Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

 

On my new adventure as a Travel Agent I always have to come up with new ideas of how to promote my business. Last week TravelmyStories participated on a wedding show, looking for brides in need of help with their honeymoon. Every time we set up a table like this, we have to be optimistic that we will find somebody that will need our services. That our business will make somebody happy and less stressful with their new life preparations.

 

 

We are optimistic that we can help create memories, moments and travel stories that will last forever.

My “Aventuras Maya” Adventure

 

I can’t believe it’s been a month since my time in Cancun, and I haven’t write anything about my “Aventuras Maya’s” adventure… It has been a busy past few weeks with all the Christmas presentation rehearsals, working my two jobs, family and more. Now after a week after the new year started I am ready to continue with my goals and my travel stories.

 

On Our last day in Cancun we had the opportunity to experience one of the many things that the Riviera Maya have to offer. Of the many options they gave us I choose “Aventuras Maya” where we were going to snorkel in three different sites and zip-line.

The first thing we did in our adventure day was going to a cavern Cenote to have our first swim in cold, clear, blue waters.

Our second part of our adventure was in an open Cenote where we did zip-line to the water, we has a “fish pedicure” and snorkel.

We left this area, got in the bus and went to an ocean inlet (Caleta). Here we swam and snorkel through the cold fresh and salty waters. There is a point where the fresh water combines with the salt water and under the water you see a blurry effect. Also in this area we saw more fishes for the same reason, more salt water.

For some reason it was harder for me to get in this water, I felt it even colder than the one in the close cenote. After swimming for a bit and going closer to the ocean I start feeling warm water under and cold on top. Of course also while moving and exercising you don’t feel cold at all. This swim was really a good exercise because when we were coming back to our start point we were swimming against the current, so much more effort in our swimming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we went to another park where we had lunch. Rest for a little bit while light rain refresh us.

We were ready for our last part of the adventure…zip-line!

 

 

 

Check my video, here you will see the zip-line ride.

It was my first time doing zip-line. I had so much fun! If you do it some day let me tell you, that the hardest part is going up the stairs :b

Here are some more pics of another cenote.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoy my adventure! You can have all these adventure as well and have your own travel stories. Aventuras Maya’s offer other activities too, like rappelling, visit to the ruins of Tulum, swim with turtles, swim with dolphins, drive ATV’s and more. You can combine and customize your experience.

Can you see yourself having an adventure like this? Contact me for more information.

Weekly Photo Challenge of the Week: Gathering

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the gathering of delicious treats for the gathering of travel agents and wedding planners. 🙂

Almost three weeks ago I was in Cancun Mexico for a conference for travel agents and wedding planners. “Love Mexico” focus on promoting Mexico as a Wedding Destination and honeymoon place. We had a fantastic time! Specially when they treat us so nicely. As you can see above all the delicious treats they have so beautifully display for us. This was on the Royalton Luxury Resort, where they had a masquerade party for us. The pictures above were the desserts.

 

These pictures can give you an idea the kind of wedding reception you can have. Is too bad I didn’t take pictures of the dinner. Oh my God it was so heavenly delicious!

Until then,

Beach Sandals Ocho Rios in Jamaica

 

 

At Beach Sandals you will immediately notice that is a family oriented hotel, NOT only for adults like Sandals Ochi and Royal Plantation. Sesame Street is the first thing you will see when you get in the front entrance of the resort. So you can enjoy your adults activities while your kids are going to have fun and they will be well taking care of.

 

 

 

The beach is as beautiful and inviting as the other Sandals resorts. Also your kids can enjoy the beach with supervision while you do your own things. That is peace of mind!

 

 

 

Now… What about the pool? Come let’s take a look!

Sandals Royal Plantation in Jamaica

We were able to visit Royal Plantation for few hours on our visit to Jamaica. This resort is smaller with a more intimate setting. All the rooms are ocean view and are butler suites. It’s just beautiful. Another amazing thing is that you can enjoy all the dinner options of Sandals Ochi Rios! Here are some insights of the property.
