IF YOU’RE NOT FROM MEXICO, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Huasteca. Americans tend to stick with the tried and true vacation spots they’ve heard of such as Cancun and Cabo when traveling to Mexico. More intrepid travelers might visit Oaxaca, Mexico City and San Miguel Allende. However, one of the most beautiful spots in the entire country is only a two-and-a-half hour drive from Tampico or a 12-hour drive from Houston. This secret oasis remains almost unknown to American tourism. It is called Huasteca, San Luis Potosí.
Thanks for sharing a REAL day of van life in Mexico with us!
A video you may enjoy if you liked today's vlog:
DAILY VAN LIFE ROUTINE IN MEXICO
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoRT1...
Today's van life vlog begins in Bernal Queretaro where the three of us (couple + dog) hike up one of the world's largest monoliths to get a jump start on the day. Yes, I know what you're thinking...Rojo has become quite the adventure dog already! Then we stock up on a few things (tortillas and avocados.. you know the important stuff) and head to our first stop in San Luis Potosi: Puente De Dios. Here we have a quick swim to cool off from this extreme Mexican heat. We then make our way to Xilita to visit Sir Edward James' surrealist garden and realize that Semana Santa makes for a very challenging week of exploring.
Las Pozas is English artist Edward James’ vision of the Garden of Eden, and it’s trippy AF. The 80-acre, surreal “park” is built in thick jungle and is teeming with waterfalls, pools, and unusual concrete sculptures. It feels like a movie set -- or a long-lost abandoned civilization for fairies, and mythical creatures. James began building here in 1949 and over the course of 35 years, scores of these surreal structure were created like stairs that lead to nowhere and concrete flowers next to real ones.

We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
The Traveling Van Life in Mexico; hot, sticky, but oh so much fun!

    Absolutely love your videos & this is another fabulous one! Thank you so much for your hard work & all that you share with us, amazing! Love seeing Rojo & while it'll be hard for you, it's great that you have a permanent home & it's the right thing to do for him. Ordered your Chaiwala Chai & am enjoying it a lot, it's so yummy! We live in southern Indiana, along the Ohio River & we're between Louisville, KY & Cincinnati, OH. At some point, we'll definitely go to Nashville, TN for some ice cream at KOKO's & will check out Graze as well. IF YOU'RE EVER on I65 & going through Louisville, KY, there's a great vegan restaurant, "V-Grits" which we think you'd really enjoy. It's open Tues.-Sat. 11-9; Sun. for brunch only 10-3, closed on Mon. Safe Travels!

    I have been to Ensenada several times back in the 90s for work. Mexico is a beautiful country, but it is very dangerous, and only getting worse. The drug wars and cartels are no joke. I would like to take my family on a road trip there, but there is no way I would just because of all the violence, even against tourists.

    I had the joy of going there 17-18 years ago and staying at the little house there that cantilevers over the valley. No one knew about this place back then and we had it all to ourselves, even set off fireworks on the tallest concrete plateau. Sir Edward James was quite an amazing man. Would love to have seen it with the bird sanctuary up and running. Laz Pozas is not the best kept secret any longer (it's even in the Atals Obscura now) but glad you got to see it!

    GREAT video!.....ive been watching a lot, with plans to move to mex in the coming year.....don't take this wrong....i mean no personal offense, but it has been slowly dawning on me that the last 7-8yrs have seen a HUGE uptick in people, lots of couples like yourselves, making mexican travel videos, and, when done as part of an income stream, the pressure is on to make more and more of them, and "discover" more and more "special" places.....you can almost time it out now, sometimes in only months, how many of those places begin to rapidly become LESS special as the viewers roll in to visit and/or live.... again, not trying to be a jerk, but there is a clear connection, particularly with the ruination rate of coastal towns both east and west.....its bittersweet.....i have personally benefitted from the video boom, but, especially since im leaving a tourist town in the US that has become crazy expensive and crowded, i can feel the sadness of the shadow side of the process......be well, you both.....

Love your video's, we have practically seen them all. I am half way through converting my VW Crafter (Sprinter van) and we too, will be experiencing the VanLife and plan to visit Europe, stay safe guys

    Im from mexico but I never been in those places you visited in this video, it looks amazing and made me miss mexico more since Im living in california for almost 20 years. Cant complain, is pretty fun here too. glad you guys had a nice trip and unforgetable experience there. Never make comments on videos, but Im been following vanlife for a couple years and lately been follow your channel. You guys are pretty cool and cute couple. Love your music background, video editing and stories you share with the people. Thanks for making this kind of videos for the groupies. But hearing you guys speaking spanish bought my soul to subscribe to your channel, anyways I tough I did before so I did it today. Hope you guys can keep making videos because I enjoyed any single one I watched.

    Hello, I just wanted to write and say how much I'm loving your vlogs (I'm a fairly new sub). I'm from B.C. and I don't want to be a downer, but I really wish that the Alberta government would keep their silent ads for the Trans-Mountain Pipeline away from your channel. I'm sure you appreciate just how damaging this enterprise would be not only to the First Nations' lands, but also the devastation to the wildlife. I'm sorry to bring it up, but I hate having that speechless brainwashing going on when I'm enjoying your vlogs! xox

    My husband directed a music video for Nicole Scherzinger there in his mid-twenties, maybe ten years ago?

    Hi Eamon and Bec! I’ve been binge watching your videos and I have to say, they’re truly well made. Your guys’ van lifestyle has inspired me to think about buying a van as well, and travelling after I graduate high school next year. I just curious though, how do you both have the confidence to go out and talk to strangers, make new friends, etc?? I feel like that would be the one thing I’d struggle with and want to focus on. Thank you!!
