My Birthday in the tropical forest, Key Largo!


I always tend to find reasons to travel and my birthday was just a perfect reason for another travel adventure. Starting this year I have decided to travel to a new destination every year on my birthday and make some extraordinary memories every year. This time I spent my 27th Birthday in Key Largo, one of the islands in Florida. It is also called the diving capital of the world because of it numerous diving sites in the Atlantic Ocean.

To name a few, Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon and Key West are a string of islands that stretch across Southern Florida also called the Florida Keys. After visiting Key West last year, I really wanted to explore the other islands and picked Key Largo since it was just a couple of hours from Miami. John Pennekamp CoralΒ Reef State Park in Key LargoΒ is very famous among divers for its shallow coral reefs which makes excellent snorkeling location. So we were really excited to take aΒ snorkeling trip there. We were lucky that our guide decided to take us to the Christ of the abyss location for snorkeling. The bronze statue of Jesus Christ stands underwater and makes one of the favorite spots for snorkeling.

After spending the day snorkeling in the ocean, we then headed to our resort, which to my surprise this was by far the best place I have ever stayed during my travels. We stayed at Hilton Key Largo resort which had its own private hammock beach and huge tropical forest. Our room overlooked the forest area I enjoyed every moment of our stay at this resort. I celebrated my outdoor birthday dinner with live music at one of the local restaurants and it was like a dream come true to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather in the month of December. Now that is why Florida is one of my all time favorite destinations to travel. What’s yours?

  1. Wow, i was in Florida too from Dec 31 to Jan 5, and you know what, in Key West from Jan 4-5. I covered Miami, Fort Lauderdale and other attractions during earlier days of the trip.
    I drove to all these location after landing in FL and took off from there too.

    Happy Belated Birthday…we wanted to stay in KL too, but Key West had already provided for enough πŸ™‚


    • Oh what a coincidence , we also flew to Fort Lauterdale and drove to Miami and Key Largo. Key West is great too, I loved it when I visited there last year with my parents. I am sure you must have enjoyed the drive to Key West which is one of the most scenic drives. Thank you very much for your wishes Alok πŸ™‚

      Also can’t wait to read your Florida Travel blog πŸ™‚
