Isla Mujeres: Sunset of our Mexicadventure in the “Sunrise of Mexico”

Legacy  I wrote this article extremely sad! Sad because I knew this was the last destination of our BRO-ventures. This timeless saying is oh so true. “All good things must come to an end” I have to say, and I’m not bragging or anything here *cough* but Romain and I plan some amazing trips! Rome, Italy Barcelona Croatia  Capri Nicaragua Tulum  Just to name a few! We embark on ...

Boogie All Night Long in Playa del Carmen

After spending the early afternoon diving and snorkeling in the underworld of Dos Ojos Cenote, we arrived in Playa del Carmen right before sunset. We found a small city parking next to Parque Los Fundadores. As soon as we started walking the streets, it instantly hit us that Playa del Carmen was closer to Miami than Tulum, with tourists aplenty and big, loud American shops and fast food franchises. Playa, ...

Tulum: Chill Beach Paradise at a Cost

We arrived in Tulum as night was falling. Jarelle and I, balling hard on virtual crypto mega profits, had decided to book one of those overpriced eco resorts right in the protected Tulum beach reserve. Tulum was “discovered” by hippies in the 80’s, who slept in cheap beach huts with minimal to no amenities. In the history and context of exploration, “discovered” would mean when white people first arrived ...

Coba, Mexico: Children of the World, Life Lessons and New Friends

The Pure Innocence of Children I want to start this article off on a lighter note. I wanna talk about "kids": they are so awesome and precious! I remember the day I gave my two-year-old little brother a Skittle for the 1st time. It was as if his world lit up! I could literally see his brain processing this new flavor (aka sugar) in his head, I laughed so hard that day! This stands out to me because I ...

Channeling Our Inner Indiana Jones at the Ek Balam Archeological Site

Our first morning in Mexico had already brought its lot of exciting wonders. If you've read our article on Chichen Itza and Ik Kil, then you know we got to experience some worthy tourist blockbusters. At 1pm on that day, we drove back the 45 min to Valladolid and had a quick lunch of leftover foods at our AirBnB. Then, around 2:30pm, we drove the opposite direction, 45 min straight north of Valladolid. What ...

Chichen Itza & Cenote Ik Kil: Seven and a Half Wonders of the World

2 min read Lesson Learned I have an unhealthy habit of NOT researching the places I travel to until AFTER I visit the destinations. We live in a world where we live through our phones so I cherish those in the moment "WOW, I can't believe I am here right now moments." Like visiting the 1700-year-old Diocletian Palace in Split, Croatia. Or even the Eternal city of Rome, Italy There's so much, ...

Exploring the Wonders of Valladolid, Mexico: Colonial Architecture, Cenotes X’Kekén, Samula and Samaal

Ask your friends who have been to Yucatán where they’ve visited, and they’ll most likely say Cancún, Chichen Itza pyramid and cenote Ik Kil. One is the spring break destination par excellence and the others postcard-perfect tourist magnets. Large and modern highways take you from one to the other uninterrupted, in air-conditioned tour buses. But hidden in the dense jungle and little pueblos are other ...

9 Things We Discovered in Nicaragua! Should you go?

 1. The Food Personally, I ate more food in Nicaragua than any other country I’ve traveled to before, the reason why? The food is SO CHEAP and GOOD! My favorite meal was at Gigante Bay Hostel! I remember it like it was yesterday! Romain and I ate banana pancakes, three whole sunny side up eggs, fried plantains with cinnamon on top, fried halloumi cheese, Gallo Pinto, slices of avocado and a mixed bowl of ...

Surfing – Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

2 min read My 1st Time Surfing Surfing has always been a joy for me! Probably one of the most mentally challenging sports I’ve ever done. Why? Surfing covers all aspects of life if you think about it. It tests your patience with each and every passing wave, as you have to relentlessly wait for the perfect wave to ride. Surfing tests your physical strength - you HAVE to be in shape to surf. Your ...

Playa Gigante & San Juan del Sur: Two Views of a Beach Day

Playa Gigante: sunsets and relaxation Three volcanoes in our Nicaragua journey (...and we had skipped two for lack of time), we had planned the final days to be all about relaxation at the beach. So after narrowly managing to board a small ferry off the island of Ometepe, we drove 45 min west to Playa Gigante. There are about a dozen small beach towns like these on the Southwestern coastline of ...
