    • Constitution Day 2016 - observance on Feb. 1?

      Mexico Nov 24, 2015 at 12:57 AM

      We arrive in Cancun on Feb. 5 and I just discovered that it's Constitution Day. But the information at and Wikipedia says that it is observed on the first Monday in February regardless of which day is the actual holiday. Does that mean businesses are open as usual on Friday Feb. 5, 2016? I was planning to get a SIM card at Movistar right after we got off the plane. Thanks!

    • Good travel guide books for Mayan sites?

      Mexico Nov 9, 2015 at 3:39 PM

      We are planning a 2 week road trip to see Mayan Archaeological sites Central and Southern Mexico. Our basic plan is to fly into Oxaca and fly out of Cancun. I did some preliminary research based on this google map:

      I was looking on Amazon to buy a good guide book but most of the usual suspects (lonely planet, rogue etc) have pretty mediocre reviews. Most of the guide books seem to cater to "beach/resort" crowd. Do you guys recommend any specific guide book(s) which provide details about Mayan sites?

      I already placed an order for An Archaeological Guide to Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula by Joyce Kelly but I am also looking to buy something more recent for general road tripping and accommodation planning.

      I am planning on driving to Veracruz from Brownsville, TX in a couple of weeks. Has anyone driven it lately? Is it best to drive to Cuidad Victoria on the toll road or cut off on 180 before you get there. Also is it best to go to Tihuatlan and then over to the toll road that goes around Poza Rica versus staying on 180 into Tuxpam and picking up the toll road there? Any info on this coastal route will be helpful.

      Planning A Trip

      I am planning a trip to Veracruz probably by next year and I would like to know what would be ideal activities to get into while I am there. I will more than likely be traveling as a loner. I am young and active and LOVE to dance, listen to live bandz. I would also like a tourguide who won't mind showing around and who is a balance between outgoing and chill. I am very cultural and open-minded to the ways of the Earth.
