Cenote Ik Kil, Mexico, Riviera Maya, Yucatan Peninsula, Mayan Ruins, Sinkhole, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, traveling with kids, family travel, creating family memories
One of the stops during our guided tour with Alma’s LDS Tours was the cenote Ik Kil, even though our time was short. We spent a long time at Ek Balam and Chichen Itza with no complaints. The fascination of these ruins were too compelling to tear ourselves away, so we had just 30 minutes to spend the last...

The myth of Atlantis is an enigma. Is it the Greek island of Santorini? Is it lost forever and sunken to the depths of the ocean? Is it guarded by the Kraken? This is exactly why it’s such an appealing marketing scheme to call a glorified casino by the same name, Atlantis, and pretend like you are going to...
As excited as we were about seeing Elsa and Anna, we couldn’t shake the feeling that something was very wrong. Standing in line was a large, single, heavy set man with thick, dark rimmed glasses, brown hair and a fishing hat that blocked most of his face. He was fidgeting and kept his phone upright at all times. He...
Cenote Cristalino, Mexico, Cenote, Riviera Maya, Yucatan Peninsula, Traveling with kids, family travel, creating family memories
On our first trip to Mexico we were only able to visit one cenote: Dos Ojos. It was love at first sight. Swimming in a cave clear as crystal, shared with local fish where you can see to the very bottom depths, surrounded by a natural cave in which stalactites are covering the ceiling while wading in crisp fresh...
Grocery Shopping in Mexico, MEGA Soriana, Playa del Carmen, Culture in Mexico, Chedraui, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, family travel, traveling with kids, creating family memories
There is plenty of grocery shopping in Mexico to meet all your needs, including a Home Depot and a Sam’s Club! The two major grocery store chains are Mega and Chedraui (also known as El Super if you are in the United States of Nevada, Arizona or California). Mega is where we did most of our shopping and at...
Driving a Car in Mexico, Driving in Mexico, Yucatan peninsula, riviera maya, cenotes, adventures in mexico, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids,
Should you Drive in Mexico? The answer is unequivocally yes! Just like you should definitely Rent a Car in Mexico, (see Part 1), you should absolutely explore Mexico outside of the tourist zones of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You may have to take your nerves to the gym to pump some iron in advance, because driving in Mexico can...
Time and Tide Tours, Cape Canaveral, Florida, Banana River, Dolphins in the wild, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids
Dolphins, Sharks and Manatees, oh my! We joined the Time and Tide Tours in Port Canaveral prior to our sailing on the Disney Fantasy and it was an awesome way to learn about the port and the history of the area. We got to go fishing, see and hold aquatic wildlife, and watch a pod of dolphins swim in...
Disney Fantasy, Disney Cruise Ship, Caribbean Cruise, family travel, traveling with kids, creating family memories
Well, naturally after boarding the Disney Magic, and then the Disney Wonder Disney Cruise Ships, it only made sense to move on to the Disney Fantasy. Bigger, bolder, and better? We had to find out. While we did want to cross off sailing on all four Disney Cruise Ships, we didn’t exactly intend to go on three Disney Cruise...

Years ago, like when yonder breaks, we went to Cozumel on our honeymoon cruise. We stepped off the boat and immediately found this cute little scooter to rent for next to nothing, and toured the island with nothing but a sense of adventure! When we came back 15 years later, we were hoping for a similar set of circumstances....

Bamboo River Rafting on the Martha Brae River was our favorite excursion when we stopped in Falmouth, Jamaica during our Disney Cruise on the Disney Fantasy. This is not to be confused with white water river rafting, which is typically what comes to mind when we talk about this excursion and everyone’s jaw drops to the floor when we...
