The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and it’s time to start planning your usual agenda and preparing for it. This is a joyous time of the year, and most North Americans will be spending Christmas and New Year’s Eve indoors. This is not to say that cold weather and snow doesn’t enhance the season’s ambiance, but have you ever thought about mixing it up every once in a while? Maybe, adding a new chapter to your book of memories?
Celebrating Christmas and New Year’s Eve in the Riviera Maya could bring all new life experiences. Instead of turning up the heat and wrapping yourself in blankets or layers of clothing, you can slip on your favorite shorts, t-shirt, and flip flops! Start the day off by opening up the windows and separating the curtains. Let the morning’s warm sunshine and the Caribbean Sea breeze flow freely throughout the home. Enjoy a fresh cup of java or tea while relaxing on your private deck.
The Christmas Spirit is Everywhere!
You can begin your holiday getaway by having breakfast at a quaint-curbside café on a quiet side street. Enjoy tropical birds singing their morning cheer from the canopying trees. If you have any last-minute Christmas shopping to do, spend the day touring the local boutiques, specialty stores, and a variety of malls. From the small fishing village of Puerto Morelos to Tulum’s downtown, all the stores are dressed in the Christmas spirit. There are plenty of deals to be had on just about everything!
When the time comes to think about having lunch, there are so many options to choose from. Select from local restaurants that serve authentic family recipes to exotic cuisines from neighboring countries. Also, several open-air markets or street-side carts will grill your favorite meat or fish and wrap it in homemade tortillas. You can easily add a refreshing margarita or ice-cold beer to celebrate this special occasion. Grab your favorite beverage, and take the opportunity to explore your community’s town center.
Moreover, ff you are staying in Puerto Morelos, sit back and look out over the turquoise water and watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch. If spending time in Playa del Carmen, walk down Fifth Avenue. This pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare is lined with a variety of stores, eateries, and street entertainment. Puerto Aventura’s town center offers a beautiful harbor filled with dolphins, sea lions, and manatees. The laidback town of Tulum’s Pueblo (downtown) celebrates true Mexican fashion. Spend time wandering around its unique stores; family-owned eateries and cantinas. All of these towns celebrate with festive Christmas décor everywhere you look.
