It's now just 3 weeks until Belinda and I head off to Mexico on our latest adventure. I've been doing a little reflecting lately on how lucky we are to be in the position we are where we can do these sort of trips with the regularity we are. One of the benefits of having raised families early and living a fairly frugal lifestyle means we now find that our time is our own and through hard work and careful planning we can do these things.
We are flying in to Cancun and exploring the whole of the Yucatan peninsular which includes the states of Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche. Birding is obviously top of my list but one advantage of this trip is that the Mayan archaelogical sites which interest Belinda are some of the best birding sites too. The food and drink look like they might be rather nice too...!
The map below shows the rough route we plan to take over the course of a leisurely 3 weeks.
