My eldest sister and I span an age gap of 16 years. Believe it or not, she was a grandma before I even gave birth to Miss Molasses. She has four children (and now one grandbaby), all four married, and all of them went to Mexico on their honeymoon. I loved to snicker about how, of all...

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...

On our trip to Mexico we toured ruins from infamous Mayan civilizations of yesteryear including Chichen Itza, one of the wonders of the world!

There is nothing quite so mesmerizing and astounding as standing amongst ancient ruins and experiencing a place where mankind changed the course of history over two thousand millennia ago.

On our first trip to Mexico we were only able to visit one cenote: Dos Ojos. It was love at first sight.

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...
