    • wind and water temperature

      We are planning for our trip to Los Barriles for the first time. Our trip will be the week of Christmas this year, and we plan to rent a private house on the beach. We would like to know if the water will be warm enough to swim? Are there any good place snorkel near the shore? For someone who is a beginner swimmer, is the water safe to swim in? We have learned that wind surfing is popular in winter, how strong the wind would be? Will that make it uncomfortable to sit on the beach or swim with the wind? Thank you!

      Medical advice/help.

      Mexico Dec 6, 2014 at 12:34 PM

      A dear friend of mine was seriously injured in a boating accident in Playa del Carmen and had to have emergency surgery to repair several shattered vertebrae. She is stuck in the hospital where she is nervous because she is experiencing difficulty breathing and having a hard time communicating. They feel that she may have blood clots in her lungs as she is having trouble breathing. She is desperately trying to get to a US hospital where she can communicate. The U.S. consulate/embassy is closed until Monday. I am hoping that someone out there in VT land has some advice on how to help her and where to start. She is terrified and scared that she is going to die from complications. Any help or advice is so appreciated.

    • GLBT Community in San Cristobal de las Casas

      by comprero Online Now Jun 6, 2010 at 5:45 AM

      I will be working in San Cristobal for a month this summer and am interested in connecting with the gay, lesbian, bisexual community; I have not been able to find any such information in tour books or on travel websites.

      Please note---I am NOT interested in dating or a hook-up. I have spent a significant time in other parts of Mexico and am aware that it is a very conservative country. I want to be respectful of the cultural differences but am also looking to meet similar folks who I may not otherwise have an opportunity to meet and want to understand what their lives are like in Mexico.

      Thank you for your assistance.

      by lostworld Online Now Feb 16, 2010 at 7:18 AM

      My partner and I have been traveling for close to a year now and would like to find a doctor for some routine check ups. We are currently in Mexico and we will be in San Cristobal de las Casas soon. I have heard there is a small expat community here so we thought it might be a good place to find a doctor. Can anybody recommend a good doctor, preferably english speaking in the area, or a good place to find information. If somebody has information on doctors outside of San Cristobal in the south of Mexico that would also be appreciated. Thanks.

    • In and around San Christobal de las Casas week before Semana Santa

      by Harry05 Online Now Jan 4, 2009 at 6:49 AM

      In the week before Semana Santa (till about Palm Sunday) I will be in and around San Christobal de las Casas, including a sidetrip to Palenque and after that I will continue to Guatemala (Xela, Antigua). About this a few questions:
      • Are there any special religious activities (processions) in this week in SCC or the villages around which are worthwhile visiting (the last I can stay is Palm Sunday)?
      • Good tour companies visiting the villages around SCC and Cañón del Sumidero, already read good things about Na Bolom and Raul and Alegandro. Any recent experiences?
      • Read somewhere the market in San Juan Chamula in this period is not on Sunday but on Friday. Is this corrrect?
      • Any social projects/schools/orphanage for visiting/supporting?
      • Other recommendations in this area?

      Thanks answering,


    • Fly from Oakland, CA, to San Cristobal?

      March 6th I came to Oaxaca and now am living in San Pablo Huitzo. I took the bus to San Cristobal where I found a house I’m going to move into. In June I intend to return to the US for a few weeks and then come back to San Cristobal. My question is: when I return to San Cristobal from Oakland, CA, do I have to do so via Oaxaca and the long bus ride over the mountains, it is possible to fly into San Cristobal, or (as someone has suggested) should I fly to Guatemala and bus from there?
