Jul 10, 2019 - My Trip to Mexico and Panama

I just got back from a great month traveling throughout Mexico and Central America. I met up with some good friends from high school and absolutely loved every second of our trip. I speak Spanish and look Hispanic, so that should be taken into account when you consider my experiences but I just wanted to pass on some tips in case you guys find yourselves in a rut! 1. Yucatan, Mexico Our first stop in the Yucatan was Cancun. We stayed a few nights in Cancun but I don't recommend doing that at all. Unless you're staying in some fancy resort,...

Sep 3, 2018 - Rainy Day in Cancun

We woke up to rain today which finally lowered the temperature. We ate lunch back at the food stalls at Parque de Las Palapas and took shelter from the storm at the indoor-outdoor bar where we found $1 margaritas last night. For dinner we tried Pericos but there were no other customers to share the saddle bar stools so we had one margarita and moved on. We tried La Parilla complete with a mariachi band but LindaRose was looking for BBQ ribs we thought we'd seen on their website. Not on the menu. Finally we settled on Labnah, a charming...

Mexico and Cuba 2018

Apr 1, 2017 - Free day in Cancun

The alarm woke us at 5:00am for our transfer to LA airport to begin the next stage of our trip. Due to the early start it only took about 40 minutes to get to the airport and to our United flight to Mexico. We had a leisurely breakfast and the settled down for the two hour wait till boarding. As it happened we almost missed our plane because we were dutifully waiting for them to call our boarding group and they didn't. Eventually I looked up at a TV screen and our boarding group 5 was shown but no announcement had been made. The plane was...

Dec 30, 2016 - Colombia – Bogota – via Cancun

Vancouver to Cancun And we are off on our next adventure to Colombia. Our departure from Vancouver went smoothly (although EXTREMELY early) and we arrived in Cancun late in the afternoon. Our flight itinerary included a forced overnight in Cancun, oh darn 𯘄. It is a balmy 26C with the occasional spurts of tropical rain to add to the humidity. Great for the skin! We arrived at our airport hotel quickly, and before too long had a margarita and a cerveza in hand. Welcome cocktail finished we ventured out to find authentic Mexican food in the...

Apr 13, 2016 - Cancun Aeropuerto

It's about 500 kilometers from Campeche to Cancun so I arranged to return to Valladolid for our last night, leaving just a 2 hour drive the next day to reach the airport in Cancun. The drive went easily. A few stops along the way so the Policia could check us out. Didn't have to pay a single "mordita" the whole trip. Back to Casa Hipil. The Aussies went shopping and I caught up on the journal. Later we went out to dinner at El Meson del Marques, the local Colonial Hotel and hot spot. Another excellent meal. And the usual round of tequila...

Loved Me Cancun, spent most days on the beach, Patrick upgraded to a beautiful ocean front balcony room and it was wonderful! As always, loved the Tequileria, spent a morning at Isla Murjeres and found a great little tucked away INN on the island with the best pina coladas! Casa Bella was the name, owned by a cute American woman named Ashley and her husband. they built it 14 years ago. Went clubbing w the crazy group in downtown Cancun~Patrick was offered cocaine in the mens room! ugh!

Jan 8, 2016 - extra legroom!

We welcomed our renters about 4pm Friday, 08 January and ready or not our 2016 holiday trek began. A trip over to visit Ryan in Alberni for Friday and Saturday nights started us off in style then down to Victoria for an evening of fun and frivolity with "the gang of 8" at Lari & Gayles house. Lari dropped us at the ferry so we and our backpacks took the easy jaunt across to stay with Erin and Laura in Yaletown. A 4:15 AM departure to catch our flight south brought out the best in Donna as she chatted pleasantly with the cabbie and there...

Dec 19, 2015 - From Ruins to Chillin' on the Beach

After leaving Izamal, the plan was Chichén Itzá, then on to Paamul to enjoy the beach. Love the plan ... and it worked like a charm ... Izamal to Chichén Itzá Chichén Itzá is on the outskirts of the town of Piste. Really, there isn't much there except a small pueblo, loads of restaurants that cater to busloads of tourists and souvenir shops. Oh, and a bull ring. Right across from where we were camped. And, there was a bullfight that night. You know where this is going, don't you!! We stayed at the Piramide Inn which is owned by a lovely...

Somehow they let Rachel safely thought security and our little adventure was over.....until next time!!

Sep 13, 2015 - Week 6- Meeting Miss Smith

So after a long days cleaning, washing clothes and travelling across Mexico I came across a rather tired and slightly delirious Rachel at Cancun Airport! We skipped straight onto a bus to Playa Del Carmen and headed to the hostel that I had booked only to be told we didn't have a reservation. After 30 minutes of jumbled Spanglish and sweat dripping down my back they said 'well we have a private room for two- would you like that?' Grrrrr I had forgotten quite how random this travelling malarkey was - I'm fairly sure that was the room I had...
