We headed to Cancun as a last resort option. A last resort, because Cancun has never been at the top of our list for places I was remotely interested in going. Whenever I think about Cancun all I can think about are spring break bikinis and young adults with extremely poor judgement getting plastered all the livelong day. But,...

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. Ek Balam is just one of the many ruins that can be found throughout the Yucatán Peninsula. A lesser known fact is that Mayan ruins are actually not singularly located...

True, we swore off airbnb last December after our horrific experience in Norway. But then, airbnb reached out to us personally and made good on the situation by offering us nearly a full refund back to our original form of payment. It still took us 8 months to forgive them, and we learned to be much more scrupulous in...

Sometimes flying standby means you get to the airport an hour before your flight, and jump on when it’s time to board. But usually, it means waiting around for hours and hours until you finally hear your name and don’t know how to react because you're positive you are hallucinating from being out in the airport desert without a...
Renting a Car in Mexico, Hertz Car Rental, Hertz, Renting a Car at the Cancun Airport, CUN, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, creating family memories, traveling with kids, family travel
Should You Rent a Car in Mexico? The answer is unequivocally yes! You will absolutely waste half a day in Mexico, starve your body of the required nutrients to survive in the process, sweat out your life force, and figuratively tear off the head of anyone who comes into your vicinity. But when the car rental process is over...
Chichen Itza, Mexico, Mayan Ruins, Yucatan Peninsula, Alma Tours, Diapersonplane, Diapers on a plane, family travel, traveling with kids, creating family memories
Not one, but two of the Wonders of the World revolve around lost and abandoned cities of Mayan civilization. One being in Peru: Machu Picchu, and the other in Mexico: Chichen Itza. These civilizations had complex and layered pyramid shaped temples, miles of networked roads that connected each city, and the summer and winter solstice each year manifest celestial...

We definitely count the Yucatan Peninsula as one of our favorite places to explore as a family. We have visited twice in so many years and love this region for the rich treasure that occupies this region when it comes to nature, adventure, history, geography, geology and so much more.  The world schooling opportunities are limitless. Feel free to use...

World Schooling Ek Balam tops our list of incredibly rewarding family field trips. Especially coupled with the fact that we not only got to tour Ek Balam, but Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Coba as well! We learned about temples, culture, rituals, agriculture, water sources, and so much more pertaining to the Mayan way of life. Feel free to use this...
Where to Eat in playa del carmen, mexico, 5th avenue playa del carmen, yucatan peninsula, riviera maya, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, traveling with kids, family travel, creating family memories
We could live off of rice, beans, and tortillas for breakfast, lunch and dinner - no problemo. Add in avocado and sour cream every once in a while and that is a diet based off a solid and tasty foundation. We didn’t have to try very hard to stick to this regime during our trip to Playa del Carmen....

It’s practically impossible to think of Mexico and not think of Chichen Itza. Mayan Ruins and Mexico are fairly synonymous with one another, and Chichen Itza is the most famous of them all. It’s even one of the Wonders of the World. So obviously, it was on our ‘must do’ list of adventures during our recent trip. We also...
