Welcome to Mexico!

Bienvenidos in Mexico!



The first in the Mexico series of Pack-n-Go Girls travel adventure books, Mystery of the Thief in the Night, takes girls to the beautiful country of Mexico. If you’ve read “What to Know Before You Go” in the back of the book, you already know a little about Mexico. Here are a few more interesting photos Izzy captured on her recent trip to Barra de Navidad. And scroll down for more interesting information about Mexico!

Izzy’s Tour of Mexico
  • Here we are at anchor in the Barra de Navidad lagoon. isn’t it amazing?

  • The plaza is always a busy place in every village.

  • The school kids lining up for lunch. See the shades for the playground? They remind me of our sails on the boat.

  • This is the breakfast and lunch menu for Patti’s school. There are 18 pesos to the U.S. dollar, so this can be expensive. A lot of moms bring lunch to their kids at the lunch break.

  • I love this beach restaurant, but I have to admit that we always bring bug spray because the sand gnats love it too.

  • Here’s the abarrotes where we buy our fruits and vegetables. Everything is fresh!

  • This is my favorite moment from sailing. We were anchored in Tenacatita Bay, and three dolphins played under our boat for almost an hour. Cool, isn’t it?

  • How can you beat the sunset from Patti’s family restaurant?

  • Katie Kitty enjoyed a warm spot in a coffee shop. I got some yummy hot chocolate, and Katie Kitty had a dish of milk.

  • I love walking the beach at Barra.

  • I got to go visit Patti's school one day. It was so fun!

  • I loved meeting Patti's friends.
