We love our travel itineraries. We have focused on the things you must do, highlighted important places to see, but unlike other guide books we have added our personal favorite things to do.

Here’s the deal on guidebooks. Most of the travel guides out there are either outdated or the writer gleaned information from others. Many guidebooks writers have not been to the areas or attractions they are writing about. We are in the position to experience the activities we write about, not just once but many times. We have been there and done that and more than once. We know what to skip, and what activities are worthy of some deeper investigation. We feel blessed to be able to report back to you the true nature of an experience.

What is the best way to use our itineraries?

Just because a travel itinerary is titled Coba ruins, or Tulum Ruins, does not mean that it is JUST about these Mayan Archaeological site. Have a look at how we planned the day. You might want to skip the ruins and just hang in Tulum. Or you may want to visit the Coba ruins and skip the suggested cenotes. These itineraries are packed with more information than just one site, so dig in and see what we highlighted.

Your Most Important Vacation Plan Back Up – Loco Gringo Concierge

If you are strapped for time, are not a planner (not all of us are) or just want to cut to the chase, Paulina our concierge is a great person to use as your planner. She loves the Riviera Maya. Her weekends are spent going places, doing things, and investigating the latest activities and tours so she can pass on this information to you.

Her weekend nights are eating out, checking out local entertainment and just understanding what the heck is going on out there. Yes, she has her work cut out for her, but she is really good at it. Really good at it. We also report back to her and share information when we go somewhere new for dinner, or go back to an old favorite that may have a new menu, location or hours.

If we could make her into an app we would, but for now she is are are EI not AI. She is the Excessive Intelligence, not Artificial Intelligence. Her ability to listen to what you need and give you great choices is truly a skill. She will even book it for you as well!

Finding the perfect day in the Riviera Maya is easy but there is something special about a local letting you in on favorite places to go, or things to do. What we have done is created perfect days for those who just want to walk out their front door, look at the beach and that is perfect for them. Others want to experience the deeper cultural, historical and environmental diversity this area has to offer.

That is what makes us different. We have great accommodations that overlook and open onto the beach and super cool activities that leave you with lasting vacation memories. Our perfect day is making sure that you do have the perfect day.
