Camping in Mahahual, Mexico

Mahahual is a small and developing town in southern Quintana Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula, mostly known for being the place where the Central American coral reef starts, which attracts hundreds of tourists in search of good diving/snorkeling experience.

The hot waterfall of Finca Paraíso

I first read about this place while browsing my feed around Trover and was immediately skeptical of its veracity, so when I decided to change my travel route and go back to southern Belize, it was only fair to make a small detour to Río Dulce, Guatemala and from there, experience this place with my… (continue reading)

Discovering El Mirador, home to the highest mayan pyramid

The first time I heard of El Mirador, I was traveling in Mexico with a couple of guys that were planning on doing this challenging trek through the guatemalan jungle, in search of the highest mayan pyramid.

Toniná and the entrance to the Underworld

Toniná is an ancient Mayan site located in the mexican state of Chiapas, near the town of Ocosingo and in the middle of the route between the beautiful city of San Cristóbal de las Casas and Palenque—yet it is often avoided by tourists. Even though the space it occupies is quite small, the ruins are massive—impressive… (continue reading)

Through the Chacahua mangroves at night

When I first heard about the Chacahua mangroves and how beautiful they are, I got really excited because I’ve never been to any mangroves before. That’s why I decided to go there after and intense week of surfing in Puerto Escondido, but I don’t think I was prepared for what I found in the end. The town Chacahua is… (continue reading)
