The BEST Mexican Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole is basically LIFE here in Mexico. At least for me, anyways ;). It’s the first thing I look for on a restaurant menu, and pretty much order it everywhere I go! (Manne’s has the best guac in Playa, if you’re wondering!) So it pretty much blows my mind when people are confused about how to make it… It just seems so simple! After getting asked SO many times how I make it, I’ve decided…

The Riviera Maya is a beautiful place to visit, with a TON of things to do. It can be hard to decide how to spend your days here, especially if you’re trying to stick to a budget.

This post will share some of the best food carts in Playa, but will no way hit all of them! There are some seriously amazing stands here in town.

My Favourite Photos in New York City

Weve visited New York City twice now. Once in the fall of 2015, and again in the fall of 2016. We quickly fell in love with the city, and made it a mission to see as much of it as we could. During that mission I took a TON of photos. I couldn’t just let the, hide away in a folder on my computer, so I decided to compile a few of my favourites here!…

BROchetas Restaurant Review, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I had been hearing about BROchetas since our last visit to Playa in early 2016. We finally made it in for lunch last week, and it became a fast favourite- especially for Seth! So much so that he convinced me to go back 2 more times that same week! Brocheta translates to ‘skewer’ in English, so it’s not hard to guess what we’ll be having for lunch!  I noticed they had a special that included 2…

Free Food Tour of Greenwich Village, NYC

After our walking tour of Central Park went so well, we decided to search FreeToursByFoot for another tour to fit into our free day. There were 2 the fit the bill.. a graffiti walk around Harlem, or a food tour of Greenwich Village. As much as I like seeing street art, food tends to always swing the vote for us! By the time I booked, there was only one spot left on the tour.. So…
