In case you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a mermaid, then perhaps Salma Hayek can give you a hint. On Thursday, the 52-year-old actress, who has been living it up during her tropical vacation shared a video to Instagram where she's taking a dip in the ocean. She captioned the pic, “Mermaid Life. Vida de Serena.” The crystal clear water revealed to her 8.4 million followers that Salma has the perfect body for a daring cheetah-print bikini. In the clip, Salma looks radiant as she lies belly face-down with sexy, sun-drenched tresses and oversized sunglasses. There’s no doubt that she is the epitome of beach-glam!

She wrote, “I made it to the #water!!! Llegue al agua!!!” In the following post, she showed off a pic meditating on the beach by the water. “#Zen,” she wrote, which perfectly makes sense since she has recently opted for meditation as a means of balance for mind and body.

There is no doubt her recent 'grams back up the saying "en el mar la vida es mas sabrosa" (life is sweeter by the sea). It’s always inspiring to see how the mom-of-one is just as confident makeup-free, or in a revealing bikini, as she is in a long gown at a red carpet. In the past, Salma opened up about the one thing she hates about getting older and it has zero to do with her body.

She told the Edit, "The worst part of the aging process has been my eyes. Not the wrinkles — the eyes themselves.” She continued, “I’m such a visual person and (now) I cannot read without depending on glasses. It has been really, really sad. The eyes, for me, that’s worse than the menopause.” Well, there you go!
