Mayan Ruins and Flamingos: Merida to Dzibilchaltun and Laguna Rosada

After enjoying the Christmas holidays in Merida, and wandering its lovely colonial centro, we were excited to explore the countryside surrounding the big city.

End of Days in Playa Del Carmen And Where We’re Going Next

Since leaving Canada in early December we've been hanging out in the warm weather of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. In the past few months we've enjoyed gorgeous beaches, interesting ruins, fabulous meals, snorkeling with turtles, hanging out in ecoparks, lounging in swimming pools, riding on buses plus pretty much everything else you would get to do living at home. It's actually been low key compared to our previous trip, but we knew that coming in. We're only a few days from our flight to Spain. With the weather cooler there than what we're now used to it will be a wake up call once we set foot on the ground. We don't have a lot planned so far, however I'm expecting we'll spend a few days to a week checking out Madrid before heading south to warmer weather or maybe even west to Portugal. It should be a fun time regardless of where we end up and we're looking forward to traveling Europe with our little ones.
