The best of Mexico in 7 days!

Thumb stephanie walsh   discoveringice By Stephanie Walsh • For Andrew's trip to Mexico
"I backpacked around Mexico for 6 months without incident and I can tell you, you've chosen an amazing place to spend your vacation! :) If you're looking for adrenaline-pumping adventure, authentic cultural immersion and drop-dead-gorgeous beaches, then you've got to head to the Yucatan Peninsula; it has the perfect mix of tropical beaches with unique 'can't-be-found-anywhere-else-in-the-world' sights, such as the incredible underwater caves (cenotes) and impressive Mayan ruins dotted all around the Peninsula. You're also going at the perfect time for some breath-taking encounters with whale-sharks in the wild, if you're into that kind of adventure? I can recommend an amazing, off-the-beaten path place to see the whale sharks and more; getting away from the commercialized concrete jungle of places like Cancun. It's not that easy to find authentically Mexican places in the Yucatan, but it is if you know where to look and go! The beaches in the Yucatan are the best, the food is, as always, amazing and the people are very friendly. It's also a really really safe area of Mexico, so you don't need to worry about any safety issues while there. Pick me to write your itinerary and I'll give you lots of more great tips! "

I am a girl on a quest to live life on my own terms. I want to make a living from my passions; photography, travel, documentary, writing and anything else I discover along the way. I've lived in four continents and have travelled around Latin America during the last three years. I hope to continue doing so, taking photos and making memories and friends as I go.
