Your host will be meeting you at the lobby of your hotel or in front of your vacation rental. Since all our expeditions are private, you can choose any time you desire. However, to have the best possible experiences, we recommend the earlier the better. Depending on your hotels/vacation rentals location and your first destination we will pick you up between 05:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. During your check-out process on our website each excursion will have stated the available pickup time options for you to choose. Should you have any additional questions or requests, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All our excursions include private round-trip transportation with a certified driver, fully insured car with a/c and a cooler full of beverages, water, and beer.

We pick up anywhere you are staying in the Riviera Maya. That includes any hotel, vacation rental home, cabaña from Playa Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras and Tulum. We will pick you up from your doorstep or main lobby.

For the best possible experience we recommend the following:

● Towel (your hotel/rental will provide them)

● Sandals or flip-flops for the cenotes and snorkeling activities

● Comfortable walking shoes for archaeological sites

● Sunglasses/hat are optional

● Biodegradable sunscreen and/or repellent

● Some money for, extra beverages during lunch, souvenirs, and gratitudes

As you are about to read, we care very much about our ecosystem. We highly recommend the use of rash guards rather than any kind of sunscreen, since it is a threat to our environment because of its ingredients. Parks like Xcaret, Xel-ha only allow “biodegradable” lotions, but be please careful. Just because a product states it is biodegradable, it does not mean it is good for the marine life and other eco-systems, like the cenotes. The main components of most sunscreens are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide; ingredients that will never biodegrade and have the potential to harm coral and sea life. Some also contain mineral oil (petroleum) which has a low solubility rate in water, is slow to biodegrade and is known to be harmful or fatal to some aquatic life and birds. If you are in a hurry, we have you covered. We took a closer look at the best-rated sunscreens marketed specifically for use on babies and children. The highest rated sunscreen for babies is Babo Botanicals Baby Skin Mineral Sunscreen and for children: Sunology Mineral Sunscreen Lotion, Kids, SPF 50. For adults we recommend a combination of a rash guard and Raw Love All-Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 35 Safe for Reefs.

It is quite common that people do not want to snorkel or are not looking for the adrenaline a zip-line might provide. All our activities are optional and there is no problem at all if someone does not want to participate in certain activities. There are always places with shade where you can relax and enjoy watching the others. Please keep in mind, we want to offer you a worry-free experience.

It will be a pleasure for us to introduce you to this amazing activity. Your personal tour guide will take time to explain to you the technique of snorkeling and will practice with you until you feel comfortable. We will never rush you into the water or pressure you. Take this as an opportunity to learn about a new activity which easily can become a passion. We highly recommend locations like the Turtle Bay or cenotes to start with. If you consider booking our Whale Shark Quest please make sure you are comfortable with the activity of snorkeling. There is no time to practice during this excursion.

If you own snorkel gear and feel more comfortable with it, feel free to bring your own equipment, but it is not necessary. We provide clean, sanitized and professional snorkel equipment and life jackets.

It is almost IMPOSSIBLE for online weather predictors to keep up with an accurate depiction. Luckily, we have been here years and are acclimatized to the trends and forecasts of this region better than anyone. If the forecast says rain, rain, rain for your visit DO NOT PANIC. Unless there is a stationary front hanging over the Caribbean, the only limitation that might occur is a closed beach or port, for safety reasons. In that case, we will contact you the afternoon before your expedition to try to reschedule or cancel your expedition. If your tour is cancelled by the tour operator for any reason, including weather condition, you will receive a full refund or be able to reschedule your tour with no penalty. For more information, read our blog post about the Caribbean Weather.

The pricing of each excursion is depending on which locations you would like to visit, the combination of the sites and how many travellers are participating. It is important for us to let you know that we operate under a dynamic system in which per guest rates diminish as guest count rises. This is due to the fixed expenses of a private daytrip being pooled by the participants.

Sargassum sea weed is a macro alga that has always existed in the Atlantic Ocean. There are actually entire ecosystems that have evolved over millennia completely centered around this marine plant. Unbeknown to many, the recent threat of sea weed is not exclusive to the beaches of Cancun and the Riviera Maya. Sadly, this issue has a seemingly endless reach all throughout the Caribbean. Cue the Yucatan Peninsula’s privileged treasure of seaweed free aquatic activities. Consider the following: swimming in an open-air cenote with crystal-clear water teaming with fish and subaquatic plant life, snorkel and explore an underground river system below the jungle floor that screams National Geographic, or find yourself blissfully floating in a turquoise lagoon with a level of beauty that can only be captured by the human eye. Experiences that open up an entirely new world of opportunities. Feel free to contact us in order to create the perfect “sea weed free” experience for you.

Well, you can stop dreaming because this magical place it’s in the Riviera Maya and by the hands of Living Dreams Mexico you will find your ideal host!!

This incredible region including Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and its surrounding areas has always been known for its openness to diversity, whether it is different nationalities, cultural backgrounds or sexual orientation and gender expression.

Many travelers do not know how advanced is Mexico regarding the rights of the LGBTQ community, for example: In June 2015, the Mexican Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional, so now it is legal in all 32 states, with the same rights as any straight couple, including adoption! Granted some rural areas of Mexico are still struggling to be more accepting, however, if we could go back in time, you would realize that to most of our ancient cultures, like the Maya, a different sexual orientation was perfectly accepted, in many cases celebrated and considered sacred!!

Immerse yourself into this amazing facts, ruins, cenotes, culture, snorkeling while staying in the Region and allow us to prove to you why we are the number one tour operator for private expeditions in all the Riviera Maya, basically let us show you that LOVEISLOVE.

In LIVING DREAMS MEXICO we have always valued and respected diversity, our own team is the proof of it!! Let us be the experts to make your dreams with your loved one and family come true!!!
