Since Mar 2005

50-64 year old female

I have been to Italy, Florida & Connecticut in the first 1/4 century of my life. Raising my children was my first priority in the next 15 years travelling sporadically with my husband on his business trips and the occasional trip to Disney. We did take a cruise to Mexico for our 10 year anniversary. We had been to Cancun on one of those business trips and fell in love with it, so we finally brought our kids there in 2002 (the kids were aged 15, 17 and 21) for a 5 night stay at the Beach Palace. None of us wanted to leave. The following year and each year thereafter, we went to the Cancun Palace (except for 2006 when Cancun was under repair - we went to the Riu Palace Mexico in Playa del Carmen; we liked PDC, but not the hotel - we were too used to Palace Resorts service!). We booked through members of Palace Resorts so we could get the extra amenities that we noticed people with those silver bracelets getting on our first trip. We also won a trip to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl in 2006.
