Supporting Sustainable Business in the Riviera Maya

Posted March 12, 2014 by Kay Walten in Mexico Destinations,Mindful Traveler,Riviera Maya Destinations,Riviera Maya Restaurants,Riviera Maya Services,Sustainable Tourism

sustainable businesses in the riviera maya

Everyone has heard the sustainable battle cry "Buy local!" When traveling, the 'buy local' focus changes.  Instead of looking for products from your home country, look to buying and enjoying things from where you're visiting. It is the difference between eating at McDonald's and buying tacos from a street vendor, or choosing to purchase a dress made by a local artisan rather than one sold at Walmart.  An important practice of the mindful traveler is to support each destination's local...

Aztec ruler, Montezuma, was reported to have indulged in several cups of liquid chocolate before visiting his many wives.

Posted January 27, 2014 by Kay Walten in Mexico Destinations,Riviera Maya Destinations,Riviera Maya Restaurants,Riviera Maya Vacation Tips

Riviera Maya restaurant

Puerto Morelos has lots of great dining options, but one little gem we really love is Restaurante Las Palmeras. If you didn't know where it was you would walk right passed some of the freshest seafood for the best price in town!  The facade of the restaurant is easy to overlook and the restaurant itself is hidden beyond souvenir shops and a dive shop (located next to Pelicanos on the beach), but once you step inside the view is, well see for yourself. Check out the laid back fishing village...

Posted January 14, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Riviera Maya Restaurants,Yucatan Activities

restaurant in valladolid yucatan

One of our favorite restaurants in the little colonial gem of Valladolid is this place located on Friar's Street right next to the convent. Mayan specialty dishes served in a pleasant atmosphere. If you are planning a day trip to Valladolid while vacationing in the Riviera Maya, which we encourage you to do, have lunch at Taberna de los Frailes. Include in your Valladolid day trip, a visit to the nearby Ek Balam Ruins.
