Seeing Chichen Itza the second time around wasn’t that exciting anymore. The feeling I had the first time I laid my eyes on this Wonder of the World was gone. I went there to accompany a friend (aka his tour guide and photographer) who has never seen it. I’m not sure if he was really […]

Cenote Azul

Snorkeling in Cozumel

Together with a fellow backpacker I met at Playa del Carmen, we bought a round-trip ferry ticket to Cozumel for 316 Mexican Pesos. The plan was to chill in one of the famed beaches there—and perhaps, go snorkeling at one of the island’s famous diving and snorkeling sites. The ferry ride was about 45 minutes […]
