Tulum art and color on the beaches of Tulum mexico in the Riviera Maya

Tulum has always had a special place in our heart. Famous for its beaches, there is a real community and creative feel to Tulum that continues to be enhanced throughout the years. Tulum is attracting local and international artists to the town and this photo highlights some of the unexpected art you may find. This door is at the beachfront hotel Hemingway's. It is a nice surprise when using the public bathrooms to see the bathrooms stalls painted with vibrant colors and a Mexican man and woman....

Riviera Maya photo – Efficiency at its best

Relax. That is what a vacation is all about right. Recharge your batteries, recharge your mind, take a break and renew yourself.

There are days when you see interesting things in the Riviera Maya and the piñata man is no exception. After a double take and little smile, our comment was, that man is efficient and resourceful. After 20 years of living in the Riviera Maya, there are some days where we still do a double take when we see something out of the ordinary. Funny enough we are noticing that we get a double take when others witness the Locogringos doing something out of the ordinary. The exception is the norm...

Check this photo out! How great are these Mexican accents in this well designed ocean front hacienda. I find it dreamy, respectful and a great use of vintage tools found in the Yucatan.

Brownies, ice cream, chocolates, banana loaf, croissants, chocolate croissants, cheesecake, and more! Wash it all down with a super creamy latte or if you feel like some great Mexican hot...

There is something about sitting at the computer and looking out on the Caribbean that can get your sweet tooth going. Okay, some days any scene can get the sweet tooth going and today was one of those days! So off to the store I went and gathered some of my favorite Rivera Maya candies to eat while I work on the computer, look out at the Caribbean and just enjoy the day. When visiting a new country or heading back to old territory, it is always fun to check out the candies indigenous to...

Dirty martini in Playa del Carmen, a great hang out with great martini's

This is a popular spot in Playa del Carmen that is frequented by locals and visitors. Besides that fact that they have great drink specials, a fun location, caters to all ages (this is not just for the young at heart) and is owned by a long time Playa resident, Greco, the Dirty Martini is a great place to check out at any time of the day! Our favorite martini is the cucumber martini rimmed with a spicy salt that has you running back for more. Not only is Greco a great host, but his music is...
