Oaxaca, Mexico


To enter Mexico (For GCC Nationals), you could enter with a valid US Visa, or establish a new Mexican visa.

How to Get There?

My trip was a bit LONG; I connected via Frankfurt, Houston, Mexico City and finally to Oaxaca. Airport in Oaxaca is called Xoxocatlan Airport (OAX). There’s a direct flight from Houston to Oaxaca.

Length of my Stay

I stayed in Oaxaca for three nights, mainly because I was invited to attend a wedding there, so a full day was gone in the wedding, and I have two days to explore – two days were good enough to cover many things. Some sights were a bit further, so just make sure you plan your trip ahead of time, and see the time between the places you’d like to visit/see.

Wadi Adventure in Al Ain مغامرات الوادي في العين

During one of my weekend trips to Dubai, I wanted to do something different than the usual. A friend of mine had previously recommended that I check out this adventure park and that was I thought of doing for a day.

We had rented a car in Dubai, and drove to Al Ain. The total drive was around 1 hour 40 minutes to Wadi Adventure.

One of the offered activities: AirPark


I enjoyed the place but definitely NOT in July. They need to work ALOT of making it summer friendly because it was too hot to enjoy anything except the rafting experience.

الجو كان وايد جار فا أنصح زيارتها لمن يكون الجو براد عالاقل لأن الأحبال تكون جاره وماكو أي تجهيزات خاصه للجو الحار
