Searching a way to Mexico

Two years ago when we first started this blog, we wrote about a dream journey to Mexico (here). We said that if we make that journey, we would be focused on the pyramidal structures constructed by the Mayans and Aztecs. But then in the past 24 months as we continued our research and crafting of an itinerary, our views have changed.

Mexico is not just the land of the Aztecs or Mayans, it is also an eclectic culture of Spanish and local traditions. In a way we had experienced some of that back in our journey to Peru (here), though it also stands unique on its own. That is an example of what we want to see in a country.

And this time we’ve learnt our lesson. We shall not pack all of the journey into two short weeks like we did in Peru and Chile. Because when you only see snippets it makes you want to return. Darn it means budget constraints again… so it would be best to ‘get it over with’. This will be just 3 weeks solely on Mexico. And already that is not quite enough we hear some of you whisper…

Yes we know that.

But as folks who need to work for a living (not living to work heheh), there will be limits to how long we can be away from our jobs without losing it… So here’s to our dream of placing our handprints on Mexico.

We are adamant about getting to Mexico. Have you been there? What would you recommend?

  1. I would suggest at approximately a week of your three weeks in Mexico City itself. Despite its smog issue there is so much to see and do in the Capital. After that Oaxaca, Palenque, Uxmal , Chitchen Itza and Tulum with a return flight to Mexico City (which I assume will be your entry and exit point). Personally Cancun holds no interest for me but you may want to consider it. Many years ago now we had planned to hang around there for a few days but we saw sufficient on the bus trip into the city such that when we got to the bus station we immediately left the city on another bus!

  2. We have been several times to the Mayan Riveria – from Cancun to Tulum. People are friendly and very family oriented. On a recent trip to Texas, people told us they go across all the time for dental work, etc, but we didn’t – we’ve heard the bad stuff too, and actually, as Canadians, our insurance would not cover us if we crossed the border.
