From Mexico City to Sayulita, the best Mexican food I had was in Puebla. Why? Because Puebla is awesome!  I don’t know what it is with this town, but it’s actually a great place if you love architecture and food. (I happen to love both!) We tasted a lot of different dishes, things that we wouldn’t find anywhere else. And by anywhere else, I mean that most of it is only found in Puebla. I’m sad that I can’t even find a cemita in Sayulita. That thing was just so delicious! Let me now introduce you to this new world …

After being here for a bit longer, our smoothie recipe changed a bit.  While our first one was a bit “Canadian” still, this version is much more Costa Rican! Fruits are way more exotic and it changes depending on what is ripe and available at the moment. Here’s one of our favorite! So here are our main ingredients! 1 coconut (we keep that, it’s a must. The water is just delicious is a smoothie!) 1 box of strawberries (we do love our strawberries. They stayed from the first recipe.) 1 fresh mango (no way we can forget our mango!!! It’s …
