we are leaving Chichen Itza to drive to Rio lagartos on new years day. Would it be correct to assume that everyone will be at home and all the shops and restaurants will be closed? At what time will things start to open? Will the cenotes in and around town be open? Have I picked the worst day of the year to visit?
we are travelling to Rio Lagartos on new year's day and wondering if the Feria de los Tres Reyes will be on in Tizmin, making it worth a stop. Otherwise, we would drive straight on to rio lagartos

Has anyone travelled around Tulum and further south without booking accommodation in advance. I would like the flexibility of moving around, especially as we want to go to Calakmul. Only trouble is we're going over Christmas. Are there a lot of Casa's or b&b's that are not on the internet? Are we likely to end up homeless?

Hi, which one do you think has better nightlife? Cancun or Playa del Carmen?

What do you do with your bag while swimming at the beach.
My family of 11 (ages 1 to 59) will be stopping in Progreso in May of this year on the Carnival Elation.
We would like to spend our hours there at the best beach not too far from the port.
We would need transportation and a nice quiet place to play.
We do not need alcohol but would love good food for lunch, beach chairs, umbrellas, maybe a pool and other water activities. And I am always open to an affordable massage.
Thank you for your help.

I'm flying into Cancun Feb 28th, renting a car and driving to Progeso for a week. It's a four hour drive - are the roads between Cancun and Progreso well maintained? Secondly, I've read the Progreso beaches are nice but not good for snorkeling - are there snorkeling opportunities in the area, such as in cenotes? Do I bother to bring my snorkeling gear? Thanks!

My friend and I will be in the Yucatan for 2 weeks in March/ April.
The rough route we have so far:
Cancun - Chichen Itza - Merida - Campeche - Palenque - San Cristobal - then back towards Cancun staying at either Playa del Carmen or Isla Mujeres. (We know we will probably have to cut something out to fit if into 2 weeks but this is just a rough idea)
Can anyone suggest a good final place to stay near Cancun that has good beaches? Also if you have any advice on the rest if the itinerary feel free to comment!
Thanks in advance.
My father wants to know if the buses that run between Cancun and Merida are safe for 2 American women.
We are spending 2 weeks in Progresso just north of Merida. Has anyone rented a car through rentalcar.com? Or have you rented a car on arrival at the airport? We have always booked a car over the internet but are concerned about the 3rd party liablility which now has to be purchased from a mexican company? Any suggestions? Thanks!
