A little about us...
Welcome to our website! If it is your first time around here, we are the Kinetic Kennons and we have been living in and traveling around Mexico for over four years now! In August of 2016, we packed up our things and moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. In November of 2017, we decided to leave our comfortable, tranquil pueblo of Vallarta and set off for the enormous Mexico City!
Curiosity got the best of us and next thing we knew we were taking weekend trips to colonial cities like San Miguel de Allende, Querétaro, and Guanajuato. Soon we were living out of our suitcases and traveling Mexico full-time. From the bottom of the Copper Canyons to the top of Iztaccíhuatl, we have been everywhere! Well, that’s a lie- we have not been to EVERY state in Mexico- but we are getting close!
We view ourselves as fairly ordinary people--we both grew up in "ordinary" homes, had "ordinary" jobs in Dallas, and (unfortunately) grew an ordinary amount of student loan debt (thanks UNT!). Our hope is that after reading our stories and watching our videos, you are more inspired to live a more fulfilling life regardless of your "ordinary". We are here to share inspiration. If you work a full-time job and only get two weeks of vacation each year-you still have the power to design an adventurous life for yourself. After all, that is exactly where we started before leaving it all behind to live la vida loca!
Whether you are looking to move to Mexico or you just want to plan the perfect beach vacation, we hope this page acts as a springboard to help launch you in the right direction!
WHO ARE WE?
More about our channel...
After living in Mexico for about one year, we decided to start making Youtube videos. These videos were fun to make and a great way to show our friends and family what we are up to. Four years and 189,000 subscribers later, our little hobby has turned into a full-time dedication to sharing this country that is so often misunderstood with the world.
We have had the pleasure of creating videos in some of the most beautiful beach destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, Isla Mujeres, and Puerto Escondido and we have captured the most incredible festivals and traditions such as the Guelaguetza in Oaxaca and El Grito in Mexico City.
While this website serves to be the informational hub of our travels, (where to go, what to eat, etc.) our videos are the visual and auditory entertainment that really drives Kinetic Kennons. While we can quickly summarize information in a blog post like the best restaurants, where to stay, and transportation methods, the beauty of videos is that you can truly feel the spirit and vibrance behind the places we visit, the people we meet, and the food we eat.
We hope that you can use both resources as a way to help assist you on your future travels to Mexico!
ALWAYS CON TODO
A new way to share Mexico!
After nearly two years of creating Youtube videos in Mexico, we realized that we were not sharing the beauty of Mexico to the world in the most complete way possible. Thus the idea to create “Con Todo” was born. In addition to sharing the beauty of Mexico with you all virtually across the internet, our goal with Con Todo is to bring Mexico right into your home. We hand-pick arts, crafts, jewelry, etc. from all across this incredible, culturally rich country to share directly with you. We support local artisans who create these masterpieces and only purchase extremely limited quantities to share!
Our aim is to find the most beautiful, unique pieces of art across this country that we call home and not only share the artwork itself with you, but also the stories behind all of the treasures--including the artists themselves! With your help, we can shine the spotlight on hundreds of incredibly talented artists all throughout Mexico all the while bringing Mexican treasures straight into your home.
If nothing else, we hope that “Con Todo” inspires people to live their best life and to always, always, ALWAYS live con todo!
