Celebrate a Special Occasion with a Trip.

Celebrating a birthday is the perfect reason to travel and we did just that. We celebrated my husband’s birthday in destination and we weren’t alone. Some friends joined us, and we had an amazing time! Destination, Secrets Playa Mujeres. Whether you’re hitting the exciting 21 or celebrating the big 5-0, the variety of options for a birthday celebration trip are endless. It all comes down to what the “Birthday” person wants to do. In our case, Mike likes golf, beaches, relaxing, good food and sightseeing. Secrets Playa Mujeres had exactly what we needed.

Birthday Celebration Trip

Celebrating a Birthday

Going away from home for a birthday celebration trip, you may ask yourself, how do I make it special. Well, I am here to tell you, the coordinators at the resorts are there to help you with all the details! The staff at Secrets Playa Mujeres made this an absolutely amazing trip and I thank them! From the moment we arrived, the personal touches they did screamed Happy Birthday.

We planned the birthday celebration in the Wine Cellar. The Portofino restaurant has a private area called the Wine Cellar! I gave the chef free range for the menu, which was absolutely amazing, and the sommelier paired the wines perfectly with the dinner! All the dinners we experienced at this resort were fantastic. Guests at Secrets Playa Mujeres may also enjoy the dining at Dreams Playa Mujeres next door.

Celebration Trip Activities

Celebration trips can be planned and customized to reflect what the person, couple or family wants to focus on. I arranged the birthday celebration with the help of Aleksandra Flores the Chief Concierge at the resort. She helped me with a LOT of planning. We spoke/emailed multiple times to set up special events.


No birthday celebration trip would be complete without a day, or two, at the spa. Andrea Scherrer, the Spa Supervisor, helped us set up what we needed prior to arrival. This spa is fantastic! So relaxing! Don’t leave this resort without experiencing it. Schedule something early in your trip. If you are like us, you will schedule a second day there.


Thanks to the help of the Amstar excursion desk, we all enjoyed a day trip to Isla Mujeres. We had a great time wandering around this adorable little island. The boat ride/snorkel on the way over was pretty great too.


Golf was a focus on this birthday celebration trip. We had tee times set up for the week, thanks to Aleksandra. According to Mike & Chad, this course was awesome. They even enjoyed their encounters with the local critters, although, they might have lost a couple balls to one of them. No need to poke the bear, or the croc, right?

Traveling will make that special celebration unique and unforgettable. From birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, retirement, family reunions or friend-cations, travel can make it special. Here are a few ideas that Travel & Leisure has.
