Swimming with Dolphins in Riviera Maya

Swimming with Dolphins in Riviera Maya by www.carlosmeliablog.comSwimming with Dolphins in Riviera Maya  |  Riviera Maya  |  This was my afternoon here in Riviera Maya. I had the great experience, for second time in my life, to swim in direct contact with Dolphins. It is such an amazing experience, to spend time from them and see how they behave, react and interact. I will let the images do the talking of course, all I have to say on this matter, specially in this region of the world, is to choose the right Aquarium and company to do this type of experiences. This is my advice. !!! Do not fund companies that mistreat animals. All it takes is just a little research, to be mindful and to put our grain to help. For this I came to Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya. One of the few 63, out of over 360 Aquariums worldwide, certified by Alliance – www.ammpa.organd with professional IMATA Trainers – www.imata.org. My experience was to float around the Dolphins and enjoy an hour around them. This was a priority to me before doing this experience. Their Riviera Maya location was just 10 minutes away from my hotel the Belmond Maroma Resort. Although it is located over the beach, the experience takes place inside a huge Ocean fresh water pool.

Marieta Islands National Park Mexico

Marieta Islands National Park Mexico  |  Riviera Nayarit, Mexico  |  Today I spent my full morning exploring the area of Bahia Banderas, and Marieta Islands National Park in the state of Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, waters of the Pacific Ocean. A group of small uninhabited islands a few miles off the coast with two main volcanic formations dating from 60K years ago, each called Redonda (Rounded) and Larga (Long). The photo above is an aereal photo (not taken by me) of the hidden beach located on the rounded main island. The access is only through a very narrow tunnel, since nobody is allow on the island anymore these days. Just SPECTACULAR. The beach was under a formation of volcanic rock which served as a sort of a roof, which collapsed long time ago, leaving this unusual beach out to be admired by all of us. Boats stop at the main entrance of the tunnel and you have to snorkel and swim your way into it.  Continue reading Marieta Islands National Park Mexico
