About the blog

Welcome! I’m Jessie and I’m here to help you discover an epic side of Mexico that you won’t find anywhere else.

I moved to Mexico City in 2018 after backpacking across Mexico and into Central and South America, because of all the places I’d been to, Mexico left me spellbound. 

Since then, I’ve lived in four distinct Mexico City neighborhoods, visited 24 of 32 Mexican states, road-tripped the length of the Pacific Coast into the USA (twice), and discovered unspoiled beaches and waterfalls along the way.

Today, I spend my time exploring the streets of Mexico City for the coziest cafe or the tastiest taco and road-tripping around Mexico with my partner and our dog. 

Here you’ll find Mexico travel tips and detailed guides of the very best Mexico has to offer, plus world-class little-known spots to make your next trip to Mexico an exhilarating, immersive, and unforgettable one!

Adventure Travel

It’s no doubt that Mexico is home to unparalleled natural beauty. Between the world-class beaches, tropical jungles, active volcanoes, and some of the highest mountains in North America, Mexico is a nature and adventure-lover’s paradise.

However, these more adventurous experiences often take a backseat to Mexico’s beaches and resorts, and I want to change that! I want to help all you nature-lovers and adventure-seekers experience the beauty and thrills that has yet to hit mainstream Mexico tourism.

Whether you’re interested in mining for fire opals or witnessing the great monarch migration, I’ll be here to help you find your next Mexican adventure. I’m actively exploring this stunning country and here is the first place you’ll know about the next greatest Mexican adventure!
