    • Condo / Appartment

      Playa del Carmen Jul 1, 2015 at 7:47 AM

      Hi,
      We are planning our first vacation to Playa del Carmen around December 13th. We are planning a 1 month trip with our 2 sons (12 and 14 years old), we are very excited!

      I know that this is the worst possible time of the year to travel, but with school and everything, this is the only time possible for us. As you can imagine, budget is a big issue. We are looking for a condo/appartment is a safe area, idealy gated but not a muste, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and if possible close to 5th avenue and the beach to avoid taxi and bus travelling. To stick to our budget, we need to stay below 1200$ for a month

      Would anyone have suggestions?? Thanks in advance

      Time to spend at Mayan sights?

      Chichén-Itzá Jul 7, 2015 at 12:26 PM

      I'm starting to plan my Mexico-trip and its difficult for me to estimate the time, which is needed for the mayan sights, particularly Chitzen Itza, Uxmal, Palenque and Tulum... How many hours an average visit will take?

      I know it is a tricky question, because every visitor has its own pace, but usually I tend to make sights quicker than the average backpacker... For instance for me two (full) days were sufficient at Angkor Wat or Petra (just to give you a comparison).

      Myself and friends are heading over to the states in a few days and have just found out on arrival we need an exiting pass, we allready had one booked but that was from LA to La Paz, Mexico.. Now i have just been informed that the ticket from LA to MEX does not prove you are leaving... We will be leaving USA within the 90 days but were looking to catch a bus through mexico and down to central america.. so i guess the question is how can i go about booking a flight or bus out of mexico into central america in advance so the customs security let us enter the country. Also if anyone knows any cheap bus companys that can accomodate for this?

      name of huichol village?

      Estado de Nayarit Dec 3, 2011 at 3:26 PM

      Several years ago, I took about a 1 to 2 hour taxi ride out of San Blas (an hour north of Puerto Vallarta), to a small Huichol village, that was on a round island, and was presumably patterned after Tenochtitlan. The streets were laid out in a circular pattern. It was accessible only by boat. I assumed it was generally north of San Blas, but I can't locate it now.

      Any suggestions?

      homestay with a Mexican family?

      Rincon de Guayabitos May 11, 2011 at 6:25 PM

      Greetings from Alaska! I have two daughters, ages 14 and 11, who have been in a Spanish Immersion program since kindergarten and speak Spanish fluently. I’m hoping/planning to travel with them for a month to Mexico this summer so they can speak Spanish language outside of a classroom and immerse themselves in a foreign culture. One option I’m considering is flying to Puerto Vallarta and then traveling north to a much smaller, much less touristy town along the coast. A friend recommended Guayabitos as a possibility, although I understand there are many small towns along the coast there that could fit our interests.

      I’m hoping that we might be able to live(eat, sleep, etc.) very inexpensively with a non-English speaking Mexican family for the month, ideally one that has similar-aged girls so that my daughters would have friends to hang out with. We did the same in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua about four years ago. Can you give me any leads/suggestions on how I might be able to make contact with a local family that might be willing to house and share breakfasts and dinners with the three of us for a month?

      Another alternative I'm considering is doing volunteer work there at a group home or orphanage with lots of kid. The key for me is that the girls have something fun and interesting to do, all the while speaking Spanish and experiencing another culture. I’m unemployed and travelling on a very very low budget, so low cost is a very important consideration.

      Thanks in advance for any ideas and information you may have.

    • Nuevo Vallarta Paradise Village Safety

      Estado de Nayarit Apr 27, 2011 at 8:34 AM

      I am planning a trip to Paradise Village in September. I believe this resort is safe but one has to get there from the airport and then travel outside the gates for groceries, etc. I read that one needs to be sure the taxi you are riding in is legit. I recently saw the photos of the dead (skinned men)in Tepic (an hour from NV) and was mortified. I know the killings were drug related but the violence seems to be extraordinarily brutal and may, in the future, know no boundaries. Also, I am buying a condo on El Tigre Golf Course (Sensara) and I am concerned about the long term safety. In addition I believe the developer is out of money. Does anyone know the status? I am considering cancelling my contract with them and travel to Nuevo Vallarta Paradise Village using my points for all future travel.

      I have some concerns of getting to Sayulita from the Puerto Vallarta airport.
      This is my first trip to Sayulita and I understand the only way to get there
      from the airport in PV is by taxi. My flight arrives around 8:30 pm. Someone
      said you should not take a taxi from the immediate airport area, but need to
      cross a road to another (cheaper?) taxi stand. How safe is this and how much
      will it cost me? Have there been any problems recently with these cabs?
      Thanks for your help.

      Name of beach???

      Punta de Mita Sep 20, 2008 at 3:35 PM

      Hola,

      I am trying to remember the name of a beautiful wide sandy beach maybe 30 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. I think it is the first beach you come to on the main road after you leave Manzanilla heading toward Punta Mita. It is very near the road and there is a a nice outlook from the road overlooking the beach. There is a small free parking area with some concession stands on the beach. It is very common with local families and crowded on the weekends, the sunset is beautiful. According to a map I found it is north of Las Cargadas. Attached are links to a Nayarit map with an arrow pointing to the beach and another with an actual picture from the beach.

      I seem to remember but I'm not positive, maybe confusing it with somewhere else, but I think there may be an archway entering into the parking area and the name is on the arch. But I'm not sure.

      Anyone know the name?

      Thanks!

      Hello.
      My boyfriend and I are looking to come some time in the early 1/2 of December for about 5 nights.
      Here is what would be ideal; and of course I know a perfect fit is hard to find, or may already be booked.

      Privacy, romantic, pool, ocean view, walk to beach and town, kitchen (barbque would be nice too, as would a jaccuzi, but I'll try not to go overboard ).
      This visit would be during the high season and we do not want to spend more than200/night;150 would be ideal.

      I look forward to any help and suggestions anyone can provide.
      So far my favorites are Casa Angel, which is almost booked, and Casa Sonrisa (the top palapa penthouse portion). So if anyone wants to comment on those I would appreciate that input.
