    Ixtapa Island, Ixtapa, Guerrero, MX

    March 17 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We reached Playa Linda in Ixtapa to take a ferry to Ixtapa island from there. We had initially thought of spending some time at Playa Linda but it was underwhelming and the queue for taking a boat to Ixtapa Island was quite long. We bought tickets and reached the island in about 15-20 minutes by boat. We first went to Playa Coral which as the name suggests is a Coral beach. The beach was quite rocky, difficult to walk around without footwear. The water was also murky so nothing much to see while snorkeling. We then went to Playa Varadero which is much better. The soft light sand and calm waters made it ideal to just play around in water with my little niece who is quite scared of big waves. They have lot of options for water sports as well there, I wasn't interested in them, sis and hub went for some ride though.Read more

    Barra de Potosi, Ixtapa

    March 16 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We checked in quite early in the morning so we planned to take it easy and just chill on our first day of vacation instead of running around to touristy palces. We enjoyed Jacuzzi pool at our hotel (Las Palmas Luxury Villas - the best resort we have stayed at so far!) from morning till late afternoon. The sea view from balcony is great , more so while sipping through wine while in personal pool.
    We went to Barra de Potosi where lake merges into the ocean towards evening , got our dinners packed from one of the beach shacks there and returned to our resort as none of us wanted to enjoy the jacuzzi any lesser.

    Grutas de Tolantongo, Hidalgo, Mexico

    January 1 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Grutas Tolantongo are a collection of hot spring pools built into a cliff in the semi desert of Mezquital valley in Hidalgo, Mexico.The pools are filled with warm water which is full of salts and minerals. The water is heated by the surrounding volcanic mountains but cold water is mixed into it before the resort supplies it to the pools. Hence, the water is lukewarm.Some of the pools have small springs of hot warm water falling into them under which you can go and take a splash of water. It was surreal to just lie in pool of warm water while overlooking the canyon. An experience like no other.

    Also, there are caves and a tunnels to explore, a hot spring river to swim in, and a pool with a waterslide. The river isn't much deep at any point, maximum depth would be 5 feet. The water inside the tunnel is slightly warmer than the tepid one in pools. Inside the tunnel the warm water drips and sprays out from the walls and ceiling thus showering us while we walked towards the small pool at the end of tunnel. All these sites - the Pools, river, pozitas (smaller pools), the waterfall and the cave (gruta) are in tolantongo but not nearby. There is a considerable distance between each of the sites. Like, it takes around 25 minutes by walk to go from pools to the river. So because of this distance and the size of the whole park, there is an insane number of stairs that one had to frequent up an down to go to these sites. It's beautiful but definitely tiring!

    Bernal

    December 25, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Apparently this is world's third largest monolith which we tried to hike up (We knew we wouldn't finish, and we didn't :P ) This is what happens when two extremely unfit and lazy people try to venture into uncomfortable zones of being active on Christmas day - scale only halfway through and give up, come down to the base and have Cocolocos and Micheladas {to refresh after the hike (?) you see!} And head to a vineyard right after!. we went to Finca Sala friexenet vineyard where we took a tour of the dried up vineyard, the cellar 25 mtrs deep. Tasted a glass of white wine and got the glasses as souvenirRead more
