Cancun & Isla Mujeres

Last leg of our time in Mexico: Cancun! We easily reached cancun by getting the ferry from Isla Holbox to Chiquila, and then another ADO bus to Cancun. I must say we have been very impressed with Mexican buses. They were on time, very comfortable, and cheap. Some even had wifi. They really made our…

Isla Holbox

We left Holbox with mixed feelings. Let me explain why. We got a bus from Tulum center all the way to Chiquila about, 3.5hrs away. In Chiquila, you need to take a 30min ferry that drops you off at the Isla Holbox port. Easy. Holbox is a small island located on the north-eastern side of…

Chichen Itza & Akumal

As part of our time in Tulum, we decided to make our way to Chichen Itza, one of the most iconic Mayan cities in Mexico. Located about 2h40 from Tulum, midway between Tulum and Mérida, the site can easily be reached with ADO or any other bus company. We left Tulum at 9am that day,…

Tulum

After 4 nights, we unfortunately reached the time to say goodbye to our little slice of heaven in Bacalar. We had booked an ADO bus from Bacalar, which got us to the center of Tulum in 2h40. Very easy. Our accommodation was located in the center of Tulum, unfortunately quite far from the beach as…

Bacalar

After a very full on start to our trip in Mexico, and a long journey having to layover in Mexico city, we made it to Bacalar. It’s a very small town, made popular due to the surrounding 7 shades of blue lagoon. We flew into Chetumal, the nearest airport, and was at our first hotel…

San Cristobal de Las Casas & Palenque

After only 2 days in Oaxaca, we reached the time to fly east to San Cristobal de Las Casas. Nested in the middle of the mountains, San Cristobal de las Casas is well known for its typical Mexican vibe, and for being a good stop on the way to visit Palenque, an old Mayan city….

Oaxaca – Centro

On our second (and last) day in Oaxaca, we decided to visit the center of the town. This was nice and close to our accommodation. We started the day by a quick trip to the ADO bus station to exchange a bus ticket we purchased the day before as I made a mistake while booking…

Oaxaca – Hierve El Agua

After over 6 weeks of living the American dream, we reached the time to kiss Trump’s country good bye. Our next stop for the upcoming 3 weeks will be Mexico! We organised to fly from Fort Lauderdale and make a long way to Oaxaca, with a stopover in Dallas as there wasn’t any direct flight…
