The End of Our Mexico Adventure: Cancun

The End of Our Mexico Adventure: Cancun

We left Merida, and took the ADO Bus to the city center of Cancun, about a 4 and a half hour journey.  It was pouring rain when we arrived, and my husband, now well practiced at negotiation, bargained a taxi ride to our hotel.  Although […]

Connecting with Family & Friends in Merida

Connecting with Family & Friends in Merida

Spending time in the capital city of the Yucatan, Merida, was not even on our radar, until our traveling friends brought our attention to a Worldschooling Gathering taking place there in April.  We were very excited about the opportunity to spend time with our friends […]

Ek’ Balam

Ek’ Balam

We used Valladolid as a base when visiting the ruins of Ek’Balam.  The ruins site was only about a half hour drive away from the city center, and there didn’t seem to be an easy way to catch a Collectivo, so we chose to hail […]

Stepping Back in Time: Valladolid, Mexico

Stepping Back in Time: Valladolid, Mexico

After spending a week and a half on the gorgeous Riviera Maya, it was time for us to head inland to the charming city of Valladolid, located in almost the center of the Yucatan peninsula.  We arrived into Valladolid’s ADO bus station, where we stepped […]

A Cenote Tour & The Coba Ruins, Mexico

A Cenote Tour & The Coba Ruins, Mexico

After a busy, but fun-filled weekend in Playa Del Carmen, I decided that I wasn’t in the mood to figure out all the details of how to get to the Coba Ruins, so instead we just booked a tour that would take us to Coba […]

Tulum Boat Ride and Snorkeling

Tulum Boat Ride and Snorkeling

After we left the beautiful Tulum Ruins and cooled off a bit, we walked toward Playa Pescadores, vowing that we would taxi back on our return. The kids entertained themselves and many passers-by on our walk, as they belted out more songs from Moana. The beach was […]

Tulum Ruins, Mexico

Tulum Ruins, Mexico

When we woke up the morning after our day at the beach in Xpu-Ha, we were unsure about attempting another full day outing to see Tulum in the hot sun.  We decided we’d just do a quick trip there and back, skipping the beach due to […]

Reunion in Playa Del Carmen and Xpu-Ha, Mexico

Reunion in Playa Del Carmen and Xpu-Ha, Mexico

A few days after arriving in Playa Del Carmen, we had a reunion with friends that we had met in San Diego at the RV Rally in January of 2016.  Their family joined us for a long weekend in Playa Del Carmen, before we would reunite again […]

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: Yucatan, Mexico

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: Yucatan, Mexico

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles were all necessary to get us to Mexico.  Once we arrived it became more like Rickshaws, Colectivos, and Motocars.  But I’ll get into that a little later… It all started with our first Uber ride to the San Diego Amtrak Station, where we boarded a train and spent […]

Weekend Trip to Ensenada, Mexico

Weekend Trip to Ensenada, Mexico

We could not resist the intrigue of Baja California, and decided to go back and make a weekend of it. We booked a hotel, and left very early on Saturday morning, arriving at the border before 7am. We got through quickly, after a brief bag […]

Day Trip to Baja California, Mexico

Day Trip to Baja California, Mexico

I will admit that crossing the border from San Diego into Tijuana by car was a little bit unnerving for me.  We researched online, and met another full-time family that shared their recent, positive experience traveling back and forth.  After also talking with several family […]
