Sam's Journey to Mexico

Current Location

Chetumal Quintana Roo

Hi! My name is Sam, and I am spending nine months in Chetumal, Mexico teaching English at a local university called the UQROO. I am excited to share my experiences and travels with all of you!


Hola (Hello)! I am in Huatulco, Oaxaca, where I am spending the week with the 53 other Fulbright ETAs for our midterm reunion. We are discussing our unique experiences with each other and exploring!


Integrating yourself into a brand new community is extremely difficult, and forces you to get outside of your comfort zone. After making a few new friends, it gets a lot easier!

Field Notes

My favorite form of transportation throughout Mexico is the combi. Fortunately for me, they are also the cheapest way to get around and typically travel on the most direct routes.
