Last month, we celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary with a couple of days at Nizuc Resort and Spa in Cancun. It’s an amazingly gorgeous property. We spent a couple days relaxing by the pool, reading, and napping. Very peaceful and relaxing.

The property is gorgeous, and our suite was huge! They have 6 or 7 restaurants, and we ate at 3 of them – all excellent.

And the staff was fantastic! There when you needed them, very professional, and they all seemed to know us by name.

Obviously, the Riviera Maya area where we live is full of resorts. Prices are cheaper during the off-season (summer), and many offer discounts for local residents.

For this trip, we actually paid for our stay using Chase Ultimate Reward points – so our stay was free. But – Nizuc is NOT all-inclusive, so we did pay for our food and drinks. Even so, getting free room nights made it so worth it! Plus, it’s only about a 20 minute drive from our house. Hooray for credit card hacking!

Here’s a few pics from our stay.
