Ex­pe­ri­ence Heaven

The Playa Times Riviera Maya's English Newspaper - - Enterprise Focus -

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!
