Yucatan photo of the day – family market trip to Valladolid

Posted April 4, 2013 by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Photos

Valladolid market in the Yucatan

The Yucatan is the food hub of the area with local farmers and ranchers working hard to produce fresh fruits and vegetables for the Penisula. Valladolid has a daily market that makes a great road trip for the family and only requires a half day trip, not a full day adventure. If you have kids, this is a great way to open them up to a unique cultural experience while getting your chores done. Unique foods indigenous to the area can be found, Local produce is fresh, fresh, fresh....The market...

Riviera Maya photo of the day – Kids see the darndest things

Posted April 3, 2013 by Kay Walten in Riviera Maya Photos

Without the blue head and fancy plumes of an adult Ocelated turkey I could not say for sure, for sure that this was the actual Mayan turkey. After doing some late night research, I recovered myself as the smartest aunt in the world and was able to verify that this...

Keep it simple stupid - uncomplicated family vacations in the Riviera Maya

Keep it simple! Your Riviera Maya vacation is better when you keep it simple! Kids need a vacation as much as anyone else. The beach, one toy, some quiet time or exploring time is enough to keep any kid happy while on vacation. As a parent, it can be better to let your kids explore new territory for a few hours and let them understand their new surroundings. We all love to help our kids but a little bit of parent free time (watching from afar) can be a blessing for both of you. Looking for...

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

Posted March 13, 2013 by Kay Walten in Mexican Culture,Riviera Maya Photos,Sustainable Tourism

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...
