My last stop in Mexico was the tiny island of Isla Mujeres with its picture-perfect Caribbean beaches and laid-back vibe. The perfect place for a mini vacation!
I’ve been road tripping all over the Yucatan Peninsula this past week – a trip filled with Mayan ruins, stunning beaches, loads of tacos and crystal clear cenotes!
In my monthly round-ups, I am looking back at my travels over the past four weeks, what went well and what didn’t, and what’s next for me.
Looking for an exquisite place to stay in Playa del Carmen? My recommendation: the wonderful, luxurious beachside Grand Hyatt Resort in the heart of Playa.
We are three days in to a two month housesit on a remote part of the Mexican Riviera Maya. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting in our Notes from the Beach House series to share the highs and lows of one our favorite aspects of long-term travel – Housesitting around the world. Stay tuned!
Our time at the beach house has gotten considerably more intense since our last posting…not least due to a visit from a hurricane called Ernesto.
Mexico was only the second country of our trip, but we (unexpectedly) fell in love with the country and extended our stay there again and again – in the end we spent 88 days there, and traveled more than 3600 kilometers (2370 miles) through the country.
Anyone who has been to Playa del Carmen knows 5th Avenue, or ‘Quinta Avenida’ in Spanish. That is, if you ever needed to use your Spanish while you were in Playa.
We have never shared a picture of ourselves in our Polaroid of the Week series, but this week we’re sharing our wireless office here in Mexico! Now don’t get jealous…
