Why Mexico Is Richer Than You Think

•••
Living in the United States, people grow up with the idea that life in a developing country is deprived of luxury. It’s a common misconception that those countries are less fortunate financially, and therefore they must be unhappy with their lives. Perhaps we should be able to see that fortune comes in form other than bills and coins. From a distance, th[...]

Why I'll never regret moving to Mexico for Love

•••
It was one year ago, when I worked for a French tour operator as a kids' entertainer in all-inclusive hotels. My company sent me to a different location every 6 months, and I really liked my job even if it was difficult sometimes. I was far away from my home, friends and family. I had to work long hours and be in a good mood all the time. However, it was a g[...]

6 Reasons why You'll Fall for Mexico

•••
Mexico – already the name of this breathtaking country awakens more emotions, stereotypes and expectations than many others. Most people instantly connect it with tasty food; some might think of the rhythmical sounds of typical Mariachi bands accompanying wild, loud fiestas while others rather associate it with the view of endless beaches and palm trees l[...]

Rediscovering Mexico: When a Mexican Expat moves back Home

•••
For the past 8 years, I have lived outside Mexico and travelled to different continents to see “the world out there”. From Europe to South America and the Caribbean, I have seen outstandingly beautiful places and eaten the most exquisite dishes.

5 Must-visit places in Mexico

•••
We've written a lot about Mexico before: we shamelessly professed our love for Tulum, gone on and on about La Paz (time and again), and given tips about Mexico City. But what can we say? There's something enchanting about this country that keeps calling us back for more. More adventure, more delicious food, more cultural immersion. It's true that places like[...]

The Leading Ladies of Dia de los Muertos

•••
Mexico’s Day of the Dead is a complex holiday full of colour, morbid humour, deep sentimentality, celebration, and heartache. On the eves of November 1 and 2, the dead are welcomed with open arms into the land of the living. Not only are the dearly departed invited back, but they are the guests of honor. In preparation, and to entice them to the party, tr[...]

Top 5 Maya Ruins in the Yucatán Peninsula

•••
I’d been dreaming of visiting Mexico – the Yucatán Peninsula and its intriguing Maya ruins to be precise – since I was a little kid and couldn’t be happier when I hit the ‘Book’-button on one of those flight search engines in order to confirm my trip in December 2012. After spending a vast amount of my free time in the following months with planning and arra[...]

Utila, Honduras - living the island life

•••
An island perched on the edge of the Mesoamerican barrier reef (the second largest reef system in the world), encircled by crystalline waters and with an exotic history peppered with pirates, gold and sunken treasure… So far, so very Caribbean. But Utila’s unique selling point in this region where ritz, glitz and cruise ships reign is that it embraces the ba[...]

Cosas Mágicas: A Guide to Tepoztlán, Mexico

•••
What makes a destination truly magical? It is a combination of many things: natural beauty, culture, history, climate, locals, and that feeling that you just can’t put a name on. Tepoztlán, a small town south of Mexico City, is all of these things and more. The Mexican government recognized this and, rightfully so, bestowed  upon Tepoztlán  the title of “Pue[...]
