I am so grateful to have had the privilege to stay at Sun Palace in Cancun, a resort that’s part of Palace Resorts. We spent five wonderful nights there for free, as part of the membership we gifted ourselves with during our first day in Cancun. (“Gifted” translates to “I bought into another timeshare-like deal.” However, this one is the best of all of the ones I’ve bought into!) World-class spa treatments, gourmet meals, unlimited delicious drinks, infinity pools, in-suite jacuzzi (my favorite), daily maid service, 24-hour room service, free wireless connections, free calls to US and Canada, half-price golf, tours to ancient Mayan temples… I could get use to being treated like royalty! What a perfect getaway vacation!

Costa Maya Reef Resort, where tranquility meets adventure

I visited Costa Maya Reef Resort in Belize in November 2007, booking the resort through DAELive (Dial-an-Exchange) and then buying a membership while there. What a lucky find that was!

My favorite was the tour to Shark Ray Alley where I got to hold a shark and scratch its belly, as well as swim with giant rays. (Even caught a ride on the wing of one!) And I also enjoyed searching for manatees and seeing a pregnant sea horse. (Still don’t understand that one! See the related pictures in my photo gallery below.)
