Xcaret and Xel-Ha are two of the most popular parks in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Ideally, both places will be on your list. But if your time is limited, which one should you choose?
Mexico is one of our favorite destinations. From seeing underwater statues at Chankanaab to visiting ecoparks and snorkeling with sea turtles in Akumal, we’ve had some great adventures in this beautiful country. But not everything in Mexico is active–just see some of the top wineries to visit in Valle de Guadalupe.
The highlight of our entire trip to Mexico was a visit to Akumal bay for a snorkeling adventure to swim with green sea turtles in the wild. Akumal is a wonderful day in the sun and the sea, where the turtles are the stars of the show.
When’s the last time you soared above the treetops or swam in an underground river surrounded by million-year-old stalactites? At Xplor adventure park in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, these are just two of the exciting ways to spend the day.
In Mexico, we discovered one of the world’s most beautiful wine regions. Yes, you heard that right: Mexican wine. In the Valle de Guadalupe wineries, we found viticultural excellence.
The colors, sights, and frenetic energy of the festival came flying at us. There were people everywhere—some in traditional clothing searching for the face painting station, some making their way to the next cultural performance, some just looking for the nearest taco stand. We were swept up in it all.
Xenses park defies explanation. And that’s kind of the point.
Visiting a cenote is one of the most popular things to do on a trip to Mexico. These fresh water sinkholes are the perfect way to cool off after exploring the Mayan ruins or simply on a hot day. This is the Ruta de Los Cenotes (or the Cenotes Trail).
The Hotel B Cozumel is the perfect home away from home for a relaxing vacation. This is the place for scuba diving or simply to just be in the moment.
Before heading to Mexico, we knew we wanted to go scuba diving in Cozumel. But we had no idea that our trip would end with an extremely close encounter with sharks!
