The Travel Gallery
Start 2022 by spending a morning in Puerto Morelos, the atmospheric fishing village that is the gateway to the Riviera Maya. Find a palapa for some beach time or go snorkeling along the offshore reef. Grab a coffee and ice cream in the main square or snack on fresh seafood along the waterfront. If you have run out of beach books, browse the shelves at Alma Libre bookstore, you are always sure to find something to read.
For a fun day of jungle adventures with the family, visit Selvatica or one of the cenote parks in the forest along the Ruta de los Cenotes.
Spend the day on the beach at Akumal in the Riviera Maya. This sheltered, palm-lined bay is a family favorite for swimming and snorkeling. You may even spot one of the turtles that give the bay its Maya name “place of the turtles.”
Taking in the breathtaking views of the Caribbean from this ancient clifftop city is the perfect way to start the year. Breathe deeply, listen to the breeze and the cries of the birds and savor the moment.
For a day away from the crowds, sign up for a nature trip to Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. You’ll follow a nature trail through the jungle in Muyil archaeological site and then board a boat for a ride through the wetlands and mangrove forest. Keep a look out for herons, ibis, American storks, kingfishers and crocodiles.
