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 […]

Xcaret -Mayan for “Small Inlet”

Xcaret – (pronounced Ish-Ka-Ret) is located just south of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula. You cant possibly miss it! With more than 40 activities we were in for a big day. If you’re looking for one spot that has nearly everything at your fingertips then this is it. Seeing as the place is […]

Exploring Hidden Worlds

My sister Shells & her BF Lewis came for a visit which also happen to coincide with her birthday! We decided to look for something a little more adventures plus she was hoping to check out the club Coco Bongo. While searching online she found a deal for Hidden Worlds which also included tickets to the […]

Chichén Itzá a Wonder of the World

We drove North past Cancun towards Merida & followed the toll roads & signs to Chichén Itzá. Its a 3 hour drive & relatively easy to find, even with detours, small towns & extremely basic signs. After parking the car for a small fee we made our way to the front desk. It cost 177 pesos […]

Our First Aid Kit

I know I can get everything in Mexico. Farmacias (pharmacies) are quite abundant. But if you happen to be in the middle of no where or just can’t be bothered going out to find what you need in a time of need then packing a small kit is gonna save you a lot of stress. […]

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 […]

Six Stunning Cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula

I wont say that these are the best in the Yucatan Peninsula as I haven’t seen the rest to make a proper comparison.. but they’re pretty damn close to perfection. Wondering what a Cenote is?? Dictionary definition: Its a deep natural well or sinkhole, formed by the collapse of surface limestone that exposes ground water […]

Tulum – No wonder the Mayans Chose this Spot!

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 […]

Renting in Playa del Carmen

Bet you’re curious to know what an apartment looks like here in Mexico & more specifically Playa del Carmen. Coming from Australia I sure was! The pics below are something we are renting for roughly 6 months. Its about a 10-15 min drive from 5th Ave… the center of town & tourist hotspot! It suits […]
