It's been more than 20 days since we returned from what they were going to be our desired vacation in Riviera Maya. Finally we get a balance between small "getaways" and the relaxation of the Grand Palladium, but the final feeling we have is that we still needed one more day. The day-to-day routine has gotten over again and it seems that everything had happened too quickly.

What has no doubt is that this area of ​​the planet represents that place that meets all the expectations that people need when we consider that total disconnection, especially head, or that need for rest. Now yes, it comesour usual "THE DAY AFTER: Conclusions" of our small vacation, hoping it will be useful for future travelers, while we prepare new adventures.

THANKS:

Our special thanks, as always, toElijah Badenes, The one that makes this web is always online and working. Special thanks to all of you who have written, to those who have read us, to family, to friends and to those who have made this vacation what we were looking for (especially Rachel from Rías Altas already Armando and Jesus, the "modern taxi drivers").

!! UP TO THE NEXT TRIP !!


Javi, Paula, Silvi and Isaac, from Riviera Maya (Mexico)

WE DIDN'T LIKE:

- The Isla Mujeres excursion. Tourist catamaran totally expendable.
- The Grand Palladium train, service, frequencies and intervals to improve.
- The crowded and touristy Paradise Beach (having two truly authentic ones).
- He ugly shark-cat show "dead" in Isla Mujeres.
- What the second largest reef in the world is so deteriorated and with so little marine life After 17 years, especially the Cozumel area.
- He Air Europa delay on the way back, and its ineptitude with boarding in Cancun.

PICHÍ-PICHÁ:

- The Theme restaurants from the Grand Palladium, a bit of everything.
- The speed of the locals, something kamikaces sometimes.
- The amount of mosquitoes of the area, although without being annoying.
- The wholesalers and local agencies and its policy of criticizing each other. For us none is our option, the best public VAN, TAXI or CAR RENTAL. Freedom and flexibility
- Go "only" 15 days ... We need 3 more months!

WE LOVED IT:

- Carmen beach, to spend an afternoon and hire the excursions we want
- Xelha, an ecological park to spend a day in contact with nature.
- See the birth of turtles in Tulum and to have them a few seconds in our hands.
- The Caribbean Beaches of Pescadores and Santa Fé, next to Tulum.
- He sea ​​trip in Tulum and snorkell On the reef, a beautiful experience.
- The Palladium night shows and !! the casino !! where we won a bottle of tequila
- He Tequila. The good (Don Julio), the least good, the Boom Boom, the lemon and salt…
- The fruit and vegetables. The Gazpachos were spectacular !!
- The North Beach of Isla Mujeres that we stepped on the Whale Shark excursion…! the best !!
- All cocktails ... especially !! THE PINEAPPLE COLADA! (in Spain we never tried an equal one) -

ESSENTIAL / ONCE IN LIFE:

GREAT PALLADIUM KANTENAH

Everything not named in the previous sections
Of the best stays we've been to
The wet pool bar, the beach, the colors ...

SWIMMING WITH DOLPHINS

An unrepeatable experience

Really endearing animals


MAYAN RUINS AND DRESSES

Either in VAN or TAXI with Armando and Jesus ...
… Tulum, the Mayan port to the Caribbean

… Chichen Itza, the nerve center full of mysteries
… Ek Balam, the great unknown


THE CENOTES

True wonders of nature
By its impression, the one of Ik-Kil is majestic
For its authenticity, the Great Cenote is worth it
The entire peninsula is interconnected ...
… Of underground channels that bloom in cenotes


THE WHALE SHARK EXPERIENCE

The possibility of swimming with the fish ...
... largest and most picturesque in the world !!
They are harmless, but their 12 meters impress

AN UNBEATABLE COMPANY

Our first adventure with Javi and Silvi ...

And moments, already in our album of memories
But especially, the complicity of the four
