Anyone who lives in Cancun knows that locals love nothing better than to complain about how little culture the city has to offer. We’re only 40 years old, and the entire state of Quintana Roo used to only be populated by a few scattered Mayan villages. Over 90% of Cancun residents are originally [...]
I’ve been gone from the blog awhile… lots of work, lots of trips, but now I’m back. It looks like I have finally caught up on all my work. (Famous last words, amiright?) If you want to catch up on what I’ve been doing, I post mostly to my CancunGringa Instagram account now. [...]
I haven’t been posting as much lately because I’ve been ridiculously busy (a very very good kind of busy, even if it drives me crazy sometimes), but I did get some free time this weekend to go to the beach with some friends. We went to Forum Beach in the Cancun Hotel Zone on a [...]
Last Friday and Saturday, The City Beach Club in the Cancun Hotel Zone hosted SoyCerveza, an international beer festival on the beach. (For my non-Spanish speaking amigos, “SoyCerveza” translates to “I Am Beer”… not “Beer Made with Soy” haha)
There was a reggae band, a DJ and a cool lounge atmosphere in the evening. We [...]
Jorge had to work the graveyard shift Friday and Saturday. Since I don’t like being in the house by myself all night, I decided to make the most of it and spend each night out!
Friday Night in Party Center
I met up with Nadia for a girls night out at Señor Frog’s in [...]
When I asked for Reader Photo Requests last week, Meredith and Joe asked to see more of my day-to-day life. Sometimes things that seem so ordinary to me might be interesting to someone else, like my neighborhood.
I love my neighborhood! It’s very family-oriented and everyone always says “buenos días” when they see me walking [...]

As a grand finish to my whale shark tour posts, here are some photos of the beach at the Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa. We used Solo Buceo dive tour company, which is located right at the resort.
**Fun fact: I used to intern as a concierge at Dreams Cancun way back in 2007!**
Every single time I’ve gone snorkeling, whether it be in Belize, at Xcaret, at Xel-ha or in Akumal, I’ve experienced a kind of claustrophic panic. As soon as my head gets underwater, I flip out. Usually I’m able to relax after a few minutes, but snorkeling is still an uncomfortable feeling for me.
When Jorge, [...]
I haven’t done many posts about the dogs lately because it’s hard to get pictures of them (unless they look like this). They’re always on the move! Last night Suki (Dog #1) found a new favorite spot and I was finally able to take a photo.
Seconds later, Konan (Dog #3) fell/rolled off the [...]
