About The Moka Diaries


Welcome to The Moka Diaries

We met in 2014, started saving for our trip almost immediately, and by October 2016 were on a plane to Mexico ready to conquer Latin America. 

In the last 5 months we’ve toured skyscrapers in Chicago, become connoisseurs of all things ‘taco’ in Mexico, drunk Cuba clean out of rum, played Robinson Crusoe in Belize, scaled volcanoes in Guatemala, surfed our hearts out in El Salvador and had a hasty introduction to the hotel trade in Nicaragua.  

We want to make travelling a lifestyle, rather than just a trip. 

This blog is dedicated to our experiences as a couple on the road, on a budget and on a mission to take our passion for travel and food to the next level – hopefully by opening our own restaurant somewhere along the way! 


Follow us here for articles on our destinations, ideas and tips that come to us for travelling on a budget, things we love, things we hate, and other musings from Latin America! 

We also have Instagram and Facebook – keep in touch!
