    • Late crossing to Holbox

      Isla Holbox Feb 14, 2015 at 10:17 AM

      Hi there - could anyone let me know if it will be possible to make a late crossing to Holbox.
      Our flight arrives into Cancun at 19:00, so we expect to arrive into Chiquila at about 23:00, I've read on a few forums that you can pay a local fisherman to take you across. Is this safe and how readily available will they be? We are travelling mid November. I know people will say stay the night in Cancun and make the trip the next day, but we are very keen just to get to the island as our time there will be short and we don't want to waste another day travelling.

      any help would be appreciated.

      thanks

    • Driving/Renting a Car in the Yucatan at Night

      Estado de Quintana Roo Feb 17, 2015 at 9:34 AM

      Is it safe to drive around the Yucatan (Cancun to Valladolid, to Tulum, to Akumal, and back) at night? Our flights get in very late at night (around midnight) and leave very early in the morning (around 7am). We'd love to avoid having to stay in a hotel at the airport, but don't know if that's feasible as I've heard the roads are not very well lit and thus signs would be hard to follow--and we've never driven there before. We would plan on renting a car.

      Speaking of which--does anyone have any good recommendations for the best/cheapest company to rent a car from at the Cancun airport? I've read that prices that American car rental companies quote online are only that cheap b/c they don't include the required insurance that you have to purchase. Any car rental advice would be great. Thanks!

    • Renting a car for a week?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 4, 2015 at 11:15 AM

      Hi, my family and I are planning to travel to Cozumel for a week long trip. We are looking into transportation options for our stay.

      I understand there are plenty of taxis. However, we plan to make a trip around the Island of Cozumel visiting various sites including sites that are on the other side of the island which requires at least an hour commute or more.

      Many of the tours you can book cost over $100US and we think that renting a car could be a better option for us and save us money. Renting a car would allow us to travel on our own time and pay on our own terms rather then spending hideous amounts just to drive somewhere to get a tour.

      We don't plan to use the car to travel to Chichen Itza or Tulum. We will take tours to those to locations off the island.

      What we would like to know if renting a car is a good idea or not. We have heard it is super dangerous to drive in Cozumel because drivers there show no mercy. We are very nervous about getting into an accident.

      We also have questions regarding car insurance coverage in Mexico since all US policies do not cover out of the country vehicles.

      Please, we need a variety of advice and pros/cons of why or why not.

      We have already visited numerous sites as to why and why not but we are still at a stand still as to whether to depend on a taxi for everything we want to do or make it a do-it-yourself trip on the island.

      For other details that might help to answer our plea for advice, there are 4 of us which taxis may or may not charge per person and the costs will add up.

      Please, any advice from the pros and worldwide travelers!

    • Does Tulum get a lot of Spring Break traffic during early March?

      Tulum Jan 29, 2015 at 11:44 AM

      We would love to visit Tulum, and unfortunately will be traveling during Spring Break in the U.S. (second week of March). Knowing that nearby Cancun is a crazy popular Spring Break destination, we'd really like to know before booking whether or not Tulum is still relatively free of the Spring Break madness, or if there will inevitably be tons of drunk college kids everywhere in the Riviera Maya during the second week of March? We understand Tulum is already a popular tourist destination, but we can deal with the normal tourist traffic, but would really prefer to avoid the Spring Break crowd. Any wisdom?

      planning time to visit colonial cities around Guanajuato

      by oslocairo Online Now Aug 24, 2010 at 10:17 AM

      Hi!

      I am planning a trip where I will stay in a hostel in Guanajuato and will have 9 days of visiting time. Since I am making Guanajuato my home base, I would like to visit other cities near by as day trips.

      I know nothing about these places, but realize, at least that some are smaller than others and of course,and perhaps several could be visited in one day, while others would take several days.

      Nonetheless, I am on a limited budget and so must return to Guanajuato to sleep. Also, I do not have a car, so would likely take a bus.

      With that in mind, What are your recommendations? My thought was the following: Guadalajara ( I know, more than one day, but possibly city center highlights?), Queretaro, Morelia/ Patzuaro, Zacatecas. San Luis Potosi, Aquaclaientes,San Miguel de Allende. I have read that Dolores Hidalgo is very important historically, but architecturally, not of that much interest, but I am not sure.

      I assume I will spend 3 days or so seeing Guanajuato as well and can, of course see it in small chunks of time each day as well. I have a lot of energy and don't mind long days, but am I just crazy to try to see all of this in my short time?

      I really appreciate your help.

      Thank you for any suggestions.
