Cenote Samulá

One of the things I liked the most about the beautiful colonial city of Valladolid was that it was surrounded by lots of cenotes within a biking distance. One of those cenotes was the mouth-opening cenote Samulá, located just 7kms away from the city. Getting there To get there, you can hire a bike in one… (continue reading)

Calakmul, a photo essay

Calakmul has been—by far—my favorite mayan site of this journey, so far. Not only because of the rewarding feeling of reaching it after a really hard trip, but also because of its rawness and impressive beauty. Located 60km away from any sign of civilization, you can’t get anything more authentic than this. For now, I’ll leave you with… (continue reading)

A magical afternoon in San José del Pacífico

It was the same afternoon after our amazing mushroom trip in San José del Pacífico. I was just coming down from it after almost 6 hours of intense hallucinations in the woods and was in love with everything and everyone, still feeling some of the effects of the mushrooms. The sun was going down behind the mountains… (continue reading)

Camping in Hierve el Agua

From the moment I discovered it was possible to camp at Hierve el Agua, I knew I wanted to capture a sunrise over there, showing a face of the place I have never seen before. There is just one other place in the world where you can find a landscape similar to Hierve el Agua In order… (continue reading)

Inside the 20 de Noviembre market

I arrived at Oaxaca very early in the morning, after one of the worst nights on a bus ever, so I was a little bit tired, to say the least. Since I was Couchsurfing, I didn’t have a place to stay until my host was ready to receive me, so I walked around downtown until I luckily found… (continue reading)

Agua Azul waterfalls

Patience is one of the most valuable virtues a photographer can have, specially if you’re on a very touristic area like the Agua Azul waterfalls. We arrived at Agua Azul around 4:30pm and hundreds of people were still bathing in the waters and hanging around, so it was really hard to shoot a good panoramic photo… (continue reading)

The first time I was able to photograph the Milky Way

Ever since I was a little child, I’ve had a deep fascination for space, stars, black holes and anything in between those subjects. I remember spending hours talking with my cousin about all those big mysteries in the Universe, feeling smaller every time, but with a growing curiosity. Obviously, every time I see a majestic… (continue reading)

Beautiful sunset at Hermosillo

Almost 3 years ago, I left Hermosillo to go and live in Mexico City. And even though I fell completely in love with the capital, there were still a couple of things I constantly kept missing. One of these things was my hometown’s truly astonishing sunsets. I believe it might be a mixture of the desert heat,… (continue reading)

A girl playing with water [Highlight]

We were in front of the Monumento a la Revolución, one of the most emblematic places in Mexico City. The sun setting behind it while hundreds of people gathered by the public fountains, young and old, having the time of their lives on a lazy sunday afternoon. It’s funny how things take a new meaning… (continue reading)

El Zócalo [Highlight]

Last week, I decided to make a quick tour around Mexico City’s downtown by night, as part of a new set of posts I want to publish for the blog before I start traveling on august. A friend of mine and I did a three hours walk through the Alameda Central, Bellas Artes and Madero… (continue reading)
