Places I Follow

Tess's Activity

AAlaska: Looking for adventurers

I would suggest looking for  hiking, cycling and adventure groups or in each area that she is visiting. Most are always willing to welcome guests. I did something similar finding people on CouchSurfing as well. Meet-up is another option. Good luck! See More

ACancun: What are the most popular areas to stay in Cancun?

It really depends on your budget. Staying downtown and taking the 10 peso bus to the beach is a good option for the budget traveler. Beaches in Mexico are public, so you can walk the length of the beach if you like and go swimming anywhere. There are all varieties of hotels... See More

QPuntarenas: What to do in the Puntarenas area of Costa Rica?

Ed and others have offered great suggestions. For food, be sure to try Poc Chuc, Cochinita Pibil, Pollo Pibil, Sopa de Lima, panuchos, salbutes and Huevos Motulenos. The licuados are also refreshing. I also like the smaller villages, but while I agree that the buses are... See More

I haven't been to a place in Alaska that I didn't like! I really like Valdez​. Plenty to do there - museums, hatchery, kayaking and other outdoor activities. Haines​ is another favorite. Be sure to take bug spray as the mosquitoes... See More

ACancun: Limited Time, Unlimited Energy! What to do?

Moon Palace is a spectacular property, but you are a a captive guest and not close to public transportation. You will have to take a taxi to get out of the resort - unless TBEX has arranged something. To see a bit of more traditional Mexico, head down the Puerto... See More

ARiviera Maya: Diving in Riviera Maya or Cancun?

I would head to Cozumel​​. It has easy access to the reef, which is excellent for diving. See More
