Adios to Swine Flu invested Mexico!

Tuesday, 12 May 2009 | Views [423]

We spend our final 2 days in Mexico on the beach, soaking up the magaritas and marvelling in Rich's new found ability to tan. Finally! It's all been a bit bizarre, with the swine flu - empty towns, closed restaurants, and worried ... Read more >

The American couple from yesterday's dive are back at the dive shop and the four of us will go out today. The dive instructor is really nice and has gone through everything with Alicia to help her with her ear problems. He's suggested a ... Read more >

Open Water

Saturday, 9 May 2009 | Views [586]

We get up early to move to a new hotel and prepare for our dive. We've got four more days in Mexico which gives us plenty of time to complete the last two dives of our SCUBA course, and then chill out before we leave. I'm a bit anxious ... Read more >

Chichen Itza

Friday, 8 May 2009 | Views [410]

Playa del Carmen is a ghost town. The first day we were here, you could look down the street and see hundreds of people walking around. Now there are only handfuls of "brave" tourists. Again this works in our favor and we are able ... Read more >

Tulum or not Tulum? That is the question...

Thursday, 7 May 2009 | Views [570]

We leave our luxurious confines at the all-inclusive resort - we've spent enough time here. Because of all these tourist-site closures, we've essentially been restricted to the same area for the past two weeks. Not a bad life, true - but ... Read more >

All-Inclusive Heaven

Thursday, 30 Apr 2009 | Views [580]

So what do you do when swine flu shuts down all of Mexico? Well you go to the beach. At least that hasn't been infected yet. But wait, let's think about this for a second. Tourists are cancelling thier vacations, no-one wants to come here ... Read more >

Sneezing pigs are ruining our trip

Monday, 27 Apr 2009 | Views [657]

The swine flu crisis is hitting new heights, the news reports that hundreds of people have died in Mexico City. We've even seen a few people in the streets wearing masks. Now we're starting to take it more seriously. We're now ... Read more >

No more Mujeres

Sunday, 26 Apr 2009 | Views [453]

Another windy day and our final two dives are cancelled. This is really annoying because we'd already decided that we'd leave the island today regardless of whether or not we'd finished the course. I guess we'll just have to complete it ... Read more >

Is there wind underwater?

Friday, 24 Apr 2009 | Views [380]

Today we are meant to have our first two open water dives but the weather isnt co-operating and even though it's blue skies, we're told its too windy to SCUBA. What??? It doesn't even look very windy. How does the wind effect us under the water anyway? ... Read more >

Under da Sea

Wednesday, 22 Apr 2009 | Views [356]

We've been contemplating the idea of learning to SCUBA dive for a while and we know it's relatively cheap to do in Mexico. So we go speak to a couple of dive shops. We like dive instructor Andreas and his band of merry men the best, so it's a done deal.... Read more >

Isla Mujeres - The Island of Women

Tuesday, 21 Apr 2009 | Views [1358]

Time to leave la ciudad de Mexico. We have decided our route around Mexico will start in Cancun, and then we'll make our way back through the various sights before flying out of Mexico City in four weeks time. There's loads to see, including Chichen ... Read more >

Mexico City doesn't scare me!

Sunday, 19 Apr 2009 | Views [580]

So what's the best time to arrive in one of the world's most dangerous cities? 11.30pm? Probably not, but we like a challenge. Let's just hope the drug cartels got an early night. Our taxi makes its way slowly through the inexplicable midnight traffic, ... Read more >
