    Playa del Carmen Things to Do

    So, I know what you may be thinking, I hit the century mark on countries and I go a little soft, perhaps a bit too trusting. However, rest assured, no unnecessary risks were taken. My sweet date and I walked down to a well-lit, crowded part of the beach in the heart of the city where several locals and tourists were gathered to simply get a...

  • Bosque de Chapultepec

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Mexico City Things to Do

    The most extensive park of Mexico is very popular among the locals and is a great place for a weekend stroll. There is lots to see and do here: among the main attractions are the monument dedicated to the "ninos heroes" (young soldiers who commited suicide after Mexico surrendered to the United States invasion forces in 1848); the Castillo...

  • The Arch

    This natural arch is Cabo's most famous landmark. It's only accesible by boat so you can either take a sightseeing or whale watching tour or rent a kayak and paddle out here. Right by the arch is a colony of sea lions.

    3 out of 5 stars

    Tijuana Things to Do

    avenida revolicion is central tijuanas main street , it is roughly 15 blocks long and is the street most frequented by tourists in the city although it had many more tourists before the drug violence scared away the tourists , the street is also busy at nights on weekends because of all the baars , it is easy to get from the border by bus taxi or...

  • Tulum Ruins

    Tulum Things to Do

    Tulum is probably best visited in the morning before all the tourist buses show up and before the scorching sun starts beating down on you since most of it is uncovered. It's hard to find official information about anything in the Yucatan but I believe it's open from 8am to 5pm and I'm sure it currently costs 59 pesos or $6USD as of December 2014....

  • Sightseeing

    Mazatlán Things to Do

    We went to the Mazatlan with some friends that we have made in Mazatlan. It was a little more expensive than we thought it might be. We walked around the main area and saw all the fish that were in the tanks. We also found out for a additional fee,you can go into the large tanks with the fish,that included sharks! We were given a ticket when we...

  • Chankanaab

    Isla Cozumel Things to Do

    We arrived in Cozumel on a Monday and wanted to test out or dive gear before going diving on Tuesday. My parents had been to Chankanaab many years ago and don't recall paying anything to access the beach. After paying for a cab to get there, we discovered that it has been turned into an overpriced tourist trap. It was $16US per person to get in the...

  • Cola de Caballo

    Monterrey Things to Do

    Cascada Cola de Caballo literally means "Horse Tail Falls", describing how it looks from a distance. It's a pretty waterfall, and it's wonderful to see that natural elements are preserved in Mexico. The 30-peso entrance fee, however, is the first tipoff that this isn't going to be a Canadian-style adventure so much as a US-style marketing...

  • Cliff Divers

    Acapulco Things to Do

    We were fortunate enough to get the perfect seat for the show. The cliff Divers are neat to watch and the show was not too long. If you are in Acapulco and have a chance to see them I would not pass it up in a second. After the show the divers will be standing on the ramp that takes you to the street signing autographs and taking pictures. Do not...

  • La Bufadora

    Ensenada Things to Do

    There is enough to do in Ensenada to stay several days but make sure to save time for a visit to La Bufadora. After the geyser subsides, take a look down the cliff to see what causes the ocean to shoot up so high? Watching the waves crash against the cliffs can be mesmerizing, but the resulting geyser is better than a wake-up call.

    Loreto Things to Do

    Cruising the rocky coast of the islands in the Sea of Cortes just a few miles off the coast of Loreto in a Glass Bottom Boat by Loreto Coastal Expeditions provides a completely different view of the sea life. Tim and Brandon Yarborough have created a wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon watching the sea life from above. You do have an...

  • Street Life

    Oaxaca de Juárez Things to Do

    Stroll in the streets of Oaxaca and taking photograph of street vendors can be fun because they are so many of them. Make sure ask permission before you take a shot. The vendor would appreciate more if you buy their food. I did try the Tamales, empanadas and steam corn in a cup it’s more like a desert because it was sweet but not sure of the name....

  • Old Town

    Puerto Vallarta Things to Do

    Old Town is definitely the place to be. You will feel like you are really in Mexico, unlike some the places with walled off beach areas to the north. Why go to Mexico if you don't want to experience anything Mexican? Our favorite places to hang out on the beach are Epoca and Cuates y Cuetas. At Epoca, you can sit under a palapa in the sand and have...

  • Chichen Itza

    Cancún Things to Do

    It´s a couple of hours by car from Cancun, but I think that it's impossible to skip its visit. Chichen-Itza it's popular worldwide, and it would be silly not to visit it, being so close. So, have swim in the early morning (great!) visit Chichen-Itza, and have another late swim to receive the night (even better)

    Mexico City Things to Do

    I was not sure what all I wanted to do in Mexico City. I did know one thing which I found via the internet, they have Pyramids.

I was picked up by my tour guide, Gersom and off we went with only one other person, Carolino from...

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    This is a good place to eat, drink and play at the beach. Away from the crowds of Medano Beach at the east end of the beach. When on the highway coming into Cabo turn left on Blvd. Constituyentes and you will see the free public parking area on the left at the end of the street. I like this place because the parking is easy, the have shaded tables,...

    Tijuana Things to Do

    Haha, when you pass the U.S. - Mexico border in San Ysidro you will see - look at my picture - quite another world: a lot of mainly old looking cars - taxis painted in yellow and the dark-skinned (hmm... at least darker than me) men - drivers asking you to take a taxi to Tijuana. Add a little chaotic traffic and street vendors. This is Mexico!...

    Tulum Things to Do

    Heading south from the Temple of the Wind God, there is a small beach where the water looked quite inviting. If you are enjoying a leisurely day, bring along your swimsuit and go for a dip! I'm pretty sure access to the beach is free, since they are only charging $6USD to visit the ruins, security at the site doesn't seem all that high of a...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Monterrey Things to Do

    In the middle of Monterrey's modern day concrete jungle, the Obispado is to be found perched on a hill overlooking the city. Being the former episcopal residence, it is now transformed into a museum commemorating important historical events and personalities. It is an example of brilliant colonial architecture. One can also walk (or drive) up the...

  • Bahia de Conception

    Loreto Things to Do

    I highly recommend renting a car (or better yet a convertible Jeep!) and driving north to Bahia de Conception (Conception Bay), about 90 kilometers north of Loreto and just south of the unique village of Mulage. We stopped at Playa la Perla (Pearl Beach). There will be a very small sign on the side of the road right at the intersection. Drive down...

    Oaxaca de Juárez Things to Do

    Iglesia de Santo Domingo is an impressive Church in Oaxaca worth visiting. It is a Catholic Church of Dominican order. It took 200 years to construct. Restoration began in 1993 and completed in 1999 and the interior is decorated with more than 60 sheets of 23.5-karat gold leaf and filled with paintings and statues from the best artist of that time...

  • Boat Cruises

    Puerto Vallarta Things to Do

    It sounds cheesy but it was a really great experience. If you want to have a "real" drink on the boatride there just ask for it. They have some snacks on the boat to tide you over. Don't buy the bugspray at the Marina, bring your own or don't worry about it. Be hungry for dinner, the food is really great. It is a very romantic trip. After the...

  • Isla Mujeres

    Cancún Things to Do

    Isla Mujeres allowed two programs - one by day, mainly consisting in snorkeling or diving -, and the one that we made. We had to choose, snorkel was something that only some of us would do, and we had already done somewhere else, and that's why we choose the nightly program. However, I was told that the island is great for fish, so the program...

Our guide, which spoke perfect English, explained Isla Cozumel's history and Mayan culture...

    Fight that sinking sensation which you may be feeling if you have read about the slowly disappearing Mexico City by floating on the ancient canals at Xochimilco. Each weekend this World Heritage Site transforms into fiesta-filled waterways packed with party boats, musicians, and marimba players.

We booked this excursion through our resort and find it...

    The Paseo de Santa Lucia (also called the River Walk, in English) is a charming way to get from the museum area to the very large Parc Fundidora.

Near the museum end there are some riverside tables and restaurants and there is a...

    Loreto Things to Do

    Tabor Canyon is a "hike." Starting off in an arroyo full of rocks, it quickly narrows to about 20-30 meters and the boulders get larger and larger. The hike is quite strenuous and not for those that are not in shape or have health issues. There are a few locations where you must traverse cliffs using narrow toe and hand holds and some very large...
