Sand. Sea. Sky. Wind. Waves. This was my early morning view from a beach bed at Maroma Resort & Spa on the Riviera Maya during my most relaxing four days this year on an extended weekend getaway with my husband. Add in a good book, a walk, a yummy lunch (ceviche and tacos from Freddy’s bar), a nap, and repeat. Beach bliss. —Jennifer Barr, executive editor/content strategist
