Frida Kahlo

We visited Casa Azul (Blue House) in Mexico City. The cost to enter was 80 pesos pp ($6.70 aud). Kids 5 & under are free. If you want to take photos you have to pay an extra 60 pesos ($5.00 aud) . From here on out are quotes or information that is on the walls of […]

Cost of Living in Mexico

Playa del Carmen is the 3rd most expensive city in Mexico so that should be taken into account when planning your trip. This is a rough estimate depending on the exchange rate & is in Australian dollars. Housing: 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3 pools, a park, security + maintenance fees. $1,135.00 per month.

Learn Spanish in Mexico + the Best Salbutes in Town

I had two experiences learning Spanish in Playa del Carmen. The first two months were at Solexico for 4 hours a day & the last month was with a private tutor for one hour a day. Solexico is quite a large school with lots of little palapas. They have a cafe on site where you […]

Is Mexico Safe?

I had the exact same question when considering our plan to visit Mexico for 6 months & maybe live there indefinitely in the future. I read everything I could find online, I watched news reports & wrote several people I knew living in Mexico asking if it really was safe. This isn’t a professional gathering […]

Tulum– Be Still my Beating Heart.

I’ve got a confession to make… I have a crush. A MEGA crush on Tulum. I was intrigued by the place when I heard about it last year.. so much so it had me make the biggest decision since having kids. Live in Mexico with Little D & Miss P for 5 months to check […]

The Unique Island that is Holbox + a 1000 yr old Tree

Holbox (pronounced Ol-bosh) is quite a well kept secret in these parts. Your main mode of transport are golf buggies with not a single paved road & no high rises to be seen. It really is one of a kind. If you’re driving from Playa del Carmen you take the 307 towards Puerto Morelos. Take […]

Mexican Food

Seeing as I’ve been cooking a bit of Mexican at home, taking some classes & eating a whole lot I thought I’d share a few recipes with you! Ceviche: 2 limes

It’s pretty easy to visit the many doctors that are in Mexico. The difficult part is making sure they’re properly certified. Check with your travel insurance company & get their input on which hospitals/doctors are legitimate. Or ask someone you know for a referral. Doctors: Call & make an appointment at a doctors office for […]

Things to do In & Around Playa del Carmen with Kids

Xcaret: A fantastic adventure park that could keep you entertained for 2 days. With over 40 activities for all ages its not something you wanna miss. Four & under are free but if your kids are taller than the measuring stick you’ll end up paying if you don’t have ID to prove their age. The […]

Life in Mexico with 2 Kids while The Man is Gone.

We’ve just hit 3 months in Mexico without the kids dad & my other half. When we first talked of doing this I thought 5 months would be a breeze. I’d spent nearly 5 yrs with a FIFO (fly in fly out) hubby & knew all to well what it meant to be alone with […]
