Coba – an Incredible Mayan Archaeological Site.

When I heard about Mayan ruins in the jungle I knew I had to take the kids to check it out. What fun to explore & a great opportunity to learn more history not only about the Mayans way of life but their architecture as well. I wasn’t sure where it was exactly… just somewhere […]

Swim with the Turtles in Akumal

This beach deserves a post all on its own. Not only is it gorgeous but you can swim with the Green Sea Turtles & Stingrays for free! If coming from Playa its a 30 min drive on the 307 towards Tulum. You’ll see plenty of signs on the way. But its on the other side […]

We love the beach & we love architecture with interesting history. This is by far the most amazing place where those two aspects come together & you cant help but stand in awe. When you first arrive at the 70 pesos parking area you may be approached by someone from a little information booth. They’ll […]

Monarch Butterflies in El Rosario Michoacán

You don’t have to go far from wherever you are to find something to do… right?! Just down the road (roughly 100km) from Gladstone QLD is the famous town of 1770 where Captain James Cook made his second landing. It’s a small place, but it has a perfect bay for kids to splash & swim […]

Its the Simple Things..

-This is a combined post of the last two places we’ve enjoyed in the great outdoors. So much beauty surrounds us & the best thing about it? Its completely free!- A couple of weeks back we went exploring & came across this little path that led into the bush called Wild Cattle Walk. We didn’t […]

When Life Gives You Lemons – Go Whale Watching!

At a recent routine dental check up my dentist noticed something abnormal in the x-ray with my sinus cavities. That then led me to the GP which then led to a CT scan. Prognosis: Chronic Sinusitis with a polyp in my left nasal cavity. After calling around to all the specialists in town I discovered […]
