Chocolate tours in Riviera Maya

Puerto Morelos Vacation Tip – The hidden restaurant

Posted January 27, 2014 by Kay Walten in Mexico Destinations,Riviera Maya Destinations,Riviera Maya Restaurants,Riviera Maya Vacation Tips

Riviera Maya restaurant

Puerto Morelos has lots of great dining options, but one little gem we really love is Restaurante Las Palmeras. If you didn't know where it was you would walk right passed some of the freshest seafood for the best price in town!  The facade of the restaurant is easy to overlook and the restaurant itself is hidden beyond souvenir shops and a dive shop (located next to Pelicanos on the beach), but once you step inside the view is, well see for yourself. Check out the laid back fishing village...

Posted January 20, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Loco Adventures,Mexico Vacation Tips,Yucatan Activities

cantinas in yucatan mexico

Cantinas have always been a part of Mexican culture. The phrase "Mexican cantina" brings to mind smokey saloons filled with gun slingers.

Do your own cantina crawl with some of our favorite Merida cantinas: La Negrita located on the corner of Calle 62 and 49 El Lucero del Alba on Calla 56 and 47 El Gallito 0n Calle 45 between 60 and 62 Pico de...

Yucatan Photo of the Day – Fine Mayan dining

Posted January 14, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Riviera Maya Restaurants,Yucatan Activities

restaurant in valladolid yucatan

One of our favorite restaurants in the little colonial gem of Valladolid is this place located on Friar's Street right next to the convent. Mayan specialty dishes served in a pleasant atmosphere. If you are planning a day trip to Valladolid while vacationing in the Riviera Maya, which we encourage you to do, have lunch at Taberna de los Frailes. Include in your Valladolid day trip, a visit to the nearby Ek Balam Ruins.

Posted January 10, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Mexican Culture,Riviera Maya Photos

tulum, riviera maya

This Caribbean town's colors are brilliant everywhere you look! And everywhere you look so are there street vendors. Fruits, snacks, newspapers, ice creams, you name it, it is probably being carted on a tricycle down the streets of Tulum. We LOVE the Mexican tradition of street vendors, and the convenience too! Discover Tulum Pueblo.
