Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

The gorgeous lagoon at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
Living in Chicago during the winter can be tough, especially this year with the doom of the polar vortex. So I took a quick week-long trip to Riviera Maya for a four-day concert from one of my favorite bands in the world, My Morning Jacket. My travel companion wound up getting sick and unable to join me. I met new, wonderful friends who I spent my week with, enjoying delicious dinners, plenty of beachy cocktails, the gorgeous beach and lagoon and glorious pools with swim-up bars and of course amazing concerts from My Morning Jacket and other bands. It was a week in Heaven (and coincidentally, the one wing of the hotel I stayed in was called Heaven). The hotel is all-inclusive and offers credits to get massages and more in the spa, which was a great addition to an already stellar week. It was the perfect escape from the below-zero polar vortex. I can't wait to go back next January.
