Xcaret Eco Park – Check out the lay of the land before you go

Posted by Loco Gringo in Aerial Tours,Vacation News


This is great aerial map and photo of Xcaret Eco Park, a large natural park that will keep you, your kids, your friends, or whoever you bring along, busy for days. Xcaret Eco Park is theme park that teaches you about everything natural in the Riviera Maya. We find it to be a great overview of the flora and fauna, geology and bodies of water before you venture out on your own. The Riviera Maya is a very diverse ecosystem that can be hard to learn about all at once before you arrive on vacation....

Chichen Itza from a different perspective

Wondering what you are really getting yourself into when you run off to the Chichen Itza Ruins? We just took a flight to the Ruins as this aerial tour was on our Bucket List.

We have done many flights over the Caribbean taking photos of the coast. But...

We did not jump on a rooftop, we took...

Not only are the Uxmal Ruins a favorite of ours, but this aerial photo of Uxmal is magical! You can see all of the main buildings of Uxmal and the jungle that surrounds the area. Nothing beats an actual trip but this is perfect for planning your excursion to Uxmal. The Pyramid of the Magician is as great as it looks in this photo. Love this and love the other Mayan ruin sites in the Riviera Maya and Yucatan. Living here has provided us with the luxury of seeing, first hand, many of the local...
