Paddleboarding in the Riviera Maya

In the spirit of trying something that I have never done before, I decided on an activity that has intrigued me for months…Stand Up Paddleboarding.  After all, I like to consider myself somewhat adventurous but am not very athletic, thus some of the newer sports and trends are just not for me.  So when our friends at Extreme Control told me about their new Paddleboarding Tours, I jumped at the chance to experience this new sport for myself. On Sunday we gathered at Casa Cenote to begin...

The darker patches in the water show where there are clusters or group of coral. Coral is where the fish and animals love to hang out. Coral clusters are like a playground and food court for the fish and animals that live in the sea. If you are located on a patch of beach that is just crystal clear water, white sand and no coral patches, no fear, the Mesoamerican reef...

It had been years since I last attended a live baseball game.  As a kid, the great American past time was a family ritual.  We headed to the ballpark, piled into the bleachers with our roasted peanuts and cotton candy, and sang along to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"... last Friday night, the lyrics were sung in Spanish. The Tigers http://www.tigresqr.com/2011/ are Quintana Roo's baseball team and they have made Cancun their home.  The Tigers are also a winning team.  Last Friday, they...
