Family Beach Vacations in the Riviera Maya- Memories that last

Posted by Kay Walten in Family vacations

family vacation in the Riviera Maya are sure to build lasting memories

  When I get together with my family, the conversation always seem to direct itself to memories of a family vacation. As kids we took a lot of road trips, in a van, or with a camper, or in the station wagon. Summers and spring break were spent driving locally, through the US to unique and interesting places.

Tulum photo of the day – a Tulum archive photo

Posted by Kay Walten in Mexican Culture,Riviera Maya Destinations,Sustainable Tourism

This is such a wonderful vacation photo of a young child and his father relaxing on the beach without a care in the world. This is what it means to be relaxed

This is an old Tulum photo but not much has changed at the beach cross roads. Before the internet this is how visitors found their hotel, a maze of signs at the end of road leading from the highway. The signs are still there, not all hotels are represented but the signs are a part of the Tulum hotel beach road culture. This is something that will never go away! Check out Tulum beach hotels and see if there is a Tulum hotel that just seems to be calling your name!
