The Riviera Maya - Tulum

Monday, 23 Dec 2013 | Views [236]

After the disappointment of Chichen Itza, Tulum certainly made up for it. Wow.. the Riveria Maya as it is referred to. This is the type of place that could make your easily rip up your return flight ticket and never go home. Seriously, the turquoise ... Read more >


Chichen Itza - One of the new 7 wonders of the world

Monday, 23 Dec 2013 | Views [238]

Yes this the largest site we have seen, when compared to others and yes is has some the best preserved ruins in Mexico, however it left us feeling very underwhelmed and somewhat disappointed. This is probably due to the fact that the site has been ... Read more >


The Yucatan Peninsula - Merida

Monday, 23 Dec 2013 | Views [275]

An early morning start and an eight hour bus trip from Palenque to Merida on the Yucatan peninsula. This one was more civilised, a first class bus with American movies in Spanish with not subtitles. I've got to say that buses in Mexico are a pretty ... Read more >


On the ancient Mayan route - Palenque

Monday, 23 Dec 2013 | Views [252]

After the excitement of our collectivo ride, we finally arrived at Palenque where we were seemingly dropped of on the outskirts of this town. Thankfully local taxis are abundant and we were delivered to our hotel. Not the best one we have stayed in, ... Read more >

Life in Mexico

Tuesday, 17 Dec 2013 | Views [232]

On the surface life in Mexico looks hard when compared with daily life in Australia. Whether you look in large cities or the small rural villages. Houses and buildings are of a completely different standard comparatively speaking. It appears that ... Read more >


Frontera Corozal (pronounced Fron-Terra Coro-zal) to Palenque (Pronounced Pa-len-cay)

Sunday, 15 Dec 2013 | Views [1289]

This leg of the trip was something completely different. Up to now we had been using a mix of taxis, private cars, first class buses and air travel to get around however, to get from Frontera Corozal to Palenque we had no choice but to use a Collectivo ... Read more >


I guess we are not in Kansas anymore, Toto!!!

Sunday, 15 Dec 2013 | Views [302]

This afternoon we took a 40 min river boat ride to the ancient Mayan city of Yaxchilan (pronounced Yaks-chi-lan) on the Rio Usumacinta (U-suma-cin-ta river). The Rio Usumacinta forms the border between Mexico and Guatemala and on our way up in the launch ... Read more >

A real change of pace and scenery now as we step off the beaten path and into the wilds of the Mexican Lancandon (Lan-can-don) jungle. First stop is Las Guacamayas (Las Gwaaka-mayas) which means "The Scarlet Macaw". This is an eco tourist lodge run by ... Read more >

A week in San Cristobal

Sunday, 15 Dec 2013 | Views [302]

Today we flew from Oaxaca (pronounced Wah-haka) to Tuxtla (pronounced Toost-La) ,via Mexico City, apparently all air flights are either to or from Mexico City so the easy concept of going from Oaxaca to Tuxtla is not that easy. All in all it was a very ... Read more >


Mexico City

Monday, 25 Nov 2013 | Views [149]

Hola! We're in Mexico City! Spent the day in the Centro Historico checking out the Palacio Nacional, Templo Mayor and just wandering the streets - along with half the population of the city!  Enchiladas for breakfast this morning.  A bit spicier ... Read more >
