Jolobob: Days with a Maya Family

Una de mis cosas favoritas de trabajar en una escuela son los continuos abrazos. Yo creo que será por su edad, o por nuestra actitud, o quién sabe, la cuestión es que a los niños les encanta abrazar a los voluntarios. Qué poco me costó acostumbrarme a tener siempre un brazo encima de los hombros … Continue reading Jolobob: Days with a Maya Family

Las Lagunas de Montebello y las ruinas de Chinkultic

After a great day at Cascadas del Chiflón, we were thinking about packing and leaving for Guatemala the very next day at dawn. However, Paulina, who had been working all week, told us she would be free for the weekend and felt like doing something nice with her family. The Montebello lakes seemed like the … Continue reading Las Lagunas de Montebello y las ruinas de Chinkultic

Camino a la frontera: Comitán y sus alrededores

During our last days in San Cristóbal, as we were already planning to spend Easter in Guatemala, we kept looking at this point in the map and considering a necessary step before crossing the border.

Canyons, crocodiles and arabesque fountains in Chiapas

Después de haber vivido en una habitación con vistas a uno de los fiordos más espectaculares de Noruega, muchos pensaran que era difícil encontrar un lugar en México que nos encogiera el corazón de forma similar.

Tikal: May the awesomeness be with you

Que Tikal es una trampa para turistas es un hecho. Uno se da cuenta de lo que nosotros bautizamos como 'tikalazo' desde el momento en que comprueba el precio de entrada al parque: Q150, o lo que es lo mismo, 20$ americanos. Teniendo en cuenta que en México el precio base es de 3.5$, duele. … Continue reading Tikal: May the awesomeness be with you

What happens in Flores…

This must stay a secret between us. I mean it. I did a bit of a crazy thing and I promised myself I would never, ever tell anyone. But crazy actions make the best adventures and what is this blog for, but talking about the wonders of reckless travelling? Lo que voy a explicar es … Continue reading What happens in Flores…

Our Magical Mexican Day

It started just like every other day in Tulum. Waking up, getting dressed, having breakfast, talking to people. The only difference was us packing our bags, as we knew we had to keep heading south if we wanted to get to Guatemala in time. Our plan was to arrive at Chetumal, by the border, where we … Continue reading Our Magical Mexican Day

Cobá

We decided to spend most of our second day in Mexico visiting Cobá and we did not regret it. To us, it was the first contact with the jungle, and not only that - the first time we got to climb a Mayan pyramid! We loved it so much we had to talk about it... … Continue reading Cobá

Three Days in Tulum (or Our View On The Riviera Maya)

We spent our first days in Mexico in a little town known as Tulum. We had heard about Cancun being nothing but hotels and beach, so we decided to move on straight from the airport getting a bus to Tulum. On the bus we met an American girl named Kathleen who gave us some tips … Continue reading Three Days in Tulum (or Our View On The Riviera Maya)

Central America: How and Why We Did It

Because this blog is not world famous (yet), not even famous (yet), I think that everyone will know where we are right now. If you don't, however, we're really glad to let you know that we are in a beautiful, amazing country called Guatemala. And I must say that, funnily enough, more people seem to … Continue reading Central America: How and Why We Did It
