i think paradise is defined by soft sand, towering palm trees, coconuts and hammocks. uvero beach in costa maya, mexico fit this definition to a t. probably THE most beautiful beach i've seen (outside of thailand).
The beach is my happy place. One of the things on my bucket list is to go to a beach with palm trees stretching to the water. I might be old and wrinkled before I get to do it, but damn it at least I did it!
