There are so many interesting sites to see and explore. Climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and view the entire city from above. Tip, there is a tunnel under the Arc de Triomphe to get to the other side of the 12 converging streets! Walk down the Champ de Elysees for a break at a coffee shop and great shopping. Don’t miss the Musee del l’ Orangerie in the Jardin de Tuileries to see Monet waterlilies in the round. The Opera de Paris Garnier has an imposing grand staircase and you can have a tour of the backstage and behind the scenes. Perhaps a treat to purchase ballets tickets while visiting Paris? Notre Dame Cathedral is beautiful and has a wonderful creperie around the corner.

Of course, no visit to Paris would be complete without a stop at the Louvre (hint visit in the evening it is less crowded). If art is not your thing, but you know you should go to the Louvre here are some highlights: The Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrase, and Napoleons apartments.

The right bank of the Seine, is the St. Germain area. Filled with restaurants, shopping and cafes. The Musee d’ Orsay is an art museum in an old train station filled with impressionist artists’ works. In the area of Montmarte climb the tower at Sacre Coeur for breathtaking views. In this area there are amazing cheese shops and bakeries that smell delicious from fresh baked baguettes. One could take a boat ride along the Seine River either during the day or in the evening to gain a different perspective of Paris from the river.

Food and wine throughout the city of Paris is fabulous. While walking various arrondissement (neighborhoods) stop in at a café or a local restaurant and relax and enjoy. Take your time through a meal and savor every moment.

Finally, Paris is as romantic as you have read and dreamt about. There are bridges throughout the city, so you can easily cross the Seine River from the left bank to the right bank. These bridges are filled with locks of love.

Paris is a walking city, so we wish you happy exploring, delicious food, and romance!

5 Excursions from Cancun

1. Take a Tour of Tulum

It’s an archaeologist’s dream, with beautifully preserved structures and a rich social history, being one of the last cities that the Mayan people built and lived in. Feel the bygone days come alive again as you begin to explore the different ruins Tulum has to offer. View Tulum’s incredible temples. Walk up the pathway to the top of the cliff to see ‘El Castillo’ (‘The Castle’), often referred to as ‘The Lighthouse’ because it guided incoming ships. Take time to see the partially restored mural at the ‘Templo de las Pinturas’ (‘Temple of Paintings’), where you can admire what’s left of actual Mayan murals that adorned the temple. These and other highlights of one of the last Mayan cities will surely impress you.

2. Swim in a Cenote

The Riviera Maya has many “Cenotes”, which are underground rivers or lakes that you can snorkel or swim in. There are different types of cenotes. Some are rivers that turn into caves. Some are actually holes in the earth that you climb down into and can swim in. The experience is very fun and this is one of the few places in the world that you can experience a Cenote.

3. Sail to Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres or the Island of Women as it is known, is a small island off the coast of Cancun. The best way to get around the island is to rent a bike or a golf cart and drive around the island. We suggest a full day sail tour that will take you to a private beach club for the day where you can relax in the turquoise waters of the island.

4. Zip Line

There are many great zip line courses in the Riviera Maya. Our favorite location is Xplor. It is located very close to Playa Del Carmen and can provide you a full day of fun. Admission to Xplor also includes swimming in a lazy river, diving in a cenote and rock climbing. One of the most unique things at Xplor is that they are open at night. The experience of zip lining at night is very exciting.

5. Swim with the Dolphins

There are several locations in Cancun and the Riviera Maya where you can swim with the Dolphins.

Feel free to ask us about the cost of these excursions as we can reserve your spot for them when we reserve your trip.
