Great Travel Moment
My family and I vacationed in Tulum, Mexico, staying in a house within an bioreserve. We were the only people for a mile in any direction and the view from the porch of our little cottage was like staring into an oasis. Because the house was within a bioreserve, it was ecofriendly--which meant it ran solely on solar power. My little brother, five years old at the time, found other ways to occupy his time than the usual computer games and cartoons--he trotted around the beach collecting coconuts.
