      Hey there, AB!

      Yes, for the most part doing well! Veracruz was actually a letdown and quite skippable. Very dirty and polluted.
      No beaches.

      We’re so glad to share our trip with you! Working on setting up a link on the site to our entire photo gallery.

      Hasta luego!
      H & E

    I agree with AB, I’m kind o f on vacation in this moment checking into your adventure. Thanks for sharing it!

    Too bad about the commercialization at Chichén Itzá, that ruins it! If something becomes a wonder of the world it should also be protected from profiteering. That place was one of my favorite memories when I visited Mexico.

    If you guys go to Guatemala’s Tikal ruins and go to the top of the southern most temple and look over the top of the forest you’ll see a scene that was filmed in the original star wars.

      Hi Mark – great to have you following along! Thanks for the tip on Tikal. It will be one of our first stops after crossing into Guatemala.

      I think Chichen Itza left us with a bad taste in our mouth as we hired the cheapest guide we could find who was more interested in showing us the souvenir stalls than the ruins! They also don’t let you climb the main pyramid there anymore, after an elderly woman fell to her death a couple of years ago. I imagine it was a totally different experience before all the changes!
