I’m Jennifer, a Canadian mommy living in Cancun, Mexico with my Mexican husband Manuel and spunky Canexican toddler daughter Isla…and if you haven’t guessed already “Canexican” is my made-up word as our daughter navigates this world as a perfect blend of being Mexican & Canadian learning both English & Spanish. Manuel & I run our own destination wedding photography business together which has allowed us to have a wonderfully flexible & fun work to life balance and has given us incredible inside knowledge to the many amazing resorts & things to do here in Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Something many don’t know about me is that I have always worked in communication arts and studied Journalism in college. I have worked on community newspapers as a writer/photographer & in television as a host/reporter/producer/camera operator for various platforms such as daily news and magazine shows. I’m incredibly excited to get writing again by sharing travel tips, family friendly ideas on what to do here in Cancun/Mayan Riviera through our own personal adventures with a toddler, the lowdown on all-inclusive resorts in the area, how we are working on raising a fully bilingual citizen of the world & what life is really like here in Cancun, Mexico.
Our little Isla loves adventures of all kinds both near & far by plane, train, car, boat, golf cart rides around islands, hiking across beach rocks…you name it! We soak up every ounce of awesomeness Cancun & the Riviera Maya has to offer and love sharing the places we visit and the things we see & do. The Yucatan Peninsula is such a gorgeous area of Mexico and we are proud to call it home! We do still divide as much time as possible between Mexico & Canada and we can’t think of two better countries for our little travel baby to have roots in!
