THE TRUTH ABOUT MEXICO CITY. IS IT DANGEROUS?

THE TRUTH ABOUT MEXICO CITY. IS IT DANGEROUS?

Destinations, Mexico
Me and my husband had bought tickets to visit Mexico City, and were super excited about this trip. “But isn’t it dangerous?”   Without fail, this is one of the first questions friends and family members asked us when we told them that we are going to  “Mexico City”. But is it really dangerous? The answer, to put it briefly, is NO. I’m not ignorant of Mexico City’s reputations. This city has been generally portrayed as extremely crime ridden, but visitors are often surprised at how safe it feels. It’s because most of the crimes and violence happens in the northern and Pacific states, which is far from the city. Most of the things I knew about Mexico city before coming here…

THINGS TO DO IN PUERTO RICO

Destinations, Puerto Rico
Old San Juan Old San Juan is a delight, everything is colorful and bright. The houses differ in color and style which makes this place very attractive and amusing. This place has over 500 years of history. You can spend hours just walking around the city. Luckily we visited the city during the party of the year, “San Sebastián Street Festival” which is Puerto Rico’s biggest festival. It’s an annual event centered around San Sebastián Street (Calle San Sebastián) in the Puerto Rican capital’s historic district, Old San Juan from Jan19 to the 22nd.

In this post I’m going to share with you some tips to help you get on your next adventure sooner. Don’t take the package tours I want to discourage you from taking an escorted package tour. You don’t need one. The tour companies, hotel chains, and tourism industry wants you to buy cruise packages and stay at all-inclusive resorts. They just want your credit card number. It might seems at first that the package will save you money, but usually it’ll cost you twice what you’d pay if you simply…

What would you like to do if money were no object?

Travel Tips
I watched this video a few days ago, and although it’s supposed to be inspirational, it made me feel slightly depressed. It opened my eyes to the fact that I had wasted so much of my time and effort in the past not doing what I really wanna do. Our lives seems to be filled up with stuff that we HAVE TO DO, but this causes me to get some considerable time and thinking about what I really WANT TO DO. Most of us view it as unrealistic to live a life based purely on doing what we love. People working in jobs with zero or little satisfactions everyday just because those jobs provides financial securities. WHY? Is it really…

Isla Holbox, Mexico

Isla Holbox, Mexico

Destinations, Mexico
Isla Holbox, the paradise found in Mexcio, where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean. Although Isla Holbox is only a few hours from Cancun, it feels worlds apart.You won’t find any large luxury resorts, and shops. This place is all about cozy cafe and restaurants, and colorful markets. Most of the places are owned by locals. It is so refreshing to see that the money you spend benefits the locals. The whole island looks like a poster. I felt like I was in a Pinterest board. The island is small, and incredibly colorful. This place is so laid-back and relaxing. The island is surrounded by azure waters, and the beach is a lot more quieter than the aforementioned places,…

Chichen Itza, Mexico Travel Guide

Chichen Itza, Mexico Travel Guide

Destinations, Mexico
A real treasure not to be missed Chichen Itza has recently been named as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. It has been around for over 1000 years. El Castillo served as a temple to the god Kukulkán and is believed to have served as a calendar, it has 365 steps, one step for each day of the year. How to get there: Pretty much every hotel, or travel company sells one day Chichen Itza tours. Their prices are about $120 USD per person, which in my opinion is a lot. We rented a car. It took us about 2 hours to drive from Cancun. The toll road cuts at least an hour from your driving time…
