Hu Guys,I am currently in Mexico City and this is my second time to travel in Mexico City. I love to buy a replica of Galleon or either Sta Maria or the Pinta.. Anyone that knows the place to buy? I tried in the internet and unable to find one. I know there is a boat replica industry in Mexico
we are leaving Chichen Itza to drive to Rio lagartos on new years day. Would it be correct to assume that everyone will be at home and all the shops and restaurants will be closed? At what time will things start to open? Will the cenotes in and around town be open? Have I picked the worst day of the year to visit?
I have been trying to contact Ana Paula at El Dorado Restaurant for a week. I was told by a local florist that the restaurant appears to be under new ownership and is being remodeled. Can you confirm? Is there a new contact?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
I retired to Veracruz & have crossed at Matamoros/Brownsville numerous times but always by car. My problem/question is I am taking a direct bus from Veracruz but they only have one a day & it leaves Veracruz at 6:40 a.m. and arrives in Matamoros at 11:30 p.m. Hate to get a hotel that late & could reserve my extended stay hotel to include day/night I arrive in Matamoros as rate for the week figures out to less than $24 @ day. So even if I got to the hotel at 2:00 a.m. it would be better than paying $40 or more in Matamoros, plus I would still face the same problem the next day getting to my hotel. Do taxi's from Matamoros go into Brownsville? I saw where the approx amount from the Matamoros airport to Brownsville is $35 and the distance from Matamoros bus station would be less. Or would my best bet be to take a taxi to the border & walk across & try & get a Brownsville taxi to my hotel. I am 72 & would rather not walk any further than needed. LOL. PAULETTEJACK@AOL.COM
I bought two rings at a store owned by an Argentinian woman. She also designed the clothing.Any ideas as to what it might be called. She had a small boutique near the city center
Hi everyone, my husband and I are travelling to Mazatlan in March. We have been there before but stayed pretty much around the Malacon and Muchado with one or two days on Stone Island. This time we would like to be a little more adventurous so would love some input on what we should see. We are also interested in travelling around the area may 1-3 hours away from Mazatlan (providing we can get there with public transport). We will be grateful for any input.
Thanks in advance

Can anyone tell me what I SHOULD pay for a ~3.5 mile ride from Sunrock Hotel & Residences to central downtown Cabo. Sunrock is between the highway & the beach(by the hospital) and just past Home Depot(and before Costco). Do buses come out this way?
We have been to Cancun many times. We usually stay off the beaten path where we can mix with the locals. We find that to be much more enjoyable. We like to be able to walk to nearby restaurants, markets and beaches. We are also budget minded travelers. Our requirements for hotel room is a clean room with a comfortable bed, air conditioning and private bath. All that being said, can someone recommend a place to stay for 8 or 10 days in March of 2014? Thanks in advance for the information.
I wondered if airline tickets are available cheaper when purchasing in Oaxaca than let's say on Aeromexico's website? I want to fly from Oaxaca to Los Mochis on December 2 and don't know if the prices will keep rising as the date approaches or are there steady ticket prices to be had at local agencies in Oaxaca? Thanks, JQ
Will be stopping in Progresso on a cruise is the beach near the cruise terminal?
Is is necessary to have a passport for entry to Piedras Negras MX from Eagle Pass Tx for a day trip - need help please, we are hoping to travel from Louisiana to Eagle Pass Tx and wanted to go to Piedras Negras to spend the day
I was recently in Piedras Negras for a day of shopping, eating and drinking. I came home quite disappointed. The Zaragoza Mercado was horrible. Very few true Mexican crafts and a lot of t-shirts. Plus it was empty of customers. For quite a
while it appeared as if me and the 3 other people I was with were the only people
there. On top of all that, the prices were outrageous and the vendors didn't seem
at all receptive to bargaining. Several of the vendors also came across as rude.
Almost as if they didn't want our business. Very much unlike my past experiences
in Nuevo Laredo and Nuevo Progresso.
Went across the street to the Moderno for a couple of beers and a plate of nachos. It
is very nice, but the lack of windows makes it feel a bit dungeon like. Went further into
town to eat at the El Rancho Steakhouse. Not bad, but definitely not great. I wish
I would have stayed at Moderno.
Lastly, it was Dies y Seis and there was really nothing going on. At least not in the
Mercado or the plaza that is down the street from the Mercado.
I can't help but feel that I totally missed the boat. Are there any other places in
Piedras Negras to shop that would have provided a larger and better variety of items?
If so where?
At this point, I would never consider going back to Piedras Negras, nor would I
Should I have gone to Acuna instead?????
PS. The Kickapoo Casino just outside of Eagle Pass is fairly lame. Hold'em poker
and slots only. No other table games of any type.
