The Mayan Magic of Mexico and Me

Recently I was asked the very difficult question, “What was your most memorable trip?”

Too difficult to select just one, my answer is often, “well, it depends,” and then I rattle of a few destinations.

But even with a long list of adventures worthy of a video, I needed to give Wanderfly one destination and one adventure. I decided to select a country that truly captured my heart. I selected Mexico.

I believe the real danger of Mexico is falling in love with the country and I have. Yet a trip can’t just be to Mexico, it is a large diverse country and offers many types of experiences for the visitor. I needed to select one trip. A memorable trip.

The Riviera Maya

Recently I have taken interest in the Mayan culture. I even have worked with a Mayan teacher and received native healing session and also learned the calendar. You’ll be happy to know the world is not ending in 2012.  The culture and calendar continue to fascinate.

The trip included three main stops with numerous excursions. I visited the ancient ruins of Coba and Chichen Itza, swam in many of the magical and mysterious Mayan sink holes known as Cenotes, rested on the beaches of tranquil Tulum and also enjoyed the fiesta filled Playa del Carmen.

Yes, truly a memorable trip. Enjoy.

I’d also like to thank RivieraMaya, Hacienda Tres Rios, Xichen, AllTournative, Casa de Miel, and Hotel Posada Sian Ka’an for providing passage, access, and guidance. They all helped make the trip very special.

    Enjoyed this post! I’ve been to Mexico several times (have visited DF, Oaxaca, San Cristóbal, etc.), but have not made it to the Riviera Maya…yet. Perhaps, now that I’ve seen your video, I’ll go. It looks lovely!

    It is hard not to fall in love with the Riviera Maya from the beach to the jungles, there is something about being in the Caribbean sea and surrounded by jungle, did you try snorkeling when u were here? we went for snorkeling trip with Cancun Snorkeling Adventures and had the time of our lives… is a must do
