Ahhh, this cruise was so relaxing! A few months back, I cruised with Princess Cruises along the Mexican Riviera. I am grateful to get to work with brands like this and get to share this experience with you!

My favorite excursion of the whole cruise was a private beach getaway to Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta!

After getting off of the ship, we took a small boat over to the Las Caletas. The view after getting off of the boat.

Next up, was a massage. On the boat, they told us the offerings on the private beach. There was snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, tequila tastings, you could get a massage or you just relax (I’m totally not listing all of the activities, there were so many).

I opted to schedule a massage that was pretty affordable. The walkway up to the where the rooms where the masseuses work was a little steep but so pretty!

I enjoyed the massage and then explored the private beach afterwards.

Glory’s sister went paddle boarding. I can’t get over how pretty the water was.

And the water again.

Someone shared a meme or an article about why the ocean and the beach is so good for you. I think this is similar to what I just read recently. It’s so true, it relaxes you!

This is actually a photo from when I was walking up to the private beach from the boat dock. See the hammocks?

I stole some time in one of these. The waves crashing, it’s such a relaxing sound!
