Mexico and Tequila!

So our last adventure brought us back to Mexico yet again, this time testing out the waters off Mexico’s western coast and famous hotspot Cabo San Lucas. Arriving in Cabo is definitely a gorgeous site with the lively town straight ahead and Lover’s Beach to your side, we couldn’t wait to start exploring! We wanted to start Cabo off with a party, so we asked to be pointed in the direction of Squid Row, a well-known party …

Playa Del Carmen

A totally opposite town than it’s larger sister city, Cancun, Playa del Carmen is much more quaint! You won’t find the hustle and bustle of city buses and noisy traffic here, these cute cobblestone roads are the perfect destination to get a little of everything. We only had 2 days in town, the first which was spent mostly at a beach front bar/restaurant, Mamacita’s. Playa was hosting an annual techno/house music conference so the beaches were packed …

Day 7: Final day of Sea of Cortez cruise

ABOARD THE SAFARI ENDEAVOUR—I had mixed feelings when the skyline of La Paz came into view this morning. It meant that our cruise in the isolated reaches of the Sea of Cortez was over, and we had one more day and night on board. It’s so easy to become attached to members of the crew—a wonderful group of talented and caring young people—and to new friends from far-flung places that we’d probably never see again. And our …

Day 6: Rough seas lead to an unexpected stop at the lovely Ensenada Grande

ABOARD THE SAFARI ENDEAVOUR—The plan for today was to anchor off Los Islotes (tiny islands off the tip of Isla Partida) and spend the morning with the California sea lion colony living there. The crew had told us the dark brown males can weigh up to 600 pounds, and do a lot of posturing–baring their teeth and looking threatening. The lighter-colored females, weighing about 200 pounds, feed at night and would be sleeping when we approached the …

Mayan ruins on Cozumel an intriguing glimpse into ancient civilization

COZUMEL – The Mayans came from outer space. Or the Mayans were visited by aliens who shared extraterrestrial intelligence to create an advanced civilization on earth. “Some people believe that,” says guide Alex Cab. “But neither one of those things is true.” Nor is it true that Mayans no longer exist. “I’m a Mayan,” Alex says. “You can’t say that the Mayans are all dead because I’m still here. I am of mixed blood but I am …

Tulum is one of Riviera Maya’s most popular excursions

Tulum, the walled city built by the Maya on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast around 1200 A.D., has become so popular it now contains two barriers. The first is the old stone wall enclosing the city on three sides. According to archaeologists, these were constructed not for defensive purposes but to prevent the masses from entering the sacred confines where religious and magical ceremonies were held. Tulum recently added another barrier, this one of rope, to keep the masses …
