We were thrown into a cave filled with water, trekked through the Mayan jungle, zip-lined without going through cardiac arrest, kayaked alongside crocodiles and sipped some incredible cocktails, beachside. Many of these these were “firsts” to check off our bucket-list and lived through it all to blog about it.
The most exciting part about traveling are these “firsts”. First sips of a regional drink, first bite of a popular local dish and first experiences of a culture that leave a lasting impression. On our travels, either personal or for work, we’re always looking for these experiences like curious kids embarking on a new playground. Even if it’s to an area we’ve already visited, there’s always new adventures waiting to be discovered. On our visit to Riviera Maya, Mexico with Fairmont Mayakoba and Fairmont Hotels last month, the days and nights were filled-to-the-brim with new experiences.

Each of their diverse hotel locations provide guests with memorable travel experiences, thoughtful and attentive service and truly unforgettable memories. We feel truly lucky to be working with them on this creative project.
