Coba, Mexico

Climbing to the top of Coba’s pyramid, which is the highest Mayan pyramid of the Yucatan Peninsula. It gives a majestic view of the Mexican jungle surroundings.

It’s Friday morning when we hop on one of the ADO buses in Tulum to head for Coba. The night before we had already bought our round-way tickets to make sure we have seats. The ancient Maya ruins of Coba lay in the middle of the Mexican jungle yet surrounded by lakes, about an hour away from Tulum.

Hotel review Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp

corcovado_adventures_tent_camp

In the middle of nowhere in Costa Rica you can find the Corcovado Adventure Tent Camp. Well, maybe not exactly in the middle of nowhere, but at least it’s quite remote. Right beside the Corcovado National Park at the beach, which meets the jungle directly, you can spend the night in a high quality tent. You won’t have to put up your own tent, no, everything will be already set for you to use right away. The idea of camping at the beach near the jungle sounds really amazing and so I decided to visit the tent camp for two adventurous nights.

Let’s do it like they do on the Discovery channel

panatanal_discovery_brazil_renateontheboat

Going on a safari to the Pantanal in Brazil might be something you have never considered before since the place is not very well known to us foreigners. Instead of heading to the Amazon where you would normally think of going to I decided to discover the Pantanal which is actually known for its easy-to-spot wildlife due to the open surroundings this swamp has. To make it more obvious why: there are no tremendous amounts of huge trees blocking your view. On a three-day trip I succeeded on seeing a variety of wild animals and my dream of seeing one kind of animal in particular came true. Let me tell you about my visit and you will see why this place is worth your time, money, many photos and which wild animal I so desperately wanted to see!

Ariane picks us up in Down Town Bariloche, where 3 other tourists and I join her for a short pick-up ride to her home. There she has her horses waiting for us to be picked. I get to share the backseat during the 15 minutes ride with her three lovely dogs. She has a Greyhound, a Labrador and a puppy dachshund. Together with the dogs, we’re going for a super fun horse riding tour in Bariloche today!
