The Return Home – Southern Mexico

Work, relocation and the daily grind has gotten the best of me – up until today, the blog has all been but forgotten. I finally signed up for the “Time-Hop” feature on Facebook and it was the swift kick in the ass that I needed. A year ago, around this time, we were faced with…

Sunsets for Days

Welcome to our library of our most important ritual of trip. Not much reading here, strictly beautiful pictures.    

Back to Bacalar – The Photos

Here’s a bit of a catch up and a teaser. I have an “office day” planned for Friday to fully dive into one of our favorite places on our trip, San Juan del Sur, Rivas, Nicaragua. But until then, a little eye candy for everyone’s Tuesday. I have not emptied my camera card again on…

Why has it taken so long to write about Bacalar, Mexico!?

Whew! It’s been so long since a post, it feels like ages since we left our last destination in Mexico. Bacalar, what can I say? I am confident that I will not be able to convey an accurate description of the place. It is that wonderful. It is such a great place that we stayed…

The Yucatan

We arrived in Bacalar after our day of ruin hopping. When we pulled in it started to rain and the hostel we had decided on was the only really economic for camping. Bacalar Magic looks like a really cool, good vibes hostel, but private rooms are overpriced and you still share a bathroom with the…

Becan

The ruinas at Becan get their own entry. It was just to wonderful. There were more cars in the lot when we pulled into Becan. Becan was also more expensive to enter than Balamku. I hadn’t seen too many pictures but had wrote in my notes “must see, impressive pyramids, DO NOT SKIP”. This complex…

After Palenque comes the Campeche – Balamku

We stayed in the jungle for 4 days. First night at the Yaxin Hostel (pass on this), 2 nights at El Panchan with Margarita and Ed (that was pretty nice) and the last night at the Maya Bell campground. I wish we would have camped more nights at Maya Bell, they have a pool and…

Palenque – Outside the ruins

            The ruins are hot. The town is hot. Palenque is one of the hottest and most humid places in Mexico during the wet season. So after days of dripping sweat in mosquito land, what do you do? Just after the ruins, an easy walk, are some cascadas (waterfalls). They…

Palenque

It is so unbelievably hard to document all that we have done. Between long days of driving and unreliable internet… Pictures become pictures and roads are simply roads that we have traveled down. I know now that I will do a brief post of each country when we are done to give the run down…

EYE CANDY!

Pics that are just better to look at.   Time to get off the laptop and enjoy the beach! Cheers!  

Teotihuacan and Hot Air Balloons

We were given some priceless advice for visiting Teotihuacan – Go early. Go as soon as they open. What a treat that was. When we arrived at 7:45am, we were about 2 of the 10 people in the park. It was so quiet and peaceful, it was hard to imagine that they placed ever filled…

The Churches of San Miguel de Allende

The one thing we said to one another, over and over again, while walking through San Miguel de Allende was that we regret not doing any research about the churches… and more specifically on the specific religious figures that adorn the churches. This is one of the most photographed churches in all of Mexico, and…
