It's always great to have a best friend by your side to start a new year  and if you and that best friend are relaxing on a beach in Mexico, all the better! That's the case for Glee star Lea Michele (Rachel) and bestie Jonathan Groff (Jesse), who showed off their bathing-suit bods during their recent south-of-the-border trip. Take us with you next time, you two!

Lea took to Twitter over the weekend to post some shots of their very enviable trip to Mexico to celebrate the start of 2014. "I ❤️ JG! #Mexico," she adorably captions a pic on January 4 of herself and J-Groff with huge smiles as they pose in front of the turquoise water. And yes, Jonathan is shirtless. Let's not let that fact get lost in the fray.

"I ❤️ Mexico! Best vacation with my best friend..." she captions a pair of photos. In the top one, Frozen star Jonathan — whose new HBO show Looking premieres this month — smiles in their infinity pool, and in the bottom one, Lea looks absolutely stunning in her bikini while soaking up rays next to the water.

The previous year was definitely a tough one for Lea, as Cory Monteith (Finn) passed away during the summer, but it's great that she's getting to start 2014 with a little relaxation and a close friend.
