On December 11th, the Moskito Riviera Maya team – including office staff, housekeeping, and maintenance from both of our offices, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, celebrated Christmas in true Caribbean style. With a day at Xel-Ha, an eco-park located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, that offers snorkeling, jungle adventures, and delicious drinks and food.
The day started with a hearty breakfast, then a jungle bike ride, followed by a thrilling ride down a water slide that stands 98.5 feet (30 meters) high! After that, a relaxing float down the river, under a beautiful canopy of mangrove trees, that opens to an area for snorkeling, cliff diving, zip lining, and other fun activities. The afternoon was spent relaxing in hammocks, taking in the sun, and enjoying the day with great coworkers and friends.
Posadas: A Mexican Christmas party
Christmas parties in Mexican are called “posadas”, which is a traditional celebration that takes place in Mexico and other Latin American countries, from December 16th to December 24th. A posada is a ritual re-enactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for a lodging in Bethlehem, but Moskito chose a less traditional party to enjoy the day.

A great time was had by all, the Moskito Riviera Maya team wishes you and yours a very Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year!
