    • Geli Dolls /Munecas Geli

      Mexico City Apr 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM

      I currently live in NY, but was looking for someone who is traveling to Mexico City.

      My sister in law bought me a beautiful doll last year when she was on vacation (they are called Munecas Geli) and they only sell them in Mexico City. They are 100% vinyl and have long realistic eyelashes. From what i have researched online, they are sold in the stores Sanborn & Liverpool (I'm not sure if she got them there as well). Anyways, my niece's birthday is coming up, and I would love to get her a Geli doll. The problem I am having is that shipping takes too long from Mexico (about a month). I was wondering if anyone out there is willing to help me by bringing one back to the US (I'll pay for shipping from your state to mine). Does anyone have a clue about these dolls? Or is anyone out there who is traveling now or soon willing to help me? Please email me at viviana.tello@aol.com
      Thanks!

    • Travel from McAllen, TX to Mexico City

      Mexico Apr 14, 2014 at 8:27 AM

      Planning summer travel to Mexico City from McAllen via Monterrey-Saltillo-Matehuala-San Luis Potosi-Querétero, etc., I've driven McAllen-Monterrey plenty, but haven't Monterrey-Querétaro, in a few years. Any info on those who have would be greatly appreciated. General "safety" (I'm not one of those super "paranoid" to travel to Mexico, just take my precautions as I do when I travel anywhere), road quality, clean rest/gas stops, etc. Many thanks!

      Cheap place to stay on South end of beach

      Tulum Apr 8, 2014 at 12:31 PM

      Does anyone know of good place to stay on South end of beach close to Sian Ka'an reserve? We stayed at Rancho San Eric last year and loved it but it is $210/nt. we really just need privacy and a place to sleep. Pretty easy going. Thought about staying with "naked beach guy" on the reserve but I think that's a little much for me.
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

      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.

      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!

      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.
