Although it is also formed by Belize and part of Guatemala, the majority belongs to Mexico and is the area where we will focus mainly. Its charms are world-renowned, and we do not mean that north of here was where the meteorite that killed the dinosaurs fell, which also indeed happenned: Continue reading “Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico)”

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION IN KYUSHU: WHEN TO GO, DANGERS AND ANNOYANCES, TRANSPORT

ESPAÑOL

WHEN TO GO AND INCONVENIENCES

Kyushu very deserves a section on “when to go”, or rather, on “when not to go”.

AOSHIMA ISLAND (青島)

ESPAÑOL

  • I was in Aoshima half day in April 2013.

Unknown place is Miyazaki Prefecture. Most tourists do not even know where it is, and its only place that is gradually becoming famous internationally, the incomparable Takachiho Gorge, Continue reading “AOSHIMA ISLAND (青島)”
