Tips for an amazing vacation at El Dorado Seaside Resort in Riviera Maya

  1. Once you arrive in your room, put your wallet, passports and valuables inside your safe. (just don’t forget to grab them before you leave)
  2. Bring mosquito repellent. We purchased skedattle Natural Insect Repellent because it’s biodegradable and it’s made from essential oils.
  3. Bring sunscreen and don’t forgot to reapply it every 30 min. The heat in Mexico is more intense than in the U.S.
  4. Try all the restaurants at the resort, even if it’s just for an appetizer. That will give you an idea of what type of food they serve and may entice you to stay for dinner.
  5. Don’t be afraid to ask for seconds. This is a gourmet style restaurant and some of the servings were small. So, ask for another serving.
  6. Don’t be afraid to try new dishes. Just because you don’t like something at home may not mean you won’t like it @ El Dorado Seaside.  Also, if you don’t like it, just ask for something else. Remember, it’s “all-inclusive”
  7. Order 2 different appetizers, entrée and dessert. That way you can try each other’s plates.
  8. Ladies, don’t worry about packing your hair straightener. Yes, its humid and Yes, your hair may look crazy! But, who cares, you’re on vacation!
  9. Bring your own Unicorn float or “Alan” to the pool. It’s a great way to make friends and lounge around the pool!
  10. Join the Facebook fan page for all your questions answered. This group was amazing in helping me plan our vacation and providing trip for us..Thank you
  11. Stay at least 5 days but know you won’t do everything in that time frame.
  12. Definitely go on a couple of excursions. We Did Xel-Ha and Tulum. (see my post for those specific tip)
  13. Since El Dorado Seaside is divided up into 2 sides, spend some time on the other side of the resort. We made some friends painting a ceramic owl and spent a lovely afternoon with them.
  14. Bring bottle water with you everywhere, and drink lots of it. You don’t want to get dehydrated on your trip!
