This week on…Moti Goes to The Beach.
Just kidding, except I actually did go to the beach, but this time It was the coast of Mexico! I was invited to call The Ritz-Carlton my home for a weekend in Cancun and here is how that went down.
Mexico is known to have the best service. The staff over at The Ritz-Carlton are always thinking ahead and driving defensively. While i was there I personally never felt like I needed something or I was missing anything since I already had or the staff member was right behind me with whatever it was I needed. It’s a great feeling! Especially when you’re on vacation.
5 Things to Do in Cancun:
Have dinner @ The Chef’s Table
One of the best meals I’ve had in a really long time. Chef Mara invited us into her kitchen, which was a super intimate and personal setting, where we had the chance to experience Mara doing her magic behind the counter and then tasting it. The menu for the night was Mexican, my absolute favorite, with a local touch. Mara’s presentation was exquisite, and every dish looked like a piece of art. The 6-course +17185527479meal included various wines from Mexico, ceviche, tacos and of course Mexican doughnuts drizzled in chocolate. This was one of my favorite experiences in 2017, I kid you not.

Cirque du Soleil JOYà
I’ve been to Vegas many times, however, this is my first Cirque du Soleil show I’ve ever experienced. Prepare yourselves for 90 minute show packed with entertainment! The show takes place about 45 minutes outside of Cancun and offers a list of options to enjoy the show including a delicious dinner prior to the show.

Visit Isla Mujeres
Cancun is very much an beach town, but there are so many cool towns outside of it like Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Isla Mujeres. It’s a colorful town and a great place to hit the beach, but also there’s a big market filled with small shops and places to eat and drink.
Get a Massage @ The Ritz-Carlton Spa
The BEST massage hands down. I’ve had a dozen massages my entire life, but this one hit the ball park for me. It was a hot-stone massage by Talia (ask for her!), and it was the most soothing and relaxing experience I’ve had in a while. For more information and to book your massage, visit their site HERE.
Rent a Cabana By The Beach
If you’re looking to relax by the beach, there’s no other way to do than in a cabana by the beach. Along with beach chairs each cabana has a hammock that is perfect to lay in. Additionally, while I was on the beach enjoying a cocktail, one of the staff members was coming around giving out head massages and then placing a cold, ice cold, towel and cucumbers over your eyes. I now can tell you what heaven feels like.
