When in…Mexico?

So since I’ve last posted I’ve been pretty busy with not only keeping up with school but galavanting around Mexico! To start off you’re probably wondering why I just took off to Mexico, but it just so happens my family has a snug little condo right smack dab on the Yucatán. One of my older brothers decided the family needed to keep off their shoes and have a good time. And man, what a week that was. 

We did the usual touristy things, and I literally ate tacos everyday. Because when in Mexico do as the locals right!?

I think the highlight of the trip for me was the day trip to Cobá. Cobá is the sight of some of the oldest Mayan ruins. And what a sight were they to see. The best part of the trip was the fact that we got to ride these, pieced together bikes. And I mean like dumpster dived, pick a part bikes through the jungle to the temple. 


Once we made our way to the temple we had the chance to climb the 180 foot steep facade and summit just as the villagers did everyday. And as an avid climber and active outdoorsman I look at this thing and scoffed. But let me tell you, it wasn’t an easy task. By the time I had made it to the top I felt my lungs give out. 

But man was it a sight to see, miles and miles of unclaimed jungle just being all it is! The sight took my breathe away…or what was left of it at least. Once at the top I realized why these people did what they did and I couldn’t have felt more connected to those times.  

All in all the trip had many adventures, some that stay in Mexico. But I wouldn’t have traded my time there for anything! 

As always, Thank you for reading!!

  1. A pieced-together bike, nature, history, ruins and daily tacos? I am grateful to live through you vicariously right now, as I eat salad. Smile. Sounds wonderful. Glad you had time to let us all know what you were up to.

  2. I loved Mexico and had the opportunity to see the Mayan ruins as well. Pretty extraordinary. I see that you are outdoorsy. Have you ever been to my home state(Maine) and climbed Katahdin? It’s quite the hike but worth the views.

  3. Last weekend my wife’s friend went to the World naked Bike Ride, Guadalajara. It is spreading everywhere. There is no escape!


  4. So it seems that we have overlapped here in Mexico. I wonder if we crossed paths at any of the cenotes: me with my diving gear and you on the bikes. I love Mexico and Tulum. And yea, you better like tacos.
