happy little one on a beach vacation

There is nothing better than young chilren (and old children :) ) having an impromptu nap in the shade from playing too much!

Nothing is more beautiful or perfect than a tired child on vacation who has played so much, played so hard that they just....fall asleep. Looking for the perfect vacation rental for your next family vacation that will encourage longer and more naps? Check out our Riviera Maya...

Easter falls about a month after the Spring Equinox this year but that does not mean that a visit to the Coba ruins during your Easter vacation is not a worth while endeavor. We love all Myan ruins and particularly love the Mayan archeological site of Coba. The main pyramid can still be climbed unlike other Mayan sites, you have the option of using the Mayan Limos to take you around this large site,...
