We decided to go back to Mexico again this winter

The cool summer in Ohio and West Virginia brought back memories of last winter’s Mexico trip. United Airlines had discontinued their direct flight from Cleveland to Cancun when they shutdown CLE as a hub. This was a deal breaker, but they decided to do direct flights to Cancun again this winter because of demand I expect.

So the trip was back on. Now where to go? We loved the trip last winter so tentatively we will try the same itinerary. Hopefully I could paddle again in the mountains of the Huasteca region near Ciudad Valles to start and end up at Xpu-ha in Quintana Roo for most of the winter.

We have completed our Mexico 2014-15 Trip Plans
