We got situated in our hotel, relaxed for a little bit and enjoyed our balcony views!
Bryan and I got to the airport and had a quick lunch at Fuddruckers and stopped by a candy shop to get us something to munch on during the flight. The flight ended up being not bad at all..it was only about 2 hours. The only bad thing was that because of all the mix up with our flight changes/times we ended up being "late" to check in and we literally got the last two seats available on the plane...it was SO packed. It was great that we got the seats, BUT they were not together! :( It was very sad and weird that we didn't get to sit together on the plane, but we survived!
It was also very ironic that when we arrived in Cancun this is the first thing we saw.YEP! It was pouring rain!! We weren't very happy to see that and it's definitely not what I imagined Cancun to be like. However, thank goodness after we got our baggage and got through customs TWO hours later, it had stopped raining!! :)
Bryan and I took a shuttle to our hotel, the Riu Palace Las Americas! It was gorgeous! When we got out of the shuttle, they immediately took care of our bags and just told us to go check in. We checked in and were greeted by smiling faces and a complimentary pretty fruity drink!
That evening we went and made dinner reservations for the rest of the week and then went and ate dinner in the main buffet hall. It was pretty good and our favorite that night (and for the week) was definitely the fish! We strolled around the hotel and then went back up to our room for the night!
Definitely interesting first day of our honeymoon, but still exciting none the less! Stay tuned for Day 2!
