes, after all we were dressed with winter clothes and it was getting hot, we rapidly went downstairs and started exploring the grounds.
