Holidays at Disneyland

Posted by: | 4 Comments

If I had to choose only one time of the year to visit the Disneyland Resorts, it would be during the Holidays. Both of the parks (Disneyland and California Adventure), the hotels and even Downtown Disney just exude even more magic and completely embody the merry spirit of the holidays. Not only are the streets, the building facades and the characters trimmed with the best holiday decor and costumes, but also many of our favorite rides and shows–like “It’s aRead More ...

Every year during the Autum season, Mexico is host to one of the most impressive and mysterious wonders our natural world has to offer: the southern migration of millions of Monach butterflies (mariposas Monarcas) from Canada to the central regions of Mexico.

tulum mexico best beaches in the world

I love being able to say I have so many memories of the best getaways in Tulum, Mexico, a gorgeous-beyond-words beach town which is now being considered one of the world’s 50 best beaches, according to CNNGO.com. It’s great to see Tulum being showcased to the world, but I also get a little bit zealous of keeping it a bit of a secret because, in a way, you want it to keep being quiet, almost desolate and a an “insider’s”Read More ...

I grew up in Canada and I always enjoyed celebrating Halloween. I have fond memories of dressing up in costumes, carving pumpkins, and trick-or-treating. When I chose Mexico as my country over a decade ago, my associations with this time of year underwent a radical shift. I fell in love with Day of the Dead, and it’s a tradition I’ve embraced wholeheartedly, and I enjoy sharing it with my children very much. Halloween is a fun holiday, but Day ofRead More ...
