Miami, The Fontainebleau

Having grown up in South Florida, the name Fontainebleau is synonymous with class and Miami. This resort was and still is a premier destination, from the moment you arrive your surrounded by classic Miami style! We didn’t get the to the hotel until after 11pm, so when we walked into the lobby, the Bleu Bar was alive with people and awesome music.

Playa Del Carmen

A totally opposite town than it’s larger sister city, Cancun, Playa del Carmen is much more quaint! You won’t find the hustle and bustle of city buses and noisy traffic here, these cute cobblestone roads are the perfect destination to get a little of everything. We only had 2 days in town, the first which was spent mostly at a beach front bar/restaurant, Mamacita’s. Playa was hosting an annual techno/house music conference so the beaches were packed …

If he was good, I could have …
