Acapulco, Mexico

So I have a confession to make, I wasn’t looking forward to going to Acapulco. If you frequently read these posts then you probably know that I don’t really enjoy going to tourist areas. In my experience tourist areas using have loads of people, everything is expensive, you aren’t actually experiencing the true culture of…

Teotihuacan, Mexico City

Last weekend my mom, roommates, friends of roommates, and I all decided to go on an adventure to the Pyramids at Teotihuacan. Mom found this amazing blog post about getting to and from the Pyramids, and all in all it sounded like a great first adventure to take outside of the city. You know the…

The rest, Puerto Rico

M and I spent three nights on flamenco beach. Afterwards we took a ferry and then a taxi to a beach called seven seas. This beach was again beautiful, although lacked the stunning quality of culebra.

Culebra, Puerto Rico

Flamenco beach on Culebra island is amazing. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The island used to be a base for US military and as such has two abandoned tanks and some active Land mines if you leave the main path. So don’t leave the main path. The beach was packed…

Cabo San Lucas

After 4 nights of camping on a deserted beach and in a beautiful, spider infested canyon, any type of bed was amazing. A bed in a 4 star hotel? Mecca. Goodbye Cabo, until next time!!
