Win A Trip For 2 To Cancun from Southwest Vacations

Southwest Vacations

Southwest Vacations is giving you a chance to win a trip for two to Cancun, Mexico!

The prize includes airfare and a stay at an all- inclusive resort. While I’m not a fan of all-inclusives, Lucas and I had a fun time in Cancun last summer thanks to a trip I had won!

I can’t say that I’d pay for an all-inclusive in Cancun, but I definitely wouldn’t mind going back if I won this prize. Continue reading Win A Trip For 2 To Cancun from Southwest Vacations

Family Travel Tip: Don’t Forget To Bring…

family travelLucas and I went on our 2nd Father Son Trip to Mexico in July 2016.

While all-inclusive resorts aren’t my thing, since I won the trip how could I refuse to go! I also knew that Lucas would have a great time since he just loves playing in the water and in the sand.

To make the trip a bit more exciting for me, I set up a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage Site that I had yet to visit, Chichen Itza, located in Mexico’s Yucatan.

During the visit, I committed what I’d consider to be the biggest family travel mistake I’ve made to date. Continue reading Family Travel Tip: Don’t Forget To Bring…

A Visit To Chichen Itza And The Mistake I Made…

Over the summer Lucas and I went on a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Cancun isn’t the kind of destination that I’d choose to visit but we went due to a great reason- I had won the trip!

I’m not really into spending days at the beach or by the pool but Lucas loves being in the water so I knew that it would be a great time for him. To break up the beach/pool time, I scheduled a day trip to Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

I don’t know much about pop star Justin Bieber but I do know that he’s gotten himself into some trouble in the past.

A quick web search brought me to an article from the IB Times mentioning five countries in which Bieber has gotten into legal trouble- Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Germany and the US.

Now we can add Mexico to the list… kind of. Continue reading Justin Bieber Kicked Out of Tulum Ruins in Mexico

I received an interesting press release from JetBlue yesterday related to flights to Mexico.  It appears that the airline might (will?) be increasing service to the country in 2016.

The press release’s title is “JetBlue Applauds Landmark US- Mexico Aviation Treaty“.

Besides the news from JetBlue I didn’t come across this information from other airlines or anywhere else. Continue reading JetBlue To Increase Service to Mexico?

Some Tasty Local Eats At McDonald’s Mexico

I’ve written many times in the past about how I like to visit McDonald’s while traveling to new places but rarely ever step foot inside a McD’s at home.

I stop by McDonald’s for a couple of reasons.

  1. I love seeing what local or different items might be on the menu.
  2. Sometimes you just want something to eat that is familiar.

During our trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico I visited McD’s due to reason #1. Continue reading Some Tasty Local Eats At McDonald’s Mexico

Traffic Jam- Yelapa, Mexico

During our trip to Puerto Vallarta we took a boat trip which made two stops. The first stop was for some snorkeling but the main draw of the trip was to visit a fishing village only accessible by boat, Yelapa.

When we arrived close to the village, it looked pretty interesting. We were given two choices, hang out and relax on the beach or go for a hike around the area.

I think many of you can figure out which option I went with. Continue reading Traffic Jam- Yelapa, Mexico
