XPU-HA BEACH and Serenity Beach Club - in the Riviera Maya

If you are looking for a beach option other than Playa del Carmen, then plan a day at the Xpu-Ha beach, with the Serenity Beach club. This beach is between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, and it’s very easy to get there.  Just take Hwy 307 headed toward Tulum and ask the driver to drop you off at Xpu Ha beach.

Carlos' n Charlie's Restaurant - Cancun, Mexico

Carlos’ n Charlie’s is a casual, fun and friendly restaurant, with the ambiance for all to enjoy.  Although they do not have outdoor seating, we were able to sit at the open window table so that we could enjoy our meal while taking in all the sights and sounds of Mexico.

Ventura Park – Amusement and Water Park in Cancun, Mexico

Ventura Park – Amusement and Water Park in Cancun, Mexico is fun for everyone. Although the park is small, it is BIG on fun.  Their primary focus is on water features with water slides and wave pools. You can also rent their large and colorful inner tubes to make your water adventures even more fun.

But if you are not into water…don’t worry, Ventura Park has got you covered.  There are a few rides, go-karts, ziplines, virtual attractions, restaurants, bars, and a gift shop.

Playground for Grown-Ups - Wheelie Trails ATV Jungle Adventure - Playa del Carmen, Mexico

When I was a kid, I loved playing outdoors and having fun.  With the warm sun on my face and not a care in the world…it was all about the laughter and freedom. 

So as an adult, I am always my happiest when I can play outside, laugh and have fun.  And that’s exactly the experience we had when my husband and I went on an ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) tour with Wheelie Trails ATV Jungle Adventure in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  In fact, before we could even finish our tour, we were already making plans to go again.  But this time, forget about sharing and taking turns driving, we each want to drive our own ATV.

Sam’s Club Optical Services – Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Use it or Lose it. It’s that time of year where our health spending account has a balance. If the balance is not used by a certain date, you lose it.  We decided to use it and review a second optical service here in Mexico.

Owners, renters, guests and visitors. I am pleased to announce that Puerto Aventuras has a full-time fruit and vegetable store.  We no longer have to only rely on or wait for the Wednesday and Saturday local Farmer’s Market, or cross Hwy 307 to buy produce at Chedraui.
