We arrived at the Osa Peninsula by late morning and stocked up with groceries before heading along a rough road to the other side of the peninsula. The end of the road brought us to a small town called Carate – well I’m not sure if it’s really a town. More like an extremely small […]

After a full day of driving along beautiful windy mountain roads down to the coast from Oaxaca, we pulled into the small beach town of Puerta Arista, about 3 hours north of the Guatemala border. We headed straight to the turtle ‘camp’ that I had read about before they closed for the evening.

Filed Under:
In the morning, Marina told us to look around – and we did. The desert was green. Over the past few weeks, for some godly reason the skies chose to let loose – for the first time in 7 years. There are Mexican children who saw the rain for the first time. The hardy seeds […]
