Thanks to our SPOT Satellite Messenger you can see our exact Trans-Americas Journey road trip driving route through Mexico in August 2010 where we’ve been exploring Mayan archaeological sites including Palenque, the Misol Ha and Agua Azul waterfalls, the fascinating town of San Cristobal de las Casas, the Lacondon villages of Naha and Metzabok, Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapa de Corzo, the Sumidero Canyon, flocks of parrots at Sima de las Cortorras, and much more.
Then we entered the state of Oaxaca where we explored this section of the Pacific Coast including Bahias de Huatulco, and tiny and lovely Mazunte Beach (after fleeing the sadly-dilapidated Zipolite beach). We then drove north through Puerto Escondido toward Acapulco.
See what an action packed month on the road in Mexico looks line on our road trip driving route map, below.

Great pictures! Can’t wait for the rest! Just for the record, Rosas & Chocolate was never an hacienda, it is one of the colonial “casonas” built on Montejo when the “green gold” or sisal money came rolling in. Haciendas by their very nature are originally located in the countryside, although in many cases, like the Hacienda de los Morales in the D.F, the city eventually grows up around them. I imagine that in about 20 years, Xcanatún will be in the same situation.
Hey Cristina! You are, of course, absolutely right. We have to admit to fudging the definition of “hacienda” just a bit in order to make our headline work. And I would hate to think of your lovely Hacienda Xcanatun oasis ever engulfed by the city, but I guess it could happen…
