Curacao 2019-4: Best of turtle

There are many dives that you can do on Curacao that will let you meet Turtles. Playa Grandi may be the most famous and crowded, but not necessarily the one that will be most memorable. Double reef in an unlikely space next to the water treatment plant just off the capital is a much more interesting dive.

Curacao 2019-3: Tiny underwater stuff

Diving the tug boat beach is a wonderful combination of aging infrastructure (the old boat that can be crossed underneath with great views of the installations) and then plentiful fish life, in particular the tiny stuff.

Curacao 2019-1: Overwater

What a beautiful little Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela! The beaches are spectacular, and so is the color (and the feel) of the water. But let’s get started slowly with a few overwater views.

CDMX by Bike

Every Sunday, Paseo de la Reforma turns into a maze of bike lanes, closed for traffic. I have seen it a couple of times while visiting but not managed to rent a bike myself. This time, I went for it!
