Posted January 28, 2013 by Kay Walten in Enviroment,Mexico Vacation Tips,Riviera Maya Destinations

Riviera maya travel tips take the collectivo

The days of chicken buses and hitch hiking are gone along the coast, though you will still see hitch hikers on the beach road in Tulum getting rides into town. Hello fancy air conditioned vans and big massive buses with television, movies, and in some cases on bus beverage service. Public transportation rocks for those quick trips, or even not so quick trips making the entire Yucatan easy to get around and open for all to see. We currently are a one car family and if I am going to Merida or...

Riviera Maya vacation tip – biodegradable suncreen

Posted January 15, 2013 by Kay Walten in Enviroment,Mexico Vacation Tips

find a biodegradable sunscreen for your Riviera maya vacation - locogringos vacation tip

Who doesn't remember the Coppertone kid and the marketing that got us all thinking about and using sunscreen. Back then it was for a better tan, now sunscreen is for protection. The beach disguises the strength of the Caribbean sun that we all love so much, mix that in with some water sports, snorkeling or sand castle building and you need some great protection! What many vacationers forget about is the need to protect the ocean, 73% of our planet from the oils used in may off the shelf...

Are You on an Illegal Tour?

Posted June 7, 2011 by Kay Walten in Enviroment,Riviera Maya Activities,Riviera Maya Destinations

Akumal Bay Turtles, Akumal Mexico - Loco Gringo

One of the biggest threats to the preservation and protection of Akumal Bay and its precious inhabitants is illegal touring.  Tour guides not authorized to operate in the bay routinely bring large groups to Akumal from other cities such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen.  The unethical and illegal practices of these guides endanger not only the sea life but their clients as well.
