    Short visit in Tuxtla

    April 21, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    During my time as a waitress in Cologne, I had met a really nice couple from Tuxtla Gutiérrez that invited me to stay with them. As my flight was already the next morning, I couldn't stay long, but it was enough to grab a michelada in town.
    In their house I felt like in a luxury hotel: I had my own, huge room with tv, couch, bathroom and home trainer, a big terrace, their was a pool and high tech doors.Read more

    San Cristóbal de las casas

    April 19, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    In the end I stayed a day longer in Mazunte than I had planned, since all busses were full due to the Easter holidays. In retrospective though, that was even better, as now I could travel together with Alex from Barcelona. I had already been hanging out with him and Francesco (Italian) in Mazunte all the time, mostly somewhere in between beach and the shady hostel.
    In San Cristóbal we spent the first two days walking through the town. In addition, there were many activities in the hostel, for example pizza / sushi / burger nights, parties, ping pong or just curing your hangover in a hammock in the garden. We had to get used to the cold though: since San Cristóbal lies at 2100m, temperatures vary extremely throughout the day.

    Dolphin time

    April 16, 2017, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    I got up early today to take a boat trip along the cost (and of course to see the sunrise). We got to see some turtles, flying manta rays and lots of dolphins. They came really close to the boat, sometimes they were just centimeters away from my hand. Only when we wanted to join them swimming they went away. At the end we had a tiny snorkelling session close to the beach and surprisingly I even saw a sea horse!Read more

    Mazunte sunset & sunrise

    April 15, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Following the Oaxaca coast around 1h from Puerto Escondido, you get to the village of Mazunte. Except for lying on the beach (you don't even need to leave the hostel for that). However, you get spectacular sunrise and sunset views, either from Punta Cometas (which you reach by a 20 minute walk uphill) or, if you've booked an "estrella", comfortably from your bed.Read more

    Punta Zicatela, Puerto Escondido

    April 14, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    People didn't exaggerate when they told me about the beauty of Puerto Escondido. I'm staying at a hostel that's directly on the beach of Punta Brisas de Zicatela. I spent my day enjoying the sun, climbing around the cliffs and watching pelicans “falling“ from the sky into the water in order to catch some fish.Read more

    Veracruz reunion

    April 13, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    My time in Veracruz was dedicated to meeting Gerardo, Fran and Richi again. We went to the beach, had some beer, great Italian food and walked around the town. I also met a big part of Gerardo's family and friends of his parents. I felt really special, as everyone seemed to be wanting to get to know me :DRead more

    Villa Rica beach

    April 11, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    I left Guadalajara really early to get my 6 am flight to Veracruz, where Gerardo picked me up at the airport. After a huge Veracruzan breakfast at the famous Parroquia and recovering some sleep, his parents took us to Villa Rica. The small village not even offers a virgin beach with beautiful rock formations, but also some totonaca ruins in the surrounding mountains.Read more

    Guadalajara Centro

    April 10, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    I spent this day walking around Guadalajara's city center and Tlaquepaque, eating ice cream and looking for artisan crafts. In the evening I went out for some pulque (fermented agave “juice“) with Andrés.

    Bosque La Primavera

    April 9, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Today I had a little "hike" with Andrés. Actually we didn't walk that much, but the combination of the strong sun and the up to 80°C warm volcanic river were enough to almost knock us out. There was barely and shade and since it hadn't been raining since september we were basically breathing in dust. Anyway it's a great sight to pass a quiet and relaxing day.Read more
