Single Travel: Best Mexico Eco Tourism Vacation- Trekking Adventure Among Indigenous Species

For me, the best Mexico eco tourism vacation would be one that allows me to explore the plants and animals that are native to the area without feeling rushed. It would be good to trek across different parts of this country and get close to different habitats. 

Take Pictures of Wildlife
I am interested in guided tours that would allow me to stop and take as many pictures as I want to. This is provided by companies that offer photo safaris to hikers.

Monarch Butterflies, Bats and other Creatures
Monarch butterflies, bats, crocodiles and a host of other interesting creatures live in the tropical forests, deserts, sinkholes and caverns. When you are tired of hiking you can swim in the underground rivers in Cancun or relax in the Xel-Ha lagoon. Gray whales frequent Mexican waters. So do pelicans, seagulls, sea lions, dolphins and other marine animals.

Mexico Endangered Species
Mexico is home to a large number of endangered plant and animal species. I know that for this reason, it will be important to stick to whatever rules are laid out regarding how far humans can venture into certain habitats. There are more than 20 biosphere reserves in the nation. These are recognized by UNESCO and are designed to promote sustainable development.

Mexican National Parks
People who like visiting parks to relax or observe nature can do so freely, since there are over 40 Mexican National Parks, including Cumbres de Majalca, Bahia de Loreto and Costa Occidental de Isla Mujeres. Most of these, such as Costa Occidental de Isla Mujeres, have affordable accommodations nearby. Rooms listed on start at USD $40.

Love or Obsession: When to Leave A Relationship

He says he loves you, he is everywhere you go, even when you don’t want him to be. Is it love or obsession? She says she adores you, she is constantly calling you, in fact, she calls you every hour, even consistently calling during the time you have scheduled for sleep. Is that love, or obsession?

The line between love and obsession is sometimes crossed in our relationships before we realize it’s happening. How do we know when it’s love, or obsession that is portrayed in our relationships?  When does someone go over the boundary between genuine love and obsession?

 People who are the focus of an obsession sometimes have their love, livelihood and even their lives threatened by those who obsess about them. Obsession is destructive and the family and friends of the couple sometimes share in the devastation that accompanies this type of relationship.

Boundaries in Dating: How Healthy Choices Grow Healthy Relationships

Persons who are prone to becoming obsessed often do not know that they are not truly in love. They may focus entirely on the looks of the person who has caught their attention, often ignoring areas of incompatibility. They may begin to construct unrealistic fantasies about the person who they are interested in.

They start to exhibit a wide range of controlling behaviors. Some persons who are obsessed monitor every move their partner makes, physically or electronically.

When the other party ends the relationship, a person who is obsessed may become violent. Suicide or murder-suicide is sometimes the result of an obsession.

Persons who realize that they are obsessed and want to break an obsession with someone can help themselves by forming supportive relationships outside of the relationship. The temptation may be there to keep away from friends and family but this does not facilitate your goal of moving on from the relationship. Meeting new friends and getting involved in new activities helps.

Leaving a relationship with an obsessive person is the best thing to do. Staying in a relationship with an obsessive person is bad for your self esteem. If you are involved with an obsessive person and want to break free, it may not always be wise to let them know you are planning to leave the relationship. Getting legal help may be necessary.
