The 'Riviera Maya' is the coast of Yucatan from Cancun to Tulum. Time ago in that place there was only some little fisherman's village. Then the Mexico government decided to build a tourist area. Cancun was born in the 70'. In a few years many hotels was built and now 'la zona hotelera' of Cancun is named Little Miami.

    Rogers boots are fakes. Do not buy unless they are about 60 dollars. The boots are embosed leather.

    I was actually wondering where Xel-ha is located. I would be taking a ferry from Cozumel, which direction would I go from there? Thank you, Melodie
