  • Zona Dorado We started the day with a plan to go shopping. By the time we were finished breakfast it was 11:30 and we decided it was too late to go. Neither of us was particularly upset about postponing the trip. Instead Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Nov 6, 2022
  • Take me out to the ballgame We couldn’t wait for our day’s activities. Unfortunately our plan, the ballgame, started at 8 pm- late for us! So, we did some chores, which included 2 roundtrips of slightly over a kilometre each way to have our laundry done. Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Nov 4, 2022
  • Diá de los MuertosNovember 2 is an important date in Mexico, Diá de los Muertos or for us anglophones Day of the Dead, as I understand understand a period when the veil to the spirit realm is thin and the spirits of adults Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Nov 4, 2022
  • All in the name of a good cup of coffee!I’m a fussy coffee drinker. The resort coffee is not to my taste. It’s too hot, weak, and bitter at the same time. I think they boil the grounds for several hours and then pour the boiling liquid into these Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Nov 2, 2022
  • Hitting my holiday groove!I’ve felt a little out of sorts this holiday: I have to keep on reminding myself that it’s only the second day. But today I think I’ve found my rhythm! It doesn’t involve getting up before 6 or having 2-hour Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Nov 1, 2022
  • A beautiful startI couldn’t wait to start the day, and as often happens on holidays I was up before the dawn. There is nothing more beautiful than watching the sun rise in the morning.

  • Mazatlan on our way!I had a hard time getting excited about this holiday; I had so much to do before I could leave! I didn’t want to count the days as it just made me too anxious. It’s been months like this but Posted by kwtraumer in Mazatlan | Oct 30, 2022
  • Day 1 Shortly after arriving at Guadalajara airport, a member from Global Medical Projects (GMP) picked us up at our accommodation and took us on a tour of Guadalajara. We were guided all around the city and shown some historical sites alongside Posted by hollycopley99 in Working as a Paramedic in Guadalajara | Aug 10, 2022
  • Coming to a CloseWe're finally home & it was a hell of a (still-in-a-pandemic) road trip! While it certainly had its ups & downs (thankfully, mostly ups), we got to see some spectacular places in a beautiful country with such a rich history, Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 31, 2022
  • Last BitOn our way back to Guadalajara, we stopped in the lakeside town of Ajijic. It sits on Mexico's largest lake, Lago de Chapala, and is bordered by lush green hills. Sadly, the lake is fairly polluted, so we didn't see Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 31, 2022
  • UruapanOur final ancient ruins of the trip were in Tingambato - a small site (as excavated so far) that predates the Tarascans in the region (450-900 CE). The most interesting finding (sadly not on the tour) were two underground tombs Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 28, 2022
  • Balloon FestWe rolled into our Pátzcuaro hotel just before a rainstorm started &, coming from L.A., I have to admit the sound & smell of rain was most welcomed. 😁 (Nick Note: We have been very lucky with rain our whole Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 28, 2022
  • Flying HighThe NW region of the state of Michoacán was, in pre-Hispanic times, dominated by the Purépecha culture (now called Tarascan). They were superior in metallurgy to the Aztecs and, as such, we're never conquered by them. They controlled their own Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 28, 2022
  • MoreliaTo break up the day's drive, Nick wanted to stop at Bioparque Estrella - a small zoo/amusement park for little kids. They had a safari van ride through a large open area, where they had lots of ungulates & ostrich Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 25, 2022
  • Hiking into a CraterWe drove up the 15,000 ft extinct volcano Nevado de Toluca (Mexico's 4th highest peak) to hike down into its crater and walk around the crater lakes. Thankfully it wasn't too cold or windy but I was definitely the altitude! Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 23, 2022
  • City on a HillSadly, I have not been impressed with the guided cave tours here in Mexico - all the guides do is walk at the front of the group (meaning no one in back can hear) and describe arbitrary shapes in the Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 23, 2022
  • Pyramid of QuetzalcóatlWe drove through the town of Cuernavaca to see the Palacio de Cortes - built by the conquistador in 1535 atop the ruins of the Aztec temple he destroyed to be his medieval fortress/home. It was turned into a prison Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 23, 2022
  • Wild Fires SuckWe headed into the pueblo magico Tepoztlán to see the Tepozteco Pyramid. Tepozteco was built between the 12th & 14th centuries to honor Tepoztēcatl - Aztec god of pulque (& drunkenness). The pyramid was built about 2000 ft above the Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 22, 2022
  • Festival WeekendWe were lucky enough to arrive in Oaxaca during the kick off parade for the Guelaguetza later in the month. Guelaguetza is a beautifully rich & significant festival of local cultures. The state of Oaxaca is home to one of Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 22, 2022
  • Mexico CityAfter almost two years without travelling I am finally back at it. My first big trip after Covid-19 is to Mexico. I have been to Mexico once before, but I have only been to the Yuacatan Peninsula. This will be Posted by Oiesof in Sofies World | Jul 21, 2022
  • U-TurnWe've reached the point on our trip where we've stopped traveling south & are headed back in the direction of Guadalajara (from where we'll depart for home in 2 weeks). We headed into Chiapa de Corzo - an area that's been Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 17, 2022
  • Shopping SpreeWe headed to a set of caves just outside of San Cristobal de las Casas, nestled in a pine forest. Having just seen several truly impressive caves, the Grutas de San Cristobal were kinda meh but we were able to Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 17, 2022
  • Bat Cave!Today was another waterfall travel day. (Nick Note: I am going to see if I can add waterfalls to my daily commute if I return to on-site work post-COVID.) We started at Misol-Ha waterfall (35m high) and were lucky enough Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 17, 2022
  • PalenqueWe had a brief overnight in Villahermosa between Veracruz and Palenque to break up the drive. We got into town on a Sunday and most things were closed - took us a LONG time to find a restaurant that was Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 17, 2022
  • Back to the BeginningThe half-way point in our trip takes us to Veracruz by way of Orizaba. Pico de Orizaba is Mexico's highest peak at 18,400 ft! We got a glimpse of its snow-covered peak on the drive over. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/1069544/bf6cbd70-00a2-11e Posted by fcat461 in MadMex Road Trip | Jul 10, 2022
