Mexico, This One’s For You! A Countdown to Cinco de Mayo

Hola Beach Lovers!  I guess I’m still in Mexico mode after staying at Mosquito Beach in Playa del Carmen this past week. Cinco de Mayo is an important day in Mexican history, celebrating the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army, but for Americans it’s an excellente excuse to sip some tequila, indulge in some guacamole and take a break from our busy lives for a little fiesta!

I can think of 5 reasons why you should broaden your cultural awareness this week and they all start with “M”. Margarita, Mexican Food, Music, Mexico (Yes, it’s possible to have your own fiesta in Mexico with our “Top Cinco’s” sale) and did I say Margarita already?

Perhaps I’m excited because mexican food and margaritas - preferably on the rocks with salt (cadillac style) - are my favorite, but we like to spice things up at CheapCaribbean.com, so we are counting down to Cinco de Mayo with a celebration this entire week – no, one day is not enough!  Mexico is vibrant from the culture and atmosphere to the food, and here are 5 of my favorite things about Mexico, which you too can experience with our Top Cinco de Mayo deals.

Uno! Catalonia Priviledged Beach sits on Maroma Beach and was voted by the Travel Channel as the number one beach in the world. Be sure to spend the day on a lounge chair taking in the sun and sand!

Dos! Valentin is a five star, adult only all-inclusive resort just 20 minutes from Cancun's airport in Puerto Morelos. The multiple restaurants and swim up bars will have you swimming in some of the best food and drinks in the Riviera Maya.

Tres! Iberostar Cozumel is situated on a beautiful stretch of sand on the quiet island. Many will spend their Cinco de Mayo underwater taking in the snorkeling and scuba adventures only Cozumel can offer!

Quatro! The Royal Cancun is a special all-inclusive, couples-only resort. A tequila bar allows  you to sample the 100+ varieties and then walk over to the 24-hour sports bar where you can pour your own Cinco de Mayo drink of choice!

Cinco! And best of all, I will be spending Cinco de Mayo at Dreams Villamagna in Puerto Vallarta! This beautiful all-inclusive resort in Riviera Nayarit is a gem, with incredible dining to of course couple with  Don Julio blanco margaritas on this special day!

Okay, this blog has made me hungry – and thirsty – and I’m always looking to add flavor, so share your favorite salsa recipe on our Facebook page! If I like yours the best, I’ll give you a Margaritaville Maker to help cool off from that spiciness!

Now go celebrate! Olé!
