    This giveaway is huge, so exciting! Thanks for hosting this, Modern Day Moms! I have never been to Cancun, in fact, I’ve never been out of the country. Since I literally just received my first passport ever last week, I would absolutely love to win this trip! It’d be a dream.

    I’d LOVE to take my family here! We don’t have any young children, but we’ve always wanted to visit Mexico, and with the death of my grandmother last year who never got to see much of the US and none of the rest of the world, this would be the PERFECT way to make sure we at least see SOME of the world before time runs out!

  • Meg

    Amazing! I’d love to win this. We have never been to Cancun. My husband is in graduate school so a family trip isn’t really affordable right now… so winning this would be wonderful for us.

  • D'Art Strickland

    My wife is the hardest working woman I know. She deserves some pampering, and what better way than a trip to beautiful Cancun.

  • Adina

  • Sounds amazing!!! Buuuuuuuut, with a family of 8 we usually don’t qualify for this type of thing. It’s usually for families of 4….I’ll read it and double check, of course, first.

  • Judy Burns

    If you only knew why I deserved this. I am so ready for a vacation from all of life’s stresses. But am truly blessed by the people that do stress me out.

  • Christina Robinson

    My husband and I so need this, it would be a perfect vacation once I graduate nursing school! We need this r&r time together! :)

  • Ilene

    This would be such an amazing first family vacation for us! I went on a family vacation to Cancun as a child almost 20 years ago and would love to share that same experience with my kids!

  • Sarah McGrew

    Wow! We would love this trip! My husband and I married the day after I graduated college, while he was in the Navy. We never got a honeymoon (or even a vacation that didn’t consist of going to our hometown for his leave!) Now we have a 1 year old daughter and another baby on the way! This would be a perfect getaway for us!

  • Sarah McGrew

    I posted that I entered as my Facebook status for an extra entry!
    Thanks so much!

    I would LOVE to win this incredibe trip! I would love to take our 2 daughters who are so deserving of a family vacation! I enjoy reading the articles and tips on Modern Day Moms and I have recommended it to many friends and family members! This would truly be a GREAT gift for our family!

    I would love to win this trip for my kids and my burnt out hubby!!

  • Megan

    OHHH EEEMMM GEEEE!!!! This would be the most amazing thing in the world!!! My husband and I have been hit pretty hard with the economy and working our butts off trying to adjust to the huge recent downsize! Going on our first family vacation with our 2 littles (5 and 2) would be such an amazing treat!!! WOW!!

  • Jaime

    I haven’t been on vacation in years! I got married 2 years ago and thought a vacation would be in the works for sure at that point but trying to juggle a baby and a honeymoon just didn’t end up happening.. So here we are 2 years and another baby later and the dream of going on a vacation seems almost nonexistent. Oh how I would LOVE to win this trip! Awesome Giveaway!

  • Jenni

    My mom died 10 months ago, and my life is still in shambles. This month would’ve been her 61st birthday. I vowed to go away someplace beautiful in her honor, because she never got to travel much… she was too busy taking care of her family. I want to see the world because she didn’t get to in her short 60 years. I’m also trying to open up a no-kill shelter for senior cats in Arizona called Purrfeclty Adoptable (, which is time consuming. Lord knows I could use a vacation, fingers crossed!!!

  • Molly

    What an amazing giveaway! My fingers are crossed…. I’m planning a Cancun trip for my 30th Birthday in October and this would be amazing!!!

  • Andrew

    I would love to see my girlfriend Jenni win this. Her mom dying has really made the last year difficult for her, I can see she’s stressed and really needs the break. We’ve been together 8 years and this would also be a wonderful treat for us to get away together some place romantic and just relax. Thanks.

  • Deidrea

    I am turning 40 this year. A trip would be so awesome for my family. We never go anywhere. We are both working parents and still barely make enough to make ends meet. A trip would really help my relationship with my husband and it would be an awesome experience for my kids. They are teenagers now and haven’t been very far from home. Thank you so much for the opportunity to even dream about a vacation!!!

  • Kristy

    We have never been outside the tri-state area. I would love to take the kids on a real vacation, especially because they’re old enough to remember it all now! We can’t afford an actual vacation with airfare, hotel, amenities so this would be a dream come true!

  • Kristy
  • Kerry Hall

    I need to exfoliate my feet on that beach!!

  • Barbara

    This sounds like a wonderful getaway for two seniors who enjoy having fun soaking up the sun, relaxing in a wonderful environment and enjoying the many charms of Mexico.

    I’ve never been to Cancun and I would LOVE this getaway because I haven’t been on vacation in years and years. I’m going to be a mommy in 7 weeks and I’d love to treat myself and hubby to a getaway where we can rekindle our relationship :) Thank you for the chance!

  • Jennifer Schiltz

    My husband and are coming up on our 4th wedding anniversary. We were an immediate family because of my beautiful daughter who, at the time, was 6. As we were finding out about our next little edition we discovered my husband had a kidney disease. That “edition” was exactly 7 months old on the day of my husband’s kidney transplant. We now have a beautiful, healthy family of 5 because we were blessed with another little boy on 11-11-11. While we have had many blessings in out life, the stress of new life, death, illness, moving, job changes and little everyday stressors have taken a toll on my husband and I both emotionally and financially. I think it would be so wonderful to be able to escape for a little bit and just enjoy our blessings! Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Jessica Webb

    I would love to win this trip. My husband and I will be celebrating our 19th anniversary this October and have NEVER been on a honeymoon. We would also like to share this trip with our two amazing children to celebrate our daughter’s high school graduation as well as our son’s academic achievements. We are both teachers so a vacation like this for all of us is not affordable. It would be such a blessing!

  • Heather Lee

    Such an amazing opportunity! I haven’t been to Cancun in 15 years. I would love to be able to take my family.

    sounds like tons of fun!

  • Wendy

    First off…I had no idea that commenting on the FB post would leave it here as well, so I hope that doesn’t void my real entry here.

    I have been to Cancun before and it is absolutely beautiful. It took my breath away. I felt like I was in paradise, but really I wasn’t.

    I went with my ex-boyfriend when I was 22 (11 years ago) who was abusive and just mean. He was a drunk, too. We had just broken up and so he offered to take me to Cancun: “Since we’re never going to get married, let’s at least take the honeymoon we’ll never have and call it a vacation.” Those were his words. I bought into it.

    I was excited to visit a new country….a tropical paradise, nonetheless! Then when we were headed there, all of these thoughts started crossing my mind: “Maybe he plans to kill me!” So, I was uneasy the whole time, not to mention I knew he’d be drinking and that was when the abuse always occurred. Nothing horrible happened, but it was not a pleasurable experience as it should have been.

    I know you must think I am crazy for actually going through with and looking back, it was stupid. But I was able to see Cancun for all of it’s beauty! I just wish that it had been with someone I loved and could have enjoyed it with. Which is why I am entering…

    My husband and I are currently repairing our relationship after dealing with some issues and I would love nothing more than for us to be able to take our little family away for a little while to just totally escape and relax. I would love to create a new memory of Cancun with people I love, create new experiences and actually be able to fully enjoy it.

  • Stacey

    Would be so nice, been a pretty rough year and some time away would be so great for my kids!

  • Melissa Ford

    Soooo wanting to go here!!!! My kids are learning to swim and love the beach!

  • Natalie Rios

    This would be a great surprise for my family! After years of being a single mom, I met a great man who loves my boys as his own. He didn’t even flinch at the thought of supporting a ready-made family and has always treated us as if it was his absolute privilege to be with us! He (we) sacrificed for it, with a couple nights in Napa instead of a honeymoon and shortly after we were married we ended up being blessed with more kids! An Aspergers diagnosis for our oldest caused a tough decision for me to stop working and stay home, and instead of saving for a house or getting yearly vacations…we just enjoy each day as it comes and are grateful for what we DO have…each other!

  • Amy Robinson

    I am a stay-at-home mom of four wonderful kids and my husband is in the Air Force. A trip like this would be a dream come ture and one we couldn’t afford on his military salary. It seems he will be deploying next Spring and what a great way to spend time as a family before he has to go. Whomever wins, I hope that they have an amazing time! What a great giveaway! Thank you!

  • Natalie Shmigelsky
  • Jeannie Wagner

    I have never been to the Cancun, but always have wanted to!!! I want to WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

  • Stef

    Never been to Cancun! Would love our first trip with our little girl to be there!

  • Amanda Ellis-Carroll

    My husband is a police officer and supporting our family while I am a nursing student. We have absolutely no budget to go away for a vacation whatsoever. He has lost his aunt and his pop in the last year and a vacation would do him good. Please give him a nice earned getaway!!

    Many thanks :)

  • Alicia Correia

    Cancun is our all time favorite place in the world. We love it! Love Modern Day Moms!

    This trip would be so great for our family. As a single income household, we have had to make many sacrifices. Traveling and elaborate trips are the things we have pushed aside to give the best we can to our three (and growing) children. We would be so blessed by a trip like this to have special time to grow and connect together while having tons of fun along the way!

  • Tammi D'Antoni

    We had a one day stop at Cancun during a cruise 7 years ago. Spending time really exploring and enjoying Cancun at the Hard Rock Hotel would be a wonderful way to celebrate our 40th anniversary (May 26, 2013).

  • Natalie Rios

    Okay, so we’ve never been to Cancun before! I’m excited imagining the possibility. When you have a big family, you always think about all the trips you can do once your kids are grown up…because (for families like ours) an actual big vacay, where you go somewhere amazing just isn’t possible. So, to actually consider taking your whole family and travelling to CANCUN seems so far fetched. I would totally use our tax return for the plane tix, pack our bags, and make memories having the time of our LIVES!!!!

  • mariah

    This would be a perfect vacation for my family. My fiance and I will be getting married in October and having a newborn life’s been a little top busy to plan much of a honeymoon. This would be awesome for s honeymoon and just to spend a little family time!

  • DanV

    I’d like to win this for a great family vacation

    I just bought and moved into my first home this week, and my brother is getting married this weekend, so my entire family is in the wedding — I NEED a vacation. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  • Holly Sifuentes

    I would love to win this vacation because it IS a vacation! We have not been on a vacation for over 3 years! My kids have only spent a total of 4 nights in a (cheap) hotel in their entire lives (7yo & 4yo). Even though they were cheap rooms, it was pretty special to them so they thought it was great! And no, we have never been to Cancun. We have only left our home state once in the past 7 years!!

  • NataSha Smith

    I would like to win because I have never been on a real vacation before & this seems like an awsesome experience :)

    I may not be a Mom yet…. but I would love to treat MY mom to this fabulous trip!! She did an AMAZING job raising me and my sister, and it would be fantastic to reward her with this unreal vacation package! Most people don’t take the time to show appreciation for all of the hard work that moms do… and I would love the opportunity to show my mom!

  • Jennifer Pannell

    Twice for vacation we have traveled to Cancun. It is such a wonderful place and you can be assured you will love every minute of it. I have a 25th wedding anniversary coming up and would love to spend it in Cancun. Even though it is our anniversary it would be great to have my family of four there to celebrate. We have been at the Cancun Palace (soon to be the Hard Rock) together before on our last trip and it was a blast times ten!

  • Christy

    Yes please! I need this!

  • Cassie Rudy

    This would be so amazing! I have a young small family and we have yet to ever go on vacation. The struggles of everyday life put the vision of vacation nowhere in sight. My husband is an amazing man who works to suport myself and our son (along with any stray family needing a place to rest their heads). This would be more than a dream come true!

  • Priscilla Marin

    This is amazing!! I would love to go on a family vacation to Cancun, especially since I’ve never been!

  • Jenny

    My almost 14 year old has been begging us for a tropical vacation for years. We usually drive 8 hours to Elkhart Lake, WI every year & we are ready for something new & fabulous! This past year has been a steam roller of a year with having a beautiful baby girl, turning 40, and losing my job due to federal cutbacks. A really nice vacation would be a great way to celebrate our blessings this year & forget about the stresses of life if only for a short time. Thank you for making one family really happy!!!

  • Jenny

    Yes please! Yes please! Thanks for making ‘one’ lucky family very happy!! Hoping it’s ours!!! ; ) Oh and no, we have never been to Cancun OR a Hard Rock Hotel so pick us!!

Something families don’t do often enough! Thank you for this opportunity!

    My husband and I need a vacation like this. We have two small children and love love love the idea of being about to bring them on a vaca like this. We haven’t been on a vacation of any sort since our honeymoon 8 years ago. This resort looks AMAZING!


    I can’t even imagine how great this trip would be!!! My 5 year old granddaughter would love to do this adventure!!

  • Liz

    Wow! I’d love to win! I’ve never been to Cancun…actually never left the US, so this would be amazing! Would love to take my little guy on such a fun trip. It would be his first big trip on a plane, and he’d love the kids area!

  • Melissa Ford

    My 3 kids LOVE the beach!! Taking a trip with 3 kids can be a big expense so this would be awesome!

  • Zenia Lasola-Smith

    First of all, thank you Modern Day Moms for giving us a chance to enter in this amazing giveaway. My husband and I have always wanted to go to Cancun but it was never in our budget, and still isn’t with 2 boys. My husband’s birthday is on September 1, which is when you are announcing the winner. This would make me wife of the year if we get this prize. My son, Derek, is always talking about going to Mexico. This would be such a thrill for both our boys. We would love to go on this incredible trip and we’ll make sure to post pics and comments throughout this trip of all the fabulous amenities this resort has to offer.

    We would LOVE this trip! After being married for almost 8 years and having 3 kids we really haven’t had much time for anything. Shortly after getting out of the army my husband jumped on with a govt. contracting job and that took him to Kuwait. He was there for 2 years and I just couldn’t be away from him any more so I packed up the kids (then 2 and 1) and we moved to Kuwait to be with my husband. We lived in Kuwait for 2 more years added another kiddo to the pack and then moved back to the states. We have been in TX for almost 2 years now and the hubby will be on his way back over seas for another year or 2 tour soon. Actually getting a vacation and spending some awesome time together as a family would be totally amazing!

  • Shani Heiblim

    I will have been married for 2 years on Friday, and we still haven’t gone on any sort of honeymoon! We had a baby this past march who is the apple of my eye! But it makes it even harder for us go away… This trip would be amazing for us and our little one to enjoy a much needed vacation…

Now, 14 yrs down the road we have 2 wonderful children who would not only love this trip but benefit from it as well. It would be awesome to spend quality time together at an amazing place before my husband is deployed once again.

The beach in cancun looks AWESOME in comparison!

    This would be an awesome vacation for my family. My husband & I were unable to enjoy a honeymoon due to a serious medical condition I was diagnosed with less than 2 mos before our wedding 7 yrs ago. When I see photos from people’s honeymoons & see how happy they are it really reminds me of what we missed out on. I would like to have those memories as well as make more with my children. We haven’t been able to take a real vacation together as a family. This would be an amazing trip to win!! :)

    I would like to win this package because tomorrow is my husband and I 5th year anniversary and we have never gone on a vacation ever together, not even a honeymoon. Now we have a child it is hard for me to just pick up and leave without her because of my anxieties. With this, We would be able to take grandma with us to also watch the little one in the evening and she can be apart of the kids club in the day. So we would have more freedom to have a great time together as a couple when needed. :-)
