We arrived back in Cancun, after a great trip back to the UK, ready to head for Belize and continue our trip through Central America.  However, there were a few places still to seen as we headed south.

From Salina Cruz we headed inland to Chiapas, with our first stop, the Canon del Sumidero, an amazing canyon through which the Rio Grijalva flows.  There was lots of bird life and a few crocodiles sitting on the bank, watching the world go by as we whizzed down its len...

Oaxaca started for us as a beautiful drive through the Sierra Madre de Oaxaca mountains, stopping at a tiny hamlet and beautiful convent in Yanhuitlan, appearing out of nowhere along the road.

It didn't take long to drive to Cholula and Puebla, just south of Mexico City.  Supposedly the Spanish built some 365 churches in Cholula.  We only visited a few, including the one built on top of a hill, built in fact on top of an Aztec pyramid - The Great Pyramid of...

We left Guanajuato on the 23 April and continued our circular tour of Mexico by heading north and a little east through the Bajio and what turned out to be a series of Pueblos Magicos.

We arrived in Guanajuato specifically to learn Spanish and fell in love with the place.  Camped high on a hill the other side of town, our daily walk to school took us through one of the many tunnels that deal with the traffic in a place that is shoehorned into a narro...

We left Guadalajara on the 1 April and headed east, and  a little north to Aguascalientes.  Choosing not to bathe in the local hot springs, we instead toured the beautiful city with its colonial monuments, it having been founded in 1575 by the Spanish.  A trip to the M...
