Our trip to Merida turns out to be a nightmare, just after 1am in the middle of nowhere we are woken up by an announcement in Spanish we don't quite understand. However, we notice that the bus has stopped and everyone is getting off so we follow suit. We stumble out half asleep and are momentarily blinded by the headlights of police vans …

Yucatán's cultural hub

A travel blog entry by bulaska


... a touristic season at all and it was quite hard to find a bigger group for a boat tour, to split the cost. Finally, we were a group of six and paid 230 MXN each. I find it overpriced for what we got in exchange... The longest part of the 1,5-hour trip was the boat ride. We saw only about twenty flamingos, apparently it wasn't the best time to spot them. They told us the season for ...

José and the Cockroach beast

A travel blog entry by nickymaus


... Und ich daher etwas nervös...

Gut zugegeben, die Riesenkakerlake hat vielleicht nicht gerade unterstützend gewirkt, vermutlich weil Madu mir einmal erzählt hat, dass er mit Spinnen und Schlangen leben kann, aber nicht mit Kakerlaken.
Die irrte also im Höllentempo im Zimmer herum, während mein Begleiter panisch seinen Koffer schloss und ins Badezimmer flüchtete. Schön.
Blieben ich und die - wie mir schien - in Lichtgeschwindigkeit krabbelnde Kakerlake.

    We stayed at the Las Arecas for just 1 night but we could've stayed for longer. Mauro was very welcoming and stepping into the guesthouse after a crazy 21 hour bus ride was like stepping into a quiet, cool and cozy oasis. We had a private room with bathroom on the 2nd floor and the room was spacious and comfortable. The location is pretty central - maybe a few blocks from the main centre but it was nice a pleasant walk around town. The price was very decent too.
