  • 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)

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Cancún Restaurants

    Our taxi drops us just about 2 feet from the entrance to La Parilla in Cancun. Talk about curbside service. Enter into an open air borderline outdoor restaurant, as the walls are not exactly walls but shaped and curled cut outs of wrought iron. It was late for lunch, about 3 pm, but the restaurant was still pretty full. Our friendly waiter took our...

    5th Ave day or night is where the action, it is the main area of tourist activity. It’s about five minutes walk from our resort, which is very convenience for us. The long pedestrian of 5th Ave can be very crowded. You’ll find bars, restaurants, shops, tattoo parlor, gift shops, and ADO Bus Station. While strolling along the ave you can be...

    Playa del Carmen Restaurants

    As other post have mentioned it is truly a full, non-claustrophobic cave. From the street it doesn't look like much but as you enter there was a statue-like man dressed in full traditional costume. He startled my 13 year old but she just laughed it off. As you walk down the stairs you notice that it is muggy but not uncomfortable at all. We just...

    Tulum Things to Do

    Does not take long to explore and easily combined with other excursions in the area. I was in and out within an hour. I saw everything but I am not one to stand and gaze so I am sure that is why it was a short stay for me. This visit, (Oct.2013) the beach was roped off and no was one allowed to get close.

    Tulum Restaurants

    The main street of Tulum is simply teeming with different Restaurants. Sadly many of them are overpriced and generic and seem to pander to tourist expectations of high prices. My expectations of Mexican restaurants is that the food is authentic and the price is low. Don Cafeto's is the only restaurant in Tulum that fits the bill. I judge a good...

    Isla Cozumel Warnings and Dangers

    Items were taken while we were in the water snorkeling. Either a couple on the trip or the captain took them. Cozumel Trip Excursions was the company we booked with but they also were other company names but changed them due to bad reviews. We had a beautiful day but the weather changed and we had a 45 minute ride back in a terrible storm. The crew...

    DO NOT BUY FROM THE SILVER MINE JEWELERS on Isla Mujeres, located directly across from the main ferry dock. We dealt with Martin, the owner who bottom line, lied outright to us; we bought a "sapphire" ring for $350 US. I asked the tour operator we were with on a catamaran snorkeling tour if we could trust the Silver Mine Jewelry store. We were told...

  • Coba & Tulum

    Puerto Aventuras Things to Do

    You can do either place as a half day excursion or both in one day. We did Coba first in the morning. Coba is only suitable for those with reasonable mobility as a long walk through the Forrest and around the ancient Mayan ruins takes it out of you. It's also very humid and hot despite for the best part being in the shade from the trees. You get a...

    Puerto Aventuras Nightlife

    Coco Bongos is the most amazing night out ever. I stayed at the catalonia Riviera Maya resort and it cost about £90-100 for 2 of us to get VIP tickets to go to Coco Bongos and we recommend the VIP as the non VIP tickets save you about £15 each but you'll be crambed in the downstairs and be paying for drinks and queing etc. With VIP you get picked...

    Very convenient to the entrance of Akumal Beach. They have outdoor seating around a bar style counter.

Nice selection but I was in a rush and just ordered some chicken tacos.The food came out very fast. It also tasted...

San Miguel de Cozumel

    San Miguel de Cozumel Favorites

    When we first went to Cozumel to dive in 1998, there was a cruise ship dock but it was the pier that was south of town. We would dive and then come home and walk to a restaurant for dinner. One of the places we would walk to was out along the waterfront, and we would see this lighthouse. At that time it was an active lighthouse. In 2007, we came by...

Everything in this store is made of bamboo. It is very soft and comfortable - cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I can testify that it is soft I...

There's nothing to see, and some criterious openings in the way provide light enough to soften the...
