A Week in Cancun
Protective Styling While Traveling
When traveling to countries with humid climates, protective styling is a must. My hair is the last thing that I want to worry about when my daily itinerary includes water sports, hiking, and exploring. So, I decided to use this trip as the perfect opportunity to try out Box Braids! In the past I've done my own Havanna/Marley Twists, and Faux Locs, but I've always wanted to wear my hair in Box Braids- and was up for the challenge! Most, if not all, of my life skills are credited to YouTube tutorials; learning how to braid, twist, and style my own hair is no exception to that. So after just 2 1/2 short days of braiding (Ha!), I was ready for an adventure of a lifetime!
During our stay in Cancun, we resided at the beautiful Ocean Coral & Turquesa Resort by H10 in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean. This resort included private beach access, 4 pools, open bars, and all inclusive meals at 7 different restaurant options.
As amazing as all inclusive resorts abroad can be, experiencing the culture and history of a country firsthand, is in my opinion- the best experience you could possibly get while traveling. Since this trip was an extended family vacation, I was fortunate enough to have my brother, along with my young crew of cousins as my adventure buddies to explore the Yucatan Peninsula with!
As fortunate as I was to be able to travel around Mexico this summer, having my big, close knit family to go on adventures with made it that much more special. So thank you so much to my huge beautiful family!
