As travel resumes, one of the destinations many vacationers are familiar with and comfortable traveling to because of the close proximity to the U.S. is Mexico. Popular resorts are often located on sprawling beachfront properties with expansive pools and wide beaches offering lots of personal space and relaxation. One of my favorite resort companies is Secrets Resorts. I like these resort properties for their consistency in service, style, spacious settings, and choice of smaller restaurants to choose from dining each evening.

Five Secrets Resorts in Playa Mujeres and Riviera Maya

I really like the five Secrets Resorts in Playa Mujeres and the Riviera Maya. They are all easy to get to from the Cancun International Airport. Each of these resorts offers more than a dozen restaurants and lounges in uncrowded settings overlooking the pool or the ocean in many cases. For me, dining outdoors is such a delight living in the Midwest where the weather is not often conducive to al fresco dining. Speaking of pools and beaches, these resorts, Secrets Capri, Secrets Maroma, Secrets Silver Sands, Secrets Akumal, and Secrets Playa Mujeres, feature sprawling pool areas with coves so that chaise lounge chairs are not on top of one another. The beaches range from powdery sand along a quiet bay to beaches with more surf and wave action.

Spas by Pevonia

Secrets Resorts is also known for its Spas by Pevonia. Walking into the spa, I am immediately transformed by the feeling of tranquility. I relax surrounded by simple luxury. Secrets Spas by Pevonia are havens for rejuvenating body and facial treatments, soothing hydrotherapy, relaxing massage treatments, and pampering salons. I am able to choose from different packages on their spa menu, but also find fun choosing among the specials offered each day. The scented aromas at Secrets Spas by Pevonia are just what I need after a few months of staying home. It is time to clear the mind.

Here are some of my favorite spa products by Pevonia:
