We have some summertime favorite spots that we love to venture to and hang out at for at least a night. We thought we would share some of these summer retreats. Costa de Cocos Bungalows in the Costa Maya This is a remote hotel in the Costa Maya. We feel we are at the end of the world when we visit. This is old...

Underwater Summer Camp

Posted June 15, 2016 by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Services,Watersports

Underwater Summer Camp

This is how summer camp should be. Parents get a vacation and kids have an adventures. Well, this is the reality here in the Riviera Maya and Underwater Summer Camp can be done any day of the week! I remember my memorable days of summer camp. Crafts, canoeing, camping, camp fires, and just being a kid or a teenager. But not all of us can afford 4 weeks at camp, and most parents are still stuck working grind while they ship off their kids summer camp. That is not a break for...

Sun Wake Up - A True Tale of a 4 Year Old's Riviera Maya Vacation

Its 5:30 am and there is a tap on my shoulder. Two little eyes peer at me from the side of the bed. These eyes turn from curious to excited as this little 4 year old sees his aunt turn over to kiss the little hand that woke her up this morning. "It's time to go see the sun, Aunty." I reach for my little man and lift him up into the bed. We laugh and tickle each other as we roll around on the bed. We both crawl to the edge and get dressed for our morning ritual. Shorts, tshirts, sunscreen,...

CAW

Last month we attended the grand opening of Coco's Animal Welfare CAW newest facility in Playa del Carmen. It was a great evening that celebrated everything we love about the Riviera Maya; friends, community, volunteers, and animals. Some people have asked me why we choose to support animal welfare programs when there are children and families, and students who need help. Our support in Riviera Maya communities extends beyond CAW. We support various programs both locally and internationally...

History Lesson - The Story of Xcaret Eco Park

Xcaret is one of the Riviera Maya's prized ecoparks that educates over one million visitors per year about Mayan history, local marine and wild life, indigenous culture, and the delicate ecosystem that defines the Mexican Caribbean. Its history is fascinating, the decisions and visions that developed the park determined partly by the history of the area, and partly by an architect, with insight from a family of entrepreneurs, who felt that the property should be part of a bigger and more public...

My Favorite Ruins Destination in the Riviera Maya

Posted June 6, 2016 by Kay Walten in Loco Adventures,Riviera Maya Activities

My Favorite Ruins Destination in the Riviera Maya

If I had to choose one Mayan Archeological site to visit in the Riviera Maya, I would pick Muyil. Just south of Tulum this ancient city, which is not well known, played an important role in shaping the inland Maya communities through trade routes and imported products. I love the Peten architecture, a style similar to the Mayan city of Tikal found in Guatemala, its proximity to the lagoons of the Sian Ka'an, its energy, and most of all the tranquility. This is not a popular site for...
