My trip to Cancun in Mexico was absolutely gorgeous. It has gorgeous beaches (#2), extraordinary pyramids (Chichen Itza and Tulum), and an endless array of natural and tourist attractions. To wrap up my series of posts from my visit to gorgeous Cancun the final post is from a daytrip to the beautiful island Mujeres (Isla Mujeres) with […]

Chichen Itza Mayan ruins Yucatan Mexico-003

Save the best for last. On my last visit to Mexico’s gorgeous Cancun and the Yucatan province, I did a day-trip to see some of the Mayan pyramid ruins. I’m constantly amazed by how well preserved the Mexico pyramid ruins are, and can’t help but stand in awe in view of these lost ancient civilizations and their architecture feats.  The […]

Beaches of Cancun Mexico (17)

I’m really not much of a beach guy, but when you’re faced with beaches like the ones in Cancun, it’s hard to not to be impressed. Cancun beaches are picture perfect, white sand, clear turquoise light blue waters, palm trees, this is as good as it gets. I spent a couple of days walking around […]

Mayan Ruins at Tulum Archeological Site Mexico-044

Mexico is a great place to visit. Happy friendly local, delicious food, vibrant culture, funky music, world-class beaches, it’s just full of magical surprises. But one of the great highlights of Mexico is about the trip back in time to visit lost civilizations and explore ancient cultures that are long gone and no one really knows […]

Ancient canals of Xochimilco  Mexico City (3)

If you’re looking for a funky local experience in Mexico City, then head down south to the ancient canals of Xochimilco to see what the Mexicans made of the ancient Aztec UNESCO heritage water systems. No, it’s not a museum, and you probably won’t get to see much of the history, I’d say the preservation […]

Visions of Cancun Mexico (20)

Cancun isn’t all white sand beaches and clear blue water. Within a couple of hours drive are some world-class pre-Columbia ruins of the Mayan culture, the Chichen Itza Maya Pyramids and the Tulum seaside Walled City. If you’ve never visited Mexican pyramids before, these are bound to blow your mind away, ancient cities spread over […]

Visions of Cancun Mexico (2)

The Cancun area offers some spectacular beaches and sea-related attractions. Booking a flight to another destination (in Canada! from Chicago!), I noticed peculiar pricing that made Cancun Mexico one of the cheapest stopovers. Although it was completely out of the way, I seized the opportunity to go see Cancun as a farewell to Mexico before […]

Museo del Templo Mayor Mexico City (12)

Lots was going on in Mexico City long before the Spanish stormed in. At the center of modern Mexico City at the heart of what’s referred to as the historical center (Zocalo) stood a great Aztec temple. Dating back to 14th century and signifying an important lost culture, the sight is now a UNESCO heritage […]

Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral Zocalo Plaza de la Constitucion (11)

My tour of Mexico City started at the Centro Historio, the historical center district, where many of Mexico’s historical tourist attractions are concentrated. Arriving at my B&B quite late, I set off for a walking tour of the area, first heading towards Zocalo to see the Constitution Plaza and the Metropolitan Cathedral – icons of […]
