The Art Warehouse – San Juan Del Sur

Posted by in Food, Travel Mom

A few years ago, I wrote a piece here called, “San Juan Del Sur Sober”,where I outlined all the good stuff to do in this boozy tourist town in South Nicaragua that didn’t include booze. A lot has changed in a few years. First off, El Gato Negro, a pilar of the SJDS day community and hands down the best book store and cafe vibes in all of Central America (yes, I am going THAT far) has sadly closed, leaving a huge hole in the alterna market. Buddha’s Garden, which…read more

Travel Mama: Guatemala

Posted by in Travel Mom, Yoga on the Road

This is a quick note really to say that after a lot of emails and messages and questions, I’ve finally put together a trip for mom’s and their kids. I have done a lot of solo travel in my life, and I’ve traveled with a dog (which is glorious as well) but traveling with my daughter was a whole new world. It’s like solo travel except everyone talks to you and treats you like you are welcome. People want to help you and tell you about their kids and congratulate…read more

Have Baby, Will Travel: Holbox

Posted by in Travel Mom

One of the most challenging issues of travelling with a baby is how little of my previous knowledge is actually useful now. I have backpacked through Europe in the 90s, traveled South East Asia, lived off grid, and even WWOOF’d – you’d think I was some kind of traveling expert right? With a kid, all that shit goes out the window. The beautiful sleepy island of Holbox is a perfect example of how your old expertise can ruin your new mom life. Nestled north of the Yucatan, Holbox is the super trendy sleepy…read more

Have Baby, Will Travel: Playa Mazunte, Mexico

Posted by in Travel Mom

After a stellar trip to Lake Atitlan, we made the 12 hour journey over the boarder back home to San Cristobal with heavy hearts. It was the first time that I had so much help with Luna, and coming home to an empty house was even less exciting than it sounds. Luckily, my good friend, Sara, was in town and offered us a ride to Mazunte with her a few days after we returned. Having nothing holding us in San Cris, we gladly jumped at the opportunity to take the…read more

Posted by in Travel Mom

Our good friend MotherInTheWild has just had her second, ten years apart from the first. New marriage, new baby, new ball of wax. She shares how she’s managed to keep her head up, while navigating two with grace *** {Full Disclosure: This list is generated from a perspective (mine) that is coming from 10 years of singlemotherhood, continual attempts at blending families, my late-thirties, a miscarriage, and drenched in well-accepted mom-guilt. Maybe you have it made in the shade over there and you find me totally un-relatable; maybe you are…read more

Have Baby, Will Travel: Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

Posted by in Travel Mom

I have been traveling by myself since I was 4, yes 4! My parents lived a three hour plane ride from each other and since it was the 80s, kids were more independent then, and they just decided to put me on a plane twice a year to fly across the country and see my dad. I practically came of age in an airport. By the time I was 26, I had moved to New York alone at 18 and then did a year in University in England; traveled around…read more
