Mexico42 days / October - November 2020
My backpacking journey through Mexico. I travelled to different cities and experienced a rich and different culture to Ireland. The street food... muy rico!
Highs & Lows
Exploring Teotihuacan, an ancient set of cluster of Mayan pyramids.
Food poisoning from street food.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Night life is pretty poor during covid times but I guess thats the price you pay for travel during the pandemic.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Some unpleasent guys at the beach have a business of ripping off tourists for surfboard rentals. Best bet is to get your rental through the hostel.
How was the food?
No need for a restaurant! The street food is so damn good!
What tips would you give a friend?
Use Uber as much as possible.
Sunscreen, shorts, portable charger.
Uber is probably your best bet but public transport is very cheap and efficient.
