5 Steps For Disconnecting From Everything On Your Next Vacation

Millennials or, as the previous generation knows them, “sons and daughters,” have the problem and the advantage of living perpetually connected to the world. This has also permeated through to all the generations living with them in the world today.

Especially now that all of us spend more than 40 hours interacting with each other, even with people sitting next to us in the office. Arguably, we are interacting less sometimes with “real” people.

Many of us are slaves to our phones and computers, but at the moment of deciding to take a well-deserved vacation, we have to decide to turn off the notifications, too.

Here’s how, in a few simple steps:

  1. Plan your vacation days. Planning your rest and relaxation days is important so that you’re also very aware of projects, delivery times and scheduled meetings.
  2. Let people know you’re going on vacation. It can be very difficult for some to let projects they are working on go, but it’s important so nothing interrupts your “sacred” days.
  3. Establish a schedule for checking in. Once your vacation is here, it may be impossible to stop checking the status of many projects, however, you can set up a time to catch up.
  4. Put your work groups on “mute”. WhatsApp groups can help you plan lunch or coffee dates with people you don’t see very often, but they can also stress you out. It’s important to respect your time off.
  5. Have fun in a place that allows it. Some hotels won’t let you enjoy your vacation fully because of strict and particular rules; however, if you visit a place like Happy Address, your vacation will be made to fit your needs and not the other way around.

Let us help you find a way to disconnect from everyday stress and have fun like never before.

 

 

 


Enjoy the Mayan Riviera with Your Kids!

Going to the beach on summer vacation has been very popular among families over generations. It’s an opportunity to do something different, have fun, and reconnect with your loved ones. Besides, do you know about the benefits the beach provides to the health of the little ones?

And, if you come to a Caribbean beach, it will be much better!

These beaches are the best option for families with little kids because the sea is calm, without dangerous waves or currents, the sand is white and soft, and the seashore is a safe place for the little kids to play and have fun.

 

 

The sea breeze is very beneficial for the kids’ overall health, it goes from relieving asthma-related ailments and dermatitis, to boosting the immune system, and providing a calming and sedating effect, thanks to the waves of the sea and the minerals it has.

We have to be very careful, however, since it’s not a smart choice taking younger than 6 months babies to the beach, for example, and older kids must be protected against UVA and UVB rays with sunscreen.

We are Happy Address, and we are here to help you have an unforgettable summer vacation with your family. All of you can have a great experience here. The apartments we provide are wide, comfortable, and very practical, besides there are areas and swimming pools specific for kids in some of our developments.

Happy Address provides Nanny and Babysitting service, so grown ups also can have fun while the little ones are in good hands.

We are waiting for you in the Mayan Riviera!

 

 

 


Enjoy the Mexican Caribbean and Take Care of It

Everybody knows the planet needs our attention, and we can all contribute to the collective wellbeing by taking action. Enjoying our vacation carries along the responsibility to take care of the place we’re in as a way to repay the pleasure it provides.

Beaches are home to a great biodiversity. The flora and fauna which live there, and in the reefs and oceans, are myriads… what else could we expect when we know life started in the sea? Besides, beaches and oceans help to regulate global climate and weather by allowing air currents to enter the land, among other weather phenomena.

Now we want to share with you three simple reasons to enjoy and take care of the beach, keep them in mind!

 

1. There’s no better place to walk barefoot

Remember yourself walking down the beach. It isn’t just pleasure. Ayurvedic medicine calls it “grounding” and considers this practice as healthy and important as getting a good night’s sleep and eating healthy food. Don’t throw your litter on the beach and pick up litter you see and dispose of it in the trash.

 

2. There’s no better tan than suntan

Besides getting your daily dose of vitamin D, sunbathing will help you achieve a great complexion. Don’t forget of course to put on enough sunscreen and skincare cream for tanned skin. Our advice: use high quality biodegradable skincare products.

 

3. There’s no bigger magic than that of the sea

It seduces the skin, the eye, the touch, the smell… the sea is the house of life and we must protect it, even from ourselves, keeping the coasts and shores clean so no litter will reach the sea. Also, when you go by boat, throw no garbage into the ocean!

 

 

 


It’s Time to Plan the Graduation Trip of Your Dreams

Are you about to finish your last year of school? Whether you are completing college, your bachelor’s or master’s degree, or even a PhD program, don’t you think it’s time to start planning for your graduation trip with your besties? A trip would be a great way to close this cycle, relax and have fun, far away from the stress of your college years.

There are many destinations to choose from: beaches, mountains, interesting cities… what would you like? At Happy Address we believe that a paradise-like place in the Mayan Riviera like Tulum or Playa del Carmen would be your best bet. These destinations offer many options for travelers: relaxing, partying, communing with Nature, enjoying adventure tourism, archaeological sites, and so on.

 

 

We encourage you to do a little research on packages, destinations, payment plans, and to take into account the following tips:

 

1. Find out what the group’s interests are

Adventure tourism, peaceful beaches, partying in the best nightclubs in town? This is the first step to choose the right destination for your squad. Cancun is partying hard, Playa has a bohemian and eclectic vibe, while Tulum is more peaceful.

 

2. Choose the best destination for your squad

Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Tulum? Happy Address provides the best accommodation in any of these marvelous places. Wonderfully located comfortable and luxurious condos.

 

3. Book a place that adapts to you, not the other way round

All-Inclusive packages are very popular in the Mayan Riviera, just like the big chain hotels. However, hotels have rules that can be exceedingly strict and jeopardize your plans and the activities you want to do according to your squad’s needs and preferences.

 

Remember that Happy Address is your ally in the Mayan Riviera. We are waiting for you.

 

 

 


5 Tips for Saving on Your Vacation

Maybe it seems unlikely or a very complicated business, but saving on your vacation is an actual and very useful advice. It doesn’t mean skimping on expenses and dealing with scarcity. Whether yo go on vacation in high season or regular season, and whether you travel alone, with family or with friends, we want to give you some tips that will allow you to manage your resources efficiently, and make the most of them.

 

1. Buy in advance.

If you are able to plan your trip ahead, we recommend you to buy air tickets ahead of time. Airlines offer unique discounts on advance purchases. Besides, you can take advantage of additional discounts, such as coupons and discount codes.

 

2. Compare prices.

It’s always important to have options, especially when it comes to service providers: airlines, accommodation, tour providers, and so on. Have you ever been shopping in a market where the sellers themselves fight each other for your attention? The same thing happens sometimes with airlines and hotels.

 

3. Look for good accommodation.

This is one of the highest expenses on vacation. Choosing where to stay doesn’t have to be so complicated, even if we’re talking of a place with so many options like Playa del Carmen or Tulum. The variety of hotels, hostels, and condos is huge, truly; however at Happy Address, we are committed to quality at a great price, so our apartment and condo catalogue is always a safe bet.

 

4. Explore food options.

Sometimes, famous restaurants are really worth their fame. However, prices are high and eating everyday there could hold you back from enjoying other options. We recommend looking for restaurants that are hidden gems (ask the local folks), and also, why not?, enjoy your own home made food at your Happy Address condo.

 

5. Have an authentic experience.

Although it’s always nice to book tours in order to save time and avoid mistakes, mixing with the vibe of a new place is an experience unmatched in every way. Living like a true local will allow you to discover and enjoy your travel destination in a very different way than that of a tourist.

Remember that we are here, at Happy Address, to support you and make you enjoy an unforgettable stay in the Mayan Riviera. We see you here!

 

 

 


Enjoy Spring in the Mexican Caribbean

Everyone who has been to the Mayan Riviera in different seasons knows that it is wonderful all year long. However, the Caribbean sea shows its greatest colors in Spring. Because of the weather, the sea is very calm on the inside and outside, and you could enjoy all the shades of turquoise blue and emerald green of the sea, taking a rest on the white-sand shore.

Besides, there are many activities to enjoy that will result in an unforgettable experience: you could plan an escapade to Chichén Itzá, for example, during Spring equinox, to look at Kukulkán’s descent on the Mayan castle, or visit some other nearby archaeological sites where other optic phenomenons take place, or attend a ceremony to welcome the Spring.

If you’re into partying, this season is great for it, since on Spring Break the beaches, nightclubs and bars are full with young people willing to have fun and an incredible vacation. A few days later, during Easter holidays, there is a more family-friendly vibe, and you could take advantage of the variety of aquatic activities and tours to the cenotes, mangroves, or the jungle.

If you prefer something more relaxing to fully enjoy this season in which the sea looks beautiful, and you don’t like crowds, we recommend to come here after Easter, when is Low Season, so you will be able to go at your own pace, and enjoy Spring in the Mayan Riviera.

Happy Address provides the best accommodation according to your needs and expectations. We see you here!

 

 

 


Enjoy the Mexican Caribbean with your Besties!

True friendship is the greatest treasure anyone can enjoy. Having close and loyal people around whom we can depend on gives us emotional wellbeing, joy, trust, and is also good for our overall health.

In this fast-paced world, making time to reactivate friendships or to nurture new found special attachments can prove difficult. That’s why finding alternative options like a best friend trip, far away from daily endeavors, to a vibrant and cool destination, will turn up in an unforgettable experience for you. Have you thought about the Mayan Riviera?

Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum are the most popular destinations in the Mexican Caribbean. Each one has a unique identity and characteristics. While Cancun is pure fun and adventure with a lot of people, Playa is a cool and bohemian multicultural city, where you can always throw a party, Tulum is all peace and tranquility, close to Nature and the ancient spirit of the Maya people. Where would you like to go with your besties?

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. However, no matter the season, there are always good reasons to plan an escapade. Although there are many hotels and condos here, only with Happy Address will you have a unique experience, away from chain hotels and all-inclusive packages. Check out the luxury condos we offer!

 

 

 


The Mayan Riviera is for kids too!

If you want to visit the Mayan Riviera with your family, we want to let you know that you would guarantee them one of the happiest trips of their lives. Not only will they enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches of the world, but they also will find a lot of activities which will turn into unforgettable experiences.

If you come to Playa del Carmen o Tulum, you can take a tour to a nearby cenote or explore the mangroves by kayak. Swimming with dolphins is also an option. Whatever you decide is a great choice and will make your children feel very close to Nature.

If you want to visit an amusement park with a wide variety of activities to choose from, here are two options:

 

Xcaret

This natural park is the most famous of the region. Here you can swim or take a raft tour through underground rivers, as well as learn about the local traditions and cuisine, which have been recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Go to Xcaret’s website here.

 

Croco Cun Zoo

Located in Puerto Morelos, this is a unique zoo: not only can you feed the animals, but you also are allowed to touch them and hold them in your arms. If you’re brave enough, you can also walk safely among crocodiles. Go to Croco Cun Zoo’s website here.

We encourage you not to stay in a chain hotel, look for a condo instead where you and your family can feel at ease. Besides your privacy, safety and peace, if you stay at any Happy Address accommodation, you can count on additional services such as private chef, concierge, nanny, and so much more available to make sure your family is safe and having a great time in the Mexican Caribben.

 

 

 


Enjoy the Mayan Riviera in 2019!

Now that 2019 has just begun, it’s time to make plans and schedule important events. Where do you want to go on vacation? The beautiful landscapes and the many different activities it offers for travelers make the Mayan Riviera one of the most popular destinations of the world.

When is the best time for visiting the Mexican Caribbean? Well, it depends… what are your plans and priorities? Are you looking for affordable prices? Attending a special event or enjoying a specific season? Is the weather a main factor in your decision making process?

 

High Season vs Low Season

If you want to take advantage of the low prices and enjoy the Mayan Riviera without a lot of fuzz and people, the low season (May- June, September-October) is your best option. On the other hand, if you want to meet a lot of new people and party a lot, high season (December-January, Spring Break, Easter and Summer) is for you.

 

Special Events

Different festivals, activities and events take place all year round. We encourage you to keep an eye on our blog so you know what’s coming. The day of the dead (early November), the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival (end of November-early December) and the Winter Holiday Season are among the most popular.

 

The Weather

Are you very sensitive to hot weather? From May to September both humidity and temperature rise, so you will need to take extra special care for outdoor activities. If you prefer a more gentle weather, the rest of the year will suit you well. Keep in mind that the rainy season is also the hot one.

Remember that enjoying the Mayan Riviera is a never ending story. Come whenever you want to, and experience different moods in different seasons. We are Happy Address and we are here for you.
