Anywhere in Cancun and along the Yucatan Peninsula. We've been going 1 to 4 times each year for the last 16 years. So many memories. Many birthdays with Feliz Compleanos sung sometimes by the SAME Mariachi bands. Many Holidays with great pictures. Favorite waiters at restaurants that have changed locations and they still remember us! Doesn't matter if it's a budget trip or Luxury resort. We've enjoyed it all!

L2T27- How exciting! First thread! But I can't help the "oh great, another forum to add to the addiction" feeling. :)

VL- You are so Lucky. I love Cancun. I hope my family will enjoy many trips and memories in the future. And I wish your family many more as well!

Our first trip to Cancun was Aug. 2007. It was our (hubby and I) first "real" vacation alone. For our honeymoon, we took a cruise with 20some other family members. Definitely fun, but not very romantic. Anyway, I fell in love with the beach in Cancun and we are going for the 3rd time in Dec. Yay!

Definitely Bora Bora, French Polynesia & Maldives. I really loved the beaches & resorts there, based on what I've seen here in Trip Advisor. I wish I could have a beach getaway with my boyfriend to either one of those 2 destinations.

But so far, the no. 1 beach that I've been to is in Boracay, Philippines. I loved the white sands there, especially the calm nature & clear waters. =)

Tiwi Beach Kenya when staying in the Sand Island Cottages. Deserted apart from a few Beach boys and girl that wait for you to approach them and the other couples there are also usually mixed race couples

Well - I actually grew up in the province that boosts one of the Top 10 Beaches in the World - Grande Beach, located just outside of the provincial capitol, Winnipeg, Manitoba. However, we absolutely love Punta Cana-white sand and amazing ocean. We are going to Nuevo Vallarta this Feb. for the 1st time - so I will do a comparison after the fact. Hi BobNH, regards, Leigh

Punta Cana ... hands down!

Been to Mexico, Puerto Plata & Nassau but Punta Cana beats them all IMO!

The people and the beaches are what makes it special to me :o)
