    • jet ski or wave runnerpulling a raft

      We are staying at RIU Palace Peninsula. We saw a jet ski/wave runner pulling an inflatable raft with several people inside. Is there a company in Cancun offering this? How do I find out more information?

    • Geli Dolls /Munecas Geli

      Mexico City Apr 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM

      I currently live in NY, but was looking for someone who is traveling to Mexico City.

      My sister in law bought me a beautiful doll last year when she was on vacation (they are called Munecas Geli) and they only sell them in Mexico City. They are 100% vinyl and have long realistic eyelashes. From what i have researched online, they are sold in the stores Sanborn & Liverpool (I'm not sure if she got them there as well). Anyways, my niece's birthday is coming up, and I would love to get her a Geli doll. The problem I am having is that shipping takes too long from Mexico (about a month). I was wondering if anyone out there is willing to help me by bringing one back to the US (I'll pay for shipping from your state to mine). Does anyone have a clue about these dolls? Or is anyone out there who is traveling now or soon willing to help me? Please email me at

    • Travel from McAllen, TX to Mexico City

      Mexico Apr 14, 2014 at 8:27 AM

      Planning summer travel to Mexico City from McAllen via Monterrey-Saltillo-Matehuala-San Luis Potosi-Querétero, etc., I've driven McAllen-Monterrey plenty, but haven't Monterrey-Querétaro, in a few years. Any info on those who have would be greatly appreciated. General "safety" (I'm not one of those super "paranoid" to travel to Mexico, just take my precautions as I do when I travel anywhere), road quality, clean rest/gas stops, etc. Many thanks!

      Tulum Apr 8, 2014 at 12:31 PM

      Does anyone know of good place to stay on South end of beach close to Sian Ka'an reserve? We stayed at Rancho San Eric last year and loved it but it is $210/nt. we really just need privacy and a place to sleep. Pretty easy going. Thought about staying with "naked beach guy" on the reserve but I think that's a little much for me.
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    • Moving to Mexico

      by jerryjan Online Now Sep 18, 2011 at 2:24 PM

      I moved from Mexico to Ecuador about 9 months ago. While Ecuador is nice, it doesn't compare to Mexico for a multitude of reasons. I lived in Ajijic in the Lake Chapala area and don't want to return to that area - not that I didn't love it but I'm looking for a little more of an adventure and a place that doesn't have a high cost of living because so many gringos live there. That being said, what I've read about Morelia sounds very interesting. Would someone be willing to write about rental homes, apartments, what it's like living there, etc.

      I do have a little concern about moving to a city where there are few gringos - I don't want to be too lonely. I am learning Spanish but I'm a long way from fluent and I would continue lessons in Morelia. Are there places where gringos gather to get to know one another?

      Thank you so much for any info you are willing to offer.

How do I find out about her temperament, her health, and possibly visiting to see if she remembers me? Is there any information I can provide to her current caretakers about her very early care?

      planning time to visit colonial cities around Guanajuato

      by oslocairo Online Now Aug 24, 2010 at 10:09 AM


      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.

      How far from Mexico City is Morelia?

      by lunabelle Online Now Jul 5, 2004 at 9:31 AM

      I am planning a trip to Mexico in late August. The plan is to fly into MexCity, take a bus to Guadalajara, spend the night, take a bus to Puerto Vallarta, spend 6 nights, take bus to Morelia, spend one night, and then take a bus to Mexico city to fly out at 2pm. Is this a good plan? Is Morelia close enough to Mexico City to get a bus from Morelia in the morning and arrive on time for our flight out?

      monarch butterflies during New Year Eve celebrations?

      by marktynernyc Online Now Nov 23, 2003 at 1:08 PM

      Thinking of going to Morelia for New Years ( have heard it's a beautiful colonial Spanish Baroque city) I'm also interested in seeing the monarch butterfly preserve which is about 2 hrs from Morelia. Have read the butterflies colonies are at their peak in February. Does anyone have any experience with the butterflies around new year's? I was thinking about Gaudalarja for New Year's also - but I 'm gravitating towards something a bit less urban. Any comments or thoughts appreciated.
