Intro Central America may conjure up images of hidden Mayan ruins, spewing volcanoes, palm tree strewn beaches and pastel painted colonial cities but there’s one place that might not immediately spring to mind, but absolutely should.

Using Local Currency as a Time CapsuleTop Story - November 2023
On our last big trip through Mexico and Central America, every time we left a country, I glued an envelope into my journal and put a local note in there. I wrote what it was worth at the time and any little notes about it that came to mind about the local currency.

Be Careful What You Wish for — Do You Really Want a Guide for Your Next Mayan Temple?Top Story - October 2023
At this point in the trip, we were no strangers to Mayan temples. We’d seen some incredible feats of ancient artwork, engineering, and architecture in Mexico and Belize. Every other temple we had visited so far, we had explored independently, learning from the information dotted about and what was written in our guidebooks.

Backpackers on a Budget, Beware Hopkins in Belize!Top Story - June 2023
Reading up about the small beach town of Hopkins before we went, it sounded like there were lots of things to do. Technically, there is, but the problem is you can’t get to any of them!
Caye Caulker — Caribbean Island Travel Diaries
First Impressions Caye Caulker is such a teeny tiny island that at first glance it may fool you into thinking that it might not have much to offer. But sometimes the best things do come in small packages and this pint-sized, adorable, a little rough-around-the-edges Caribbean island quickly became my new favourite place in Belize.
Travel Diaries — The Ridiculous Ups and Downs of a Day in San Pedro, Belize
Morning San Pedro was our first stop in Belize and was a breath of fresh air, it felt as if we had left Central America and jetted off to the Caribbean. (Belize is often considered a Caribbean country in Central America, it is completely different from surrounding Mexico and Guatemala)
Isla Mujeres — From the Sublime to the Ridiculous
First Impressions When arriving in Isla Mujeres you may be forgiven for thinking that you have left Mexico and entered some sort of Mexican-themed island in the USA. A place that exists solely for middle-aged tourists to suddenly lose all use of their limbs and suddenly have to resort to using a golf buggy every time they want to travel more than two feet. We considered forgiving Isla Mujeres for this barrage of bum bags and socks and sandals because the island itself was lovely.
Why Being an Uber Driver in Cancun Puts You in Serious Danger
I love it whenever Uber is available when we are traveling, this is for several reasons. It’s easy to use, I don’t have to worry about figuring out the local currency when I very first arrive, and I know exactly how long the wait will be. This makes a 3 am arrival a hell of a lot easier to navigate.
Snorkelling on Isla Cozumel — the Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and the Just Plain Silly!
Intro Isla Cozumel is a tropical island located off the Caribbean coast of Mexico and on the MesoAmerican barrier reef (the second largest coral reef in the world). It’s no surprise that it is known for world-class snorkelling and diving in its turquoise waters.
