Our Special Readings
5 reasons to explore Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen is home to some of Mexico’s most exotic locales, with palm trees dotting miles of beaches, lush jungles and ancient Mayan ruins all waiting to be explored. For the VIP traveler looking for a little adventure, Playa del Carmen has many thrilling options available. Here are five ways to get the white-glove treatment while participating in exciting experiences:
Swim With Whale Sharks
Though whale sharks are the largest creatures in the animal kingdom (they have mouths that measure about 1,5 mt wide!), they are notably placid and only eat plankton. Their gentle demeanor makes them perfect companions to swim with, even allowing some divers to catch a ride on top of them. Booking a private snorkeling tour will take you on a fully catered trip out to Isla Mujeres, where you’ll be introduced to a local marine biologist and a personal guide.
Visit the Sian Ka’an Natural Reserve
Sian Ka’an is a biosphere nature reserve located about an hour south of Playa del Carmen. Meaning “Origin of the Sky” in the Mayan language, the reserve was created in 1986 to support conservation projects regarding local ecosystems and sustainability. Visitors to Sian Ka’an are given unrivaled views of the Caribbean coast, as well as a view of Mexican wildlife such as crocodiles, dolphins, and sea turtles. The VIP tour of this UNESCO World Heritage site includes a snorkeling session in the barrier reef, followed by a gourmet seafood lunch and complimentary bottle of Champagne.
10 experiences to enjoy the Riviera Maya
It is no secret that the Yucatan Peninsula and especially the Riviera Maya has become the largest destination in Mexico. Attracted by the endless white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea tourists are becoming more and more numerous each year. Some are attracted by the Mayan ruins and others of ecotourism that can be practiced in this area of the South of the country. But here are our 10 unforgettable experiences that we recommend to those who plan to spend a holiday on the Riviera Maya.
Americans usually spend the period of spring break on the beaches and in the clubs of Cancun. For Europeans it is not the favorite destination, since it is very far from the idea of a Caribbean destination, with its waterfront skyscrapers and its noisy disco-bars full of drunken youngsters. This does not mean that the sea is spectacular and that the beaches are very long and wonderful. One reason to make a stop in Cancun is for the cultural activities that are emerging in recent years and which are attracting even new tourists.
The Maya knew a lot about landscapes and it is right on the seashore of Tulum that in the XIII century they built one of the most spectacular buildings, now in ruins, that can be visited in Mexico.
Just half an hour’s boat ride from Cancun in the open sea you can meet Isla Mujeres, a corner of peace and relaxation away from the noise of the city. It is worth visiting the turtle breeding, a sanctuary that annually hosts up to 60.000 specimens. A dip in these turquoise waters is incredible.
