Posted April 17, 2013 by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Destinations,Riviera Maya Photos

family vacations are popular in the Riviera maya

When people think of the Riviera Maya, Cancun, Playa del Carmen or even Tulum, spring break parties seem to come to mind. Well let this photo of the Riviera Maya debunk all of those thoughts as you see families on the beach and not the college students (or adults) looking for a good time. Mexico as a culture is very family focused. As more workers are needed in the Riviera Maya to support the many businesses along the coast, families are the center of attention in most Riviera Maya...

Cenote Cristalino entrance and store near Tulum mexico

This photo was taken at Centoe Cristalino just north of Tulum. It is pictures like these that warm our hearts and give us a big smile when we are in Mexico. The store is at the entrance to the cenote, a fresh water natural sink hole where families and friends go to swim on our hot Riviera Maya days. What we love is the hand painted signs all over the exterior of the store welcoming everyone to this magical place. 'The cenote is a marvelous location to be enjoyed by everyone in the family'...

This Akumal beach photo in the Riviera Maya was taken on a Monday morning as we welcomed a new week. At this point we are not sure how else to welcome in the week.

Akumal, located south of the Cancun airport has three bays along its shores, private vacation villa rentals, private homes and of course the turtles in the ocean. Happy Monday to all of you who are here and those who are...

This a great candid shot taken in Akumal at the entrance to the Yal ku lagoon. The lagoon is super famous in Akumal and throughout the coast of the Riviera Maya.

Rio Lagartos is a true working fishing village in the Gulf Of Mexico just 3 hours from the coast of the Riviera Maya.

These are two great kids just having fun on their beach vacation in the Riviera Maya. Love, love, love the fact that kids can play outdoors all day long (remember the sun screen) and explore. When was the last time your kids could roam around outdoors, be amused by so little, yet have such amazing smiles! The whole point of a beach vacation is to have the option of an outdoor playground for your kids. Happy children that are amazed and engaged means down time for mom and dad. The beach is a...
