  • When I was 9-years-old, I carefully duct taped a world map to a wall in my room. I labeled each country on the map where I wanted to travel with purple tape.  I labeled the purple tape with numbers, starting with 1, on where I wanted to travel the most.

  • Famous dense forests filled with vegetation, legendary pyramids, the close proximity to the second greatest coral reef in the world, and the eminent beaches are only a few of the wonders that the Maya Riviera has to offer.

From the moment we stepped foot on the plane we were in another world. Even the flight attendants did not speak English. For...

  • I knew I was in for an adventure when I pulled back the shower curtain in my hotel and discovered a small lizard, of at least 8 centimeters, with translucent skin and red eyes, scurrying up the walls. The run-down streets of Puerto Limón, Costa Rica are not exactly inviting; the 103º F heat and...

  • One night, my dad had told my sisters and I that he had a surprise for us in the morning. We were all excited to find out what it was so we all went to sleep early. We woke up in the morning to find all of our bags in the car. We asked him what was going on, but he just replied, 'It is a surprise...

  •               I did not arrive in Oaxaca until midnight; from the colectivo (shuttle), my first views of México terrified me: armed police on every corner, not something I see in my San José, California, neighborhood. In daylight, however, I learned the true charm of the city, and of the simple...
