Better late than never.
I may have taken my time to update this blog, but I wasn’t going to give up so easily! Lazyness has been my companion for too long, but today I decided it was time to shake things up.
So basically I went to Mexico after New Year’s to visit my sister and had lots of fun. I visited Riviera Maya for a week of rain and cold and then went back to Mexico City where surprisingly the weather was much better. I took some pictures, which I thought were great but ended up being just O.K., and then decided that I wanted to show them to the world and say a few things about this amazing country that has many beautiful places to go and too much bad publicity.
Riviera Maya has lots to offer
In spite of the bad weather, the views and landscape in Riviera Maya were like paradise. When in Yucatán, relax in your hotel, visit the ruins of Cobá, Tulúm or Chichén Itzá, swim admist fish in a cenote, take a boat to Isla Mujeres and if you have extra time and money, go to a park like Xcaret.
Mexico City is beautiful and not scary
Before my sister went to Mexico City, my image of the city was of a huge chaotic dangerous place. She’d already told me that in fact there are many different Mexicos and when I got there I enjoyed discovering the posh Polanco, the hipster Roma, the bohemian Coyoacán, the picturesque city centre…
When in Mexico City you must absolutely visit the Teotihuacán ruins, the Frida Kahlo House in Coyoacán, the main square “el Zócalo“, the top of la Torre Latinoamericana (just before sunset) and get lost in the different neighborhoods (ok, maybe not all of them, try the ones I mentioned earlier).
Voilà some images of Mexico. There are of course many more things to see in that big and surprising country and I hope this small post makes you want to visit Mexico and discover them by yourself.
