Cancun Or Bust … Again

Tagged: , ,

In what is turning out to be an every-four-years tradition, we will be traveling to Cancun for the fifth time in 20 years tomorrow for a week long vacation.

This image of the ruins at Tulum National Park in Mexico was taken from a popular vantage point at the park and is proof positive that the Mayans knew a good spot on the beach when they saw it.

Find Your Escape in an Isla Mujeres Sunset

Tagged: , , , , ,

There are a multitude of reasons I could list to try and convince you to visit Isla Mujeres, a small island off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. That, however, can be saved for another article. Sometimes, instead of incessant blathering, an image is all you need to get your point across. Witness the image below from Sean Sheridan. Shared to my Facebook page by Sean, it not only is a perfect representation of why you should visit Isla...
