Travel Information

As you guys know I will be heading for the deep south (Mexico) on Saturday. My question is about electricity there. I KNOW THEY HAVE ELECTRICITY but is it the same current as here. I would like to take my battery recharger but not sure if it will be the same there. I know in some countries they have 220 current instead of 110. Any thoughts?

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

Tulum is on the agenda. We have three days of trips planned. I think we are doing an overnight in Northern Mexico too.
