I get asked a lot of what would I do if I could do ANYTHING in the world while in the Riviera Maya. Now, being a mom of three VERY active boys, my first response is sitting on a beach under a palpa, with a good book, and a wonderful fruity drink forgetting the time, and listening to some good music is about my speed. However, if you know me, as much as I LOVE to do that I also want to go out and explore and try something new. So, after a good day of my favorite thing of doing nothing and being waited on, these are the things that I would do while in the Riviera Maya.
3:) Day excursion to the Chichen Itza. Mark and I went there on our honeymoon. I have to admit it was AH-Mazing!!! This is the second most visited archaeological site of Mexico today. And the Kukulkan Pyramid, or “El Castillo” (the castle), is the highlight of Chichen Itza, and was selected as one of the new seven wonders of the world in 2007. In addition to the pyramid there are many other archaeological sites to visit at Chichen Itza all representing traces of the beautiful Mayan Culture.
2:) Taking a Dolphin Experience, whether it’s a swim, foot push or just meeting up and close with a dolphin, it’s one of those once in a lifetime things that was a definite must do. Mark and I enjoyed our dolphin experience, it was a busy day, between the sit down demonstration and learning about what you are going to experience, to getting fitted for your life vest and then actually getting to the area where you get into the water with the dolphins. I have to admit that they are truly a gift of nature. I can’t wait to take my boys someday to experience a dolphin interaction.
1:) Sunset Cocktail Cruise. What a way to end a busy day..enjoying the sunset and sipping on a cocktail while sailing with your sweetie. I do have to admit, there’s something romantic about a cocktail cruise. And while in the Riviera Maya they have a wonderful Catamaran Sunset Cocktail Cruise. And maybe even catching a couple of snuggles and kisses too.
It’s best to make sure that you schedule excursions before you leave so that you are not disappointed if your excursion is sold out. Another benefit of planning them ahead of time with your travel agent is that we use trusted partners to make sure that you have the best time possible. We are always here to be your travel advocate.
