We made the journey from Tulum to Caye Caulker easily in one day using public transport in January 2015.
After Caye Caulker, we realised that the rumours of Belize being expensive were indeed true. So we decided to make just one more stop, in San Ignacio, near the Guatemalan border.
Belize is an anomaly in Central America, being the only English speaking country and one rooted more in the culture of the Caribbean islands than the region surrounding it.
Our time in Mexico was amazing, and we loved the sights, the culture, the people and of course the food. It isn’t an expensive place but it still somehow …
We almost skipped Tulum, as it looked a bit beyond our budget – what a mistake that would have been.
It wasn’t instant, but we eventually learned to like, if not love, this crumbling city.
For my birthday, Katy booked us five nights in Cozumel, a large island off the coast near Playa Del Carmen.
We weren’t in Oaxaca to do anything in particular, we just wanted to chill and explore another Mexican city.
I saw photos of Guanajuato in summer of last year – straight away the beautiful colourful buildings and unique architecture really put this place on the map for me.
February flew by! We started in Belize but spent the vast majority of it in Guatemala.
