    • Inexpensive Parasailing and Cenote

      Riviera Maya 58 minutes 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.

    • 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:

      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!

    • Need help and directions

      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?
      What sort of "fine" should I expect to have to pay to get through the immigration?

    • Traveling by bus to Durango

      by regan_hempfling Online Now Nov 4, 2013 at 10:40 AM

      I am trying to find the cheapest, yet safest, way to travel to Durango. Looking at Greyhound, if I took the bus from my town here in the states to Durango I would have to transfer in Nuevo Laredo. My boyfriend told me that this is where he passed through and it is dangerous. Would I be better off paying more and catching a plane rather than taking the bus??

      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?
