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 ...

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 ...

Masaya Volcano: Entrance to the Underworld

This morning, the lock screen of Windows computer (yes, Windows, don’t give me any shit Apple fanboys) showed me a picture of Erta Ale, an active basaltic volcano in Ethiopia. You can go to the edge, but the volcano is situated in the Afar Depression, a badland desert area and one of the toughest place on Earth. So if you don’t want to caravan on a camel’s back for a week under 50°C heat, but still want ...
