Cruise Ship Food for the Culinary Snob

I had heard a lot about the cruising lifestyle and contemplated if this would be a vacation style that would suit the foodie in me. I couldn't imagine not loving boating around the ocean with exotic ports to choose from, nightly entertainment already planned for me and thousands of people who could potentially turn into […]

Tour the Tulum Mayan Ruins in Mexico

I had severe anxiety trying to decide which Mayan Ruin I wanted to tour on my Western Caribbean vacation. Thought the Tulum Mayan Ruins in Mexico were a standout, both Belize and Mexico boast some of the most awe-striking.

Walk the Suspension Bridge in Roatan, Honduras

Monkey Around at Gumbalimba Park in Honduras

I have a bit of a, not-so-secret, obsession with monkeys. Not the kind that throw their crap at you at the zoo, but the small cuddly ones that you could slap a diaper on and tote around like a hairy child. I was on an uncontrollable high when I found out that my dream of holding a monkey […]

But, when I heard that there was such a thing as cave tubing my direction turned to the water-filled, bat-infested,  claustriphobically chilly caves deep in the […]

The Grand Cayman Turtle Farm

The actual goal on my Bucket List is to "Watch Turtles Hatch & Run for the Ocean" and this was kind of close…sort of…ok, not really. But, it was really cool and a new experience so that warrants at least a mention. Our recent Swimming with the Stingray excursion included a trip to the Cayman Turtle […]
