A Tropical Narnia
A Caribbean vacation promises a bunch of exciting adventures to look forward to! Pristine beaches with waters that play out an interesting intermix of a million hues of blue, sun-kissed sands, crystal clear skies, beyond perfect weather, a thousand and a half adventure sports to gorge upon, enticing bars with some of the choicest of bar wizards, groovier-than-thou nightclubs, limitless shopping options, a whole lot of tradition and history interlaced with the resort-town-vibe and so much more than meets the eye at first!
But, most of all, and, rather, most noteworthy of all, is the peace of mind that emerges out of nowhere and seems to overpower all other emotional and cerebral chaos that ensues once you step foot on this surreal land!! As oxymoronic as it gets, it is just not enough to soak in all of this awesomeness into mere words!! The dreamy, uptown-funky Cancun metropolitan stands tall across the Southeastern tip of Mexico, crowning the Mexican Riviera Maya with its strategic placement, and rightly so!
Never thought once how weather could affect moods really!! Methinks, it does! Majorly! And, when the sun shines
I, for one, hardly came across a frown face in Cancun! It is such a happy place with even happier people! Even the sun seems to shine a little brighter here! Although most tourists optimize their stay here across the Zona Hotelera (the essential core of the resort town dotted with everything from laid back to adventurous!), there are plenty parts in and around it that scream for attention from a traveler’s curious eye, hungry soul and open heart!
History agog with tales from the yore, monumentally fascinating buildings that date as far back as the 8th century, a myriad of traditional shopping nooks, adventure sports to quench every adrenaline junkie’s thirst, and a culture that refuses to be bogged down by the perils of poverty and natural disasters! We fell for this delightful city
Indulgence is synonymous with routine in Cancun! Everything is enormously blown out of proportion! Of course, in a good way! Bottomless drink bars, never-ending food courses, impeccable service
Another striking and appreciable high point of Cancun is the people at your
Nightlife in Cancun is nothing short of power packed action! It’s eye-popping, heart-stirring,
Buffets, all-you-can-eat-restaurants, bottomless bars, drinks on tap! Oh, doesn’t that sound like music to your ears? That’s what an all-inclusive vacation brings to the table in Cancun!! The best part, you get to walk around sans a wallet! Obviously, dollar bills come in handy for hefty tips, for who wouldn’t want to reward such large-hearted people at your service! Palace resorts have a multitude of properties sprawled across all of Cancun! And, your only job is to hop onto wherever you may please and avail of the larger-than-life indulgences that they offer!! Disclaimer: Spending a week here may inadvertently cause you to subconsciously ignore actual food bills when you get back to the real world!! Also, the weighing scale may ghost you for as long as you barely recover from the rapid and massive influx of mass in your body!!
History and tropical indulgence are at a unique and spectacular confluence on one of the last preserved walled cities believed to have been built and inhabited by the Mayan civilization called Tulum!! Tulum is the literal Yucatan Mayan translation for fence, wall or trench! Located about a 130
When you experience something monumental during your travel, it gifts you a sense of wow, a sense of how mind blindingly pulchritudinous this universe is. And every single moment in life that you took for granted comes rushing to you, and you hope and pray that you may never end up doing that ever again! Top of the list on the modern wonders of the world, this anciently preserved (we’re talking ever since the early 600 AD) site attracts millions of tourists each year, and it is almost as if witnessing vignettes of intriguing mythological history right in front of your naked eyes! Also, that explains all the 506 attempts in vain at trying to get a people-less shot, but what can you do?? It is what it is, and sometimes the understanding that people are as much entitled to every corner of the earth as you are, is much further consolidated during such times, and this feeling simply renders one more consciously accepting of the hazards of picking popular travel destinations! Nevertheless,
The Temple of Kukulcan greets millions of tourists at the forefront of the world-renowned Mayan ruin spread that has been preserved for centuries! El Castillo, as it is popularly referred to, stands
In my opinion, beaches are God’s way of showing us all a glimpse of how paradise may look like! And when they are as spotless and pristine as the ones in the Caribbean, it feels like you owe them a charming sonnet glorifying them of their stark gorgeousness!! Frolicsome, alabastrine sands flirting with your tootsies, cerulean waters romancing your lazy and idle bodies, tropical winds breezing through and caressing your hair;

Peru's Jungle City Guest post by: Nicole Tegge I think for most of us, we grow up with vivid images of the Amazon jungle: man-crushing anacondas, stalking jaguars, sky-scraping tree canopies. Well, at least I did, probably due to my fascination with all-things...
