Riviera Maya Travel Tip – Buy a Beach Chair and Pass it On!

Posted by Kay Walten in Mexico Vacation Tips

Riviera Maya beach chairs and buying beach chairs in the Riveria Maya for your beach vacation

There is nothing like unfolding your comfy beach chair and placing it smack dab in the shallow water to keep cool on a hot, Riviera Maya day at the beach.  Beach chairs, while convenient to have on your beach vacation, are not a practical packing item.  Consider buying one at the local Wal-Mart or supermarket in Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Tulum.  This small investment will make your valuable beach time so much more enjoyable. At the end of your trip, leave it at your vacation rental so...

Whenever I see these funny little guys while out snorkeling in Akumal Bay, it brightens my day. Unlike other fish, their fins move in a rotary motion propelling them through the water, always reminding me of a child's bath toy. Check out some great vacation rentals near Akumal Bay!    

Akumal vacation tip – Sunday is a food day in Akumal

cochinita pibil in akumal every sunday

Akumal makes Sunday even more than just FUNday. Every Sunday in the pueblo of Akumal local family style restaurants serve up cochinita pibil, AKA pulled pork sandwiches. Mexican pulled pork is a laborious process for the cook so Akumal has decided to make it a special day in town. Cochinita if done right, is marinated pork that is cooked in the ground. Yup, it is slow roasted in banana leaves in a submersed fire pit. Sound complicated right? This is how a true cochinita pibil is cooked. A...

Riviera Maya vacation tip – how to avoid expensive wifi charges

Posted by Kay Walten in Mexico Vacation Tips,Riviera Maya Activities

where to find wifi in the Riviera Maya

We are still amazed that some hotel chains charge for wifi. In our perfect world, wifi would be free no matter where you are. We would love it if the owner of Mexico internet services, Mr. Carlos Slim, would open up free wifi throughout Mexico as a gesture to his home country. But as we know free wifi is a dream, and not the reality. Imagine if tourist areas had free wifi so we could all share on social media in real time....that would be sweet! Riviera Maya small businesses are great at...

Playa del Carmen vacation tip – Cheap movie Wednesday

Posted by Kay Walten in Mexico Vacation Tips,Riviera Maya Activities

cheap movie wednesdays in playa del carmen and cancun

On those rainy tropical days, a cheap movie is always a great idea! Playa del Carmen has two movie centers and Cancun has various movie theatres. Our favorite day to go is Wednesday afternoons, when there are cheap tickets, hardly anyone in the theatres, and fresh popcorn. Wednesdays are cheap movies days with a single adult ticket priced at 19 pesos. That is $1.50 USD for a great flick. Now you know why we like to go to cheap movie Wednesday! The movie theatres in Playa del Carmen are...
