This made me more interested in finding out about other cultures in different countries and what they had to offer.

I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to various destinations such as; numerous European Beach and city holidays, Dubai, Egypt, Disney Paris, Disneyland Florida, New York, and Mexico. I have also done Villa Holidays and have been on and have great knowledge on cruises.

Magical Mexico

16 August 2021

I visited Mexico for 11 nights Just before Christmas in 2016. It was a very funny feeling with Christmas music and decorations up, but we were in 30°C heat! The hotel we stayed at was the RIU Yucatan, in Playacar, Riviera Maya. I couldn’t fault the hotel. The rooms were bright and spacious. You had your own optics bar filled with Rum, Vodka, Tequila and Whisky. The fridge was constantly filled with different types of soft drinks. My Balcony overlooked the trees where you would see and hear the monkeys playing around, which was fun to watch at any time of day! The beach was a beautiful white sand beach, and crystal-clear waters with all sorts of colourful fish swimming about. Absolute paradise. It was always kept clean, and you could always find sunbeds. The same with the pool areas there were plenty of sunbeds no need to wake up at 6am to reserve one! My favourite pool was the one which had the pool bar in it so you could just swim up to the bar to get your next drink never needing to get out. The restaurants were amazing I especially loved the Steakhouse and the Mexican Restaurant for dinner. But equally the buffet restaurant was so full of choice and was not repetitive, there was always something different in there every day and night. I did a few excursions while I was out there, and I really recommend the following two: XPLOR -Here you get to drive through the jungle in 4x4 vehicles, Fly high above the jungles on the highest zip-lines in Riviera Maya. My favourite was swimming underground through 65-million-year-old stalactite rivers. Or you can also Raft through the underground rivers with hand paddles! The ticket included unlimited snacks and soft drinks, and lunch at the buffet restaurant where you can go as many times as you want! *Top tip which is well worth it is to pay for the photos so you don’t have to carry your phones/cameras around. There are cameras everywhere and will take pictures of you through the day. Then at the end of the day you get receipt and can log in online and download all your pictures. XCARET – This is an eco-archaeological nature park with a lot of Mexican Culture! Here it has more than 50 natural and cultural attractions. Here you can again swim in underground rivers, visit the Aviary, coral reef aquarium, and butterfly pavilion just to name a few. This place is on the beach so you can scuba dive and have a snorkelling tour here. You can also swim with Dolphins, Sharks and Sting Rays too! If you fancy a day out shopping then I couldn’t recommend Playa Del Carmen’s 5th Avenue highly enough. You have everything you could want there. Bars, restaurants, cafés, Shopping centres with branded shops, and an abundance of Market stalls. There is always something going on in the evenings there if you fancy a change from the Hotel’s entertainment. I will definitely return to Mexico again one day and do it all over again! It was such a wonderful place, and all the locals were so friendly. So, if you need inspiration for your next trip don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to help!
