With 20 years of living la vida loca, we have quiet a few local secrets that we think you may like, can save some pesos and find that perfect little spot that makes your vacation special.

Become a passionate traveler with the Insiders Guide to the Riviera Maya

Having these local secrets under your belt may just turn you into what we call, a passionate traveler. A passionate traveler is someone who loves to get into the lifestyle of a destination, into the culture, the groove. Your vacation becomes a little more interesting, a little more local and you will begin to understand not just the sea and the beach, but the culture of the Riviera Maya.

What has attracted so many visitors to the area is the ability to become a part of the Riviera Maya community. Your vacation becomes more personal and fun when you can reunite with old friends from last year, share adventures, bump into locals at the grocery store and meet their kids or partners. In many vacation destinations you are separated from the regular life that people live and your relationships seem to be on one level. This is not the Rivera Maya, which is why we love it. If you want to be a passionate traveler, you can be. People are happy to invite you into their community and share what they do on a daily basis. The separation only exists if you want it to exist.

Knowing local secrets is a great way to make your vacation better
