Today, I wanted to write a little blog about my visit to Xcaret Beach. It isn’t like an official type of place. Rather, it is the beach area of the Xcaret park. You first run into a place filled with sands and chairs. This isn’t the official beach area per say. It is just a cool place to hang out. You can take photographs in the overgrown chair and hammocks. There is also a cool statue of two flamingos forming a cute little heart shape. From this area, you get a cool view of the ocean beyond.   If you...

Today, I wanted to write about my visit to Xcaret. More specifically, I wanted to focus on my impression of the Maya Cemetery. It is odd to treat a cemetery as a tourist destination. Regardless, there you have it. I didn’t linger much in the place.   It had a creepy vibe about it. Then again, most cemeteries are rather creepy, and possibly haunted. I first visited this cemetery a few years ago. It was before the pandemic. There were a lot fewer graves. This time it seemed a little more crowded.   At night, the place looked extra spooky....

Today, I wanted to make a foodie bog about the Rodizio. The Rodizio is a restaurant inside the Barcelo Maya Palace. It does both steak and pasta, just like it says in the sign. Of course, it isn’t fair to summarize the experience in that single sentence. So, I am going to narrate the entire dining experience.   This should give you a general idea as to what to expect of your visit. The first thing we had to do was get a reservation. All the fancy restaurants in the Barcelo Resort are by reservations. We chose to dine on...

Today, I wanted to write a blog about some of the nice décor I saw in the Barcelo Maya Palace. When one talks about a resort, it is important to talk about the ambience. It depends on what you consider important.   As for me, I like to look at random decorations and blog about them. The first thing I wanted to talk about are these cute figurines. They are ceramics that are drawn over. Most of them feature faces of maidens in different outfits.   It has quite the peculiar cartoonish style that is quite charming. In the gift...
