  • Vamos a la playaSam (Caroline really was going to write this one but she’s a bit sick) Our second overnight bus trip was from Palenque to the west Yucatán beach town of Tulum. It was delayed by a couple of hours, but the better Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Dec 2, 2016
  • Magical Monarch Butterfly Migration (1 Good) One of the reasons we came to Mexico was to have the once in a lifetime experience of witnessing the Monarch Butterfly migration that commenc Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Nov 28, 2016
  • Welcome to the jungleSam It was a long journey descending through the Chiapas mountains to Palenque, an unremarkable town save for the ancient ruins a few kilometres away. They were discovered a couple of hundred years after the town was built; a bit of Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 28, 2016
  • Up to the mountainsSam (Caroline will write one eventually, but she says it's a lot of pressure) We checked out of the hostel on Thursday morning and wandered over to the Jardin Botanico de Oaxaca (Oaxaca Botanical Garden). As the guide explained - in Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 27, 2016
  • Monte Alban and the Zapotecs (1 Good)The city of Monte Alban, about 9km above the valley where Oaxaca lies, is apparently one of the world's great archeological treasures. I'd never heard of it or the Zapotecs, so had quite low expectations of what awaited us Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Nov 15, 2016
  • Mexico City: Taxi Driver from Hell (1 Bad)Our stay in Mexico City didn't go according to plan. The tone was set when we boarded the bus in Oaxaca, having our day packs searched and our bodies patted down for weapons. An official then boarded and Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Nov 17, 2016
  • Levels of Smeginess (1 Bad)Where does the word smeg originate from - was it "Red Dwarf" (now I'm showing my age again)? Anyway, after nine weeks on the road it became clear that decisive action was required to stop the encroaching odour, so Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Nov 8, 2016
  • Holy MoleSam Our first challenge of this blog period was lugging our bags through the Mexico City metro at 8.30am on a Monday. Luckily, it was a public holiday, so we got to the bus station without too much fuss, and headed Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 23, 2016
  • San Juan Chamula: An Intense Experience (1 Good)Having visited some fascinating and interesting churches over the years including the Church of the Nativity, Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Vatican; the two hundred year old Inglesia de San Juan Bautista would seem like an odd choice Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Nov 7, 2016
  • Mexico Part 1Cancun Caught bus to beach, silky sand, warm sea. We built a massive fort out of soft sand. Next I started collecting slimy seaweed. After that we had delicious fruit and pastries. Finally I played a game Posted by edandsuet in Thomas's Great Adventure | Nov 23, 2016
  • Campeche: A Colonial Gem (1 Good)Since starting this journey, I had been disappointed by various UNESCO world heritage sites such as Trinidad in Cuba and other towns or cities, which claim to be the finest examples of colonial architecture. Finally, Campeche is the colonial Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Oct 29, 2016
  • The Mayan Ruins Trail and the Deadly 60 (1 Good)It may seem surprising, but our favourite Mayan ruins so far were Palenque, followed by Coba and then the famous, most restored and visited Chichen Itza. Travelling to Mexico and not visiting Chichen Itza is akin to going to Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Oct 27, 2016
  • Isla Mujeres and Competitive Golf Carting (1 Good?)On paper, Isla Mujeres, a small island off the coast of Cancun reached by a 20 minute ferry ride across the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, would appear to be a tropical paradise; it has a distinctly laid Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Oct 23, 2016
  • Parque de las Palapas, Cancun Centro (1 Good)My favourite place in Cancun was 'Parque de las Palapas' in the evening, when it was crowded with Mexican families. The park is surrounded by food stalls and has a central stage which was always hosting some kind of Posted by edandsuet in 2 Good, 2 Bad | Oct 21, 2016
  • Piñatas, painters and pyramidsSam On Saturday morning, our delightful host Jorge took us out on his weekend shop. His 'short walk' (of around an hour and a half) took in some city sights and ended at a huge market. The Mercado de Flores had everything, Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 20, 2016
  • Low Impact TourismThis was really a new term for me- one that I just learned a few weeks ago, but that has since made its presence (or lack-thereof) very obvious. A picture from the New York Times of tourists posing with sea Posted by UnMejorHOY in Rice and Beans, Alternative Travel | Nov 19, 2016
  • Murals, Mayans and Mariachi in Mexico CitySam ¡Hola amigos! We've had two days in La Ciudad de México now, and while it's extremely busy and noisy, the pros outweigh the cons. The museums are world-class, the people welcoming, the architecture impressive, and the street food amazeballs. Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 18, 2016
  • And we're offAvid followers of this blog (and there are countless numbers of you) may recall that our last trip ended not too long ago. Indeed, it was barely ten months. And yet here we are again, off on what will hopefully Posted by samoline in Samoline 2015 and '16 | Nov 17, 2016
  • Our first real blunder.. We have spent so much time researching this trip and trying to anticipate what is to come but today are faced with the reality that you can't believe everything you read on the internet.. I'm sure this seems obvious Posted by JEK in Travelling with a teen | Nov 7, 2016
  • Cancun to Playa del CarmenCancun is exactly what we need and Emily, wanting some time to herself is kind enough to give us leave to set out on a date night. Pizza ordered for her we head downtown to find the cheesiest Mexican hot Posted by JEK in Travelling with a teen | Nov 7, 2016
  • Cancun - not so pedestrian after all..After an extremely turbulent red eye flight we arrive in Cancun feeling in need of a hot shower and sleep. I am intensly aware that in the coming months we will have many more grueling travel experiences some probably more Posted by JEK in Travelling with a teen | Nov 4, 2016
  • Studying in México I have spent 174 days in Mexico, most of them in Pachuca. Pachuca is appr. 90km from Mexico City and the capital of the state of Hidalgo, one of the poorest in the country. It's indigenous people are the Otomi Posted by nerikimmera in Diving into the World | Sep 4, 2016
