For the second part of our trip to México…we were joined by my parents and we headed to Mahekal Beach Resort!! It was also my dad’s birthday…so this trip as extra-special!



First impression: the resort was SO, SO, SO beautiful! It has a bohemian, carefree vibe that mixes Mexican traditions with modern and luxe details. All the rooms are palapa-style…and ours was just a few steps from the ocean (dreamy!)!  Each room has an individual terrace with personal hammocks <3 I also love that they don’t have TVs on the rooms, so you can really “unplug” and enjoy a good book  by the ocean.


Hoy les quiero contar de la segunda parte de nuestro viaje a México.

Para esta parte nos acompañaron mis papás y nos fuimos al Resort Mahekal. Como fue el cumpleaños de mi papá, este viaje fue extra especial.

Mi primera impresión: ¡el resort es ESPECTACULAR! Tiene un aire bohemio y relajado pero con mucha cultura mexicana. Todas las habitaciones son estilo palapa- con vista al mar o de jardín...pero todas hermosas. Todas las habitaciones también tienen una terraza con hamacas. Y me encantó que no tenían TVs, para uno poder desconectarse completamente.

We were welcomed with a plate of cheese and wine…which we ate while catching up with my parents! Then we changed clothes and got ready for a Cocktail Mixology Lesson at Las Olas Restaurant.

We tried different cocktails and learned how to do them (I wish I would have brought a notebook to write it all down!) My favorite was one with passionfruit and mint leaves….which was a perfect match for my first mani “This Cost Me a Mint” by OPI SoftShades. The SoftShades collection is OPI’s newest collection..with the prettiest pastels- which were the perfect finishing touch to all my tropical vacation outfits.
Nos dieron la bienvenida con vino y quesos...que comimos mientras nos poníamos al día y nos cambiábamos para ir a la clase de cocteles en el Restaurante Las Olas.

Hicimos varios cocteles con mezcal y tequila (ojalá me hubiese llevado un cuadernito para anotarlo todo porque soy tan despistada!) Mi favorito llevaba parchita y hojitas de menta...que combinaba perfecto con el primer color de mani que lleve puesto llamado "This Cost me A Mint" de la nueva colección de OPI llamada SoftShades. Esta colección es toda de colores pasteles...perfecta para unas vacaciones tropicales.

After that, we stayed at “Las Olas” Restaurant for a late lunch…we tried some high end “land and sea” dishes! We started with a fish&shrimp ceviche that was out of this world! We had most meals at this restaurant because it was right by our room, the infiniti pool, and the ocean…perfect spot!

Después de la clase nos quedamos en "Las Olas" para un almuerzo tardío.  Probamos sus mejores platos de mar y tierra...uno de ellos era un ceviche de pescado y mariscos (no tienen idea lo rico que estaba). Este restaurante fue nuestro favorito por lo cerca que quedaba de nuestra habitación, de la piscina, y del mar! <3

Even though the Mahekal feels like a private little piece of paradise,  the famous “5ta Avenida” is right across the corner.  I changed my mani to “One Chic Chick”…a yellow pastel from Soft Shades and I put  flow dress and espadrilles and I was ready for whatever 5th Avenue had ready for me.   There are so many restaurants, little shops (and big shops, there is a mall in the middle of this long avenue), small nightclubs. I’m always in awe with Mexican artistry…I love their culture and I love how proud they are of it. I fell in love with a hipster Friday art…but instead I got a calavera with a flower design! Then, with all the salsa beats around us, I made Gabriel dance with me a little…this rarely happens so I had to take advantage.

Aunque no era necesario salir del Mahekal porque lo tiene todo, la famosa "5ta Avenida" esta a la vuelta de la esquila. Así que con mi color "One Chic Chic", un amarillo clarito, me puse mis alpargatas y un vestido fresquito (porque hacía mucho pero mucho calor). Y nos fuimos caminando por toda la avenida...que por cierto es más grande de lo que parece, hay tiendas pequeñitas artesanales, restaurantes, pequeñas discotecas, y hasta un centro comercial inmenso con todas las marcas internacionales.  A mi me encanta la cultura mexicana...estuve apunto de comprar el cuadrito de Frida que ven abajo pero preferí una opción menos hipster: una calavera con flores. Después de esto bailamos un poquito y regresamos al hotel.

I’m such a caribbean girl… I love the ocean, I love the sound of the waves…my favorite color is that turquoise blue of the perfect Playa del Carmen Beaches (and don’t get me wrong, I was spoiled by some of the most gorgeous beaches in Venezuela…but Playa del Carmen and Margarita are head to head!). To match the gorgeous clouds and white sand, I put on the “It's In The Clouds” shade from OPI…and I mean it, my head was really in the clouds <3 How can you not be inspired with this view


This is just part one of our stay at the Magical Mahekal. Stay tuned for part two! <3 You can read more about the Magical Mahekal by clicking here.

Yo amo las playas del Caribe...me encanta el mar, el sonido de las olas...el azul del mar <3
Playa del Carmen es un espectáculo ( y tengo con que compararlo porque creanme que crecí con las playas más lindas del mundo en Venezuela).

Para combinar con las nubes y lo blanco de la arena, me puse el tono "It's in the Clouds" de OPI...es que así mismo me sentía con esta vista....en las nubes!


Pronto comparto la segunda parte de esta visita al Mahekal. Puede leer más de este resort haciendo click por acá.
