family vacation tips for the riviera maya

Let's all be together! Villa rentals are a great way to have everyone together. Hotel rooms tend to separate everyone, making it more challenging to maintain a feeling of togetherness. Also, in a villa you have everything at your fingertips instead of having the added chore of packing up every time you get together for meals or beach time. There is no need to pack your days full of adventures at advertised tourism spots. One or two day trips are enough. Too many parents are making the same...

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...

snorkeling with the turtles in akumal bay

This is a photo taken in Akumal Bay on a morning snorkel. We love going out early into the bay and looking for turtles. We feel that the day just starts off right when you put on our snorkel gear and head to the sea or Yal Ku Lagoon in search of our sea friends. The Caribbean side of the Mexico is well-known for sea turtles and programs that protect the various varieties of sea turtles that call this part of Mexico home.

The Maya did not recognize Easter holidays, but they did celebrate the Spring Equinox in style. 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,...
