Our Puerto Vallarta anniversary trip recap

If you follow me on instagram 
or facebook
you will know that my husband and I spent the last week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
celebrating our {belated} 15th wedding anniversary.

Our wedding anniversary is in June
{June 6, 1998}
but since the weather in our area is nice in June, we hate to leave.
Spending time in Mexico in November is much nicer!
We leave the rain and clouds behind and enjoy sunny 80 degree weather.
We called Secrets Resort and Spa home for a week and enjoyed every minute of our trip!
Our room was beautiful!
My favorite part of my day was coming back to the room to soak in the tub on the patio and enjoy the sunset and watching the city lights twinkle.

This is the view from our room!
We were totally spoiled!
It was amazing to sleep with the patio doors open and listen to the waves crashing.

 We enjoyed the resorts entertainment each evening.
There was {good} live music every night, cultural shows, magicians 
and karaoke to a live band in the on site disco club.

The lobby in the resort was one of my favorites.
The views were amazing!

 There are 8 gourmet restaurants on site
plus a full service coffee shop
{my favorite stop for an iced mocha}

We met the loveliest couple that was on their honeymoon during our Teppanyaki dinner.

 We don't go out much when we are home, 
but when we are on vacation,
one of our favorite things is to dress up and enjoy a fancy dinner.
We tried to document every night with a picture before we left the room.
{we got really good at the self timer}

I love turtles so I was so excited to hear that on one of our nights at the resort over 150 turtle eggs hatched and were being released at sunset.

A few years ago our family had the opportunity to release turtles into the ocean in Ixtapa, Mexico.
I must say, the experience doesn't get old!

Look at how cute that little guy is!

Here they are making their way out to the sea.

This was my fifth time in Puerto Vallarta and I have been to Mexico at least a dozen times but this is the first time we have ever experienced cloudy or rainy weather.

It did make for some amazing sunsets though.

It was a fantastic anniversary trip!
I read 5 books, spent hours doing nothing and didn't have a single thing planned during our time away.
I couldn't have asked for a better partner to join me on our trip either.
We had the best time with each other and making memories that will last a lifetime.
Until next time Mexico!
