dolphins & mayans

Playa del Carmen artist, Jose Llehi Sol displayed his work at Casa del Agua on 5th Avenue last Wednesday. His photographic series entitled "Los Mayas" featured models adorned and painted in ancient Maya dress while interacting with nature. The photos while staged were visually stunning. A fierce Maya warrior painted in jaguar spots, surrounded by a flock of green parrots all intensely staring back at you is most captivating. The underwater shots of Maya and dolphins had an undeniable sensuality...

My Paradise

Posted May 17, 2011 by LocoGringo in Guest Bloggers,Riviera Maya Destinations

T. Delano age 21 first time to Cancun

My first vacation to Mexico was in 1991. I was 21 years old and traveling with my roommate. She was a seasoned traveler to Mexico and regaled me with tales of a place called “Akumal”. Unfortunately, we never made it to this magical destination during our brief stay in Cancun. In my mind and from everything she told me, I imagined paradise. A couple of years later, I traveled again to Mexico but this time with my husband. We planned an all inclusive stay at an Oasis Akumal resort. The...

Saying Goodbye to an Akumal Institution

Que Onda Restaurant

Upon hearing the news, my head spun with disbelief - the first stage of grieving. "WHAT?! QUE ONDA IS CLOSING PERMANENTLY?! WHY?!" At first, I thought is was just some vicious rumor directed at my plans for a Summer vacation in Akumal filled with fresh pasta and pomodoro sauce just like my grandmother used to make, but alas, it was true. My little Italian trattoria in the Mexican jungle was shutting its palm fronds to the general public and becoming a private retreat for artists...

Learn how to scuba dive

learn to scuba dive PADI

I took some close friends for their first dive last week. It's eye opening to introduce someone you have known for over twenty years to experience something for the first time that you do every day. One of my friends said that their first dive felt like being in the womb and flying over alien cities all at once. I guess that is one of the better descriptions I have heard. After several years of teaching people to dive here in Akumal, I have generally given up trying to describe diving. Instead...
