Time in Tulum

After a week getting accustomed to the hot, humid weather of the Mexican Riviera in Playa del Carmen, I headed south to Tulum.

Technically, first I picked up a rental car and went north to Cancun to pick up the lovely Natalie MacNeil so we could do some last minute shopping for the retreat.

For example, we wanted gorgeously simple flowers for the tables and room so we picked up 7 bunches at the Cancun Costco and arranged them on our own:

This total mess turned into the cutest little arrangements:

We also had some banners designed, printed and I hauled them down to Mexico. My favorite on was much larger than we anticipated and Natalie thought it was hilarious:

We also picked out and brought a journal for each attendee – these were especially perfect as we were at Dreams Resort:

It took us a full day to get the room set up but were in love with the end result:

Those little white patches on the journals? Our Conquer tattoos! Here’s mine:

Although we spent a ton of time inside working on the room set up, Dreams Tulum is a resort where you want to explore!

You’ll find lots of animals (this one is my favorite):

from the lobby you’ll find a great view out to the ocean:

and there’s a great little chapel where we held morning meditations:

Dreams Tulum is an all-inclusive luxury resort so the food is amazing. You can get fresh fruit delivered at room service:

There’s a fantastic Italian restaurant:

and the very friendly staff at the sushi restaurant generously pass around after-dinner shots

That’s Michelle and Heather but let me introduce you to some of our amazing ladies!

And I had to add this one after a long, full day of coaching: IMG_9421

It had just stopped pouring down rain when I stopped outside into the hot, humid air.

Most of my time in Tulum was at the resort, working, with the exception of a trip to return the rental car (and tacos) and once into town to do laundry.

Of course, while driving around Tulum we had to stop and get some pictures of the best road sign. It read “stay present” and here’s Natalie in action:

After the retreat wrapped up I had an extra day with Natalie to plan our May 2016 Retreat and talk over the upcoming business launch before I made my way to Cancun.
