06 • Retha talks things to do on Cozumel Island
Travel blogger Retha AKA the Roaming Nanny (roamingnanny.com) joins me to talk about her week-long trip to Cozumel Island in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Cozumel is a popular cruise ship stop — but it's so much more than that! In this podcast, Retha talks about getting her PADI diving certification in Cozumel, snorkeling & diving, renting a car, visiting Mayan ruins, her favorite sunset spot... and even Cozumel's only microbrewery! • Based on this blog: roamingnanny.com/blog/best-things-to-do-in-cozumel-mexico • Connect on IG: instagram.com/travelmexicosolo • Dream To Destination FB Group: facebook.com/groups/dreamtodestination • Connect on FB: facebook.com/travelmexicosolo

05 • In Mexico, everyday is Taco Tuesday
I often tell people I had to move to Mexico because everyday is Taco Tuesday! What I never knew was just how many distinct types of tacos there are in Mexico & Mexico City. I'm a bonafide taco addict who spent about 1 year living in Mexico City, eating (well above & beyond) my fair share of tacos. This podcast will tell you everything you need to know about how to & where to eat authentic Mexican tacos while traveling in CDMX! • Based on this blog: travelmexicosolo.com/50-of-the-best-tacos-in-mexico-city-free-map • Connect on IG: instagram.com/travelmexicosolo • Dream To Destination FB Group: facebook.com/groups/dreamtodestination • Connect on FB: facebook.com/travelmexicosolo

04 • Janine's take on solo female travel safety in Mexico
Fellow Mexico travel blogger Janine (janineintheworld.com) joins me to further examine the "Is Mexico safe?" question. From her blog: This is BY FAR the most frequently asked question about Mexico in the travel spaces I frequent. The thing is, it’s not actually a very useful question... [because] the answers that typically follow “Is Mexico safe?” tend to be unhelpful at best and flat-out racist at worst. • Based on this blog: janineintheworld.com/is-mexico-safe-tips-for-solo-female-travel-in-mexico • Connect on IG: instagram.com/travelmexicosolo • Dream To Destination FB Group: facebook.com/groups/dreamtodestination • Connect on FB: facebook.com/travelmexicosolo
