Posted February 20, 2017 by Kay Walten in Mexico Destinations

rio lagartos 11

Rio Lagartos has a big place in our heart! This tiny fishing village, which still operates as an important fishing village in the Gulf of Mexico, is a bird watchers haven and a great day trip for the curious. From the pink pools of Las Coloradas, to the breeding grounds of the Flamingos, from the super small community to the old school way of life, Rio Lagartos is an environmental nucleus that must be seen. Read this overview of Rio Lagartos, an article about the salt mines of Las Coloradas,...

Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurant Options For Your Christmas in the Riviera Maya

Posted December 23, 2016 by Kay Walten in Food,Mexico Destinations,Riviera Maya Restaurants

vegan tacos

I have to say, vegan and vegetarian choices have multiplied exponentially in the last few years. A friend of mine moved here in 2000 and was looking for vegan basics like Almond Milk, Soya Milk, Tofu, and gluten free bread. At that time, there was nothing.
