Guadalajara, Jalisco

After getting the car all fixed and having arranged another co-pilot we decided to hit the road again but this time heading to one of the biggest cities in mexico –Guadalajara. I have heard so many good things about GDL before: that the people are beautiful, that the city is boasting in designy and cool…

Puebleando@ Tepoztlán

I love Tepoz!! Definitely one of my favorite places in Mexico, has everything to make you happy and to make you come back.  For the start, you can get your workout (feels like a squat challenge combined with some good cardio) climbing in the natural reserve of Tepozteco, and trust me your sweat will be rewarded…

Puebleando@ Huamantla, Tlaxcala

Huamantla is one of the 83 Mexican  “magical towns”, a term and an initiative created by the Secretary of Tourism in 2001 to both boost the tourism and acknowledge the cultural heritage of each of the towns. Huamantla itself seemed pretty random, another little square, cathedral, market.   What seemed to be the biggest “attraction” was…

Mariachis+the ultimate playlist/ Garibaldi, Mexico City

Last Friday one of my “mexican dreams” came true when along with a group of friends we decided to start the weekend off by visiting one of the most emblematic spots in the City- Garibaldi. The square is full of mariachis waiting on being asked to play a song- or a full concierto. Although at the…

Puebleando@ Tlaxcala, Hacienda de Soltepec

Following the list of haciendas (country estates) and pueblos màgicos (“magical towns”), we decided to make Tlaxcala our next destination.   Number 9 from the list of haciendas, the estate of Soltepec, is literally in the middle of nowhere, on the way to the town of Huamantla. Surrounded by dried corn fields, agave plants and cactuses, with a volcano Malinche overlooking the countryside… It is probably the…

Puebleando@ Puebla+Cholula

As much as I love living in Mexico City, it´s always good to get away for a few days and catch a breath somewhere less contaminated. Especially when the pollution reaches the highest levels in over 10 years like this week.   More here & here On a brighter note, the spring has arrived to the City. Well,…

Veggie in Mexico/ Wegetarianka w Meksyku

“Domi so what are you gonna eat in Mexico?” “Isn´t it just like meat all the time?” “What do you mean, meatless burritos?” I was wondering myself as well! If being vegetarian/vegan was still not so common in Spain, how am I going to survive in Mexico? I though rice and beans. And avocado, loads…

Guatemala- Tierra de Visas/ Odswiezanie wizy w Gwatemali

As many international expats who live in Mexico, one of the “issues” I have to take care of is the visa. Arriving in November and entering as a tourist allowing to stay 6 months in Mexico. A pretty good excuse to travel around North/Central or South America  every couple of months to get a new…
