An Adventurer’s Guide to Tulum
My first experience in Tulum happened completely by accident. I was driving south of Cancun back to my home in Mexico City when I came upon this little town near the beach. It was much quieter, but just as beautiful as its neighbors up to the north, Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, so I decided a weekend detour would be just the thing I needed before I got back home.

Even though Cancun is one of the more popular destinations in Mexico, there are still plenty of people who have never made the trek over to the Yucatán Peninsula and to this vibrant and exciting city.

Puerto Vallarta – Full of Mexican Culture and Heritage
Puerto Vallarta – Full of Mexican Culture and Heritage
There is something so special about Puerto Vallarta -- a resort city located near the Pacific Ocean and nearly 550 miles away from Mexico City. Puerto Vallarta is the place where I love to escape city life and embrace the cultural and historic charm of the country in one space. The people are so welcoming and the ambience lets you take a step back in time to the beautiful cobblestone streets and energetic town squares that make it one of my favorite places to visit.

For those who want to see and appreciate history and vast culture of Mexico, Oaxaca is the place to go. While you’ll find many influences and historic aspects throughout many of Mexico’s cities, perhaps Oaxaca is considered to be at the top of the list. This visually appealing city seems to still have it all from colonial buildings, to ancient ruins and Baroque churches beautifully surrounded by modern architecture.

West Coast Road Trip: Where Should You Stop?
West Coast Road Trip: Where Should You Stop?
Over the summer, my friend and I wanted to take a road trip, but we weren’t sure where we wanted to go because neither one of us had a lot of time to spare. He was headed a new job in Brazil and it was one of our final chances to get together before he left Mexico. Out of nowhere, I came up with the suggestion that we should take a road trip all the way up the West Coast to Seattle.

A Resident’s Guide to Mexico City
Growing up and living in Mexico City for my entire life, I might be a little biased when it comes to writing about all of the great things that you’ll find in the city. It’s one of the biggest capital cities throughout the world and is a prime destination for international travelers coming to Mexico. While I am aware that Mexico City does have its negative publicity from time to time, it’s still a great city that’s filled with culture and plenty of Mexican heritage.
