Christmas and Chanukah with a Cause ...


Holidays are coming and it is the time to give. What better way to do that than with a gift that not only brings pleasure to those receiving them, but also helps a great cause?

Listed below are some great gift ideas available through organizations working to help causes in and around the Riviera Maya. They are listed in alphabetical order.

Akumal Toy Drive is a great way you can help during the holidays. They have been bringing smiles to children's faces since 2006.

Centro Ecológico Akumal has gift ideas! Family and friends get too much "stuff"? How about giving them a CEA membership or adopting a turtle in their name? With at least a $50 membership, the gift will include a card good for discounts at many Akumal businesses; for at least $100, a screensaver is added. Or have a turtle adoption certificate personalized and delivered. You can feel good about going green and giving some "green" to a good cause.
