The 2018 Bucket List You Won’t Like To Miss

12 Months, 12 Challenges

Will you be able to achieve them all?

A new year begins, and we all have goals we would like to achieve throughout the year. But as the months go by, it turns more complicated to keep up with our goals.

This year I wanted to try something different, and I made a list of 12 various and funny activities which can only be found at the Mayan Riviera which I thought I couldn´t miss this 2018. 

12 different activities, divided one for each month. Would you dare to achieve each of them?

1.- Swim in an underground river

Underground rivers are part of a big underground water system which exists under the Mayan Riviera. Swiming at an underground river allows you to relax while you swim with the current of the water and admire the beauty of the rock formations on the tunnels.

The water was freezing but look how pretty it is! The best part about Xcaret is this river 💙

2.- Lose my fear of heights

Which would be the best way to overcome the fear of heights? Getting to the tallest point on the Mayan Riviera might seem like the best option. The reward would be the chance to enjoy one of the best viewpoints of this paradise.

4.- Swimming with sharks

 An experience full of adrenaline that very few people could say they have done. Swiming with this intimidating creatures might not be as scary as it seems. 

5.- Discover beyond my senses

What would you feel if you tried to guide yourself with only the sound of what you listen around without being able to see? This is the month when you will develop your senses. Don’t trust everything you see, sometimes there’s more than meets the eye.

"Im one with the force. The force is with me."❤️💪

12.-Learn about a prehispanic culture

Mexico is known for its rich history. Many prehispanic cultures existed on the Mexican territory, such as the Olmecs, also known as the “mother of cultures” as it is the first known culture in the country. Another prehispanic culture widely known are the Mayans, who occupied a big part of the Mexican territory, from the Yucatan state, up to Guatemala.

At the Mayan Riviera, we have the opportunity to learn more about the Mayan culture from first hand, as we can visit the ancient Mayan ruins on this territory.
