Costa maya, Mexico

Have you ever wondered where the people who live in Cancun or Riviera Maya go to vacation?

Costa Maya Travel Tip – Shop in town, not the port

Posted by Kay Walten in Costa Maya Activities,Mexico Destinations,Mexico Vacation Tips

Mahahual cruise ship port

Mahahual is a great Costa Maya beach town with lots to offer, so there's no wonder why Caribbean cruise ships have made it one of their major stops. So much so they even built a port filled with activities and shops to entertain their passengers. Refrain from shopping at the port shops but rather in the actual town where the prices are far more reasonable and just about everything is negotiable. Find a hotel in Mahahual.

Costa Maya Photo of the Day – Balamku Inn

Posted by Kay Walten in Costa Maya Activities,Mexico Destinations,Mindful Traveler,Sustainable Tourism

Mahahual, Mexico

We LOVE the round design of Balamku Inn in Mahahual, Costa Maya. This eco-chic hotel is all about sustainable tourism, right down to the shampoo they provide their guests. The wind and the sun are their power sources,  all waste water supports constructed wetlands and when building they take special efforts to protect the endangered trees on their property. No wonder they were nominated one of Mexico's leading green hotels. Check out other fabulous Costa Maya hotels.

Riviera Maya Photo of the Day – Glorious hammocks!

Posted January 27, 2014 by Kay Walten in Mexican Art,Mexican Culture,Riviera Maya Photos,Sustainable Tourism

shopping in the Riviera Maya

Hammocks are probably the most popular Riviera Maya and Yucatan souvenir - right up there with gaudy, giant sombreros. They are the Mayan bed, more common in local houses than mattresses. The hammocks sold here are hand made by locals. Buying hammocks in family owned shops like this one in Macario Gomez is sustainable tourism. We LOVE lounging in a hammock with a good book or a refreshing cocktail. Discover other ways to support sustainable tourism.

Puerto Morelos Vacation Tip – The hidden restaurant

Posted 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...
