Ex­pe­ri­ence Heaven

- Riviera Maya Style!

One of the best things to hap­pen to a group of ten friends va­ca­tion­ing to­gether was to find out about char­ter­ing a pri­vate yacht for the day. Lucky for us, a lo­cal told us about Riviera Elite, a group that char­ters yacht tours out of Puerto Aventuras, just 20 min­utes south of Playa del Car­men. Boy did we score!

We took the “El Cielo” (Heaven) Tour to the south­ern part of Cozumel Is­land. El Cielo is the most amaz­ing and heav­enly place and we wouldn’t have seen it if we didn’t jump on this tour. It is a se­cluded beach area (with no sea­weed!) where you can wade in waist-deep, turquoise wa­ter with a cock­tail in hand or go snor­kel­ing or swimming. Most of us just floated around in awe, en­joy­ing the most beau­ti­ful wa­ter and view ever!

Dur­ing this time the chef’s on­board whip­ping up de­li­cious mar­gar­i­tas and pre­par­ing freshly made ce­viche with the mahi mahi we caught along the way. Yep, you can fish on the tour too and what you catch could be your lunch! The crew is awe­some by the way, very at­ten­tive and pro­fes­sional and al­ways mak­ing sure you’re hav­ing a good time.

Af­ter our dip in the wa­ter (and dip­ping into the open bar!) for a few hours, the cap­tain lit up the on­board grill and started pre­par­ing our cheese­burg­ers. As a guest, you just re­lax, en­joy cock­tails and the mes­mer­iz­ing view. The ul­ti­mate in VIP treat­ment!

In a nut­shell, this tour was the high­light of our trip. Whether you are a lo­cal in need of some­thing to do with guests in town, want to celebrate a big oc­ca­sion or just friends on a va­ca­tion to­gether, what a great way to spend one of your days.

Here’s what you get for an ex­pe­ri­ence to re­mem­ber for a life­time:

8-hour tour with a view that never quits! Open bar with te­quila, rum, vodka, Mex­i­can beer, bot­tled wa­ter, soft drinks, and juice Chips and snacks for any­time you feel hun­gry be­tween meals Freshly pre­pared fish and shrimp ce­viche lunch A de­li­cious cheese­burger din­ner Tour in­cludes: beach tow­els, snorkel and fish­ing gear, float­ing noo­dles and life vests Plus an un­der­wa­ter cam­era and free edited photos at the end of the tour!

We paid $2,160 USD for the tour (that is for up to 15 peo­ple) and we were told about a deal for lo­cals -Riviera Elite gives a 10 per­cent off dis­count to “Playenses!” You can find them at www.riv­ier­aelite.com. Plan a trip to Heaven, Riviera Maya style, you won’t re­gret it!
