Tulum: Feverish Nights

Brodie was feeling poorly overnight. By morning he had come down with whatever ailment last manifested itself on the way home from Mauritius. It always seems to swoop in just at the end of a holiday. I left him to try and sleep in and went for a last...

Tulum: Hitting the Cenote

It’s a little odd waking up in the mornings under a tent-like mosquito net.  Though it’s also still novel to wake up to rays of sunshine at 6am.  We’re up early again this morning; skipping breakfast and flagging a taxi outside the resort to take us back to ITour...

Tulum: Beach Day

Today we have carefully planned to do… nothing. There’s no point staying at a nice beach resort if you’re going to be elsewhere all day. When the sun is up we part our mosquito nets and go searching for breakfast, which is harder to get than we’d bargained for....

Tulum Ruins

It could be lingering jetlag, or just the unaccustomed early dawn over here. Whatever the reason, it seems to be impossible for us to sleep past 6am without waking up. We’re then exhausted before 10pm each night. This morning was no exception, and once more we were up and...

Chichen Itza: Chicken Hell

Our random patches of sunburn were looking worse this morning. Think uncomfortable-looking white and red dappled pandas and you get the idea. Copious amounts of aftersun were applied to try and belatedly make up for our sun transgressions yesterday. The weather outside had changed yet again, and there were...

Tulum: Dolphintastic

Our first ever experience of travelling via a ‘colectivo’ in Mexico went surprisingly smoothly. This was our mode of transport to a hotel resort further up the coast where we were due to partake in a dolphin ‘Trainer for a Day’ program. A colectivo is one of the small...

Cozumel: Rain, rain go away.

We spend our last morning in Cozumel packing and attempting to clean. With no basic cleaning equipment provided, we have limited success. We don’t even attempt to do anything with the anthill which is still thriving. It’s a little dull outside, but has brightened up by the time I...

Cozumel: Sailing the Seas

This morning we set out on what google maps (probably unreliably) claimed was a 4.5 km trek to the meeting point for our sailing excursion. We’re not complete gluttons for punishment, so our first detour was into the supermarket for fresh breakfast donuts. We knew that we would pass...
