Cancun ruins, part 2

Not all of the tourist know it but there are two sets of ruins in Cancun. The second, more remote, less touristy ruins are from fishing village which is considered to be ancient Cancun, the ruins are called El Meco and are located in the northern beach part of the place. While ruins in the tourist area have a great museum, they can't really offer much in ruins department, after all it used to be a very wealthy and big but farm. El Meco ruins is actually a small Mayan village and it preserved quite well. The only downside of it is the size, I think it's hard to enjoy it more than an hour. On the bright side during the seaweed season the cleanest beaches are located close so if you happen to be in Cancun it might be a great idea to plan on a beach day. Also there are mostly locals on the beaches nearby so you will get a different vibe. And marines with yatchs and boats are literally everywhere so you are more than welcome to enjoy these kind of views (I very much did). Also while exploring the ruins we met different tourists and even managed to get a photo of us together! I am always very happy when we have proper photo together.






For the walk I have chosen neutral palette. These shorts are still comfortable and cute to wear so I enjoy wearing them while I can. It is actually nice to feel something about your belly that is not a dress. White shirt is a staple classic and I definitely enjoy wearing it. My new and also beige baseball cap finished up the look (it has "outdoors" written all over it). I am so happy I finally have a baseball cap, it is an absolute must for me to have.




Bonus: Find all the lizards photo:


I was wearing:
Befree shorts
Uniqlo shirt
c/o iGlassesshop glasses
Cuidado con el Perro cap
Fila flipflops

 

Have a nice day,

  1. I have been to Cancun a few times. On one trip, I visited Chichen- Itza on a tour. The ruins you are talking about look less touristy, more room to roam, which is good! Much of Cancun, as you know, can get quite crowded.

    1. I have a feeling that Cancun is always crowded, at least downtown. I definitely fail to see few people outside at any given moment. I don't mind that at all, it's a part of the charm for me really. I notice it gets less on tourist department as the summer grows near which is fine as well.

    1. I wouldn't call a trip or a travel even anything located in the city of residence. the ruins are about 6 kilometers to the north from my home so it wasn't a big deal. however I was very concerned I would loose mobility and desire to walk during the pregnancy (especially given my back issues after the breakage) but I am absolutely free to walk for as much as I want even at 38 weeks. even if I will start to be too tired to relax, it won't be for that long anyway. I get tired faster during the pregnancy as well but normally I am quite fast to recover. I try to catch the tiredness as fast as possible and just sit for 15-20 minutes somewhere pretty to regain my strength (thankfully I don't need it all that much).
      I saw your rainy entertainment, Iooks fun, I love board games.

    1. I think there are more iguanas here than pigeons. I don't mind though they are charming (and herbivore so in case you ever here don't need to worry it might do anything to you)

Women's Success Awards

November 29ty there was a great awards ceremony in Moscow. We've been celebrating the Women's Success Awards by Women's Time magazine. Not only it is important to appreciate the work and achievements of people no matter of their sex but setting an additional pattern makes appreciation wider in general. I was honored to attend the awards and want to share my experience with you. RU: 29 Ноября в Москве прошла отличная церемония награждения. Мы отмечали Women's Success Awards журнала Women's Time. Мне кажется, что важно не только отмечать достижения и работу людей вне зависимости их пола, но несколько сузить выбор иногда, чтобы посмотреть на достижения более широко. Я была очень рада посетить эту церемонию и разделить мои впечатления с моими читателями. For the event I've chosen a long dress (it's awards after all) from my fellow blogger, heeled boots to keep my feet warm as it recently got even colder in Moscow and a funn

See you in glasses, Cowboy!

I am so excited to share one more cooperation with Glassesshop ! I was even more excited because now living in Mexico I do need more sun glasses than I used to have before. During our last and very fruitful collaboration I received three lovely pairs. Two of them are regular sunglasses which were immediately "shared" with my partner Max (he loves both pairs) and one of them is only for me. It's a great option for travels to save space if you ask me. Transition glasses where you can simply magnet the sunglasses part and take it off in a flash. Super handy! And... as I promised The outfit I wear with transforming glasses is a new item from Cuidado con el Perro x Cowboy Bebop. I am a huge of anime and watched it an insane number of times. I just had to have something from it. This little item is great for Cancun climate and reptile like me. I enjoy wearing it the evenings when it gets a little colder and no sun. I really enjoy having Faye on right and Spike on my left all
