Xcaret eco-archaeological Park, in Riviera Maya near Cancun, Mexico, visitors can experience Mexican traditions, cultures, flora, and fauna. Explore a Mayan village, float along Paradise River, browse the gift shops at the main plaza, visit the Chapel of Guadalupe, a Mexican Cemetery, St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, House of Whispers, or Hacienda Henequenera during a visit to Xcaret.
Throughout the park are clearly marked photo locations with bracelet scanners. Nearing the end of our day, we turn in our bracelets and have an opportunity to purchase the photos taken throughout the day. We select a couple of our favorites to take home as souvenirs.
As the sun beings to set, we end our experience at Xcaret with the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular Show. Past and present Mexico, Mayan culture, and legends are illustrated through colorful dances, lights, elaborate costumes, and performances.

My fiancé, Mitch, and I have been traveling together over four years. Living and working full time in Pittsburgh, PA, we travel as much as our vacation days and finances allow. Each adventure is packed with activities, tours, and experiences to maximize our time. As craft beer lovers, we always try to fit in a visit to a local brewery.
In Tokyo, we laughed every time we saw someone talking on their large, animated phone case. We had to buy one. Having an obsolete IPhone 5, the selection was limited. We purchased Gingy off a neglected rack in Shinjuku, Tokyo and The Traveling Gingerbread was born. You can purchase your own adorable gingerbread friend here!
The Traveling Gingerbread is an entertaining account of our travels, fun facts, and tips we learned along the way.
