Tamaulipas


09012401.jpg

Our first state south of the border! The people of Tamaulipas quickly put our fears to rest - the Mexican people are some of the most friendly we've ever met.

Veracruz


09022002.jpg

Gosh darn! Veracruz is one long state! We had a whole host of adventures here and it's hard to sum it up. We made the transition into a hot and humid climate, which makes cycling difficult. But still - we met many wonderful people who added magic to our journey.

Mexico City


09021309.jpg

From the port of Veracruz we left our bikes behind took a side trip to Mexico City by bus. We discovered the canals of Xochimilco and spent two delightful days there.

Tabasco


09030202.jpg

Tabasco is a small state, but it's large on friendliness! (Are you noticing a theme here?) The highlight of Tabasco was staying a couple of days with the Lazo family in Villahermosa.

Palenque


09022715.jpg

From Villahermosa, we took a side trip to see the Mayan ruins in Palenque. It's amazing to walk around and think of the great civilization that lived there 1500 years ago.

Campeche


09030802.jpg

The best part of Campeche is the beach! For a couple days we cycled right along the white sand beaches of southern Mexico and had beautiful vistas with every twist and turn.

Quintana Roo


09031301.jpg

We didn't spend much time in Quintana Roo at all - only about 100 miles through the jungle of southern Yucatan.

Our Campsite122 viewsWe had a really hard time finding a place to camp - there were no houses around for miles and miles, and the whole area was fenced off. The few places that weren't fenced off were so thick with vegetation we couldn't fit the tent in. We finally found this spot and it was perfect! The kids had a blast climbing the walls.
