    Travel: Cenote Ik Kil Mexico

    It’s the Ik Kil Cenote in Mexico – the host of Red Bull diving a few years back. Not only is this place so much fun, it’s absolutely beautiful. Cenote Ik Kil After we visited Chichen Itza we stopped here – it was the perfect way to cool off and have some fun. This is what the cenote – meaning sink hole – looks like from above. We’re on the ground level and the water is a huge hole in the ground. It’s all natural…

    Travel: Chichen Itza

    Oh my goodness, this place – Chichen Itza – is awesome. One of the 7 wonders of the world, it’s most definitely worth the visit. Chichen Itza First, get a guide and opt for the shorter version. It was 35 degrees out with minimal shade, so the 2 hour tour was more than enough. All in all we spent about 2.5-3 hours at the site. Second, learn cool stuff. These steps are narrow forcing humans to walk up sideways so as to not face the…

    Travel: Tulum, Mexico

    Tulum, Mexico is about 35-45 minutes south of Akumal – and about 2 hours south of Cancun. It’s beautiful. Bryce and I took the Colectivo and saw the ruins, had lunch, and walked around this sweet little city. Tulum, Mexico First – make sure you bring sun screen, a hat, and something to drink. Also, note that the way you enter is not the way you exit. So, just keep that in mind if you’re in a larger group. Oh, and no facilities inside the…

    Travel: How to Take the Colectivo

    How to take the Colectivo in Quintana Roo, Mexico? Well, first let me tell you it’s easier than you might think. It’s not as formal as public transportation where I’m from, Alberta, Canada – but, it’s reliable and convenient. Plus, as an added bonus, we saved over $200 Canadian by taking the Colectivo over a Taxi. An important thing to know is that there are two Colectivo ‘lines’ if you will. Tulum to Playa and Playa to Cancun. Also, there are two types of Colectivos…
