Cuernavaca, Mexico

Last week mom and I went on our last weekend adventure of this trip together. Despite going out salsa dancing the night before we were determined to enjoy her last weekend in Mexico. So around 12 in the afternoon we caught an Uber with two of our friends and took a 2 hour trip down…

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…

Mexico City Pride 2019

Upon our arrival to Mexico City my mom and I had about 3 days to explore the city of Mexico before starting our language classes at CEPE. We purposefully booked rooms at a hostel in the center of the historic district even though it was about an hour away from CEPE by transport for two…

Cabo San Lucas

Aguas Calientes

After the amazing two days at Los Frailes, we decided to head in land to Aguas Calientes. Now I’m not sure what part of Hot Water made me think that there was going to be cold water near by, but we were all extra grumpy when we arrived hot and tired to find water that…

Los Frailes

After driving back to San Jose del Cabo to pick up two of our friends, we began the trek to Los Frailes. Los Frailes is located on the East coast of Baja California, which is not a tourist destination, and as a result, we spent the entire drive on a dirt road. Thankfully, the four…

La Fortuna

Our flight to Baja California went very smooth, and we were able to pick up the car with a good amount of daylight left. The warmth was awesome!! We weren’t quite sure where we were; we just wanted to get to the beach as soon as possible. After accidentally taking the wrong turn, we found…
