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.

Until then,

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,

I Am Part Of Their Travel Stories

In my new journey as a Travel Consultant and a new homeowner as well, I haven‘t had the time to travel this year. The majority of my time I been training and learning with the hope that becoming an expert will help me be a better travel counselor. Finally in the last few months I was able to work with some people who were needing my services (customers :D).

I notice that one of the most difficult part of this job is not the learning process. The most difficult part is finding customers that want the help of an expert. Customers that are tired of searching on their own, through the thousands of options that the web can give you for a “perfect vacation”. We know that there are customers like that are out there somewhere,we travel agents just have to find them. Unfotunatly people have forgotten the advantage of working with a travel counselor. We have access to much more options and specific information depending of what the individual needs.

Just to mention a few…
During this process I find out that helping other people with their travel planning is very exciting. It is so much thrill as when I am planning my own. It’s amazing to think that I am part of their travel stories. So, I am not only writing my own travel stories now, but others too! It’s been like a box of chocolate, like a puzzle, like an adventure for me to work on my customers vacations. I feel like wanting to pack my bags and leave with them too!

Now I am in the stage of waiting that they come back from their vacation to enjoy the feed back of their stories. Who knows, they might allow me to share part of their travel stories here on my blog!

As for me…right now this week I will be taking more trainings and ships inspections through my host agency. That means this week is TPI Extravaganza! I will be sharing my experiences soon. Next month I will be going to Jamaica(yeiiii!). I will be visiting Sandals Ochi Rios for 4 nights! Believe me, I will be telling you all about how worth is traveling to this paradise dream place. (I have a feeling it is 100% worth it :D)



On the first week of December I will be going to Cancun, we’ll stay at the Moon Palace Hotel. On this trip I will be learning more about Mexico as a wedding destination.

So I will be having some travel stories of my own after all. If you are in need of a travel counselor to help you create your own travel stories, don’t forget that I will be more than happy to help you create beautiful memories.

Until then…
