Mexico is so much more than resorts and beautiful beaches. Mexico is home to charming colonial cities, stunning mountain landscapes, turquoise cenotes, impressive Mayan ruins, mouth-watering food, exquisite handicrafts, and so much more. It’s an astonishingly diverse country with deep roots in indigenous culture, cuisine, and history.

My Mexico Story
For so many years, I overlooked Mexico as a travel destination. Anytime I could travel, I wanted to visit a new country. I’d crossed Mexico off my country list as a kid, and although I caught the travel bug on that trip, I wasn’t in a rush to return. Anytime I felt the itch of wanderlust, I booked a flight across the ocean.
But at the height of the pandemic, when most countries closed their borders, Mexico welcomed visitors. My husband I got married during the pandemic and to cancel our honeymoon, so a year and half after our pandemic wedding, we booked an international trip to Sayulita, Mexico. We quickly fell in love with Sayulita and enjoyed $25 massages on the beach, delicious vegan food, and surf lessons.
A stranger took this of us in Sayulita before tapping on our shoulders to tell us how cute we looked watching the sunset.

When we returned to the U.S., we started planning our next trip to Mexico. Six months after our trip to Mexico vacation, we returned. We spent one week working remotely from Mexico City and one week celebrating our anniversary in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca.

On tours and day trips, we met digital nomads and backpackers traveling full-time through Mexico. Inspired, we began planning to follow in their footsteps as digital nomads.
A few months later, we ended our lease in the U.S., got rid of our belongings, and booked a one-way ticket to Mexico. Since then, I’ve visited nine Mexican states and spent months exploring this incredibly diverse country. I can’t wait to share more of this incredible country with you in my Mexico travel guides.
