Today we’ve planned a full day out at Xcaret, an environmentally friendly theme park showcasing the very best of Mexico’s flora, fauna, cuisine and folk traditions. The park has some impressive conservation credentials, with part of the admission price going to support programs protecting ecosystems and endangered species.
You can read Mexico, Part I here Immediately upon landing in Mérida, the difference between the Yucatan Peninsula and the central highlands of Mexico is apparent. Wind-whipped palm trees and lush greenery flank the roads that cut through the dense jungle that covers much of the peninsula, a marked departure from the dusty, arid rolling hills […]
For many people hopping on a bike is a frequent occurrence. For us, not so much. But the size of the Coba Archaeological Zone almost requires riding a two wheeler. You could walk it, but the distances between sights can be several kilometers. A third option are the pedicabs, but those pedicab drivers were almost […]
Last week Mexico celebrated the Dia de Los Muertos – also known as Day of the Dead -and we joined in on the celebration in Playa del Carmen, near our home on Cozumel. For those that don’t know, it’s not just a “Mexican Haloween” and it’s not all about skulls and white face paint. There is […]

Hey friends! I cannot seem to let go of how magical Mexico was, and thought I’d share with you these photos of my flight back to the States.
The Riviera Maya (and Yucatan Peninsula) is more than just sunshine, margaritas and beaches. There are hundreds of big and small Mayan ruins scattered across Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and even into northern Honduras. Two of the three most popular Archeological Sites in Mexico are located here; Chichen Itza and Tulum. They are always going to be […]
The past couple of days have been full of exploring and finding unreal beaches. I seriously didn’t think anything could top the Isla of Mujeres beaches but Bacalar definitely takes the cake. I’m talking about the CLEAREST blue water I’ve ever seen, even clearer then a pool. 😮😮 The really cool thing about Bacalar is […]
