Rain, rain go away. Come again another day…after our Riviera Maya vacation.  Travelers agree, rain is a top buzz kill while on a beach vacation.  On the other hand, it could be just what you need.  A rainy vacation day forces us to slow down and actually rest our bodies.

Visit at CrocoCun

We were invited by our friends at Cancun Valet www.cancunvalet.com, the official transfer service for Loco Gringo, to join them on a tour of some of their favorite places in Cancun.  This made us think about how little time most Akumalians actually spent in Cancun and decided it would be fun to see more of the city, something other than the inside of the airport and Cost Co.
