Drippy sand castles are an easy way to build super interesting and easy sand castles with little ones on your beach vacation. Very little creativity is needed, just have lots of hands, water (the Caribbean Sea) and sand (the Tulum beach). Voila! Super strong sand castles that will amaze even the adults!

Riviera Maya Vacation Tip of the Day – Freeze your water bottles

Posted by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Vacation Tips

Mayan Riviera Photo of the Day - Perfect end to your beach vacation

Now this is super clever and is a trick my dad taught me many moons ago. Cold water is essential on your beach vacation. IT is hard to keep small ice cubes cold in your beach cooler but with this vacation tip you will be sure to have cold water all day long. The night before slip your water bottles in the freezer and let the bottles turn from water to ice. Pack the frozen water bottles in the cooler and you have double purpose coolers. Not only will your water be cold all day long but anything...

Riviera Maya Photo of the Day – Sleeping Children mean a great vacation

Posted April 28, 2014 by Kay Walten in Family vacations

happy little one on a beach vacation

There is nothing better than young chilren (and old children :) ) having an impromptu nap in the shade from playing too much! Beach vacations are built for outdoor play, which leads to early naps and longer naps. 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...

Tulum Vacation Tip – Tulum Running Route

Posted April 25, 2014 by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Vacation Tips

Tulum running route for active vacationers

Not sure where the best place to run in Tulum is? The beach can be a first choice but if you are looking to complete a road run, we have the perfect place for all those runners out there. A favorite running location for all of our Tulum friends is the road that leads to the Tulum beach from Highway 307. If you are looking on Google maps, this 'road' is called Hwy 109. There is a great sidewalk, partial shade and will either lead you into Tulum town where you can turn around or explore further...

Akumal photo of the day – Turtle Spotting in the Caribbean

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. After living here for 20 years, the day seems off when we don't make a...

LocoGringo-Do-it-yourself-travel-guides-for-the-Riviera-Maya-Yucatan-and-Costa-Maya

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,...
