Our days of cross-country road trips on a chicken bus a behind us. Not because we don’t think our girls could handle it, I’m sure they would love some of it, but more so because we are wanting to keep travelling FUN, for the entire family.
When we landed in Cancun we found ourselves in a bit of a predicament. All four of us were tired, emotionally drained from leaving our island friends in St Thomas, and tired from having packed up our entire lives on a sailboat into 4 bins, 2 duffle bags, 4 carry-ons, and 1 large kiteboarding bag.
We were in Cancun but our trip wasn’t over, we still had 2 hours of commuting to do to get to our destination of El Cuyo.
Before the trip started we figured we would take the bus, or a private taxi van to get there. But once we had landed and collected all of our luggage, we realized that maybe the monetary savings of taking public transportation were not worth the headaches of cramming all of our luggage on to a bus, having multiple transfers to make, and two kids that just wanted to BE THERE already.
