I have just updated all my pictures on the blog. I was about 1 week late, so I would like to precise that this will happen again, as I dont always have access to internet.
We intend to stay in Mexico for the day of the deads, which is tomorrow night (Nov 1st). Then we will head to Belize.
We enjoy our trip very much. it is tyring but quite an exprience. Hard to believe we havent done half of it yet. It´s been 3 weeks but it´s easy to loose track of time when home keeps changing. Another 2 months roughly !
I hope this finds you all well. Thanks for having a look at my blog. It is quite pleasant to share this adventure.

The Mexican Riviera is well renown. Cancun is too americanized to be worth going, so we went straight to Tulum. It wont stay authentic for long but for now it is still marvellous. the dream carrabean beach, the cabanas, turquoise water and soft sand. The perfect place to recharge the batteries before heading to Belize.
20 minutes down the road of the maya site, this waterful is every kids´ dream. First it is beautiful and powerful as it is. But it is also possible to walk behind it, and appreciate the waterfall from the other side ! The power of all that water becomes a lot more realistic when so close behind. On the top of it, we could swim at the front of it (not too close as it would be certain death). A dream.
Palenque is in the east Chiapas and is world renowned for its Maya site. It is very impressive, probably the most inpressive scenery I have seen so far on this trip (even more than the dream beaches). It is a whole Maya city that is there, in excellent condition. The whole site is maybe 2 x 2 km.
