OK, this is a story you may not believe... tentacle and all.

It happened in a private cenote called Maravilla, just down the road from Puerto Morelos. My friends Noe and Joanna had just returned from a dive trip to Mahajual on the southern edge of Mexico's Caribbe...

When you are getting ready to do some research and the Universe conspires to help you, you follow the bread crumb trail...no matter where it might lead!

A few weeks ago, I submitted an application to National Geographic for a grant to do some research on Maya Mysteries....

The Law of Attraction states that, "thoughts become things." In other words, what you think about a lot tends to come to you. You manifest it. It goes from being just in your imagination to in your reality.

This is St. Jude Thaddeus. He is the patron saint of hopeless cases. Here he is in a tiny outdoor church in the mountains of rural Mexico.

 The tallest man who is wearing the blue shirt is Francisco, the herbatero. The guy with the white shirt is the smiley Maya guy. The lady in the maroon skirt is Francisco's wife and herbatero assistant, the lady in the blue shirt is somebody's sister, and the kids are...

Cenote Ik Kil is 150 feet deep, or so they say. It is one of the thousands of entrances to the vast underwater cave system that covers the Yucatan Peninsula. Its waters, though crystal clear, are dark as night because of its depth. This past week, I chose not to swim i...

Two trees always grow together here in the jungles of Mexico. Chechen and Chaca. One is toxic and the other is healing. Yesterday, I got the sap of the chechen (also known as black poisonwood) on my hand and within a few minutes I was extremely uncomfortable. My skin w...

"Teach me about the goddess Xtabay (esh-ta-bay)." 

We were riding on a taxi-bike with Jose, our Maya tour guide and valiant peddler. There were two of us riding, Maria and I, and I know Jose got his workout for the day as he transported us down jungle paths, past sacred...
