Mexico was never high on my ‘must see’ list for our nomadic adventures. My only experience with Mexico was one a day trip to Tijuana from San Diego 8 years ago and I was not impressed with what I saw. So I really didn’t have much intention on returning. Was I in for a surprise.
This spring, I decided to spend two months in a small Mexican town called Sayulita. Known for its yoga and its surf school, Sayulita is the kind of place that people visit, fall in love with, and move to (as is evidenced by the massive expat communities from the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and more).
Shopping in Cancun is great! The best thing about shopping here is there is something for every budget. There are markets, mid range & high end plazas.
I was intrigued by the countries in Central America, but the question “is it safe was always on my mind?” Good news. Central America is safe to travel to!
The Tulum ruins site (pronounced “too-LOOM”) is one of the many Mayan archaeological sites in the Mayan Riviera area of Mexico.
After spending a few days in Playa del Carmen we decided to venture out to one of the multiple tourist parks near town. The 3 main parks are Xplor, Xel-ha and Xcarat. We choose Xcarat.
It turns out we stumbled across a ‘magical’ town when we drove into Izamal Mexico. There are 35 towns in Mexico that are ‘magical’ and this is one of them.
Today we explored a really cool little island off the coast of Cancun called Isla Mujeres.
On a whim, we decided to check out the Museo Maya de Cancun – Cancun’s archaeology museum. It’s the largest structure built by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).
Before coming to Cancun Mexico I had read somewhere that people either love it or hate, there is no in between.
