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.

Photo Challenge of the Week: Oops!


Two weeks ago I was at “Love Mexico” conference for travel agent and wedding planners. We were learning about Mexico as an option for honeymoon and a wedding destination. As a travel agent I decided to specialize in Romance travel (even thou that is not the only thing I work on, I can help with ALL kind of travel).

This picture above I took it at our last night farewell party. The decor of the room was so beautiful and romantic.

There were chandeliers all over the room, so I want it to have a nice picture of the chandelier and that’s when it happened. My oops moment, looks like there was some lights behind that particular chandelier but it looks like I didn’t notice until later…
