We came to San Cristobal last as it was apparently the main gateway to continue our travels south to Guatemala. When we asked our hostel reception about buses to Flores to visit one of the best ruins in the world - Tikal we were advised they don't leave ... Read more >

Puerto Escondido - surf, yoga, hammocks and sunsets

Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015 | Views [598]

We survived the bus ride from hell! Apparently the road from Oaxaca to Puerto Escondido is supposed to be one of the worst. It was very windey (how the hell do you spell that word? Haha) but not as bad as I imagined it to be. We checked in to our hostel ... Read more >

Flight from hell before the hostel from hell - Cancun stopover

Monday, 22 Jun 2015 | Views [341]

I'm not the greatest on planes, usually slightly nervous before boarding and in the air but this flight I had reason to. It was an hour flight from Havana to Cancun and it ended up taking double that time. I like to have the window seat so I can see ... Read more >
