    • Marinas in Cancún - Hitch a Boat

      Mexico Jan 9, 2015 at 4:28 PM

      Hello!

      I'm looking to hitch a boat (willing to work/pay) from Cancún to Cuba (La Habana I suppose). I'm planning to go to the marinas here in Cancún, leave an ad and talk to as many people as I can, and look for boats who need a crew.

      Do you know which are the marinas in Cancún where I would have the most chances to get a ride?

      Thank you!

    • New Travel Warning from US State Dept. I would love your feedback on Mexico travel from experience

      Mexico Jan 4, 2015 at 3:58 PM

      I just read the new travel warning that was released Dec. 24, 2014 on Mexico travel.

      Here is the link to read the warning: travel.state.gov/content/pas... . They include La Paz in the warning areas.

      I would love to visit Acapulco, Los Cabos, and La Paz. I am a filmmaker, and would like to consider one or more of these cities/areas for a future production. I would love to hear your experiences if you traveled to either one or more of these places in the past year or few years.

      Now all of us can say that the US has very dangerous places too, especially in large cities, but we still have to take travel warnings seriously and be realistic about the safety of any location included in travel warnings.

      What has been your experience traveling and vacationing in the cities mentioned above, good tips for traveling in these cities, if you feel based on your experience that the caution we are advised to take is over-hyped or too alarmist, and if you feel that there are safer alternatives in Mexico.

      Thank you for your feedback!

      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.

      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?

      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.
