Creating a Family Friendly Cenote Experience

Posted March 26, 2015 by Kay Walten in Guest Bloggers,Riviera Maya Activities

Family friendly cenotes

When you vacation in the Yucatan Peninsula, it is almost a given that visiting a cenote will be on your ‘must-do’ list. However, swimming in a sinkhole or cave for the first time can be an intimidating experience for some kids. We get that. Its dark, there are a lot of squishy fish and sometimes even bats. But done right dipping their toe into one of these magnificent turquoise pools of water doesn’t have to be as unnerving as you might think. If you are interested in exploring the...

BabyMoons are not overrated…especially when they are at Be Tulum

Posted December 12, 2014 by Kay Walten in Family vacations,Guest Bloggers

katie babymoon two

My husband and I are expecting our first child so the last several months have been filled with so many new ideas, concepts, and feelings.  Needless to say, it can get overwhelming.  So when friends brought up having a "BabyMoon", I was immediately on board.  The idea of taking a trip just my husband & I is always appealing but what made it even more special was that we agreed to just focus on us and leave the "baby talk" at home. We were blessed to be able to stay in a stunning suite...

NEW Loco Adventures – Paddleboarding in a Cenote

Posted November 27, 2013 by Kay Walten in Guest Bloggers,Riviera Maya Activities,Watersports

Paddleboarding in the Riviera Maya

In the spirit of trying something that I have never done before, I decided on an activity that has intrigued me for months…Stand Up Paddleboarding.  After all, I like to consider myself somewhat adventurous but am not very athletic, thus some of the newer sports and trends are just not for me.  So when our friends at Extreme Control told me about their new Paddleboarding Tours, I jumped at the chance to experience this new sport for myself. On Sunday we gathered at Casa Cenote to begin...

The rest of us will be sweating it out in the tropical heat looking for ways to keep the kids entertained for the next two months.

Posted February 28, 2012 by Kay Walten in Guest Bloggers,Riviera Maya Activities

Tao Inspired Living

When people speak about December 21, 2012 as a potentially world changing event, one of the most common explanations is that it has to do with something "cosmic" beyond our control or understanding, such as the alignment of planets and stars. In fact, the Mayan Calendar, which is at the root of much of the debate and discussion about 2012 is all about alignment of planets, stars, and their impact on the world. Living in the heart of the Mayan Lands, near Tulum Mexico, we see people traveling...
