This Mexico travel guide will help you plan your trip to Mexico. Here you will find the best Mexico travel tips based on our Mexico adventure. Traveling to Mexico was a spontaneous decision, according to the plan we were supposed to go to from Peru to Bolivia but due to some visa issues, we just decided to check out Mexico instead. The turn of events was one of our best decisions we did during our South America travel. When we think about the word fun, Mexico comes to our mind. This country is an indulgence to the senses, with vivid colors, savory food, sandy beaches, and rich culture that goes back centuries ago. We had so much to do, see, and eat that being bored was never an option. Everything is colorful in Mexico, we absolutely love it! Besides that Mexico has outstanding nature, hospitable people, rich history, and delicious food!

Ecuador is located between Colombia and Peru, and it is one of the smallest countries in South America. Very small but extremely diverse. And very easy to travel to! Traveling in Ecuador will be an active one, and you won’t get bored not even for a second!

Best things to do in Dolenjska

Best things to do in Dolenjska | Slovenia’s Southeastern region

Dolenjska is full of vineyards and most of them produce a unique wine, called Cvicek. This wine is so unique that, if you mention the word “Dolenjska” to any Slovene, the first word out of their mouths will be “Cvicek”. It is also called a Slovenian specialty because it is one of the few wines in the world that is made out of red and white grapes. Next to every vineyard, you can notice zidanica – a beautiful grape cottage, also known for this area. We suggest you visit one, it is a unique experience! In every cottage, you will find a wine cellar with the grape press and the living area on the top. The living area is meant for occasional overnight stays during intensive work in the vineyard.

Kostanjevica na Krki what to do

Kostanjevica na Krki what to see | Ideas for trips around Slovenia

It was the first time visit for both of us and we absolutely loved it! Kostajevica na Krki is the smallest and one of the oldest towns in Slovenia and the locals are proud of this wonder of nature. Why do we call it a beautiful wonder of nature? Because the old part of the city is an island, situated on the Krka river. The city structure with two parallel streets has been preserved to this day and the city is declared as a cultural monument and fully protected. Because of its location on the river, the city gets flooded often, and sometimes the only possible way to get around is by boat. Kostanjevica na Krki is also called »Slovenian Venice«.

Machu Picchu on a budget

Every year it attracts a lot of tourists and I think I can say that its one of the most visited cites in all South America. Almost 2500m high Macchu Pichhu is the lost city of the old Inca kingdom, and one of the 7 wonders in the world. The main thing is to get from Cusco to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu pueblo), and there is no road leading there. Aguas Calientes is the closest town to Machu Picchu, its a very cute little town, great to explore. Usually, you spend a night there and then early morning you head to Mach Picchu, by bus or on foot.
