Things to do in San Cristobal de Las Casas

If you plan to visit San Cristobal de Las Casas we have good news for you – there is a lot of things to do there! We arrived in Mexico from South America, so we weren’t very excited about visiting San Cristobal de Las Casas. We have read that it is a colonial town and we have seen plenty of those already while traveling in South America. The main reason we stopped there was that it is a perfect stop between the Pacific coast of Mexico and the Yucatan area. San Cristobal is actually a very nice place to visit, in the end, we spend 3 nights there and we had a lot of fun! Situated quite high, about 2000 meters above sea level – it is a valley surrounded by green forest all around.

What not to miss in Israel

Israel is among the smallest countries in the world, but magically travelers can find everything they are seeking for. Desert and craters on the South, lively sand beaches along the center and waterfalls and streams in the green North. On the East, you have the most holly religious city in the world and on the West the most party liberal city of the Middle East. Because of the country size, it’s super easy to travel, there is no excuse why not to explore and have a taste of everything.

What to do in Palenque (Mexico)

Palenque is a town in the southern state of Chiapas and its located in the jungle, quite close to the border with Guatemala. We spend 3 days in Palenque and I remember it was super hot (we were visiting in July). I think it was more than 40 degrees Celsius but that didn’t stop us to explore around. The city itself doesn’t have a lot to offer but we still enjoyed our stay. We arrived in Palenque mostly because it is only a couple of kilometers away from its famous Palenque Mayan ruins, hidden deep in the jungle. I think it’s the most impressive archeological site we have seen in all Mexico! Palenque was – among Tikal, Chichen Itza, and Calakmul – one of the most powerful cities in the ancient Mayan civilization. Another thing that makes it so special is that the ruins are situated in a Palenque national park, which is home for toucans, monkeys, reptiles, and other jungle animals.

How many days to spend in Sarajevo

Sarajevo is an amazing city, not big but with so much stuff to explore and so much stuff to do. We weren’t sure how many days to spend in Sarajevo so we booked a hostel in the center of the city for 3 nights, which was enough but I could easily stay one more, the place has so much to offer. You can explore the old town Bascarsija, eat some amazing local food, join a free walking tour, visit museums, hike, visit an abandoned bobsleigh and even ride a bicycle all the way back to Sarajevo.

Bacalar lagoon Mexico

After the tourist horror of Playa del Carmen and Tulum, we wanted to escape to a quiet place. We heard a lot of good things about Bacalar lagoon in Mexico, so we decided to check it out. It sounded cool, a unique lake of 7 colors, with big swings on the crystal water with white sand on the bottom, the place sounded like the Maldives to us.

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.
