I had long promised that I would go messing with the trips prior to April 2006 (start of CHAVETAS.ES 1.0) but at the end between trip and trip I can't find that moment to do it. At the moment I had only been able to do it with Florida 1991.

On this occasion, and although with "something" of delay, I wanted to dedicate this story to my father, one of my inspirations that have led me to travel.

!! Happy father's day dad !!!




For this moment I have decided to express another story about the trip that I remember with love, the trip to RIVIERA MAYA of 1996, or rather, travel to Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean area, because at that time, the concept of the Riviera Maya did not yet exist (it would be born 3 years later).


That trip was not only one of the best trips I remember with my parents and my sister, but it was one of the first to discover a new culture far from European ones. The Mayan Civilization and its legacies.


Thus, the DAY 3: CHICHÉN ITZA, MARAVILLA MAYA it takes us into an archaeological complex that is not surprising that it has been named with one of the 7 Wonders of the World, because of its state of conservation and because it takes you to a golden age of what was an incredible culture.



It would not be our only contact with the Mayan legacy in the Yucatan Peninsula, since we would again enjoy a combination of ruins, privileged location and beach the DAY 14: TULUM, LAST MAYAN DRESSES.



But Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean is much more, it is diving, snorkeling, corals and hundreds of goldfish (DAY 10: COZUMEL, BETWEEN COLORS)…


… Are ecological parks, shows of the Mayan culture, natural aquariums, caves, rivers or natural pools (DAY 11: XCARET, NATURAL REFUGE)…




... and of course, it is beach, sun, white sands, crystal clear waters, heat, tequila, party and much muchooooooo relax !!




The other day, having coffee, I sat with my parents and Paula watching old albums from when my parents were young boys. At that time they left with a tent, the "R-12" and some cans of fabada, route through Europe forward. Italy, France, Belgium, Holland ... To them I owe all my hobby to travel, and now, to Paula.


I hope that, despite the certain ramblings (as it has been a whole "research work" between videos, photos, memories and coffee evenings) you like reading it as much as I tell it.

Now ... for our next trip. These days more details (no waiting, haha)
