Celebrating ancestral heritage in the Riviera Maya

Part of what makes the Riviera Maya a glorious place to live and visit is the mix of contemporary, ancestral and Mexican history. The Riviera Maya as a tourist destination is quite young compared to other destinations in Mexico. Having new visitors to the area year and after year is a great way to share the diverse history of Mexico as a country, the rich history of the area and the contemporary stories that have made the Riviera Maya a place on the map. Mayan stories and heritage play a...

Tulum ariel view and beach road photo

  Are you heading to Tulum for your Valentine's Day weekend? Or are you in the midst of your Tulum vacation planning and are not sure what to do about transportation. We admit, we prefer to have a car in Tulum as the city is spread out and requires a vehicle if you want to explore. Depending on where you are staying, you may be happy with a bicycle, or walking but know the lay of the land first. Many hotels in Tulum are either down the beach road or out of town. This could mean a 10 km...

February is love month in the Riviera Maya and what a better way to start it off but with this great saying!

love on the beach photo in the Riviera Maya

We are torn, it is love at the beach in the Riviera Maya or is it loving the beach in the Riviera Maya.

February is the month of love, and love can mean many different things to different people. Instead of pinpointing one February love we looked at all of the lovin' that is had at our front doorstep, and believe you me there is a lot of...

Riviera maya travel tips take the collectivo

The days of chicken buses and hitch hiking are gone along the coast, though you will still see hitch hikers on the beach road in Tulum getting rides into town. Hello fancy air conditioned vans and big massive buses with television, movies, and in some cases on bus beverage service. Public transportation rocks for those quick trips, or even not so quick trips making the entire Yucatan easy to get around and open for all to see. We currently are a one car family and if I am going to Merida or...
