Waking up to the sound of the ocean, spending the afternoon fieldside with a michilada in hand, and socializing with polo players is how H&S editor Erin Gilmore spent the weekend while on location in Cancún, Mexico to report on the Copa del Rey Polo Tournament at the El Rey Polo Club. Polo and international travel is an enticing combination, and when H&S was invited to Cancún to soak in the late spring sunshine and watch riders from half a dozen countries compete in this annual tournament, it was easy to say yes!

The polo club was literally carved out of the Mexican jungle outside of the resort area of Cancún, and its single field lies at the end of a rocky dirt road. But the journey was definitely worth the destination.

Look for the full article in the June/July issue of H&S, and until then enjoy this sneak photo peek of an amazing, fashionable, and fun filled weekend of travel and equestrian sport in Cancún!
