Mexico Today: "My Mexico" video featuring Cancun Canuck

Alternate blog title: "Look Ma, I'z on the Yoo Toob!"


Way back in June when I began working with the Mexico Today project, they asked me to be a part of a series of videos promoting the destination. I spent the day with an incredible film crew at Garrafon Park Isla Mujeres and met them once again for interviews in Oaxaca. I had SUCH a great time that I pretty much forgot that I was being filmed as I kayaked and zip lined and gazed dreamily out to sea. I've been awaiting the day we could see the finished product and here it is! 





While it's always strange to hear recordings of your own voice or see yourself on video, I am really pleased with the finished product and proud to be a part of the Mexico Today adventure. I believe that Mexico is a destination for EVERYONE, tourists and travellers, families and couples and singles, adventurers and laze-arounders, history buffs and foodies. While my focus is usually on Cancun and the Riviera Maya, the diversity of the country is astounding and I am excited to have the opportunity to discover even a small portion of what the rest of the country has to offer. My visit to Oaxaca in June was amazing and I have some exciting travel plans set up for October (more on that later!) My "Mexico Bucket List" is LONG, from the Copper Canyon to Guanajuato to Campeche, Chiapas, Veracruz....ok, really I could just add every state to the list because they each offer unique experiences in nature, culture, history and gastronomy to thrill the senses! It may take me a lifetime to see it all, but I've got the time....

The video above is part of a series, the other videos are just as lovely! Check out the Mexico Today Youtube page to see more!

I also invite you to become a fan of "A Canuck in Cancun" on Facebook, I would love to have you be a part of my community, the more, the merrier!
