    • Inexpensive Parasailing and Cenote

      Riviera Maya 4 hours ago

      We are looking for things to do that are not part of an excursion. We only have 5 days and are at an all inclusive. No need for lunch and tours - just the sport itself. Mostly interested in parasailing and going to cenotes but kids want horseback riding.
      Any help would be appreciated. Thanx!

    • 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.

      Hi, It seems that the southern Caifornian Baja is hard to get to from LA. Flights in February are350 plus return and car rental is impossible from LA as they only allow entry to the 'free trade area'. Can anyone let me know where I can rent a car in LA that includes Mexican Insurance and allows travel to La Paz? Or where I can gat cheaper flights? Thanx ....Dave

      Hi -- I'm traveling to La Paz in December with my boyfriend and my daughter, and I'm wondering about good places to stay in La Paz. We'd love to find a two-bedroom apartment or hotel suite if possible. We're very eager to find some place small, unique, not one of the big resorts. We don't need anything fancy. Low budget is fine. Thanks for any advice!

    • La Paz in late november ?

      by severeeen Online Now Jul 7, 2005 at 11:22 AM

      My fiance and I are going to spend a few days in late november (Thanksgiving holidays) in south baja, and we'res hesitating between Loreto, La paz, and San Jose Del Cabo.We really don't like resorts, and we don't like to be surrounded by throngs of US tourists and loud american discos (we simply hate the spring break atmosphere), but we do like to go out at night and mingle with locals and dance on nortena etc and walk in nice little streets etc... that's why I though La Paz might be a good idea... Basically, we're looking for a location with pretty sandy beaches/ coves, warm water (even in november), no waves, no wind... and more local color at night than... American color. How is La Paz area in late november ? Is the sea pleasant to swim/ snorkel (without a diving suit) ? How bad can the weather get ? Are the beaches in the area exposed to cold winds ? And can we find lovely sandy beaches without buying a tour to one of the islands (we will rent a car) ? Or should we just go to San Jose del Cabo, to be sure to hahve hot weather/ warm water ? THANK YOU :)
