Airbnb ‘in it – Tree House Living On Lake Atitlan

Tree house living in an Airbnb on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

We normally use a few different resources when booking accommodation & check all of them before making a decision on where we are going to stay. For us, as a couple, we find that it can sometimes be much better value to book private accommodation through Airbnb when you weigh up everything that will be included than […]

Travel Life – Backpacking As A Couple

Backpacking as a couple - Travel Life - Destination Addict

Backpacking as a couple is for us is epic, but at times tough too! We have discovered that It’s all about finding your flow, together. We’ve been travelling together for 8 months in total & have had some of the most amazing experiences but it’s not always smiles & good vibes – it’s also compromise, […]

Mexico to Guatemala Border Crossing – San Cristobal De Las Casas to Lake Atitlán

Mexico to Guatemala Border Crossing – San Cristobal De Las Casas to Lake Atitlán

There are a number of transport options but we decided to take the shuttle bus to cross the border from Mexico to Guatemala using the Ciudad CuauhtĂ©moc to La Mesilla crossing. We’ve tried to keep this short & simple for anyone looking to do the same. Here are the details of how we did it & […]

San Cristobal De Las Casas – Chiapas’ Cultural Delight!

Destination Addict - San Cristobal De Las Casas - Chiapas’ Cultural Delight!

San Cristobal De Las Casas was one of our Mexico highlights! During our travels around the Yucatan we had heard some really good things about San Cristobal and were very intrigued by the setup of the City with the nearby indigenous towns that surround it. These indigenous people still abide by their very own rules […]

Palenque - Why They Are Our Favourite Mayan Ruins & Where To Stay - Destination Addict

Waking up in our jungle cabana to the sound of howler monkeys all around us was just magical! When we decided to visit Palenque ruins we had a choice of staying in Palenque town or in the jungle, hippy hangout area of El Panchan. We were certainly glad that we went for the latter! Note […]

Sleepy Celestun – Chillin’ & Flamingo Spotting

Destination Addict - Sleepy CelestĂşn - Chillin' & Flamingo Spotting

Who doesn’t love a flamingo? Lanky, pink birds, what’s not to love eh?! These beautiful creatures were the number one reason for us heading over to Celestun on Yucatan’s gulf coast but they were not the only awesome part of our trip to this sleepy fishing village. Note from the author: This article has been written by […]

Yucatan Road Trip – Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote & Ek Balam

Yucatan Road Trip - Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote & Ek Balam

Road trip? In Mexico? Estamos loco? Well maybe just a little! As we were travelling for a very short while with one of our very good friends from back home, we really wanted to make the most of the time & get a few key sights in together. Admittedly at first, yes, we were a […]

Things To Do In Merida Mexico – The White City

Things To Do In Merida Mexico - The White City

Travelling with no solid schedule is great when you arrive in a place & find that you want to take some more time there just to enjoy it. That’s exactly what happened to us in the white city of Merida Mexico. Having travelled up from Tulum we originally planned on staying just a couple of nights […]

The Mayan Ruins – Plus 6 Other Pretty Cool Reasons To Visit Tulum

The Mayan Ruins – Plus 6 Other Pretty Cool Reasons To Visit Tulum

Ok, everyone knows that Tulum is a little touristy but that really shouldn’t put you off visiting! Our first stop after spending 7 weeks in Cuba was Tulum. After being without most modern luxuries in a socialist country we decided that Cancun (where we flew into) would probably be too much of a shock to […]
