Find a few English to Spanish Phrases to help you in your adventure on the Riviera Maya

One of the great attributes of the Riviera Maya is the Smiling attitude of the local people. While at a restaurant, it is considered rude for the waiter to bring your check before you ask. Just say "La Cuenta Por Favor", which means "the check please", and you'll be on your way. These phrases will help you to attempt to communicate in Spanish.  They are always pleased when we "try" to speak Spanish. So are very valuable as you will see as you read them. 
Take a few moments to learn these and you will be glad you did!
