Vaera Journeys



Winter 2020 Puerto Escondido

The Mexican state of Oaxaca has been on the map for quite some time now, known for its vibrant culinary scene, enigmatic culture, and brilliant colors. But the state has some of Mexico’s best and most beautiful beaches and coastline, as well - many of which are still relatively undiscovered. Surfers have been chasing an endless summer along Puerto Escondido for years, but when it comes to mass tourism ‘Puerto’ (as the locals call it), is still far off the mega maps.

See what you missed...

Playa del Carmen is arguably the more sophisticated older sibling to Cancun. This one-time fishing village about an hour south of Cancun, along the coast of the Caribbean Sea, is now one of the hottest destinations in Mexico, popular with a young and sexy, jet-setting crowd.

The beauty of Puerto Vallarta is that it offers the best of both worlds: beautiful beaches, but also an authentic, Mexican flair, which is shown off to the fullest extent in the city's Centro and Zona Romantica neighborhoods.


Take a look back at our inaugural retreat, held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

Andrea Valeria

Meet Andrea Valeria. Andrea was one of the very first attendees to come on a Vaera Journey. We were captured by her absolute passion for life, thirst for travel, and unstoppable energy to create and drive her Digital Nomad lifestyle. When we were thinking of who the perfect speaker for a trip to Cuba would be, only one name came to mind.

A former TV news reporter, Andrea took a risk and transitioned her side hustle into her dream job of full-time travel vlogging (video blogging) an living as a digital nomad.
