      Things to do in Cancun with a Toddler

      Cancún Mar 10, 2015 at 1:49 PM

      I saw a previous posting about "excursions with a baby" but I am hoping Cancun experts will be able to weigh in on some activities we are considering with our toddler. We are going to Cancun for 5 days (before heading to Tulum for a wedding). Some things we have thought about doing with our son who will be 20 months are:

      - Isla Mujeres Day Trip, Underwater Museum and Tortugranja
      - Garrafon Natural Reef Park
      - Xcaret
      - Hummer Jungle Tour
      - Marine Turtle Observation
      - Aktun Chen, Akumal
      - Wet n Wild
      - Cancun Interactive Museum
      - Crococun Zoo

      I am wondering if any of these are "tourist traps" worth avoiding, and if something is a must. We plan to do one activity a day as our child is very active and likes to be outdoors doing something.

      Thanks for any insight.

    • Private Excursions vs. Group Excursions to the Mayan Ruins

      Cancún Mar 6, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      Hi, I am going to Cancun soon and I was wondering what kind of tour company to use and looking for some suggestions of trustworthy tours to the Mayan Ruins (Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itza). I see that there are small private minibus tours for what looks to be a similar price as the big group bus tours. I would prefer that way because of the flexibility. My husband and I have been to Cancun 2 times before but our kids haven't and we want them to have a more authentic experience. I speak fluent Spanish if that helps. BTW, I don't want to deal with renting a car.

    • Family of 6 moving to Mexico City- Need advise!

      Mexico City Mar 1, 2015 at 12:24 PM

      Hi all, we recently found out my there is a high likelihood we will be moving to Mexico city for a US Gov job at the Embassy. Though we are extremely excited for the adventure we are also a family of 6 with 4 school age children and I want to gather as much information as possible. We would be living there for 2-5 years. I have been told that many US Embassy employees live in Polanco but that it is a very "plastic" place. Condessa I hear is very nice as well. I want to totally be a part of the city and culture, my husband is Mexican and I am Peruvian/Spanish so it will not be a culture shock to us but I want to make it as easy a transition as possible for our children. I also have been told the children of US embassy employees go to private schools that are very demanding. We have been given a housing allowance up to $3500/usd a month, what type of home will that afford us? And how about vacation spots close by? We like to vacation a lot and would want to take advantage of being so close to Cancun and Acapulco. Any insight as to what to expect for a US family living in Mexico City (specifically US Gov employee) would be so helpful! Thanks in advance!

      Loved Mérida, where to next?

      Mexico Mar 5, 2015 at 2:48 PM

      I just got back from spending an absolutely amazing week in Mérida, and even though I've only been back home for a few days, I'm already thinking about going back to Mexico to see more of the country. So what would be your suggestions for great places to visit in Mexico? I'd rather avoid Mexico City and places filled with all-inclusive resorts such as Playa del Carmen. I hear Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende are nice to visit? I'm looking for safe destinations that are relatively easy to get to. Culture, history and nature (hiking) are my biggest interests, not having access to the beach is not an issue. So, any thoughts?

      6 days traveling from D.F. to Guanajuato, San Miguel Allende, Guadalajara. Is this to much?

      by Bitxos Online Now Nov 10, 2013 at 4:23 AM

      Hi there from Portugal!
      I had an amazing time in a trip to México' 2012 (D.F. > Oaxaca > Palenque > San Cristobal de las Casas) and I'm going to return in the second half January 2014!

      My plans: 2 weeks. First one: arriving México D.F., fly directly to Guanajuato > San Miguel Allende > Guadalajara.
      Second week I will fly from Guadalajara to Cancun; I want to go to Tulum (didn't "study" yet this second part of the trip).

      I Need your help, please, in the first part of my plans. How many days in each place? Should I cut some of them? Or is it good like this? Do you suggest some B&B or Hostel (medium budget). Cleanliness is everything and also the location. Don't need luxury, just a good spot to sleep.
      Thanks in advance!

      Also, I will be glad to help you in the other places of Mexico I've been! ;-)

      Weather In September

      Hello,

      New member here.....

      I have a one way ticket to guadalajara leaving Sept 6. I planned on doing some shopping in the mercados the tequila tour and having fun at night. Am I going to get rained out ? I've been to other countries during rainy season and it wasn't pretty...Guatemala and El Salvador for example. It was almost impossible to get around when it rained.

      My plans were to hang out in Guadalajara a while then make my way to Mexico City (better air when it rains?) an then return home from Acapulco in late september/early october.

      I thought september would be ok for some reason since it's nearing the end of the rainy season...True/False?

      What do you guys think. Is it worth the money and effort to go through with this trip ?

      Thanks!

      hours to buy ticket for buses in New bus station for trip to Guanajuato

      by oslocairo Online Now Feb 7, 2011 at 7:08 PM

      Hi!

      I am arriving at 6:30 am at Guadalajara International Airport. I want to visit Guadalajara for the day, then leave on a bus maybe around 5:00 pm to go to Guanajuato. I know I have to buy a bus ticket for Guanajuato at the New bus staiton between the airport and downtown Guadalajara. I want to assure that I get a ticket, so I thought it would be smart to take a a taxi to the new bus station, buy my ticket, then got visit downtown for the day, by taking a bus from the new bus station to downtown. Then I would return in the late afternoon by bus from downtown and leave on my bus to Guanjuato.

      Does that sound like I have enough time? I will also be returning to Guadalajara to fly out and will try to do the same by arriving early in the morning and visiting

      Will teh ticket offices be open if I arrive around 7:30 am and would I be able to buy a ticket for later that evening at that time?

      locker in the center of town to put my suitcase for the day

      Hi!

      I am flying in Guadaljara and arriving early in the morning. My destination is Guanajuato, but I don't have to be there until the evening. I would like to go into the center of Guadalajara to see the sites. Is there a place that rents lockers for suitcases like at a bus station in the center?

      I understand I am to take the bus from the new bus station to go to Guanajuato, but I also understand it is out of town. Wouldn't it make more sense to store my suitcase in a locker in the center of town? But where?
