Mexico 2022 Days 1 and 2

I am first posting our Mexico trip since it came first and then I will move onto my Austria and Poland trip. And mix in some gift guides and other things in between.

We went to Mexico for Fall break which was October 1st through the 8th. We traveled on Southwest this time as I grabbed tickets the day they went on sale. We usually fly United or American and we think we will stick with that unless we are not traveling with the girls. It was too much of a hassle with the checking in right on the dot and still getting far down in B. Just not my thing when I travel. 

Anyways, we fly out bright and early at 5:20 am. The girls were so excited. We have never been during October and let me tell you, it is more quiet but way more humid. You will see how crazy our hair got over the trip. Especially the girls.

Did I mention that it also rained a lot more? But usually a half hour or less and cooled things off.

This building in the back in something I had to post. It has been half built for years and they are finally tearing it down!

Another view.

We had a hard time with dinners. We always go to a few places and those were either closed the entire time we were there or some opened the last couple days. In Mexico, it gets too hot, so when we came is when they usually start opening things back up. Lesson learned but we still found great places to go to.

The first night we had tacos at Sonorita Olas Atlas. We have been there before and it is always good. The girls loved the pastor tacos. And it rained really hard for about 20 minutes while we were there.

After dinner, we walked around, got some money and enjoyed the cool air. We also grabbed a bottle of wine from a local place and took it back to drink it on the patio.
Oh and the first two days we had sirens going off at 10 pm for about 15 minutes warning of a hurricane coming in. It went north of us and we only got some rain from it.

Sunday morning, we got up and headed to our favorite breakfast place, Fredy Tucan's. We wanted to go swimming after, but they told us that due to the storm, they wouldn't open the pool until Monday. So we had to find something else to do. We found a 4D museum a few streets away which was really cool. We got a personal tour and the girls were free. Make sure you check out Tripadvisor for deals.

My breakfast!

Everything was in black light and 4D. The pictures don't do it justice.

After the museum, we grabbed a quick lunch and then went to dinner at Monzon Pizza and Brewery. We have gone there a lot and it gave us leftovers for lunches to take to the pool. I didn't get any pictures of it though. We also watched some football.

Next up, will be days 3 and 4. Spoiler, I got montezuma's and had a rough time the rest of the trip, but still made the most of it. Also, it was my first time getting it in 14 years, so that is saying something. Do I know what I got it from? I am pretty sure, but not 100%.

Until next time!


  1. Are your girls too old already to qualify for family boarding? You can board after the A group so you're likely to have seats together. We like Southwest because of free checked bags! That's too bad you got sick on the trip!

    1. Technically they are. We still got away with it this time, but not sure how much longer. They are supposed to be 6 and under. My girls are almost 8. I love the free checked bags though.

  2. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you were under the weather for a large part of your trip. That's no fun. We stopped flying Southwest for a few years too after the boys were too old for family boarding as it was stressful to try and at least get even just 2 seats together and split up the family. We just flew Southwest for our trip to Florida this fall and with teenagers it was perfect! They couldn't have cared less about flying alone (and funny enough we were within arms reach of each other!).

    1. I figure that is how it will be with my girls as they get older. We have another Southwest flight coming up and I hope that the girls will be able to do family boarding. But I am not holding my breath on it.

  3. I agree about flying Southwest. Now that we are all adults in our family, it is a great deal for us since we don't worry about sitting right next to each other. :)

  4. I'm glad you managed to do some fun things despite the bad weather.

  5. Ugh- sorry you got sick- that happened to me during my Senior Year Spring Break Trip in college and I still said that trip was so worth it- ha! :)

    1. It is worth it even if you are sick because you are in the sunshine and on vacation. Better than being at work or school.

  6. Looks like you guys had fun. Sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well for part of the trip.

  7. I'm so sorry you got sick during your trip. I've never heard of montezuma's, but I'm going to look it up now. What a bummer!
