      My partner and I are landing in Cancun on a Sunday night 9 pm, we are thinking of getting out of Cancun and going straight to Playa Del Carmen, we are looking to party on our first night or two, looking for some live music venue perhaps, would be great but not sure about on a Sunday night or where? We are also looking for accommodation near the happening area, somewhere private with a balcony, nothing too flash, any hints? But I heard Playa Del Carmen shuts down around 10pm on a that right? Maybe then if that's true we should perhaps just stay in Cancun for a night… any hints? Thank you

      Hi, am planning to go to Mexico for desperately needed extensive dental work. Particularly implants , as I will be without teeth full upper arch. Failed bridge and dentists recommendations here, to which I agree but can't afford. Need recommendations on any safe places to visit in Mexico to accommodate this.

Would appreciate any recommendations on someone who actually went to a particular place or knows someone who has and your take on the safety issues visiting this country at this time. Thanks so much for any help in advance, sincerely appreciate.

      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).

      Best guided tours?

      Mérida Feb 3, 2015 at 3:55 AM

      I'm going to Mérida at the end of February and I really want to visit Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Celestun. We don't feel like renting a car, so I'm looking for information or reviews on some of the tour operators based in Mérida. Right now, I'm looking at Mayan Ecotours, Ecoturismo Yucatan, and TuriTrans Mérida. Does anyone have experience with any of them? Or perhaps you have another company to recommend?

    • day trip from Cancun

      Chichén-Itzá Oct 8, 2014 at 10:42 AM

      We are staying in Cancun, and would like to visit CI. How long could one spend there (obiviously it will depend on what kind of traveller you are, but what have people found is a reasonable amount of time there?)

      We are wondering if we would be able to fit in a visit to Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, Celestun Wildlife Refuge, Ek Balam, and Cenote Dzitnup, in the same day as going to CI from Cancun, or is this too ambitious? Is this part of the trip a whole day trip, in and of itself?

      We're staying in Cancun and don't have plans to spend overnight in the CI area.

      Thanks in advance!
