In July we hit Playa Del Carmen for a much needed relaxing getaway! I was absolutely blown away by Mexico’s lush jungles and beautiful beaches. As most of you know, we stayed at the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya Resort and it was a fantastic five days with plenty of sunshine, relaxation, and food.

Check out my official blog post first if you haven’t yet: A Mexican Summer at Blue Diamond. There you’ll find our trip recap and lots of photos of our gorgeous stay.

For a more visual journey, ย enjoyย this video I compiled (finally) of the resort’sย beautiful surroundings and our adventures in Playa Del Carmen!

  1. Oh my gosh, could it have been more gorgeous and picturesque? I love the vlog Emily…I think it’s always so fun to see glimpses into bloggers lives in the form of vlogs. It always makes me feel like I know and understand someone a bit better. How cute is that critter at the 3 minute mark?!

    1. It’s a coati mundi I believe! They are indeed cute and friendly. Though their teeth are a little vicious looking haha.
