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…

Florida: The Keys & Everglades

After a couple of days of poor weather in Miami, we made our way south to The Keys. We rented a car at Miami airport; Key Largo was our first stop. The weather that day was once again pretty rubbish, but luckily it stayed dry in the morning which allowed us to go around the…

Florida: Miami

A good word to describe our time in Miami is…wet. We clearly made a mistake thinking we’d get lucky with the weather, even though we knew it was the hurricane season. Hey, at least we tried. It took over 120 days before our plans were ruined by poor weather – we’ll take that. Miami being…

Florida: Orlando

This post might be one of our shortest. To be completely honest, we didn’t see anything of Orlando outside of Universal Studios! We were so exhausted after the week in New York that we used this time to rest without feeling too guilty about it. We really only stopped there for the amusement park, and…
