Blogging From Paradise: CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort

2010/08/11by Donna Hull

CasaMagna-Marriott-Cancun-ResortHave you been on a baby boomer adventure to Cancun, Mexico? Well, I haven’t but I’ll be fixing that travel omission next weekend (Aug. 21-24, 2010). Thanks to Marriott Resorts, I’m participating in the “Nine Bloggers in Paradise” virtual press trip as I report from CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort on Mexico’s beautiful Caribbean Coast.

What baby boomer adventures will I find? Will Casa Magna Marriott make a romantic boomer get-away? Is it safe to travel to Cancun, Mexico as a woman solo traveler? I’ll be answering these questions and more during the visit. And, with a comprehensive fitness center plus a soothing spa, I just might turn this visit into a healthy boomer retreat.

You don’t have to wait to read my Cancun advice in a blog post, although I’ll be publishing several of those. Since CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort offers wireless high-speed internet in all accommodations, I’ll be tweeting about my Mexican boomer adventures on twitter, @DonnaLHull, look for #BlogParadise. I’ll also be posting photos and messages at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook.

Who are the other members of the “Nine Bloggers in Paradise” team? You’ll want to keep up with all of the reports from the eight Marriott Resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean (CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort makes nine). Who knows? One of our adventures might whet your baby boomer travel appetite for some fun in the sun.

Have you been to Cancun? It’s your turn to give me travel advice by posting a comment. Nancy D. Brown from What A Trip sent me these Cancun tips for my four days in paradise. What else should I know?

This sounds like reality TV. What fun! Can’t wait to hear more. I have not yet been to Cancun.

I’m confused by the virtual label – I hope that means that you still get to go in person as it looks lovely – does it mean that all the bloggers will be at different resorts?

I agree, Heather, that the virtual label is confusing but that’s what
Marriott is calling it. I’m going to be in person in Cancun. Yes, each
blogger will be reporting from a different resort – nine locations in
all.

Sounds like it’s going to be a great trip! I haven’t had the pleasure of staying in this particular resort, but I’ve been to the Secrets Silversands in Cancun and I just love the area. There is so much to see and do!
