She describes herself as adventurous, spontaneous and passionate. At the young age of 25, Alex Lettrich has already become a social media icon, especially on Instagram, where she has 34,600 followers.
Who is Alex Lettrich?
Although she was born in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), she moved to Florida when she was only 7. She earned a degree in marine biology in 2015 but decided to pursue her greatest passion, which is to travel: “All the money I earn from work is spent on travelling, something I have loved since I was a child”
Lettrich has partnered with more than 20 brands, and as a good adventurer, she has visited an endless list of countries. A few years ago she decided to get a tattoo of a Buddha phrase that says, “Life is difficult, suffering is optional”.
She clearly prefers to avoid suffering. Her Instagram profile is capable of taking us to paradises with countless palm trees and crystal-clear waters. Her smile and freshness made a splash in Mexico at the end of May when she went on an unforgettable Riviera Maya vacation. “I love to walk barefoot, enjoy and make the most of my vacations. But above all, I enjoy visiting unforgettable places, like Mexico’s infinite beaches.”
During her time in the Riviera Maya paradise, Lettrich decided to stay at the Barceló Maya Grand Resort, where she made the most of all the comforts: the all-inclusive option, the tropical beaches, delicious restaurants, and the amazing shopping mall that is only open to guests.
Whenever Lettrich travels, she tries to learn more about the local culture and food. The Riviera Maya is one of the best destinations for this and visitors should be sure to check out all the local flavors, beaches, activities and experiences. For example, there is nothing like the pleasure eating freshly-cut fruit by the sea at any hour of the day. This burst of vitamins transforms any vacation into a gift for the body and soul.
The influencer took advantage of her time in the Riviera Maya to relax and do yoga under palm trees, enjoy massages on the beach and bask in a day at the spa, as can be seen in the following video:
Alex used her vacation to unwind and take a break from everything, but also to have fun on the Riviera Maya’s gorgeous beaches with crystal-clear water. She wasted no time in exploring the best underwater landscapes by scuba diving near the hotel’s beach. True to her athletic nature, she used her time in Mexico to enjoy one of the most entertaining water sports: snorkeling. She was able to do this on two excursions.
She first headed to Yal-ku, a natural lagoon and cenote near the coast of Quintana Roo where fresh water and salt water come together in this stunning landscape. Yal-ku is home to many marine species and boasts one of the loveliest views of the entire Mexican coast. Lettrich took advantage of this stop to swim in the irresistible transparent waters and learn more about the birds that live in this area.
The influencer went on another excursion that was also arranged by the hotel thanks to the on-site Barceló Vacations office. This time she went to one of the most famous underwater museums in Mexico: MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte, or Underwater Museum of Art).
MUSA is located in the waters that surround Cancún, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc. This unique museum can be visited in a number of ways: riding in a glass-bottom boat, scuba diving, snorkeling, or taking a small boat through the lagoon and the mangrove.
Lettrich decided to snorkel and she was completely amazed: “Visiting this museum was one of my most amazing experiences in Mexico and I would definitely do it again.”
To wrap up her fantastic vacation, Lettrich used her trip to the Mexican paradise to discover some unique spots. For example, she visited the Nohoch Mul Pyramid, which is the tallest in the Yucatan Peninsula and is located in Cobá’s Mayan ruins complex: “This was one of my favorite excursions, despite the fact that I had to climb 120 steps, making it unsuitable for people with vertigo. But the views overlooking the jungle were spectacular.”
