My Cage Diving Adventure with Islander Charters Begins

Cage Diving with Islander Charters

Tomorrow, I will embark on a cage diving adventure with Islander Charters. I’ve always been adventurous but marine life has been my greatest fear. Even small, harmless fish have made me nervous about being in the water. I’ve come a long way since my days of running from minnows. I’ve had encounters with dolphins, beluga whales, whale sharks, Galapagos sharks, manta rays, sting rays, seals, and reef sharks but nothing has compared to this. I’m about to face my fears head on.  Continue reading

Redeeming Myself By Swimming With Whale Sharks

My journey with the gentle giants ended in darkness, cut short by my fear and denial. One of the activities offered from Grand Residences Riviera Cancun is swimming with whale sharks in the ocean and I jumped at the opportunity to redeem myself after my epic fail with whale sharks the last time.

Have you tried them all? Which ones are on your list?  Continue reading

My Favorite All-Inclusive Hotel – Hard Rock Riviera Maya

Beach Hard Rock Riviera Maya

After returning from an ocean view suite at Hard Rock Riviera Maya, I realized that Hard Rock properties are my favorite all-inclusive hotels. It’s simple; they have the best, most friendly service, modern, creative rooms, kick-ass entertainment and amenities, and better dining options than most cities. I thought it was just Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta that I loved, but Hard Rock Riviera Maya is equally impressive. From the time you drive through the gates, you are a rock star! Other all-inclusive hotels should use Hard Rock as a benchmark for hospitality. Continue reading

I Want to Drink All Day & Party All Night

Hard Rock Band at Heaven

Hard Rock Riviera Maya is one big party, especially in the adults only section. This morning, on my way to the pool, I grabbed two Pina Coladas; not to sound like the song, just because I love Pina Coladas and two was all I could carry. And I had a great idea! Continue reading
