Our adventure with 2 kids backpacking......
DEC 22 2007 We headed to Mexico again but this time Yury is 6 months old baby and Emma is 5 years old.
We thought going to Puebla will be great place for our 10 days adventures. We landed in Mexico city then with the help of
some people we got on the right bus to Puebla. The city is about 1 hour from Mexico city. If you are going to Puebla don't miss the Mole.
It is very traditional dish meat and coco sauce and very tasty. We ended up going to the zoo driving through the safari.
We left Puebla to Another small town. It was so tiny that we forgot its name. We moved south taking a taxi to nearby town in order to go
to OAXACA. IN OAXACA, we visited Monte Alban and Mitla, pre-Hispanic capitals of the Zapotec and Mixtec people. we visited the town of Santa Maria de Tule, where we saw the famous Arbol del Tule (Tule Tree). The Food in OAXACA is just Amazing, the food is combination of Rice, beans, chicken but in OAXACANIAN taste to it. Everyone that we met mentioned the beach. The only problem it is a rough, and seven hours long. So we decided to give it a try.
It was very rough ride and the kids didn't like it. We have to stop in order to clear the road from huge tree that was blocking the road.
After 7 hours of holding our breath we finally arrived to Puerto Escandido. Well it is worth the whole drive....We loved it the minute we checked in Family
owned hotel on the beach. We just walked in and start swimming in the hot water....At night it was great Market with so much good food such as Fish and the best things about it, it is so cheap.....we loved eating Fresh Oysters from the Ocean.....We loved the shrimp....Bader get hold of good recipe for the shrimp from one of the waiters.....We decided not to take the same route back but to fly back....It just took us 45minutes flying..............
Just to note we enjoyed good coffee and Pastry place in OAXACA.
