    • Condo / Appartment

      Playa del Carmen Jul 1, 2015 at 7:47 AM

      Hi,
      We are planning our first vacation to Playa del Carmen around December 13th. We are planning a 1 month trip with our 2 sons (12 and 14 years old), we are very excited!

      I know that this is the worst possible time of the year to travel, but with school and everything, this is the only time possible for us. As you can imagine, budget is a big issue. We are looking for a condo/appartment is a safe area, idealy gated but not a muste, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and if possible close to 5th avenue and the beach to avoid taxi and bus travelling. To stick to our budget, we need to stay below 1200$ for a month

      Would anyone have suggestions?? Thanks in advance

      Monterrey Jun 18, 2015 at 7:46 PM

      Hi!
      My boyfriend and I are currently traveling in Texas, we are close to the border and we have two days to spend before we go somewhere else, is it safe enough to just go there and rent an Airbnb place with good reviews? We would not be doing risky things like going out at night, going to clubs etc. just walking around downtown in daytime. I speak enough Spanish for daily communication if that means anything.

      Best combination of low humidity and warm temps year round?

      Mexico Jun 5, 2015 at 9:12 AM

      where in mexico is the best combination of low humidity (under70% ?) and warm temps ( highs 75 F and above, lows maybe 50 in the winter? and in the rainy season(june- october generally?)? we're looking at places to move from BC when we retire, thinking of retirement in about 3-4 years and not sure if we should buy or rent :)
      we've been to Playa del Carmen and puerto Vallarta but only in the winter and I know a lot of places have really humid rainy summer months ... so I guess you could rephrase this as "where in mexico is the best year round conditions near the ocean(either one, gulf or carribean) " I know its fairly subjective but in our case summer being hot and dry is better than hot and 90% humidity
      We prefer a real short distance from the beach or on the beach even better, is there such a place?
      Would love to be around expats. We are from Canada. I am curently in the Canadian Armed Forces for the last 29 1/2 years now serving in Bosnia, Kosovo, The Gulf War, Haiti and Afganistan. My wife is seeking a new home group for NA where we will relocate as well.
      Any help would be great. We are more beach people!

      bird dive-bombing for fish in bay of banderas, close to los muerto beach

      hi, all --

      i can't figure out what kind of bird it is that we saw in PV last week. it glides, has a fairly large wingspan, is dark in color, then all of a sudden folds its wings closed and dives straight vertically into the water.

      the closest i've found by scouring the internet is a neotropic cormorant, but i can't find any pictures of it diving.

      help!

      Cruse options

      Mexico Jun 12, 2015 at 8:54 AM

      We will be taking an 8 day cruise on Princess as a family (31 people). We will be stopping in Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. I was wondering if there are options we should really stay away from or if there are some that are better than others. I do have one granddaughter who is 8 who would love to see a shark. She is so into sharks that she wants to be a marine biologist, despite the fact she has never even ever seen the ocean. I have never been on a cruise, nor have I ever been anywhere I could not see the shore, nor have I ever been out on the open ocean. So suggestions as to what to look for and not look for on a ship would be welcome.

    • Walking from International Bridge to Bus station in Nuevo Laredo?

      by TGAdventurer Online Now Sep 15, 2014 at 4:57 AM

      Hi all,

      I was wondering what the current state of affairs is in N.L.? I will be entering Mexico in the beginning of October and will be taking a bus from N.L. to Guadalajara, and will be in N.L. on a Monday in the late morning and early afternoon. I will be wearing a large backpack and have decent Spanish, not fluent but nicely conversational. If the city is fairly safe at this current time I think it would be fun to walk from the border to Nueva Central de Autobuses located here:

      google.com/maps/place/Nueva+...

      I'm white as they come but am 6 feet tall and muscular, if that makes any difference.

      Is it safe enough to walk at the time I will be in the city? The only post I've seen talking about this is from 2008 and I think it's for a different bus station maybe. Will also be stopping for lunch along the way, probably at a local Taqueria.

      Looking forward to your replies. Thanks!

      by bigguymike Online Now Feb 25, 2014 at 4:51 PM

      When I crossed INTO Mexico using Bridge 2, I was not able to find the Immigration Office and, while I DID HAVE my car permit and insurance etc (which I got on line and by courier), I did not get a tourist card or a stamp in my passport before ending up on the toll road and well into Mexico. I have been in Mexico for two months and now need to get home.
      I am travelling back that same way INTO Texas via Nuevo Laredo Bridge 2 and need instructions on how to find the place where a) I give back my car sticker, and b) where I tell them my sad tale of woe about not having a tourist card. Can anyone give me clear and concise instructions, PLEASE.
      Is this one and the same place for car and immigration?

      Bus from Laredo to Zacatecas

      by Torajiro Online Now Jun 29, 2013 at 6:43 PM

      We are flying in to Laredo, Texas, in mid-August at 20:20. Is it practical to catch a bus that night to go to Zacatecas, Mexico (it can be Mexico City)? If it is possible, what is the best way to do it?

      - Go to a bus depot in Laredo, TX, from the Laredo airport by taxi, and find a night bus to go to Zacatecas?
      - Go across the border (how do we get there; taxi or bus?) and get to the bus depot in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, to catch a bus to Zacatecas?
      - I am reading that, in general in Mexico, it is better to catch a bus at a bus depot without a reservation. Does this apply to this plan?
      - If a reservation is recommended, which one should I book and how?

      Thank you very much!

    • Safe to drive from GDL through Nouevo Laredo?

      by danielleschnell Online Now Jun 5, 2010 at 3:43 PM

      As I live in GDL, I have done this drive several times during the past 2 summers. Given the latest security issues and travel warnings against "nonessential" travel, how safe is it, in reality, to drive the bypass around Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo. I am not one to spook easily but I did read somewhere that a person was carjacked on the cuota from Monterrey to Reynosa. I am a female who will be traveling with my 3 dogs in my car with US plates. Naturally, I would plan on going through the area in the afternoon, sometime during the first part of July. I am, however, worried about coming across roadblocks from the Zetas or other criminal groups. I also need to make the return trip at the beginning of August. As it is ideal for me to drive with my dogs, I would like to make the drive if it is safe?

      Anyone living or traveling there (Mont. or N.L) recently have any advice for me?
