    Playa del Carmen Things to Do

    So, I know what you may be thinking, I hit the century mark on countries and I go a little soft, perhaps a bit too trusting. However, rest assured, no unnecessary risks were taken. My sweet date and I walked down to a well-lit, crowded part of the beach in the heart of the city where several locals and tourists were gathered to simply get a...

  • Tulum Ruins

    Tulum Things to Do

    Tulum is probably best visited in the morning before all the tourist buses show up and before the scorching sun starts beating down on you since most of it is uncovered. It's hard to find official information about anything in the Yucatan but I believe it's open from 8am to 5pm and I'm sure it currently costs 59 pesos or $6USD as of December 2014....

  • Chankanaab

    Isla Cozumel Things to Do

    We arrived in Cozumel on a Monday and wanted to test out or dive gear before going diving on Tuesday. My parents had been to Chankanaab many years ago and don't recall paying anything to access the beach. After paying for a cab to get there, we discovered that it has been turned into an overpriced tourist trap. It was $16US per person to get in the...

  • Chichen Itza

    Cancún Things to Do

    It´s a couple of hours by car from Cancun, but I think that it's impossible to skip its visit. Chichen-Itza it's popular worldwide, and it would be silly not to visit it, being so close. So, have swim in the early morning (great!) visit Chichen-Itza, and have another late swim to receive the night (even better)

    Tulum Things to Do

    Heading south from the Temple of the Wind God, there is a small beach where the water looked quite inviting. If you are enjoying a leisurely day, bring along your swimsuit and go for a dip! I'm pretty sure access to the beach is free, since they are only charging $6USD to visit the ruins, security at the site doesn't seem all that high of a...

    Isla Cozumel Things to Do

    In the past three years I have become a Coz junky. Great Diving and Great People. I can highly recommend a trip to San Gervasio, but wear long sleeves, long pants, closed shoes, and most importantly take and use mosquito repellent. Chip Goodhart

  • Isla Mujeres

    Cancún Things to Do

    Isla Mujeres allowed two programs - one by day, mainly consisting in snorkeling or diving -, and the one that we made. We had to choose, snorkel was something that only some of us would do, and we had already done somewhere else, and that's why we choose the nightly program. However, I was told that the island is great for fish, so the program...

    This is an amazing cenote and well worth the cost. Our guide Julio did a great job keeping us safe and together. They provide everything you need .. just take bathing suit and cash to buy the pic's just in case you want them. It was around 70 US which seemed like a lot but we were prepared. We booked this excursion through our resort and find it...

    They have been there longer than us, so the survival of all the tourism keeps them alive today. I last went to one in 1988, for Chitzen Itza. It was great, and a few pics area shown from then. The Tulum is also one that seems to be worth a visit based on literature. It is right on the coastline, and the pictures show it to look really fabulous. WE...

    Rivalling with its neighbour Xcaret, this park is an absolute "must see". It doesn't have so many attractions as an amusement park, but it is gorgeous as a natural park. It is a breeding area for fish, and bathing in such a natural environment a fabulous experience. Only a few dozens kilometers far from town, it is easily reache by bus, and usually...

    I don't what the actual name of this structure is but I do know what makes it unique. Inside of the building is a mural that depicts a reference to a "Descending God", which is unusual for the Mayan's as they generally believed that their pagan God's stayed in the heavens. There isn't a specific explanation for what this mural actual means or the...

    It is not dangerous to visit the downtown Cancun, at the beginning of the strip. For families with kids, there is so much to do, they have small cars for $2 for 10 min for kids to ride in the park and many shops and restaurants. On weekend nights, they have good sales and the food there is good, at the stalls, I ate there even when I was pregnant...

    You can visit Cozumel either by signing up for a guided visit from Playa del Carmen or by taking the ferry and touring by yourself. The ferry takes about 30-35 minutes and cost 312 pesos round trip ($26 US) when we did it in December 2014. The cruise ships stop there a lot, there were at six on our last visit.

    We spent 2 nights in Cesiak in the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve and rose at 5am to welcome in the morning - "You can sleep when you're dead!". The wildlife at this hour is a joy to observe and the experience was almost holy - a truly incredible experience. I'd only recommend staying at the tent cabanas here if you're the kind of person who doesn't...

    This was our 5th time visiting the Money Bar, all we were looking for was a place to sit and read, some snorkeling and a bite to eat. You can use the lounge chairs and snorkel for free at the Dzul-Ha reef if you have your own equipment. Many of the boat tours come and anchor here for snorkeling so we swam out and snorkeled where they were, the...

    Cancún Things to Do

    The majority of beaches in Cancun are long narrow strips filled with almost as many people as there is sand. There were more cigarette butts per square foot than a truck stop in Texas! Even though the beaches are tilled every night by the resorts the sand is still filled with things other than sand and shells. Granted I'm sure the beaches at the...

    Tulum has a great set of ruins that you should definitely visit. However, just 45 minutes away on bus (1st class ADO) is another set of ruins that are amazing as well. I definitely recommend visiting the Coba ruins. While the Tulum ruins are set on a cliff right off the beaches of the Carribean, the Coba ruins are set right in the heart of the...

  • Playa Del Carmen

    Cancún Things to Do

    A day trip to Playa is a great break from the hotel, bar and shopping scene of Cancun. Playa is much smaller, without high rise hotels, and a much more laid back atmosphere. That's not to say it isn't commercialized. The town completely caters to the tourist industry. But it doesn't have the big US chain restaurants - rather a lot of smaller...

    Roughly by car it took 2.5 to 3hr from Playa del Carmen to Chichen Itza. This Mayan ruin is something else. My first impression for me was definitely a wow factor. We had a tour guide who was a Mayan himself. Listening to him the history and the details of each building was interesting. On the day it was hot luckily we had umbrella, hats and plenty...

There were people of all ages on this snorkel outing so I would...

    Cancún Things to Do

    I have traveled to the area several times in the last 25 years and this is my opinion. Chichen Itza is a one day trip, with perhaps a cenote on the way. There is a large one somewhere between the ruins and Valladolid which is surrounded by a park and concession stand. These ruins are magnificent and one should not rush through them. Tulum is not...
