Mexico: A thousand places to discover

Mexico: A thousand places to discover

Almu post, Tumaini communication
We start our trip in Mexico along the coast of Cancun, the flight is cheaper than if it is made to Mexico DF. We didn't really like the idea of flying there because we knew that much of it would be full of big hotels. It is true that Cancun is, there are many all-inclusive places but there are still nearby places where you can get to know this area in a different way.

We did not spend any day there, we went directly to Valladolid. A small city that serves as a base to visit impressive cenotes and the famous ruins of Chichén Itzá.

From there we went back to the coast, we chose Tulum because there was a project that worked with turtles and environmental education. Soon we will give you more details about this project with which we are going to collaborate.

You can leave the bike tied to any palm tree
Although Tulum is not cheap, you can move freely and stay in hostels. The town does not have much, but within a short distance you can see the Mayan ruins, very beautiful beaches and cenotes. You just have to rent a bike and start the adventure.

After spending several days there, we began our journey to Chiapas. Our first stop was Palenque, the ruins that we liked the most. They are in the middle of the jungle and it is not as saturated with people as Chichén Itzá.

Stunning views of the Palenque ruins
From Palenque we went to San Cristóbal de las Casas, a city to experience because just walking through its cobbled streets and seeing its colonial architecture makes you not want to leave here for a long time.

We have been able to visit various projects that do important work for the community. Here we are going to collaborate with a cooperative of indigenous artisan women, with an educational center on the outskirts of the city and with a free education school. You will be able to see these projects soon on our website.

San Cristóbal deserves a special post so soon we will tell you why we have fallen in love with this city.
