THE TWIRLING TRAVELER
We absolutely love the Caribbean Sea, so we knew we had to visit an island as part of our November Mexico trip. We have previously visited Tulum and Isla Holbox and were looking for a different destination. I decided to book a few days on Isla Mujeres. Isla Mujeres is located right in front of Cancun and therefore really easy to get too, you just have to go to the ferry terminal and within an hour you can be settled into your hotel. But is Isla Mujeres really that idyllic?
Campeche is usually overlooked on Mexico trips. Most people don’t venture out of Quintana Roo and Yucatan, but it actually is very worth it to visit this neighboring province. Campeche is located at the Gulf of Mexico, so the water may not be as clear as in other locations in Mexico, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit. We loved the colorful, colonial town, which is not overrun by crowds. On top of that, Campeche still is very affordable, so make sure to visit before everybody discovers this gem!
One of the locations that was high on my Mexico roadtrip list was Izamal! A colonial style town that is completely painted in yellow, sounds like a photographer’s dream. When I discovered that it was possible to stay in a colorful Hacienda, I knew this was going to be a highlight of our Mexico trip. In this blogpost I will take you along on our time in Izamal.
