Travelling to Mexico. Part I
I know, it’s been a while since I talked to you, whoever is reading this right now. But it was such a mess time for the past two months, my job is taking most of the time. However, I have got a lot of things to tell, which I promise they will come up one by one very soon. At least, I am trying to motivate myself to sit, relax and write like I did today.
I have decided to open a new category for you, which is TRAVEL yaaahoo 🙂
So, here is our journey begins to this beautiful country… Mexico. We planned this trip back in January, and we were super excited to meet our Mexican friends and explore Cancun a bit more. Most of the places we planned waaay before coming to Cancun, like searching on Google “Top 10 things to do” lol.
So, our 8-day trip begins…
We landed in Cancun airport around 6 pm, once we stepped out of the airplane, it felt super humid, however, we loved it, cuz in Toronto it was a bit chilly. Then we arrived at our cozy hotel with beautiful full of palm trees beach. First two days we were basically exploring the hotel and city area. Also, we rented a car with our friends in order to travel where and when we wanted.
Trip Tip: we highly recommended to rent a car it will make your trip more enjoyable, you can go whenever you want and anytime you want.
So, the first place we visited was Isla Mujeres island, it takes only 20 minutes by ferry from Cancun city. Personally, I do not recommend to go there, unless you have nothing to do in your hotel. It’s extremely crowded island with a lot of tourists, souvenirs stores and places to eat, the beach area itself was okay :(.
The next day we went to Yucatan province, where we had a chance to visit Valladolid city, the “Instagramable” city, I have ever seen, cuz of the colorful walls. Valladolid one of the ancient cities in Mexico, founded in 1540. Recommended to visit and see the life of locals. The city located only 45 minutes from Chichen Itza (the reason why we came to Mexico basically).
Chichen Itza is a world-famous complex of Mayan ruins, and the most famous pyramid “EL Castillo” is located there. The pyramid itself is worth to visit, it’s a massive construction with a series of square terraces with stairways up each of the four sides to the temple on top. The day we went there, was not really crowded and we were able to take pics like no one was there. The main Mexican goal of visiting this place was successfully achieved.
I don’t want to put all the places in one post because our diving story can be too long for it lol. The story will continue in my next post: Mexico.Part II…
Thank you for reading and hopefully it worth the wait. If you have any questions, please ask in the comment section below 🙂
