      Playa del Carmen May 21, 2015 at 12:52 PM

      Help, I have been researching all inclusive resorts all day in Playa Del Carmen and I am still not sure where to stay. My husband and I are going in October. We want to be around other people and have fun, but want alone time too. We would like to stay where it is tropical and has a Caribbean flavor. We are on a budget but could probably splurge some to stay in a nice resort. We are in our early 50's so were not really into kids. We would like to go into town and if its within walking distance that would be nice, but not a requirement. My husband likes to dive and I like to snorkel. Any suggestions?

    • Walking from International Bridge to Bus station in Nuevo Laredo?

      Nuevo Laredo Sep 15, 2014 at 4:57 AM

      Hi all,

      I was wondering what the current state of affairs is in N.L.? I will be entering Mexico in the beginning of October and will be taking a bus from N.L. to Guadalajara, and will be in N.L. on a Monday in the late morning and early afternoon. I will be wearing a large backpack and have decent Spanish, not fluent but nicely conversational. If the city is fairly safe at this current time I think it would be fun to walk from the border to Nueva Central de Autobuses located here:

      google.com/maps/place/Nueva+...

      I'm white as they come but am 6 feet tall and muscular, if that makes any difference.

      Is it safe enough to walk at the time I will be in the city? The only post I've seen talking about this is from 2008 and I think it's for a different bus station maybe. Will also be stopping for lunch along the way, probably at a local Taqueria.

      Looking forward to your replies. Thanks!

I have been in Mexico for two months and now need to get home.

    • Best way to get from Matamoros to Brownsville late at night

      Matamoros Nov 10, 2013 at 12:05 PM

      I retired to Veracruz & have crossed at Matamoros/Brownsville numerous times but always by car. My problem/question is I am taking a direct bus from Veracruz but they only have one a day & it leaves Veracruz at 6:40 a.m. and arrives in Matamoros at 11:30 p.m. Hate to get a hotel that late & could reserve my extended stay hotel to include day/night I arrive in Matamoros as rate for the week figures out to less than $24 @ day. So even if I got to the hotel at 2:00 a.m. it would be better than paying $40 or more in Matamoros, plus I would still face the same problem the next day getting to my hotel. Do taxi's from Matamoros go into Brownsville? I saw where the approx amount from the Matamoros airport to Brownsville is $35 and the distance from Matamoros bus station would be less. Or would my best bet be to take a taxi to the border & walk across & try & get a Brownsville taxi to my hotel. I am 72 & would rather not walk any further than needed. LOL. PAULETTEJACK@AOL.COM
